I was pretty stumped by this weeks IF theme help. I started thinking about what will be going on in our home in the coming months and in February we will be starting to rip down walls and redesigning our kitchen. In my head I am sure I will be screaming HEEEEELLPPPP!!!!! While I know my husband and brother-in-law are very proficient in demolition (Heck, I can rip down a wall!) and in framing, etc, I do worry about the electrical and plumbing work! I am of the opinion that if the result of not knowing what you are doing can either burn down or flood the house, hire a professional!
So there you go! This is John2. He is an proficient in the electrical arts . . . and kind of hunky too! I wouldn't mind having him over to rewire some outlets! Ha!
Have a happy weekend!!

I have worked closely with a couple of my closest blogging buddies to offer a discount code opportunity on all items in my Etsy shop for their readers! I think it is only right to extend these wonderful savings onto all of my loyal readers!! This is a great opportunity to snag some cool original art for yourself, or to give as a gift to your best bud!
All you have to do is to enter the code MCAP in the "message to seller" box when you make your purchase on Etsy. Then wait for me to send you a revised invoice! This offer is good through December 20th, so don't just sit there! Get shopping!!! There are only a few holiday shopping days left!
(**Please note that this discount code only applies to my Etsy shop, and not to the Holiday Shop**)
(Special thanks to Holly of decor8 and Jessica of Funky Finds for posting the holiday specials!)

Oh my crafty goodness! What a crazy weekend! The XL Holiday Felt Club was a smashing success! There was a line arond the corner and up the street when doors opened at noon! The 250 swag bags were gone in 7 minutes! That has got to be some kind of record! Thousands came through the door and shopped like crazy! I have never seen anything like that!
It is worth mentioning the Felt Club is organized by Jenny of Sew Darn Cute fame. She is a wonderful lady and really works hard to make sure these events are a hit! At 11am the table rental that was supposed to have been there at 9am, still had not arrived! Jenny managed to pull a craftyass miracle and find a rental company around the corner from the event location saving the day! She was cool as a cucumber till the end! Thank you Jenny for all that you put into the show! I think all who were there would agree that it was a tremendous success!
All but a few of my photos were way too dark to even make out. I had very little time to roam around and take pics, but if you would like to check out other peoples photos of the event, you can click here. Also, check out Caroline Donahues blog Remabulous for a very cool account of her experience at the show!
So now I cant wait until this Saturday to check out Bazaar Bizarre as a shopper! It is fun to do these shows, but you cant really enjoy the shopping while you are working!
