Magazine Photo Shoot

I have been so excited to tell you my news!



I was contacted last fall about being featured in a magazine for fall decorating and crafts. I cannot disclose the name of the magazine or exactly what will be featured due to policy. Also, the feature will not come out until fall of 2012 so things could change. I can say that a wonderful crew flew in on Monday and was here all day Tuesday! It was a fun and exciting day!! I have been anticipating their arrival for a long time. Now you know why I have been so busy lately. I have been decorating and cleaning for several weeks! There is alot to do when important people are coming to your house! I have been very excited about this opportunity and can't wait until next year when the magazine comes out. It will be a long wait! Sorry I can't give out anymore details...I hope you will hang with me through this adventure!


Have a great weekend!!
