March 17, 2014

It's a Mrs. Meyer's #GetMessyContest! Win a custom-designed creativity center, fully stocked with arts & crafts supplies, PLUS a party for up to 30 friends, led by Gabrielle Blair of Design Mom.

You Guys! I’m going to host a crafting party at your house! With up to 30 of your friends! For reals!

Here’s the story: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day is hosting a Get Messy Contest that encourages families to have fun getting messy together — then enjoy straightening up. And guess what the Grand Prize is? A custom-designed creativity center, fully stocked with arts & crafts supplies, PLUS a celebration for up to 30 friends, led by yours truly. (That’s me!)

Yes, indeed. Mrs. Meyer’s asked me to help host the party, and to come up with cool crafts the guests can make, and I responded instantly, “Yes, please!” So I’ll be at the party too! If you’re the Grand Prize Winner, I’ll be heading your way (by plane or by car, depending on where you live). I’ll come to your house, and I’ll lead the crafting, and I’ll chat up your guests, and I’ll Instagram the whole thing. Let’s take a selfie together at the party!

Want to enter the contest? It’s a really fun one. Snap an image of a messy crafting situation at your house and upload it with the hashtag #GetMessyContest. Your friends and family can vote for your messy picture, and the top 10 finalists with the most votes will receive a Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Gift Bucket and will be entered for the grand prize. From there, the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day team (and me!) will come to the home of the Grand Prize Winner, install the custom creativity center and host a party!! You can find more details at GetMessyContest.com.

The last day to upload an image is March 28th, so you have just under two weeks left to enter. And I hope you do enter! Because I want to come to your home so we can get our crafting on.

I’m super excited about this contest, and happy as can be about working with Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day. I’ve been using their products for years. I was first drawn in by the vintage vibe of their labels, and kept coming back for the amazing aromatherapeutic scents (lemon verbena! geranium!) and because the products are really hardworking. Bonus, the products are earth-friendly too — biodegradable, made from naturally occurring ingredients, packaged in recyclable bottles, and never tested on animals — for example, their dryer sheets are compostable!

I’m excited to see your messy photos — I’ll be watching the #GetMessyContest photo gallery. I hope you win, because I’d love to meet you! : ) Okay. Now I’m dying to hear what you think of the contest. Are you going to enter? Do you have any crafty messes at your house to take pictures of?

I was just complaining about the state of our one, small “art cabinet” the other day. I would be so happy to have a craft space redesign! And an art party!

Yes! OMGoodness my closet (which is part clothes part crafty awfulness) is a disaster! oh man! The only thing I have to get past is actually posting it on the internets!

What a fantastic contest! I don’t usually enter contests, but I think I just might have to… cheers to messes!

Is this open to us in Europe as well?


5 Sally March 17, 2014 at 2:38 pm

Oh, it would be so fun to meet you! And I love their rhubarb scent. I’d use that one to clean everything with.

Sad, sad. sad. We leave in England and don’t have Mrs Meyers brand here (I loved the lemon verbena spray when we lived in the States!) so we can’t even try to win to have Design Mom for a crafting session which would have been fun, fun, fun!

Such a great competition and you wouldn’t have to travel far to come to my place where there is always a mess – crafty or otherwise ;)

Mrs Meyers products are so lovely. I always struggle to choose a scent as they’re all so delicious!

I’m hyperventilating. Gotta get busy.

Ohhhhhh ….. this is right up my alley – I mean right up my “craft room mess” and I do mean MESS! Would love a Designed room with a party and THE Design Mom too!

I’d love to have you come to my house (I’m often talking about, “My acquaintance Gabrielle is doing this”– like you actually know me) and I’d love to meet you in person, but this contest is so wrong for me and my family. We don’t really make craft messes together. We make plenty of other toy-related messes, but I don’t really do crafts. We make art, and I make art as an individual outlet, but I wouldn’t say we make messes with which we need cleaning products.

Can I enter my preschool/kindergarten classroom? We make some SERIOUS crafty messes! :D


12 Jocelyn Parks March 17, 2014 at 6:36 pm

Pick me!


13 Ainsley March 17, 2014 at 6:40 pm

This sounds FANtastic! I am in it to win it! :)

Best contest ever!

I am an Activities officer in an Aged Care Facility in NSW, Australia. We make heaps of craft mess, especially with glitter, lately. (Don’t know what that’s about?) Anyway, you could come for a fun visit. We would even let you stay in one of our beds and enjoy three meals a day. Think about it?

Does Play-Doh count as crafting? If so, I’m in!

Best prize ever!!
