Vacation-Mode and I'm Buying a Fence!

Bull Terrier Building a Fence
by Jay Schmetz

So, my shops are officially on Vacation-Mode... which is laughable, as I am far from on vacation, what with all the packing and moving. Oh man, I can't wait until the moving is over and we are settled into our fantastic new house!

Thank you so much for the awesome comments on my last post. We are so completely in love with our house! It's hard to get our tiny little apartment packed when we just want to go over to our new house and admire it all the time.

But packing we are, and soon my mom will be in town to help me start painting. I would have Will help me... but he is incompetent when it comes to painting - always forgetting to tarp off the floors, and never remembering to wipe up the drips. grrr...

Thank you so much for your support in my shop sale! I now have enough moolah sitting in my account to buy a decent bamboo fence to block the vicious dog who lives behind us (um, I didn't know there was a vicious dog until AFTER we got the new house keys).

There is only a measly open chain-link fence separating our yards at the moment. Every time we've been over there, the dog has growled and snapped at us... um, I have a 2 year old, who thinks that all snapping, snarling dogs are her BFF, and a malamute dog, who thinks that all snapping, snarling dogs are his BFF - I don't want any dog attacks, so the fence is going up!

So, yay. All of you Elegant Snobbery supporters are responsible for my kids not getting attacked by a (potentially killer) dog! Doesn't that make you feel fantastic?

I truly can not thank you enough!

regardless of supporting the breed or not it's better to be safe than sorry, Dogs just aren't predictable and little fingers and tiny fuzzy feet shouldn't have to learn that the hard way.

Happy Painting and fencing

Yeah, chain link has to go!!! Hope the move is relatively painless and that you all get settled in very very soon. After all, I need it all painted in pretty for when I come to visit :) Glad your mom is helping you paint!!!

Yeah for 1/2 off sales bringing in some dough! Boo for mean, barking dogs!

Good luck with the dog. Too bad we don't know these things when we move in! My neighbors dogs are far from vicious, but do yip yip yip any time I'm outside.

YAY for money! And YAY for fences! Fences make the best neighbors.

Have fun painting! My dh is also NOT a painter. Actually he really isn't a handyman either. I usually ask his brother for help like that.
