This is probably the only clean spot in our whole house. We are still in the mist of a very do-it-yourself kitchen renovation. It has taken us a bit longer than we expected but we aren’t over budget and will have a dream kitchen (including gorgeous cork floors from Portugal!!) for just over 2000 dollars. This is all because of my carpenter-turned-teacher husband and the internet. I really can’t complain– even though I do– using the bathroom sink because you don’t have a kitchen sink for three weeks isn’t all that fun. In hindsight, I probably should have been more organized and boxed up the kitchen in a way that I could access my tools, but I really don’t think you can make a kitchen renovation project–especially one that is on an extreme budget– fun or painless.
I can’t wait to share the design with you! It is going to be gorgeous!
Come spring, I hope to be focusing on recipe development–which has been a challenge with all the moving and renovating we have been doing the last few years. I am in the process of putting together a recipe collection of sorts for our buying club that I hope to turn into a cookbook. It will probably be a pamphlet to begin with, but I am looking forward to organizing all my recipes this spring and testing and shooting photos with the hope that it will become a book proposal.
I am also going to be working on a lot of stories and columns for Upstate Life Magazine too.
It is going to be nice to get back to writing and creating.
Do you have anything creative planned for spring?
