Sorry for the quick post, MG has her first day of college tomorrow (I'll explain later)... but here's a little something for now...

I almost flipped when my little sister told me about Zubbles - the world's first colored bubbles. They took 10 years to develop and the result is vibrant, in-your-face fun colors, not wishy-washy weakness. And the best part is they don't stain fabric! Seriously, I know they're not going to solve the world's problems, but they will make it a little happier. I can't wait to try some out!

I'm Back...Finally!

Hello from Chattanooga, we made it!! Or should I say "Hey y'all"? It's been 2 weeks and I'm so happy to be back. I have a month's worth of blog posts written in my head, but guess they don't count if you can't actually read them, huh? Hmm, where to begin?

It was a mad rush to get the house on the market, but I'm really happy with the end result - see pics below. I'm totally in love with the master bedroom's vaulted ceiling and illuminated beams!

Anyway, we packed up the uhaul and, aside from a major scare when Tim thought he'd lost Lavender Kitty in Virginia (we won't talk about that or the panic attack it caused), we made it to Chattanooga in one piece. It's been a bit rough with missing everyone, but I have to say this is a pretty awesome place to live. Lots of artists, festivals, very outdoorsy and a great downtown. It's really inspiring! Now that the house is done I have tons of ideas lined up for new projects - sewing & knitting patterns, kid's crafts, design thoughts, etc. I can't wait to get creating!

PS - for those of you that may be wondering where all my usual crazy paint colors are, I refrained. It was a major lesson for me and I'm happy to say that I actually fully appreciate the "neutrals" that I chose in the end... though they would need a hot pink pillow or something if I was going to live with them for real ;-)

Oh Alice!

I'm feeling a bit like Alice in Wonderland these days. I've fallen down a hole, can't seem to get out and, instead of a crazy queen, there's paint cans and Sheetrock dust chasing me. Umm yeah, there's a definite lack of sleep happening! I'll be very happy once the uhaul is loaded and the house is listed. Stay tuned for plenty of pics... I can't wait to get back in blogging mode again. Until then, HAPPY day to you and I miss you all!!
