Hope you had a wonderful weekend, ours was eventful, sports, a wedding,
a family BBQ, and a trip to the ER by ambulance to keep it exciting. It ended up
Mr. Simple had an episode of vertigo, I wasn't home and he called me not feeling well,
the scary symptoms were worsening after being on the phone with him for 20 minutes and I
decided to call 911. I arrived home to six paramedics and firemen in my kitchen, all is well,
they gave him meds and he was home from the hospital after after a few hours.
I'm sure you've seen some of the tours through blogland, a fun get-to-know me game of
tag, if you will. A huge thank you to Amber of Simple Dwellings who invited me to participate.
Be sure to stop over and check out some of Amber's creative DIY projects!
Next up, a few questions for me to answer...
What am I working on right now?
Most recently, I've been focusing on an exciting project that I finally get to
reveal at the end of the week, stay tuned! I've also continued working on client
projects, including the remodel of three bathrooms for my favorite clients,
my mom and dad! :)
How does my work differ from others in my genre?
I think every designer has their own unique style evolving over time from their life experiences, travels, etc. I believe designers are like snowflakes - no two are alike!
How do I write/create what I do?
I see the world through my DIY lens- always trying to figure out a way to take something
I have and make it unique. I love cruising through my local Home Depot or Lowes to
check out everyday items to see how I can creatively incorporate them into projects like
I did with my kitchen hood.
How does my writing/creative process work?
My creative process begins in many varied and unpredictable ways. My mind is always
in DIY-mode.My inspiration comes from everything from nature to the aisles of
hardware to high-end retail stores, to Pinterst, to my fellow bloggers. Like many
designers, the creative process started when I was very young. While a box of tin foil
may represent a mundane method of covering food to some; to me it inspired visions
of mirrors for my Barbie house.
Keeping my writing style simple, short and direct works perfectly for my can't-sit-still personality. I would rather by DIYing and tweaking the styling of a fun reveal for you
than sitting at the computer writing intricate details about it!
Two of my favorite bloggers:
