Halloween Projects with Better Homes & Gardens

Yesterday’s news can’t really be topped, but I do have another exciting project in the works. And no, we’re not having twins…

Halloween Project for BHG
(Above is a little sneak peek.)

I’ll be creating four Halloween projects for Better Homes & Gardens, along with three other amazing bloggers: Kathleen of Twig & Thistle, Liz of Mabel’s House (who also announced her pregnancy yesterday!), and Suzonne of Urban comfort. Our first project will appear in the October issue of Better Homes & Gardens, and the subsequent three will be online at I’ll share the first project with you in early September when the issue hits newsstands.

    Congratulations–I’ll be looking forward to that one in my mailbox! I have been following your blog for a few months and really appreciate your style. I especially love your “James and Eugenia” series. . . so clever. As a former Oak Parker I feel a connection and enjoy seeing the transformation of your bungalow. (I miss mine!)
