Coming Out of Hibernation

I don’t know about you, but I feel like I’ve just emerged from a 16-month hibernation.

Commanding The Bathroom

I will never get tired of Command™ products, the line of hooks, strips, and other items that can be adhered to a wall or other smooth surface without damaging it. I’ve used them all over my home, as you can read about in many of my previous posts, including My Love Affair with Command™ Hooks and Hang Your Necklaces. But it’s even more fun when I get to try out products at a client’s home! A long-term client recently moved to a new…
