Updates + Brad/Finish Nailer GIVEAWAY

Friday, February 25th, 2011

I’ve finally come up for air after yesterday’s photo shoot, what a great day!  It was a fantastic experience and I snapped a lot of ‘behind the scenes’ pics.  Don’t hate me but I’m actually going to save the story until the ‘Christmas Ideas’ issue hits the stands ~ it will just make more sense when you see it in print.  Besides, who wants to see Christmas pictures right now?  Not me!!!

A big thank you to all of you who left such encouraging comments, and to the amazing BH&G team: Gayle (the stylist), King (the photographer) and Anne (the editor) who helped create some real magic around here.  I just can’t wait to see it all in print for the 2011 holiday season, you’re going to love it! 

The winners of the Kahili Creations giveaway are  #203 Megan Clark and #909 Karen Jerread ~ congratulations! 

Last weekend, we made some great progress on my boy’s room, installing some board and batten along his walls, it’s looking really fantastic.  I really love the tall white wall treatment contrasting with the intense teal blue walls, can’t wait to reveal his room when it’s finally done.

Two power tools that we used to get the job done were the Campbell Hausfeld 18 gauge 2-in-1 Brad Nailer & Stapler and the Campbell Hausfeld Angle Finish Nailer.
