The other day, the Ram showed up in our messy garage and said,
"Wow, honey, you've got a lot of projects going on here!"
Somehow, I think he meant "It would be nice if you finished your projects before starting a new one . . ."
Tell me I'm not the only one thinking this is what he really meant. Tell me your relationship goes through the same sort of communication, where she says something, but means something else - you know - "CoupleSpeak." And that the CoupleSpeak just gets more real when you throw a DIY project into the mix.
But don't just tell me about your CoupleSpeak - if you tell 3M Frameworks
about it, you could win a prize package of building essentials, $250 if your translation wins, and there is even TWO $5000 prizes if you put your CoupleSpeak moment on camera and win!
3M Products Giveaway
It's easy to enter this giveaway. You can enter to win a prize package of 3M Products including:
Scotch Blue Tape - great for painting rooms or specific areas on a furniture project. A must for any DIYer.
Three Stages of Sanding - another iconic product from 3M that every DIYer must have. I use this system, starting with coarse to medium grit, and then using the fine between coats for that ultra smooth finish.
Safety Equipment Including Gloves, Respirator and Eyewear - I find wearing safety equipment gives me greater confidence to tackle a DIY project. Then I can concentrate on cutting or nailing, instead of thinking about sawdust getting in my eyes or inhaling lungfuls of sawdust. The 3M Tekk eye wear are surprisingly stylish - the Ram's stole my pair for working at the Momplex!
3M Lead Check Swaps - No longer do you need to send off a test to check if your walls or that antique dresser that you are dying to refinish is painted with dangerous lead paint.
How To Enter
Entering this giveaway is really simple. Just come up with a translation (make it funny, because you could ALSO win $250 over at 3M) that has to do with DIY, and enter it in the 3M Frameworks Facebook Page
And enter your translation into the form. You can also browse other translations for ideas and laughs. This will get you entered to win $250 weekly sweepstakes with 3M.
Then come back here and leave a comment to this post with your translation.
That's it! How easy is that?
And if you are up to the challenge, you can enter to win one of two $5000 prizes for entering a video CoupleSpeak moment!
We hope you take a second to share this giveaway on Facebook
This giveaway will be open until Sept 14, 2011. One winner will be drawn at random and receive a prize package including the above mentioned products. Special thanks to the kind folks over at 3M for sponsoring this giveaway and making great products that I use every day! Lord knows what I would do without their sanding sponges and blue painter's tape!
