Meet Frankie and Ana White's Alaskan Vacation Giveaway

I have been slacking when it comes to projects for the past few months. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that it is because this guy came into my life.

His name is Frankie and he is a collie puppy. I love him to death, but he makes doing any kind of project near impossible. He is into everything and he definitely keeps me on my toes. I promise that I have ideas for some new projects and I will be working on them soon.

I don't have a new project for you today, but I do have to tell you about an amazing giveaway!

I first tried my hand at woodworking about 3.5 years ago. I usually make the gifts that I give my family. I needed an Easter present for my 3 nieces. I found Ana White's website and I decided to try making these beach chairs. I had fun making them and the kids really liked them. From that point, I was hooked on woodworking!
Since then, I have built several projects from her website and book. Here are just some of them. I have more, but I don't want this post to go on forever!
Working on these projects actually inspired me to make a few of my own plans. Some of them can be found on this blog. Not only does Ana White build furniture, but a couple years ago she built a duplex from the ground up and this year she built a cabin in the middle of nowhere! She is kind of my hero.  

Her family is actually going to be starring in diy Network's Building Off the Grid - Alaska Range. It premieres December 15th. To celebrate the premiere, Ana White is giving away an Alaska Dream Vacation. If you win, you even get to stay in the cabin that they built on the show! This was Frankie's reaction to the giveaway. He was pretty shocked!
You can check out the details of the giveaway at Even if you don't win, be sure to check out the show on the 15th!

Until the 15th comes around, I'm sure Frankie will be keeping me busy!
