One year ago this month, Better Homes & Gardens Do It Yourself Magazine came to my house to photograph it!  I've been waiting impatiently excitedly ever since for the feature to come out.  And it is finally here!



When my copy arrived in the mail yesterday, I literally squealed with excitement...and my oldest laughed at me saying I sounded just as excited as I was when I first saw my book in a hard copy!

I had such a great time meeting some of my readers and signing copies of my book for them!  (It was a bit surreal, actually).
