It's Come to This
I admit it. I've been one of those insomniac blog readers. If I couldn't sleep, I'd sit down at the computer, hand on the mouse searching for anything to keep my mind off not being able sleep. Typically, I find myself searching decorating and design blogs that give great ideas and a little spark to fuel my flame for my next decorating gig.
I can honestly say - I HAVE NEVER COMMENTED ON ANY BLOG I'VE EVER READ WHILE DOING THE INSOMNIAC SEARCH. I know! It's a shame. I've read some fabulous blogs and learned so many wonderful things. The blog that sent my thoughts into overdrive wondering if I could do this myself? Janell Beals at Isabella and Max Rooms. Love her ideas - simple and practical. Love her style - beautiful and in the moment. Love her blog - like conversation with the girls.
So...why would I be starting my own blog hoping for readers? Decorating gives me UBER BLISS! I believe the only way to find it and keep it is to be committed to keeping my creative buzz a goin' by sharing current decorating jobs and personal projects. So...off I go into the world of blogging.
First project...my daughter's room. Kendra is 14 and she's gone to camp for a month. This is the PERFECT time to take her ideas of the ever so popular turquoise/orange/hot pink fake fur and beads and create a contemporary room that still oozes of girlie fun.
I found this FABULOSO fabric at Joann's Fabrics and Crafts last night and I now have all the inspiration I need. The last yard of chocolate flowered fabric screamed 'buy me!' and the creative buzz began. Within a minute the entire room unfolded in my head and I can't tell you the UBER BLISS that I found. UBER BLISS, people!
More later about the thrift store finds and hands on projects that will accompany these yummy fabrics.
