Ok, I’ll admit it. Lately I have been a major slacker when it comes to blogging…and cooking and crafting. Other than hanging out with the planet’s most adorable baby (who is now crawling), I’ve spent every waking moment decorating like a crazy person and getting loose ends tied up to officially launch my local business in a couple weeks.
Today I thought I’d give you a peek at some of the projects I’ve been working on. First is the dining room of my friend Laura. You might remember her daughter Olive’s nursery that I helped with a couple years ago. I have a big fat crush on this space and my own dining room felt a bit sad and homely after spending so much time in this one. It was a whirlwind project, and Laura and I were pretty shocked we actually pulled it off in 72 hours. (Several weeks of emails and pinning preceded this.) I’ll share more pics and project details in a post later this month.
Also, I’m in the middle of helping another friend decorate his recently purchased 100 year old loft. This has been a really fun project so far because it’s the most masculine space I’ve ever worked on. Until everything comes in and I have actual pictures, here is the design board with some of the items that will fill the living room.
I’m crossing my fingers that the website will be ready to go in a couple weeks. Then you’ll be able to see more of what I’ve been working on the last couple months. Another big thing that happened in September was a video shoot. I hired these guys to shoot a promotional video for the business site…I’m excited to see the final product but nervous about hearing myself talk. “I just love how my voice sounds on recordings.” Have you ever heard those words uttered by anyone before? Me neither.
Thanks for being patient with me through this phase of sporadic posting…I’m thinking of taking a little more time “off” from the blog to revamp and refocus before jumping into the holidays. Sometimes I find myself being pulled to try and imitate other bloggers that seem to be doing bigger and better things. I have to fight that urge and realize that if this site is ever going to be an authentic representation of my creative musings then I have to stop comparing and being influenced by others. Easier said than done. I saw this quote the other day and think it’s going to be my new mantra of the moment: “Don’t compare you beginnings to someone else’s middle.” Word.
