Well, my contest got some pretty great entries and even some back-and-forth between entrants, which is always cool. I think everybody came close, getting to that feeling of having to take things apart and–somehow–put them back together. Which is really what revision is all about! Thank you to everybody who entered.
BUT..There can be only one.
So, I’m picking Cathy C. Hall for her bathroom makeover. Okay, yes, she cracked me up, but that isn’t the “winning” reason. I thought Cathy did a fantastic job of getting in the push/pull of working within the structural/functional stuff you need to keep, at the same time as you tear things apart around that stuff and make big changes. Plus, she gave me this line, which really says it all: “along the way, you find that every time you make a change, it affects the whole makeover.” Yes.
So, Cathy, congrats! And thank you! Send me an email at beckylevine at ymail dot com to claim your prize!
