Wow you guys.
Thanks so much for the sweet comments and facebook and pinterest love!
As promised, I’m back today with the details.
I’ll try my best to remember everything but if I leave something out, just ask in the comments.
You know the expression, “The devil is in the details” meaning the details are the hard part?
The details are my favorite part of any project.
They are what take something from ordinary to extra-ordinary.
