Four Doses of Exciting News!

First and foremost: Barbara, from the fabulous hodge:podge, interviewed me for her So Canadian Eh? series!!  Re-reading my responses, I sound like such a nerd but I want you to check it out anyway.  I am so flattered by the kind things Barbara said about me.  Thanks for having me on your blog, Barbara!

Second bit of juicy news: my Artful Ikea Expedit Hack (with my DIY'd paintings) was featured on Ikea Hackers!  I'm so excited to see what Ikea Hacker readers have to say.

Next tidbit: thanks to an invite from Beatrice, of The Crafty Bee, I'm now on Pinterest (click on the Pinterest logo to the right).  I got an email reply telling me I am officially the last person in the world.  I'm slowly starting to follow my favorite bloggers, but speed up the process for me: are you on Pinterest?  Will someone please follow me - I look like such a sad sack with 0 followers - it's the early days of blogging all over again!!

I hope this isn't true:


Hmmm, I'm new at this but I know this one's pretty spot-on:


I even created a Twitter account, just to be on Pinterest!  I don't know if I'll really get into Twitter (I don't get it) but I have an account now - I'm townhouse_tanya (and, like Pinterest, zip friends!)

That's my news!  How was your weekend?
