Baby steps...

What a busy week! I signed, kissed and packed up all the books for shipping (thank you pre-order peeps). I hope you enjoy my DNA and the extra SSOV treats I stuck in there.
I've also been painting up a storm! Our new counters are going on Sept 11th so I've been hustling to paint the walls and get things ship-shape for when the counter dudes arrive. I busted my butt (or should I say thighs) stripping the rest of the wallpaper, sanding the drywall (thank you Gerry for your magnificent work) and painting, painting, painting.

Then I got a call from the counter place that it's not going in until Oct 3rd. Ugh. Oh well... at least it looks pretty... Maybe we can do the floors before the counters go in. (*hint hint* Gerry)
This is the sample of the counter top... it's gonna look so nice once it's installed. :)Now we need to do the floors and fix the ceiling. Baby steps people. Baby steps. We're getting there. :)

Remember what it used to look like?

i actually feel really grateful to have seen the amazing renovations you've done. i think i am more able to look at less-appealing places in a different light now.

so thanks!

Holy fabulous batgirl!

That is awesome..not that I am surprised, I know the value of a can or two of paint.

But the colour is awesome, trez vintage chic and moderne all at the same time.
Nice....

Yes, the floors.....ummm Gerry?

YAAAAAYYYYY!!!! Got my book today! With the way-groovy pen! Thanks for getting it out so quickly, Sarah: I'm amazed that it's arrived already.

It made my day as we've had Yet Another Day of Cold and Rain in our "summer" that really has been anything but this year. (I wish I could remember why I decided to move to Wales from Barcelona.)

But just looking at the cover makes me feel happier! It's definitely coming with me when I go to visit my family this Xmas.

Hey Sarah! Taylor from Houston, TX here. I wanted to let you know I received my VAGG book and pen in the mail last week. Okay, so all I can say is OMG! I LOVE it - you so ROCK! And thank you - thank you for quoting me in the book. I have told all my friends that they must run out and buy a copy ASAP. :-)

Oh, and I totally agree with Krista's husband, your lips do look very kissable...I'm just saying.

XOXO
