Feeling a little unsettled, but very excited …
the dining room.
the music/memory room
where all the stuff in the dining room and music/memory room should go.
YEAH. I'm getting new carpet.
Our mistake. We just didn't get the right color or style when we built our home. Since we have carpet connections (Paula's husband is vice president of sales at Shaw) we are very luckily replacing the original carpet in the living room, master bedroom and up the stairs!
This means that the "flow" at home is slight interrupted today, as one tries to squeeze by large pieces of furniture that are blocking all sorts of essentials like underwear and silverware.
Speaking of Paula … Paula has been purging and would really like to share! Visit her blog to make yourself eligible for several days of giveaways!
And, there's another giveaway too. This is one of the pages I made with my November Cocoa Daisy kit. If you haven't yet registered for my FREE Cocoa, Daisies and Stacy class at BPS, now is the time. Tricia at Cocoa Daisy has some additional product kits available. We are really excited to be teaming up with Tricia, as so many of our students have asked for kitted product. We (BPS) are exploring and testing the partnership and hoping to provide several ongoing project classes tied to product. So, GO … sign up for the FREE class and order a kit. Ali Edwards developed our first kit class and Kelli Crowe is working on one for March (yippy!) … we are anxious for you to create these projects and give us feedback on the whole process.
In other news, one of my favorite photographers, Brian Smith (who contracts for CKMedia in the photo studio) has received a wonderful honor from Getty Images. Brian shot my studio for Wendy's book a couple of years ago and I'm hoping to talk him into a few more things upcoming! In anycase, follow this link to enjoy some of his amazing still life photos. He makes ordinary things like Q-tips and string absolutely beautiful. Go for some inspiration.
And finally … on the Library of Memories front. The information for registering as an alumni has NOT gone out yet. Don't worry — we are saving you ALL a spot. I am spending 30 minutes a day on my personal system. Yesterday, I came across this FUN photo …
I LOVE having printed pictures at my beck and call. This is my new favorite and every time I flip by it in my Fall 2008 storage binder, I have that magical feeling of anticipation. I can't wait to "see" what it becomes.
