Design*Sponge Sneak Peek

Here, my dears and my darlings, is a picture of my kitchen that was included in my freaking! sneak peek on Design*Sponge. I was, seriously, geekily, so excited to be asked to do this. I check Design*Sponge everyday. On Mondays I check it multiple times a day to see the new sneak peeks. Because, the straight out truth is, I am completely voyeuristic when it comes to interesting interiors. When I find images of the insides of someone's home that I like it gives me a high. Like chocolate or dancing or...well, you know. I find so many images of homes I would love to explore. And sometimes, truthfully, I look around my own place and think, "Why isn't my house as cool and interesting?" But mostly it just gives me major motivation to create my own environment better and more satisfying.
On a somewhat tangential point, this can be difficult when you have a family and when said family has different ideas about what makes a good home and when you yourself, being a completely open and unstubborn person, gets stuck on an idea and can't bare (is that the right spelling? probably not) the thought of other family members not seeing the complete rightness and brilliance of your concept. But perhaps I will save that whole can of worms topic for another time.
The point here is, I was on Design*Sponge. And I'm not gonna pretend it didn't make me very happy. And when I am rich and famous (and beautiful and totally buff...because don't all those things go together?) I will remember D*S. And I will be happy.
please insert space here and change of topic because, i swear, i keep trying to make a space here but i save it and, grrr, when i preview it all runs together.
Blogging. I've been thinking about starting it up again (after my small first attempt). I have been thrilled to find blogs I want to return to daily and in a way I feel like I want to be a more active part of that. Part of the reason I'm hesitating is that I'm not at all sure I'll be able to live up to the standards of the creative and inspiring bloggers I have been drawn to. And frankly, it seems like a pretty big commitment. But let's you and I not pretend I haven't been glued to this blue screen since I discovered this land of makers and designers and fascinating creative people. All over the world. It is such a blessing. It's like finding your people.

So here I go. Because connecting with you all has truly been an important part of my life the past year.

xoxo to eternity!
note: Please excuse the look of it until I get a handle on how to blog. It's all a bit confusing to me. But I'll figure it out. I ain't a dumb-a-ling. :)

Yeah, I'm sooo happy you decided to start blogging again! I've been loving your flickr photos since I saw your sneak peek. I can't wait for more!
I would be over the top excited to be featured on D*S, though there's a lot more projects that would need to be finished before that could ever be a possibility. Congratulations!
