Our Farmhouse Live on YouTube + An IPPY

Check out the video that is now live on Houzz.com's YouTube Channel. You can watch it here below or via this link




If you know anyone who might enjoy seeing our colorful home and critters, PLEASE share it with them. It will be fun to watch the numbers go up as time goes by.

Thanks everyone for helping me spread the colorful word around the world. 

I just found out that my newest book Crafting a Colorful Home has won a Gold Medal from the Independent Publishers Association in the Home and Garden Category! It is called an IPPY. Wow. Thank you Roost Books, my publisher, for entering the book and believing in my work.

I just viewed your You Tube video a second time and will probably view it again and again. I see something new and beautiful each time. What an inspiration you are! I've followed your blog for a few years and don't often comment, but just wanted to let you know you do things "right" and "beautiful".

*HAPPY YIPPIE* on the IPPY!! [woohoo!]
:-D

You know, having "IPPY Award WINNER" on the Cover of the NEXT Printing should really help with "sales"! - And, hopefully, FUTURE Royalty percentages..?

Anyhoo, *GOOD* STUFF, GIRLFRIEND!!
*HUGS*!!

Congratulations on the award! I loved your house when I came for a workshop years ago...although my house is not colorful like that (we live in an apartment)..my clothing is colorful....yesterday I had a fuschia colored shirt and a lime jacket.....

I love your home and all the color and everything in it and even the chippy parts. It is definitely the way I love to decorate which freaks people out since I live in a dusty desert country where it's very hard to keep things clean. I've embraced the dust bunnies. :) Best wishes, Tammy

It's been so lovely to see all over your home and hear you speak - like putting a face to your name. Lovely to hear from The Farmer and Julia too - you have an amazing home and wonderful family. Love from me, the collies and Flora the duck in Winchester, UK Ax
