From My Front Porch To Yours is having a party!! I am just over the moon and sooo giddy over this party it is not even funny! I am inviting all of you my followers and all of your friends as well!! I have also invited another special lady! Who could it be you may be wondering!?

Why none other than Ms. Annie Sloan herself!!! Are you as excited as me yet?  I contacted Annie yesterday and mentioned how much I appreciate all of my followers new and old and I wanted a way to thank them. I wanted it to be something special for y'all! She so graciously agreed to come to our party!

  We all love Annie and her awesome Chalk Paint and go on and on about it but have you ever wanted to get to know Annie better? Have you ever thought how great it would be to be able to talk to her? Well here is your chance!!! Think of ONE question that you would love to have Annie  answer. Then leave me a comment letting me know you are a follower and what your ONE question would be. Yes, you need to be a follower because this party is a thank you for all of my followers. If you leave a question and are not a follower your question will not be considered.
 On 8/01 I will review all of the questions submitted. I will then choose 4-5 of those questions to ask Annie for you. Depending on her schedule will depend on when I can post the interview and when you can see whose questions were chosen but I am hoping  it will be within the next few weeks. Annie is a very busy lady though! I am also working on a second surprise for y'all!! You will want to stay tuned!!!

So get your party dresses on girls and send me those questions and be sure to invite all of your friends! The more the merrier! Grab the button from my sidebar! I think I made it right!Ha!       

                        Linking Up To Savvy Southern Style Wow Us Wednesdays!                                                                                       

Ps. Don't cha just love the party girl graphic!? I got it from over at The Graphics Fairy!!


  1. Cool, Pamela! Hmmm, I guess I would probably be interested to know if the chalk paint came about on purpose or by accident? You know how sometimes discoveries are made by accident or was Annie determined to make something that would do exactly what her chalk paint does.

  2. Awesomesauce! Love this! My question is about using her chalk paint on walls? Can you and how? I would love a beautifully distressed wall :)

  3. I think I would like to know if she plans on developing a paint that doesn't need waxed. The waxing is a hard step I think...I'm a follower and very excited for you!

  4. This is great, Pamela! Since I'm just now getting familiar with these paints (and so eager to try them) I don't really have a question. But I'm really looking forward to the interview!

  5. How about two questions?! Does Annie prefer to be physically involved when creating, as I do, or is she more of a sit and ponder type?
    Also, if one wants to paint over a waxed chalk paint piece one day can the wax be painted over or does it need to be sanded off first?

  6. Hi Pamela.

    I'm a follower.

    Will Annie be introducing any new colors in the near future?

  7. That is so cool. Chalk paint of different colors.

    Paula, your newest follower

  8. I am your newest follower! I would love to ask Annie if she prefers the more neutral colors or the bold, dark colors for furniture. Also I agree with the wax question. I have painted a bunch of pieces and have yet to master the waxing step. I seem to mess up everything with the wax. :(

  9. Here is my blog info, it is pretty new!

  10. Here's my question: As a woman who followed her dreams and invented a new product, what would her advise be to other women who are also trying to follow a dream or launch a new product?


  11. Okay, I now have a question but it's similar to one already asked. What steps, if any, are needed if you are painting over a piece that's already been waxed?

  12. I am wondering if I can use a paint sprayer with chalk paint and still get the same "time worn" finish? And, if I spray with it do I need to thin the paint? Water?
    Sorry, I could go on and on......
    Lucky girl! I want to talk to Annie too! :)


I love when ya stop by so leave me a comment if ya have some time! I always try and respond but sadly enough sometimes I am unable to return the love due to noreply blogger status.
