A month or so ago, I saw that KariAnne was looking for a few people to be a part of her new books launch team.  I knew that I probably wouldn’t be chosen, but went ahead and applied anyway.

Then I forgot all about it.

Until I received a package in the mail a few weeks later.

I was puzzled, I couldn’t remember ordering any thing.  When I opening the package, out fell one of the prettiest books ever, a sweet note from KariAnne and a tape measure.

Excited was an understatement.

Perfect for keeping notes, paint chips etc.

This book truly had me at the table of contents. So. Stinking. Cute! I love the illustrations and the color.

I love that there are graph papers for you to lay out each room in your home.

And if you think that the illustrations are beautiful, you should see the photos of decorated rooms.  Swoon worthy for sure!


As a special gift to her readers, KariAnne has a few gifts at the end of the book. Perforated pages of artwork and craft patterns.

I’ve been playing with the new book and am happy to say that it works!

Not only have I learned a lot, but I’ve also solved a decorating dilemma  that has been bugging me for months.

I can’t wait to share the easy fix for that problem with you soon.

Thank You KariAnne!

Whether you are new to decorating or an old hand like me, you will definitely fall in love with this book.

Until Next time…..
