To celebrate, you know, being awesome, we held an amazing Pinterest Party with lots of great prizes, games, and giveaways (including this Home Depot Giveaway). Thanks to everyone who partied with us and made it SO much fun! We will be doing another Pinterest Party soon (before Christmas) so keep an eye out for an announcement about that.

Lorene has been behind the scenes here at Remodelaholic for more than a decade! She believes that planning projects and actually completing them are two different hobbies, but that doesn't stop her from planning at least a dozen projects at any given time. She spends her free time creating memories with her husband and 5 kids, traveling as far as she can afford, and partaking of books in any form available.
