Life and Style Makeover

Over at Project Create a Home they are having a life and style makeover giveaway. We are to enter our best story as to why we need to win this. Well here goes.

First of all I would like to say that I am no more deserving of this makeover than any of the others. We all need a little lift and help from friends, from time to time.
This is one of those times for me. Last January I became a true Empty Nester. i had been forewarned by many that I should prepare for this and in some ways I did. I did not expect the emotional adjustment that it would be.
I am at the place where some things in my life are in desperate need of a makeover. My health and physical appearance as well as some much needed updating that needs to be done around the house.
Even though my daughter is married now, her health is still a concern as I have shared in recent posts. This takes me in yet another direction. I could definitely use some help getting focused at home, and could use some much needed, helpful advice to make some budget friendly updates and changes around the house.
I would like for my home to be warm, friendly and inviting so others feel welcome and at home too. I am on a limited budget since we also have a son in college. I definitely could use the help and inspiration to get my creativity flowing once again. This girl would be grateful to win this prize! Jackie

All sound like perfect reasons to me for a "makeover"...hope you win!! I definitely need some all (in all those areas) but especially with creativity. Never been totally creative but when the kiddos were little, they were much more easily "big girl" creativity needs a bit of a jolt!

Hello Jackie, back on March 10th you left a note on my blog and I wanted to wait to respond as I know your daughter's health was on your mind. Were you asking about the green and blue comforter on the bed in the picture on my sidebar or the one that was in the post labeled Does anyone know what we are doing?
