I’ve been MIA but that good news is – I GOT A NEW JOB! Starting on Tuesday, my commute is dropping from 55 minutes to 15ish ya’ll!!!!!! So, it had been crazy busy and awkward and stressful at work trying to get things in order. But they told me to go home on Wednesday (not letting me work out my notice) which was actually kind of awesome because it means I FINISHED MY COFFEE MUG HOLDER, so that will be posted veryyyy soon.
And the kitchen is in the middle of being repainted (done by our Independence day partayyyyy YES!). Like, I’m literally typing this with dried primer all over me. When the walls are done drying,I can start putting up the new color! Went with Olympic’s Gravel – so hoping that it pulls the beige out of the countertop but lets the cabinets pop at the same time. It used to be yellow and the yellow just kinda went HEY LOOK AT ME – instead of staying in the background and showcasing the beautiful cabinetry in the kitchen. So. Fingers crossed. I’ll post more pics later 🙂
Soooo the not working thing – kinda working out for us here at our little house. haha.
So back to the true topic of this post:
Joined up with the lovely Beth and Angie at Chaotic Goddess Swaps for their “Local Flavor Swap”!!
The swap objective: “Get to know your partner and send them a fantastic package of goodies that are local to your city/state/region. This can include things your area is known for, goods from local artists/authors/makers/musicians, etc.”
How awesome does that sound?! I love my little area of the states. I could totally stick to just West Virginia. Or I could grab some local things from VA, where my new job will be (15ish minutes away), or I can shoot up to Maryland (20 minutes north) and get stuff from my ‘home land’. Pretttyyyy excited.
Take care ya’ll and be on the look out for my next few posts! Cant wait to share my coffee mug holder!!!!
