A little bit about Amy of Yellow Fish Paperie …
I have always loved snail mail and used to write daily letters to my grandparents as a kid. I embellished these as much as possible with stickers, sealing wax, personalized stationary, embossers and of course, stamps! Getting a personal letter in the mail is a great feeling and I love designing and creating products to help give letters and invitations that extra something. This interest led me to create Yellow Fish Paperie. When I’m not making stamps and stationary, I enjoy cooking, gardening, and reading scripture and books of all sorts. I live in Oregon with my wonderful husband and work part time at a non-profit that helps charities to meet their goals.
In case I’m not the only one who has been dreaming of an address stamp of their very own – Yellow Fish Paperie is giving one away! Enter here …
We are in the process of buying our first home (closing date May 31st!), and this would be awesome! :)

I have definitely been trying to work on cleaning out lately too! Otherwise, our current home project is fixing up the yard now that the weather is nice and planting the garden again. :)

i hope to do something about our garage lol
Lol' well we completed our Project Home in Sept – but while we are renting I came up with a snazzy way to grow strawberries (and not leave them behind when we move!)
My husband and I are working on all our landscaping (which has been a 2 year project in total, and really a 7-year project if you consider all the tweaks we've done along the way)… in the next couple of days I'll be staining some wooden benches that my parents were getting rid of– I sanded them today with the orbital-sander, and they cleaned up quite nicely.

Last year it was the fence… which I am still totally in love with. We did it entirely by ourselves and although it took WAY longer than it was projected, it was worth it. This year, (Tuesday actually) we had a play set installed. And we paid the extra charge for someone else to put it in… it's nice to be able to just enjoy it this time instead of try to balance to two curious kiddos AND power tools! :) I'm adding windchimes, bird houses and bird feeders to the front of the house and hoping to get some of the landscaping under control, too.

We have a finished basement, but it's not finished well. We'll be replacing the weird knotty pine paneling with drywall as our next project.

We are currently working on redoing our great room. This is our last room on the main level abd I have been delaying!
Your outside will be an oasis this summer! I totally agree that some projects are left to the "experts" – playset definitely falls into that for me!
Orbital-sander! Go Jeanette!!! I leave all that stuff to Dominic :)
Oh dear, the garage is a never ending project around here!
Congrats! I hope all goes smooth with your closing!
