DAY 10........ANNE - HOUSE OF ANNE CHALK PAINT GIVEAWAY



I WOULD LIKE TO INTRODUCE TO YOU....ANNE SKOUGARD OF HOUSE OF ANNE




I found Anne through the U.S Annie Sloan Chalk Paint distributing company and found her blog and her facebook.  I was quickly a fan because this lady knows her stuff...she trains people on techniques and how to use this fabulous paint.  I have browsed pictures/posts on her blog and it's just delicious to look at.  I have entered her giveaways and I had to ask her if she would be part of my celebration.   The fact that she said yes, has got me over the moon!    Im grateful for her generousity and I hope you all with take the time to read her blog, because she sneaks some giveaways in there too!


Anne is a U.S.A Stockist for Annie Sloan Chalk Paint


Here is how Anne became House of Anne and the Chalk Paint guru.


I majored in Business and Design, working in the industry for years (63 years old here so figure).  I had a Design Studio in the Pacific N.W. where I specialized in design for Recreational Homes....which took me to Scottsdale, AZ and I lived for 12 years.  Color is my “thing”.....and I love paint, so while in Scottsdale I switched gears and started a “paint company” where we were named “the painted ladies” by a local paint manufacturing company.  I fauxed my way to So. California in 2006 and have been in paint/colors til even now.  I was the 4th Stockist to join Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in September of 2010......My charter now is to teach.....to share.....and to paint my way to destination events and workshops.  I LOVE PAINT and I love Annie!


Anne with Annie Sloan


Here is how Anne describes herself on her blog which is full of information on workshops, trips, and beautiful pictures of Chalk Paint transformations and techniques......


Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm....I am a "whirl wind", which begins with my Gemini gender. I am impromptu but organized....I am impetuous but a planner. I love beautiful clothes but you'll find me covered in paint. I need to learn continually and play games with words. What does that mean....I like to see how words feel on my lips when I say them out loud. Strange I know. I have been in design, faux finishing and PAINT for years and I imagine that'll never stop. I have a wonderful husband, three grown children, 11 grandchildren, three step sons and three step grandchildren. Follow my blog and you'll learn all you really want to know. I am a Murphy Brown and Auntie Mame....just ask my friends.

And here are some of Anne's friends, that join her for workshops to learn her techniques and have a blast with this bundle of energy!
