A little news to share

I wanted to remind you to get prepared to watch an all new season of Canada's Handyman Challenge. 
Tune in January 21st at 10 pm on HGTV  Canada for the season premier. 
I was invited to visit the set this past fall. It was so nice to get a behind the scenes look. A few other bloggers and I were able to sit down with the judges and the host and chat about DIY projects and blogging, it was a lot of fun they were all so nice and charming of course. Sadly my computer crashed recently and I lost all but this photo. 
I was thoroughly impressed with the final challenge, it would have crippled me.  It is amazing what some people are able to accomplish in such a pressure cooker, I don't know how they did it.
You will have to tune in to watch their journey and to see who walks away with the grand prize. 


I wanted to share with you a NEW BLOG you must check out. My dear friend's sister Jenna has just jumped into the blogging world. I think it's a great idea, she is very talented and lucky us she is wanting to share her talents with the world. She transformed her previous home which was lovely but decided to make the move to a new home, which is stunning. Jenna recently purchased an "80's vintage" cottage and she is transforming it room by room, in a very tight timeline they have already made remarkable changes that you have to see, it sure makes me long for a cottage to DIY makeover myself. 
You can see her makeovers of her previous home her current home and her cottage continue to tune in while she shares the journey of transforming both her home and cottage. 


Here are some pics of her work for you to drool over
Enjoy! and then head on over to OAK POINT COTTAGE and see what Jenna has been up to, make sure to say hi and tell her I sent you. 
 It's so gorgeous right?



Honestly I could switch houses in a heart beat....
Check out Jenna's new blog OAK POINT COTTAGE I just love that name also it's perfect.

For a minute, I thought you were competing in the show! Now, that would be super cool! Lucky you, to get to visit the set though! And to sit beside Bryan, ;)

I love these photos, and I'm off to what will probably be a new blog love affair. Thanks!
