Busy week: Blog updates

I haven’t posted much this week. I was doing so well with my 4 posts a week schedule! Life gets in the way sometimes.

Just because I haven’t posted doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about y’all! I’ve actually done a little clean-up here on the ol blog.

Most recently, I changed the drop down menus:

Now you can sort by room for projects whenever the mood strikes you and without an annoyingly long drop down menu. Whoo. I haven’t quite made it through all of my old posts categorizing them properly but I’m making progress!

Also take a look at my first sponsor: RocksBox.  If you’ve never heard of Rocks Box, you should check it out.  It’s basically a Netflix for jewelry. For as little as $15 a month, you can rent designer jewelry by mail.  To get started you can take a style quiz and they chose the perfect pieces just for you each month.  Pretty cool.

I also cleaned up some comment bugs that have been on my list FOREVER! My BBF (best blog friend..) Victoria E. Barnes pointed out this obnoxious “WordPress Hashcash” thing that was printing in all the comments. Thanks so much for pointing it out!  Fixed that. I also got the comment box to display on the main page instead of forcing you to the individual post page. It hasn’t increased the comment usage too much but I’m hoping if I keep nagging you it will help.

We have some more features coming up in the next few weeks. One tool-tastic new series from my fantastic husband, Stefan (and his sidekick Vector), should be starting soon!


This weekend we are taking a little vacation to Stefan’s hometown to visit with the family. It’s been far too long since we’ve been for a visit. Since we won’t have a chance to work on the house this weekend, next week is going to be a little light on the blog posts but I’m planning on a busy and productive July. Operation Get-this-house-livable is underway!

Happy Father’s Day to all you fathers and a special shout-out to my own awesome Daddy.  I love you!
