Kind of random Monday

Two weeks ago, my friend Sam came over and we put together this linen covered corkboard for her room, inspired by the one I have in my office. It took all of 20 minutes (and that includes waiting for the iron to heat up). Isn't that a gorgeous color?

In blog news, I've decided to suspend the monthly email newsletter. Frankly, I'm just not excited to write it each month, and I don't want a business full of stuff that I feel like I "should" do but don't want to (Michelle is going to be so excited to hear that!). But if you're on the email list you'll still get updates from me, notice of special sales (in my shop and for my decorating services) before it's posted on the blog - or it may be the only place that gets a special coupon code. If you'll all "geez, Maggie, I was really hoping for the exact format of newsletter you promised" then I won't be offended if you unsubscribe the next time I send something out. But I hope that you are interested in hearing big announcements before everyone else!

In other news, I've been working all weekend on a new product that I'll post about later this week - an ebook that I think many of you will be very excited to see. So I'm behind on emails and haven't updated facebook but it's almost done! Can't wait to share the results of all this work with you!

And lastly, I'm in the brainstorming phase of some sort of Seattle area meet-up. If you're local and would like to go, please leave suggestions or ideas in the comments! Can't let the East Coast have all the fun, right?
