What I learned today...

So do you ever ask your child when they get home from school, "What did you learn today?" Or if you are like me and you don't have children... Did your mom ask you that same question when you got home from school? Well I want to share with you all what I learned today!

I learned.......

That Chris Durnan can't keep a secret!!!! Yep, don't be trusting her with too much information - cause she will spill the beans!!!! She outed one of my announcements on her blog before I even had a chance to tell anyone myself! Shesshhhh!!!!

Thus - if you didn't already know - Chris and I will be having a one day sale at Paperthreads on Monday, Sept 3rd!!!!! For one day and one day only both her files and mine will be on sale for 30% off!!!

What a better way to celebrate the Labor day holiday than with a sale!!! I don't think I have actually had a sale since July - so if there are a few files you have been wanting - Monday is the day to pick them up!!!

So make sure you head on over to Paperthreads on Monday and pick up any or all of my files and Chris's files for 30% off!!!

Now for today's show and tell - In an effort to redo my living room, I purchased some slipcovers for my furniture. With the green accent wall, my blue and mauve sofa and chairs just didn't cut it anymore.

I looked for new furniture and just didn't find anything I liked that didn't cost an arm and a leg. And even the stuff that was really expensive isn't made as well as the furniture I already have.... so I figured I would give the slipcovers a try (oh and I had a 25% off coupon!!!).

So here was my furniture before:



And here it is after:


I have to say the green wall has grown on me and I actually like having a little color in my life!!!

Hope you all have a great holiday weekend! I shall be here slaving away to get caught up on all the stuff I DIDN'T get done last week!

Until next time!

PS - for the record Chris and I have been very good friends for like.... wow it seems like forever - but it was actually a few months before I became a designer for Paperthreads!! As a matter of fact - if she and Shirley (another designer at Paperthreads) had not been sooo adamant I would have never tried out to be a designer!!! So please don't send me any ugly emails asking my why I am dissing Chris.... because if you do.... I will just have to reply "Cause she deserves it!!!" Bahahahahahahahahahaha!!!

I really like your green accent wall! Why is picking colors for wall paint so difficult? It looks like your house is like mine and a lot of the rooms are open to each other..which to me means basically that I have to select ALL the colors for the whole shebang at once.. then there is the problem of where one color should start and where the next should go. It's downright traumatic!
