Posts from a homeowner.

Welcome Cjane Readers! If you are new here, take a seat and stay a while. There is lots going on here...and it's great to meet ya!

We are all moved into the house, and though I am still digging through boxes to find socks, we are feeling so at home. We have entered the ranks of homeowners, and I love this title. There is a lot to do still to the house (did I mention we still need to install a couple toilets?) but those are just details. The wonderful part is that we have an address and a neighborhood and feel such a part of this wonderful community up on the mountainside. Our breakfast table overlooks the city below and there was a beautiful red-breasted robin singing to us from his tree this morning with branches that look out over the valley. This house is an artists paradise. I can't wait to show pictures!

And believe it or not, I have been still able to chisel away at the Christmas Book I'm working on with Katherine Tegan books at Harper Collins. I have a deadline to finish completely in just over a month, and I couldn't think of a better place to finish it up than at the new house. The art studio is proving to be a great place to work. I'll get some boxes out of the way and shoot some pictures soon!

But to start off the week, there are some great giveaways over at CJANE celebrating the birth of her upcoming baby. I designed the invite (Can you tell I am into this retro feel?) and it should be a lot of fun!

I am giving away a $50 gift card to my shop here and you can visit more giveaways here. Come on over and dig in! And all orders with the mention of CJANE get a free card of choice in their orders this week!

Have a good one!
