I won some Schawg

Matt's basement workshop has a monthly schwag drawing. I usually enter after Matt post something reminding people like me there are only a few days left to enter.

On april 2nd I was reading the post in my RSS reader and was surprised to see my name listed as a winner for the March schwag drawing. By the time I could get to my email I had an email from Matt congratulating me and requesting my shipping information, that was Tuesday   I was really surprised on Friday when my wife texted me and told me that my prize had been delivered.

So what did I win? I won a Minwax Tool Box Kit

  1. What a cool bunch of schwag! Congrats! Now go buy a lottery ticket. :)

  2. That's a nice prize! I know you'll enjoy using everything in there with all the projects you do!

  3. I got one of these a few months back as a consolation prize for a Minwax furniture refinishing contest. It's a pretty nice setup.
