HGTV's Rate My Space

I love Rate My Space on HGTV. It is a show that takes someones not so great space in their house and transforms it. You can upload pictures of different spaces in your own house and get feedback of different things you could do. I uploaded this post today of my kitchen. I must warn you though that it is addicting!!!

A Pack of Surprises

What a great idea if you love collecting original art like I do!! In 1997, Clark Whittington transformed a out-of-work cigarette machine into a vending station for his photographs. A decade later, the savy result is the Art-o-mat. Over 400 artists contribute original work that is packaged and vended for $5-$7 each at more than 80 machines located throughout the country. There is even one located here in Austin at the Mercury Design Studio. If you can't find a machine near you, order a collection of 10 packs of art in an Art-o-carton ($100) online at

A Bit Dramatic?

Today when Ty was doing his homework he said, "I am going to faint and fall over because this is killing me." He then proceeded to fall out of the chair screaming. HA! I totally started laughing! He is the sweetest boy but can be so CRAZY at times!!! I wonder who he gets that from?
