news-gazette feature

as i mentioned earlier this month, our home was featured in the local newspaper.  news-gazette reporter meg thilmony sweetly asked me if i would be interested in an article about our home, since it was "gorgeous and kid-friendly at the same time."  (i told you she was sweet.)

featured in our local paper

i love that you can see where our cat flaco gnaws on the back of the chairs.  yes, our cat gnaws.  he draps his body over the top of the chair and gnaws.  this is real life people.

meg and i "met" through twitter.  i was familiar with her writing through the paper and she recently began reading this blog.  i might be a stay-at-home homeschoolin' mama with a teeny tiny etsy shoppe, but it sure is neat how social media can connect me to all sorts of cool people.

and here is where i cue the newsies lyrics. . .

this was such a fun experience.  totally unexpected and fun.  thanks meg for the ask.  i promise to invite you to my next craft night.

oh and a quick and last reminder:
the first round of voting for apartment therapy's room for color contest ends today (noon pst).  we are holding steady in first place for the northern division, but if you haven't yet, feel free to favorite our room to help us secure a spot in the finals.  so exciting. . .

Looks great! Also, love the Newsies reference. My sisters and I fought over that soundtrack and we all still randomly burst into song.
