There is just never a dull moment around here! I’m sure you all feel the same.
Tuesday was supposed to be my catch up day, but instead I ended the day with even more projects…
HOW does that keep happening??
I’ll tell ya how, it’s just too hard to say “No” when a fun opportunity comes your way! When mom and I used to have an interior design business together, we would walk away from some of our initial consultation meetings trying not to run out the door…then mom would always say, “But the house speaks to me, we can make this work don’t you think?” and low and behold, we would sign on to another project.
And that is what I find myself doing still, just differently…I overfill my plate because the projects and events and opportunities…well, LIFE just speaks to me and I can’t say no to life, so we find a way to make things work.
But like I said last week, I’ll be a little slower posting on the blog over the next few weeks because of some of those outside projects….
First, the site update is underway and I’m frantically trying to get the stories written that I promised to share with you, like the wedding series. (Here’s a few sneak peaks ~ wedding images courtesy of the fabulous Liz Banfield…)
This will always be one of my most favorite days!
And I’m still finishing up the playroom (here’s another little sneak peak…)
I’m in love with this house fabric from Ikea!
Those Alphabet Soup canvases with the girls names started the interior design inspiration for the new addition! I’ll be talking about them more in the weeks to come, but most definitely check out Name Your Design. Fabulous and fun additions for your kids rooms (and they have a sale going on now until October 31st!! WhooHoo!)
We were also busy Wednesday doing a photo shoot with the girls from Weestock (man they are talented and have the patience of Job!)
Note the little “helpers” below…
I say “helpers” loosely, of course.
And being that this weekend is Halloween, I would be remiss in not reminding you how to do sexy, smoky party eyes. Remember that tutorial? You bet I’ll be doing that again on Sunday! (and Monday to balance my dark circles from Sunday…)
Next week we have another photo shoot at the house for one of my new favorite magazines. Last night I was working on Halloween for next year (always seems crazy to me how far out some of these things need to happen! Back in my design days at Neiman Marcus, I remember working with the Visual Team on Christmas…in July…3 years before the actual Holiday installation date. Just nutty the planning that has to go into these things….) So last night was all about pulling together an inspiration board for Monday’s Halloween photo shoot. Can’t wait to share more of this!
Enjoy your weekend everyone! Happy Halloween!
