Lovely Crafty Weekend #98 and GIVEAWAY!

It’s the freakin weekend people! Did you all have a good week? It feels like winter here which has my mind wandering past Thanksgiving, but I hope some of you still have Fall projects to share :) Let’s bring it back people, regardless of the fact that Starbucks has busted out the eggnog already.

But back to the point, let’s talk GIVEAWAY!!! The kind folks at Home Depot and Ryobi want to give you the Ryobi Compact Drill starter kit, from their One+ collection of cordless tools!

I’ve used mine several times so far, and it’s so much lighter than my husbands! It’s perfect anytime you have to get into a small space or work above your head. Plus, the batteries and chargers have been re-designed to be more energy efficient than their predecessors. With this kit you get:

  • Includes one 1/2 in. cordless compact drill
  • Two 18-volt lithium-ion batteries
  •  A 60-minute dual-chemistry charger
  • A tool bag
And once you have the charger and batteries, you can buy the interchangeable “tool” parts for SO cheap. This is a great way to start your very own cordless tool collection! To win the Ryobi Drill set, use the Rafflecopter widget below:

  1. Oh! I would love to have this drill for Dan for Christmas!! He could get rid of the crappy ones he has!!

  2. Ricki Duke says:

    I need this drill for my own. My husband has his power tools. I need my own so when I need to fix my own projects I can find the power tool in my craft room where I know where it is. Not have to go search high and low to try and find his. Putting up shelves in the craft room last week should have been a piece of cake. But it turn out a long project cause I had to go and hunt for the drill! Would be nice to have the tools in the craft room to begin with! Love to win! Thanks for the chance.

  3. I have RA and it has really cut back on the things I am able to do…esp. when I have to use the hubs tools. I feel I could do so much more if I had tools that I could at least pick up!

  4. Hey there! Thanks so much for the feature and for hosting! Lovely party you’ve got here!

  5. Kristi - CbK says:

  7. I could *so* use this! My cordless drill just died! Thanks for the entry!

  18. I too would love this for my self. I have too use my husbands drill frequently and it is very heavy!!! This one sounds wonderful!!

  19. I would love to win this for my husband! I was going to a different home improvement store (because we don’t have a Home Depot here) to get him one next week for Christmas! He needs a new drill and wants the lith.ion battery. Plus I figure if it’s lighter I will like it better too!! hehe!

  25. so my husband can do some projects on my Honey Do List :)

  26. Julie Kraft says:

    I would love to win the drill so I would have a drill that is mine all mine and then maybe, just maybe, some of the honey do projects around my house would get done since I would be the one doing them!

  27. because we’re moving into our first house next month!

  28. Rachael H. says:

    I would love to win this drill for my husband! He is starting to build his tool collection :)
    Thanks for the chance!

  29. I love the idea of having my own drill without using my husbands!

  30. I would love a drill– I especially like how light and compact it is!

  31. I just started experimenting with fixing up old furniture and this would sure make things a whole lot easier and faster! I love that it has two batteries, so you don’t have to stop your project to charge the one if it runs low. :)

  32. oh I have been drooling over this for a while but the real reason so I have my own! The hub’s doesn’t keep his charged errrrrrr!

  33. Having moved into m y “new house” built in the late 1950s just 6 months ago, I have LOTS of projects to complete and could definitely use some “help” with this!

  34. We just started updating our guest bathroom – gutting it and starting from scratch! Love to prove to my husband I’m handy with a drill of my own.

  35. I’d love to win the drill ,not only for homerepair, but especially for crafting.
    But I’m from Germany, so I hope this is an international giveaway.

  36. I’d love to have this so I can try my hand at some woodwork diy projects.

  37. Wow! What an awesome giveway!!

  38. My husband would love to have a drill. His drill has slowly died over the years and he is now having to borrow my dad’s as we fix up our rental house.

  39. What a great giveaway!!

  40. Wow, thanks for posting this giveaway! I would love to win these great tools. I have been saving a while for a set all my own, since I tend to borrow a friend’s or dad’s tools all the time. I guess it’s time to be “a big girl” and have a set all to myself. I have a ton to projects to do, and this would be fabulous to have to get started! Thanks so much, and keep up the great work!
