I am an Interior Designer.
I draw a great deal of inspiration from my travels.
I truly believe travel has shaped the designer that I am today.
I recently wrote a Guest Blog Post for Kelly over at Modern Earth Design.
Thought I would share my door photography and snippets of my guest blog post with you….
I am a designer.
Nothing boring ever happens. Ever.
Well, one exception: Excel spread sheets. B*O*R*I*N*G
However, in design, so many things are EXCITING !!!
I like to jump outside the box a little.
CASE IN POINT :
Do you love these as much as I do? Clearly, not only am I a white cotton sheet hussy, I am a grapevine lighting trollop too. Are you a floozy just like me?

You know, I started to do some serious thinking
Uhhhumm, a rare moment indeedy : thinking YES, serious NO
I bet most writers plan their blog writing.
Well, not me. I am one of those “fly by the seat of your pants” kinda gals.
Yesterday was no exception. Well, except I flew by the seat of my pants from the tree house.
It seems, every single day….someone truly amazes me.
Have you had that happen ? The absolute kindness of a stranger. Or a new friendship that happens almost instantly? An authentic, down to earth friendship and support of a friend…whether they live next door, in another country, or in an all together different way of life.
~ A DAY IN THE TREE HOUSE ~
with my handy dandy favourite app.
I have declared FRIDAY as app loving friday. There you go, I have a habit of creating national holidays. Everyone, leave work, and go and download this funky app called CARTOONATIC.
It’s friday, hopefully your absence will go by un~noticed…
if only for a quick moment.
It is official. I am an all cotton, white linens lovin’, funky outhouse crazed – hussy. A natural fibers hussy is my new official title. I think I will have it printed on my biz cards. Jokes, Mom, jokes. Join me-everyone- in my fight against nasty, uncomfortable, polyester sheets. That P word is a bad word in my sleeping bliss. Very bad word. Never thought I would say (aka ADMIT) that I was such a sheet freak.
Would I give up my first-born child for nice quality sheets and pillowcases ??? Well, maybe not, but I would give the thought some pause. I would contemplate it. But only for a moment. Shelby will be so happy to hear that. The poor girl has suffered all these years when I say : “here- take my first-born child”. Even. Steven. Fair trade. Good thing Shelby has a sense of humour. Shelbella, I LOVE YOU more than SHEETS. Snicker snicker. But I still love WHITE too.
Design life has always been a super busy life for me. How does everyone else have time to brush their hair?! Taking time to just stop and enjoy the quiet moments can be a challenge. Please tell me that everyone has this time crunch challenge !
