HGTV Handmade’s Crafters on YouTube (L to R): MegAllanColeCrafts, HGTVCrafternoon, simpleDIYs and Anneorshine

The team over at HGTV Handmade (some of YouTube’s best crafters) had a friendly competition going on with their “White Craft Challenge.” Much like the renowned HGTV Star “White Room Challenge,” where competitors must each decorate an all-white room with very limited supplies, the stars of HGTV Handmade each decorated super snooze-worthy “white” lamps following just two requirements: One, they could only use what they had in their current possession (no trips to the craft store allowed!) and two, when the lamp was finished, it must still be able to function as a light source.

Watch as the crew revealed their completed lamps (then see how you can win them!):

Last week, we gave away Marianne and Meg’s lamps (they’ve already been shipped to their winners!). Today, we’re offering up the lamps crafted by Ann and Julia (below).

Two lucky Design Happens readers will each win a lamp. To enter for a chance to win one, simply leave a comment below. This week’s question: Living room lamps — do you like them to be “matchy-matchy,” or do you prefer them to each have their own look?

You may only comment once to be considered, and you don’t have to purchase anything to win; a purchase will not increase your chances of winning. Odds depend on total number of entries. Void where prohibited by law. Only open to legal residents of 50 U.S., D.C. or Puerto Rico, and you must be at least 18 years of age to win. All entries (comments) must be entered between 3:00 p.m. ET on August 1, 2014 and 3:00 p.m. ET on August 4, 2014. Subject to full official rules. By leaving a comment on the blog, you acknowledge your acceptance to the Official Rules. ARV of each prize: $50.00. ARV of both prizes: $100.00.

Congratulations to this giveaway’s random winners Melissa, Lorraine and Char. (Check your email!) Come back next month for another great giveaway.

I always feel just a little bit calmer when I step out the door into my garden. Checking on blossom progress, discovering a new vegetable sprout and even, yes, weeding mellows me out. If gardening isn’t your thing, though, there are many ways to make your yard into a sanctuary, like setting a reading bench in the shade or adding a simple decorative outdoor fountain.

For this Freebie Friday giveaway, three lucky Design Happens readers will win their choice from the three fountains below from LampsPlus.com. No backyard? These prizes would make beautiful indoor fountains, too.

Lamps Plus - Beautiful Indoor and Outdoor Fountains From LampsPlus.com

Relaxation awaits! Each of three winners may choose between (left to right) the modern Column Solar-Powered Fountain, the Aged Bronze Buddha Indoor/Outdoor Fountain and the Seven Cascades Cutaway Outdoor Fountain.

Each day of Design Camp provides you with the opportunity to learn and network with the most respected professionals in the interior design business.

Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Michelle R.!

Insect-inspired pieces were everywhere at this spring’s recent High Point Furniture Market, from fabrics to decorative objects to wall decor. My favorite take on the trend, though? The Pheromone by Christoper Marley collection of original insect art pieces. Marley takes mounted butterfly art to the next level, arranging some of the most colorful bees, wasps, flies, dayflying moths into an amazing mosaic that is a focal point from afar…

Congratulations to this month’s random winner, NotWaving! Check back next month for another great giveaway.

On the first warm days of spring, I always look around my home and think “Who picked out all this stuff?”After staring at the same sofa, pillows, blankets and window treatments all winter long, I’m ready for a change that won’t break my budget.  That’s the beauty of slipcovers: They’re an inexpensive way to refresh and renew your home decor with fresh colors and patterns for the new season. Can you believe these armchairs are slipcovered?

Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Kristin! Check back on April 4 for another great giveaway.

I’m sensing signs of spring all around East Tennessee: My yard’s first crocuses and daffodils are starting to bloom and temperatures are climbing, if only a little. That’s all the encouragement I need to start thinking about spring parties. A set of table linens in fresh spring hues is a great way to get ready for that first warm-weather event, and this month we’re loving Coyuchi’s new line of natural-fiber tabletop pieces featuring colors inspired by flowers and plants. The company even has a collection inspired by our March Color of the Month, Orchid:

Organic Table Linens From Coyuchi
One lucky reader will win 1 set of napkins, 1 table runner and 4 placemats from the Coyuchi tabletop collection of their choice. Read on to enter for a chance to win this great prize!

Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Zeeone! Come back on March 7 for another great giveaway.

I just returned from Altitude Design Summit, where I met fabulous makers of all sorts: jewelry designers, sewing mavens, interior designers, fashion bloggers and so much more. In addition to great panels and conversations about blogging, photography and DIY, there were some pretty amazing decorations. Check out this dessert table by HGTV.com contributor Kim Stoegbauer of the The TomKat Studio:

Paper Backdrop from Cricut Lounge

I was also blown away by the paper decor at a garden-themed party, especially this butterfly-covered dress.  The cool thing? The decor for both of these spaces was cut using Cricut’s all-new Explore cutting machine, which lets you upload your own designs or try out their pre-designed templates.
