We really are excited about "In the Mix"... and have been before Mix even opened its doors... we're both self-confessed blog-lovers- read a variety of blogs each morning in PJs with coffee...but wow, we did not realize the time and energy it takes to keep a blog up! Kudos to all of the regular bloggers out there! The past few months have been a little busy with an engagement (Bethany) and a new baby girl (Adrian), but now we're back in action and ready to get this blog going! To start off on a fun note, we'd like to share with you our most fun recent project... designing a playhouse for the Children's Volunteer Network auction in Rosemary Beach, Florida! We were absolutely thrilled when Chad at Harrison Design Associates invited us to join them along with ChiMar Construction of the Gulf Coast and The Vine on Saint Simons to collaborate on a playhouse for CVHN to auction off for charity... 100% of proceeds went to CVHN! And we are even more thrilled to announce that the playhouse sold for $5,800.00... raising the most money of all the playhouses!

We had a great time working on the playhouse and want to send a big thank you to all of our vendors who so generously donated: Oopsy Daisy Artwork for Kids, Steve Schoettle of Apex Industries, Paul and Cathy Hegeman of Empire Drapery Company, Mainly Baskets and Robin Clarke of Southern Accessories Today, The Eclectic Cottage on Saint Simons, The Strand on Saint Simons, Josie Kennedy the Artist, Rod Yoder of Yoder's Custom Trimworks, Lacefield Designs and Gary Routman of J. Douglas... and also to my soon-to-be mother-in-law Kay Vann who made the trip down with me to join the team in working!
