This past Monday, we announced the Lake Travis Lifestyle December Giveaway winner. A big congrats goes out to Melissa Kreutner. And a big thank you to our giveaway partners — Sonesta Bee Cave and Hill Country Galleria.
We wrapped up 2016 with the biggest LTL giveaway ever and Melissa walked away with a 2-night hotel stay at Sonesta Bee Cave plus a $500 gift card to the Hill Country Galleria.
We’re looking to partner with local businesses and offer you many more exciting giveaways in 2017!
On Wednesday, we heard from our north shore resident Sandra Spicher with a heart-warming story about a local artist.
Have you been fighting the urge to clean and organize every nook and cranny of your home? Something about the end of the calendar year gives us the energy to finish off any lingering tasks and move forward. You might just decide to paint!
So on Thursday, we passed along some home improvement tips. Our local Decorator for Hire, Alicia Autrey, answered the question — What Comes First: Flooring or Paint?
Thanks for always reading, try to stay warm out there, and I’ll catch you next week …
