Oh my goodness we’re 20 days into the month! I can’t believe how January is flying by… and I’ve only posted twice. Maybe you’re thinking what is the girl up to, she’s fallen off the radar!
Not quite… but almost.
I’ve been working really hard on a few secret projects (then add school commitments and dieting on top of that) and the days just seem to be flying by.
I have a few exciting things going on that I just had to share, and one not so exciting bit of news, but I’ll start with the happy news…
My secret project- I’ve been working on is a little partnership with Hazel and Ruby. Since its secret (I had to sign a disclosure saying so) I can’t really tell you anything about it (sorry thats such a neener, neener, neener thing to say) but I did snap a photo of the process and I just had to tell you how crazy excited I am to let the cat out of the bag!
It doesn’t look like much, but when it all comes together it is going to be fantastic! I have two major pieces of the puzzle to put together by my Jan 30 deadline so forgive me if I’m not back to regular posting by then!
News #2– Starting right away I’ll be joining forces with Pittsburgh Paints Voice of Color team to bring you some great projects and room makeovers, color inspiration, and even some outings! I’m over the top to be behind this company. I’ve been using their paint for about 10 years, and even worked at the paint counter when I first got out of decorating school. I love these guys and can’t wait to bring you lots of news, photos, and tips, dripping in delicious color!
You can see some of the projects I’ve worked on with VOC in the past- Bathroom Makeover, and Modern Farmhouse Kitchen.
News #3- This year I am teaming up with Scrapbook and Cards Today as a regular contributor. I’ll have my own little show “Craft it Monday with Fynes Designs” you can catch my project there the last Monday of each month, starting next week!
And last but not least, my sad news... Since the New Year I decided its time that Fynes Designs needs to be a legit business, but the government man tells me that Fynes Designs isn’t a good name.
Apparently there is a Fine Design out there and we can’t have a similar name (tear, no seriously I actually cried) Now what am I to do, what do I call my business? I never thought in a million years it would be an issue, after all there are only a handful on Fynes around. I am stumped, and ideas?
So that is where I stand this month, not avoiding just crazy busy. I have a little office makeover in the works, all that fun is coming your way!
