This Old House July 2011 Issue

A couple months back I received an email from This Old House. Keep in mind people, that I get excited about almost any company contacting me, seriously, all they had to do was say ‘HI’ to make me smile. Instead, they asked if J and I were willing to let them feature our Card Catalog transformation. Ummm…of course!! This is the first time we have ever been in print, as in something not read off of a computer screen, as in can physically hold in your hands!! EEKK!

I didn’t want to say anything to you guys about it because we honestly had no idea how big or small the feature would be, so I didn’t want to hype it up! We received three copies of the July issue in the mail yesterday, courtesy of TOH {thank you!!} and I think I teared up a bit when seeing it for the first time. Now I know to some this little feature is no big deal, and it really isn’t…but to us, to us its amazing, and undeserved, and empowering, and humbling, and just incredible. To us, it is huge {yet, still such a small feature;) } Without further ado, here it is:

You know that I am going to be the biggest dork and document every single second of this right?!:

And here is me just being a giddy two year old about this:

As you can see, we are pretty excited! Maybe a little too excited, but hey- it’s the little things in life, right? The only bummer about it was that they couldn’t mention Dream Book Design at all, but oh well. Hope you guys are excited for us, and if not- we have enough excitement over here for 1,000,000 people! Happy weekend loves!!!

    How exciting for you! And well deserved. I think most DIY people over the last forty years wanted a card catalog. The photo of you holding the magazine is perfect. Nice hair, great dress. Frame it. If you can photo shop your husband into it, that’s your Christmas card. Ann
