Guess the DIY Blogger ANSWERS!

So did you guess which one was me yesterday? Ah yes, poor little mullet girl. My big sister Kim, who was fourteen at the time, actually gave me this haircut and snipped clean through my ear while doing so! I was eleven years old in this picture and apparently just experimenting with makeup. I think I must have completely forgotten to put mascara on one of my eyes. LOL!

then and now

So who was the first to guess all 29 correctly? Well there were so many of you who were very close, but finally one person…one blogger…one true DIY fan rose to claim victory!

    Thank you for doing this. It was so much fun trying to guess who’s who. We love Lowes! So I was determined to give this opportunity a try. I actually had two laptops going side-by-side last night with the photos of all the bloggers on one, and on the other, I would pull up each blog to compare photos. I listed my answers on a pad of paper……Wow, was I way off!

    This was really a lot of fun and I learned about many new bloggers too.

    Thanks again!

    Haha, thanks, Beth. The bowl cut was as awkward as I could find on limited time last night! This was fun! I was so thankful when you posted that there was a winner, so I could stop trying. I didn’t even know it was me at that point! Super fun!!! :)

      I have absolutely no problem making fun of my former self and welcome others to notice the wonky-non-mascara’ed eye :).

    Okay….best part: I totally pegged you IMMEDIATELY! Ridiculously cute….my tween self was equally as cute/awkward/amazing/makeupchallenged. I love it. No, really…people have been known to cackle when they see my 8th grade yearbook picture. It’s amazing. If only I would have had a mullet. TRUMPED! Worst part: I totally spent like 45 minutes furiously scribbling on an envelope, only to find out that a winner had been picked 30 minutes prior. I SWEAR I woulda won. (nope. 45 minutes and I was still frustrated by about 5 of you.) Anyways, just an awesome giveaway. ~ V

    I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this post was great.
    I don’t know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already ;
    ) Cheers!
