First things first, I just want to thank Lauren from  Tutus and Tea Parties for introducing me to DecoArt! She shared one of their statuses on Facebook where they were giving away some  of their product for people to try out, the only thing you had to do was email them (this was a while back) I had NEVER heard of this company before so I checked them out  first and I instantly liked them!  Here is a little bit of info about them in case you haven't heard of them. 

From their site:

Product Overview

"DecoArt has one of the widest selection of paints and finishes for arts, crafts, and home decorating. DecoArt has a full product line which includes over 25 brands of paint and finishes.  Our products are sold in all major craft chain stores in the United States, as well as having a strong market presence internationally in over 75 countries abroad.-via"

And let me tell you  I could not  have found out about them at a better time! I've been wanting to start crafting ever since I joined Pinterest. And I am 100% sure I am NOT the only one!

Anyways, after sending DecoArt the email and providing them with my address I patiently waited for the next couple of days for my package to arrive, and when it did I was Shocked!

I was expecting 2 maybe 3 samples, but never this! Instead they sent me their 'ink' effect in a bunch of colors!

12 ink effects to be exact! And that's not all!

They also sent me the 'ink effect" base coat!

Now all I gotta do is hit Pinterest for some neat ideas! Once I decide on something I will show you guys the end result :)

After today's post I hope you have learned a valuable lesson, if you follow a blog make sure to follow them in some other way, maybe via FACEBOOK, TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, PINTEREST, etc. That way you never miss an opportunity like this one!

Also have you ever tried any of DecoArts products? If so which ones?
