Say What?!

Some pretty cool stuff happened while I was at home challenging the lycra on my yoga pants. First up, the super cool and talented Jamie Knodel, reporter extraordinaire for the Dallas Morning News, wrote a little story about holiday blog parties….which featured several of my Christmas projects! The story appeared in the Christmas Eve edition of the Dallas Morning News, and was a great gift to wake up to! Thanks so much, Jamie, it was a thrill to be included with those big-dog blogs (with my friend Shelli at A La Mode!)

Peek at Blogger’s Christmas Style

I was still riding that high (or it could have been my excessive sugar intake), when my pal Courtney alerted me to CasaSugar’s Best DIY Projects of 2011 post.

As if it wasn’t cool enough to recognize my Starburst Mirror in their Top 7 Projects, but they also included my Chevron Glasses and Window Pelmet! A huge thank you to the editors of CasaSugar for selecting my projects and continued support!

I loved every second of my self-imposed break from all things productive the past two weeks, but the kids returned to school today, and I’m itching to paint or glue something!! We’ll crank back up some projects soon…after all, I have to shoot for the 2012 List!

  20. Ok so if you are in the Dallas area then I think we need to have a little blog get together because I know that there are a couple others that live in this area as well – it would be so much fun! Or at least do a day of thrifting together =)
