Hope this edition of THE SCOOP finds everyone fine and basking in the glow of a great July 4th long weekend! Here at StoneGable our holiday was quiet and fun! Bobby finished the paver paths in the garden and my sister Lisa came up to celebrate my Mom’s birthday with us! We had a cook-out and did lots of looking and shopping in local downtown Lancaster. There are so many cool shops here! I’ve been the diy queen lately… doing lots of fun home projects! 

Did you all see my post this week 6 MUST HAVES THINGS TO PAINT A ROOM LIKE A PRO? I hope you did! I shared a few important things you need to have on hand when painting that will make your next big painting job easier! And I shared a great new product to help you keep your paint looking fresh all the time! It’s called THE PAINT SAINT.  I love love love it. It’s little, genius canister that hold paint and a brush and more to use when you need to touch up your walls and baseboards without any mess… You have to check it out!  Click HERE to see more about MY PAINT SAINT!

I’m so happy you are here with us!
What’s going here is a little bit of everything. Firstly, my book is coming out in hardback September 8th! Pre-orders of signed copies are already available!
And my new online shop is now open! For every item sold, I’m donating $1 to Summer House a place for adults with developmental disabilities to feel welcome, hang out and work. I’m also working on some products to be made at Summer House. My daughter with Down Syndrome will be there in the fall. This is something I am very excited about!!!
