Well, I finally got around to getting my ceiling medallion installed. My installation assistant has been sick for the past 2 weeks and this was not a one-person job!

As a matter of fact, the job was much more painstakingly difficult than I had imagined. But really, that's always the case. I want things done, Zip Zip, at the snap of my finger. My plans are always GRANDE but the reality of it is, I usually run out of time and/or energy before I actually accomplish all that I want to. Working long hours at my job leaves me only Saturdays and Sundays to get to that "To Do" list.
At least I've been able to cross off another project as Done and I'm happy with how it turned out.

Now onto the GIVEAWAY part of this post.
Some of you may remember, at some point last year (don't quite recall at which point) I had my Blog overhauled! The look of it drastically changed (for the better) thanks to Professional Intervention in the form of Sharon from Plumrose Lane.
And now, I will share some of the love with one of my followers who will win
Custom Blog Theme Basic Package from Plumrose Lane.This package will include 1 Background
1 Banner
and a set of 6 Sidebar Buttons.

Sharon is a freelance graphic artist currently studying for her Bachelors of Fine Arts degree.
She is a generous Blogger who provides a bunch of tutorials & freebies on her blog so please go visit and have a poke around ... there is so much to see!
I thoroughly enjoyed the process of starting with a vision for my Blog and then having the expertise of Sharon to put it all together and make it come to life.
If you want to be entered in this Giveaway and you're a Follower, simply leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win. I'll select the winner on Valentine's Day - February 14th!
Good Luck!
