House Update:

OK so we are almost at the starting gate, open house is this coming Sunday Aug 2, (see listing here) and we have been working non-stop trying to get the place in tip top shape. If I can give you one piece of advise, always keep on top of the DIY jobs. Honestly, most of the things that we have had to do, could have been done a long time ago and as a result, me less how do I say less b_t_hy?

For those who don't know and how can you not cause we were jumping and screaming for joy, we got our dream house (see here). I am so excited because my studio now if I am not mistaken has doubles in size (lower floor see pic called other bedroom) and really is in move in condition. I am so excited and invite everyone to come to my studio Open House in December.

Anyway I ill keep you posted, thank you to all who have called and sent e-mail request I will be catching up on those this weekend.

Wooohoooo!!!! Congratulations! That's fantastic. You are such an amazing, creative person. This is fabulous news. I have a feeling it's just the beginning. Just think what you'll be creating in your (picture Showcase Showdown type voice here) Brand New Craft Studiooooo! (Picture jumping and clapping and screaming!) It's gorgeous. Your whole house is, but 'specially your new crafty spot. You are going to love bungalow life. Congratulations! (Does this mean I have to buy a housey stamp so I can make you a card - lol)
