Magazine feature is out
How was your Halloween everyone? I loved the fact that it was on a weekend and we were able to have a neighborhood fire pit until late at night and the parents ended up having just as much fun as the kiddos.
I don’t even know how to start this post. Well I had been waiting for the magazine feature to come out for a year and knew it was coming around the beginning of November. Do you remember when I wrote about it last year HERE? My house has changed so much since then and I have toned down the colors quite a bit since then.
I was grocery shopping last Thursday and noticed that the new Do It Yourself Magazine was on the shelfs. I hadn’t even received my own copy yet. I can’t deny a certain excitement when you pick up a magazine at a place I shop at every week and see yourself in it. It’s definitely something I can scratch off of my bucket list. My catio was featured in a magazine this year too but I wasn’t in it. My kids were super thrilled to see themselves in it too. Especially my daughter was so happy to have her artwork in print.
You can’t read my scans below, but I just thought I’d show it for those of you who live in a different country and can’t get the magazine.
And on Friday I was visited by our local style magazine – Lehigh Valley Style, and they took some photos of my house for their March issue.
It was a fun morning of hanging out and I also got to watch Colin of Colin Coleman Photography do his work.
And I got to splurge on some fresh flowers 😉
Before my son was born I actually used to work for this publication when they were still at their beginning stages. So this will be a special treat for me to not be working on one of the issues but to be in it instead.
One more thing for today, the Blogger Stylin’ Thanksgiving Table Scapes are starting on Lindsay’s blog (The White Buffalo Styling Company) today (click HERE) and you should see what everyone came up with this year around. My post will be on Wednesday and it is the first time I’m participating for Thanksgiving. So see you on Wednesday.
