    I’m Back! And Free What? {Also, Take Two.}

    {This is my second time posting this blog because the first post no one received an email. Ack.

    Free Decorating Book Giveaway—A Fun Christmas Gift for the Girl in Your Life!

    From time to time, I review books when something piques my interest.

It’s a discover-your-design-style and makeover-your-heart-and-room-devotional all wrapped into one. Each chapter starts with a relatable story of a girl sharing a challenge she’s facing both in her personal life and with a design dilemma. The first…
