Just popping in quick today to share some fun news! Better Homes and Gardens featured my Valentines mantel on their website! So exciting! When I got the e-mail a few months ago asking if they could feature my mantel I think my jaw hit the table. I clicked the Better Homes and Gardens link about five times to make sure it was really them! (Move over Martha!)
I’ve also been noticing a lot of traffic coming to my little blog from Pinterest. Yes. Pinterest. That beloved site that has changed all of our lives. Mostly by zapping away all of our time. ;) Yesterday I landed on the link to all of the pictures people have recently pinned from my site. Now THAT was fun. I’m thrilled and flattered that so many of you are pinning my ideas. It truly makes me so happy! In fact I was so excited about it that last night I did a little celebration dance in the living room. (I know – you’re all so sad you missed that one.) I said to Kenny “I’m getting pinned!!” He gave me that look. The one I so often get that says I have no idea what you’re talking about but I’m not about to ask because I don’t think I really want to know. I know his looks well.

How cool! I am not on Pinterest…a little afraid that my children will starve to death if I begin. But, I have sent people over to your site to check out ideas! I totally used your Valentine’s idea for our mantel last year…not as neat and pretty….but it was wonderful! Congratulations!

You deserve the attention Erin in BHG. Way to go right to the top of the decorating world! I love your blog (and pin boards). It’s nice to see your very “real” ideas, especially since our minds seem to work in a very similar way.

I think your blog is great and inspiring! I love following you; congrats on the new publicity, you deserve it!
Ps. You have re-inspired me to finish all of my organization projects that were half done.

LOL!! My claim to fame…knowing you! Love ya Erin!
Congrats Erin! You are a designer and your obviously passionate about it and it shows! Someday I really see you with your own little show about organizing and decorating. Your sparkling personality makes you the perfect host :)
I just discovered pinterest and I am loving it as well. It’s still confusing to me but I figure over time I will learn how to maneuver the site!
Love it! So fun and such fun.
Congrats Erin! So many pins and well, Better Homes and Gardens is practically the Holy grail of the decorating world! You deserve it. I stop by for a pick me up everyday, thank you. Even the hair tutorial is on pinterest! :). Hugs from Wendy in Vancouver.
Thanks so much everyone! I really appreciate your support! You are all so kind to take a minute out of your day to comment. Love my readers!! :)

My friend, Char, also has a valentine mantle on bhg (right after yours). When I saw your mantle on bhg.com I clicked over to see your blog. I’m hooked! I love all of your organizing ideas, and fun fashion posts too. And of course funny kid stories.
My little guy was born only a few days after yours and it’s fun hearing what other little guys his age are up to.
And you look so familiar, you weren’t at the St George outlets the Saturday after Thanksgiving were you? :)
Congratulations! I recently started following your blog and really enjoy reading your posts. You have passed along great tips! We now have DEAR time and my six year old loves it. The 2 year old, not so much, but he doesn’t like authority and schedules anyway.
Congrats! I am so excited for you.
Better Homes and Gardens seems like a perfect fit for your style-congrats!
I saw this on BH & G! Congrats to you. I just recently found your blog and can I say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it!!! You inspire me so much. So many great ideas. :)
Congratulations Erin! You are very talented and it is no surprise to me that Better Homes would feature your picture :) Well done, and thank you for your inspiration! xx
Wow, congratulations!! :)
And I see a lot of people have pinned your pantry makeover…it inspired me as well! I’ve ordered containers and as soon as they arrive…look out pantry!
Congrats Erin! You deserve it all! I love reading your blog. It is so sweet and generous in nature, I really admire your organisational skills and your wonderful sense of humour! I like how you keep it ‘real’.
Its always a pleasure to read about you and your beautiful family xx
So cool, Erin! Couldn’t happen to a nicer girl. :)
ERIN!!! Oh my gosh, it’s really official now, you ARE famous! That is so cool! Really, really exciting! It still just makes me laugh to think about what your blog has turned into with out you even trying. You just have oodles of talents to share and even strangers can’t help but adore you! You really should be rolling in some serious dough for all you put into it. (Then you could easily support all the habits you blog about.) And I haven’t gotten on pinterest yet. I know EVERYONE talks about it, but I know I’d be hooked and more time on the computer is the last thing I need right now, I can’t even get the essentials done! Some day I’ll check it out, but I do have to say I think it is SO funny that your hair post is getting pinned!
Anyway, yay for you! Just remember the little people who have been reading your blog from post #1! :)
That is sweet! I totally noticed a pin of yours the other day! Your the bomb.com!!!!! Congrats!
Yay!! So exciting!
Wow, I missed this post. So awesome! Congratulations on much deserved recognition. You inspire and bring laughter to my days.
Congrats Erin! I actually pinned your snowman cookie picture and I was shocked when it was repinned 95 times! You are so inspiring to a lot of us all over!
How cool is that? What fun!
Congrats to you Erin! You deserve to do a happy dance. Keep trucking.
You deserve all the attention, your blog is great and you have so much helpful info. Plus you remind us moms that it’s important to brush our hair and teeth too…haha… :)
