Domino back issues

Holy crap! Domino back issues are $9 each! Still cheaper than what some of them go for on ebay though. And fyi- their customer service is not outsourced, so it's easier to get through.
(877) 356-9904

Blueprint is incredibly cheap compared to this...I hope I'm actually getting what I think I'm getting from them...I was a bit suspicious too, because it seemed too cheap. Guess I'll know by next Saturday or so.
I just ordered all 8 issues of Blueprint magazine for $20, including shipping. Click here
to do the same. It was a bit confusing. Customer service is obviously being outsourced so the first lady I talked to didn't really know what I was talking about. She transferred me to a creepy sounding guy, that I imagined had a unibrow and doesn't button the top four buttons of his shirt in order to show off his sweet gold chain necklaces. Anyways, he said single issues were I think, 2.50 or 3.50 and cost $2 to ship...or the package deal for all 8 was $20. So of course I went with that, even though I have all but one issue. I'll ebay the rest or trade out my not so pristine issues for these new ones.

Hmm...maybe I should look into Domino back issues now? I missed probably 8-10 of those.

Lakeside cottages

I am in love with this place.
I am also obsessed with the idea of owning a lakeside cottage of my own. I looked at them online for a while last night. Not that I have any money to spend on one. Although I did find a pretty cute one in Iowa for $16,000. That's less than my car. But it's still like 7 hours from here.

Then I settled on a backyard retreat, which is accomplishable at about $5000-6000.
It's actually a garden shed but could make a really cool studio. But maybe I should just turn my current garage into a studio. It already has two windows and I don't even park my car in it because I don't trust the garage door. It's an outbuilding too.

Kitchen renovations on hold

We've (I've) had some setbacks here, so all renovations costing more than $50 are currently on hold. I hope to have some good news soon so that I can update the blog and get back to work on the house.

In the meantime, shoot me a message if you need copy writing, editing, resume writing, article writing, web design, logo design or photography! Hah!
