I am hoping for this blog to detail my journey as a newbie in the world of home renovations. I hope my beginnings are not indicative of things to come. I made an offer on my first investment home and lost it to someone who paid over asking. It was on MLS for one day when I put the offer in and there were 5 other offers on the table. The market in this small college town seems rather busy and competitive! This Dallas girl (though truly an Arkansas girl) was thinking I would come here and it would be a bit easier. ha! Keep your fingers crossed that I find another good one! Until then, I will focus full time on accessory design - my other passion!
