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!
