Thanks TOH + Updates

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

First of all, thank you everyone for sharing your opinions on bunk beds!  Wow, it is so great reading your insight (read 100+ fantastic comments here if you’re considering them too), I’m so grateful for your thoughts!

Second, I’d like to say thanks to This Old House for the feature in the March issue – they asked me to submit pictures of my DIY drying rack for their article featuring great ideas from bloggers (you’ll recognize several of your favorites!)

The rack is still one of my favorite DIY projects to date and I use it almost daily.

Find the full how to build it in this old post!

     

Exciting news, I’ll be updating the blog soon, giving it a more polished look, but all the navigation features will still be there (Project Gallery, Style Files, etc.) All of the ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ links will be categorized in an easy to browse gallery too, you’ll love that! Finally, I copied all the past magazine articles last night on my antiquated scanner (took forever) but if you’re interested you can read them all here – just click on the cover.

Are y’all ready for Valentine’s Day? My daughter chose that day for her birthday party so I’ve got to get busy decorating… no school on Friday so we’ll have 14 little girls in our house tomorrow evening, crafting, eating, and watching movies. So romantic right?  Ah, the sacrifices of parenthood!  :)

Some Thank Yous

Friday, August 24th, 2012

Hi all, happy weekend!  First, thanks so much to all of you for your helpful comments and emails yesterday in our hunt for a trestle table, I’m so grateful for all of your insight!

I’d like to thank a few magazines for their very kind features this month.  Thanks so much to Fresh Style Magazine for the feature in their holiday issue, filled with so many ideas for the upcoming season, pick it up on newsstands or buy it here

Finally a big thank you to all of YOU!  I don’t say it often enough, but I should tell you how grateful I am to all of you who continue to read this blog.  I appreciate you all so so much, it’s hard to convey it in words, but it’s so true.

I’ve got several projects both large and small in the works right now, one is another kitchen in a second emergency shelter we’ve adopted through the Alma Project, and we have several amazing sponsors helping out again.  We’re knee deep into that full room remodel and I’ll have another new kitchen to show you in a few short weeks.  Can’t wait!  

Have a great weekend!
