We Have a Chance for an Awesome Miracle!…of course, when is a miracle not awesome, right? 😉

We have until June 9th to get votes in for the semi-finals!  Those votes and the appeal of the project, count towards 20% of the judging so each one counts! 🙂 YOUR VOTE MAKES A DIFFERENCE! XO … Top 50 projects make it through to the semi’s where we get a chance to share further details, continue collecting votes and work on advancing to the finals.  That is a dream almost too exciting to seem real!…one step at a time though.  To make semi-finals would be a dream to me already!  I do want all the neighborhood to have fun with Ty though!  And that of course means we have to win! hehe… So dream big, go for gold, do our very best and then know that the results are completely out of our control.  Ty Pennington’s the finish line…but the semi-finals are the next leg of the race that we have to get to first. 😉


I created a Facebook page for the project, to be able to check in as we go, as well as to find out more about it all.  It’s also a simple page to share with others if inspired to pass the project along for further support.  There is a link to the project entry page with Voting instructions as well.  Facebook URL:


You can read more about my dream for the apartments and the foundation here…what my dad and I have been working towards, little by little, for 3 1/2 years now.  The coffee shop is the newest addition to the project, so I haven’t had a chance to post about it yet… But please feel free to ask anything of interest and I will answer to the best of my ability. (Here or on the FB page) 🙂

If you share, please make sure to tell everyone that they have to “vote” and not just “like” the project… a lot of people have liked it straight from FB pages, and although it fills my heart with warmth to feel the support coming in, only the Votes count towards the judging!  THANK YOU!
