Well…. well sweet followers!!!
Another month has come and gone! Can you believe it? I mean my head says it is still May, but to the rest of the world it is the end of a beautiful summer and the start to a crisp fall. It is undeniable that the weather I have been receiving has been just so refreshing. It has been rainy some days, but then just to clear up and be like a high 70’s kinda day with the sun in it’s full glory. Ohh how I love warm weather, but how I hate to see it go!
I must have the most faithful followers a blogger could have! I mean here it is August almost a year into this blog and….I have posted nothing about design….or even 1/4 of the things I claimed! Trust me….it is a WORK in progress. It’s just funny to me all the things that I thought I would have accomplished in this blog by now. I mean I had serious high hopes. I was like, “Oh yeah. This blog is going to be so trendy. So up to date. So popular. So full of life and ideas. & Is going to inspire SO many people!” Ha!! What a joke! I can barely say this blog has inspired me…& I’m the writer. Within this year I have started a TON of projects, but finished only a handful of them. I hope some of you know where I am coming from….and if you don’t considered yourself very blessed! I am the type of person that has a MILLION & ONE ideas…..but completes like 3 of those ideas within the time frame I wanted. Goodness, goodness!!
Needless to say…..It’s Fall, which means it is time for school to start back! I don’t think I have ever been MORE excited about a semester starting than I am right now. I have a pretty light class load that should make for an enjoyable semester. & Now I have started back working at a previous job I used to have. Oh, I think you guys would LOVE IT!! It’s a furniture & home decor UPSCALE consignment store. If you thought the big brand name stores were fun, oh how you would die in this one! We have everything from vintage to victorian, from traditional to contemporary, & from ethnic to modern. Hopefully I can place some pieces from the store up soon….not to sell, but just to show you some of the most RANDOM pieces that people have in their homes. It’s SUCH a blast to work there, because it never really feels like work. That’s when you know you are in the right place in life! My dad always told me that age old quote about how if you loved your job, you would never work a day in your life. Oh how right he was!
This entry is really just to ensure you…well more like myself, that this blog is going to get back on the tracks of the vision I first had for it. I really just want to be an encouragement for all of you & just want to bring design to you wherever you are in life and in the world. I believe design to not be an exclusive art form, but to be in every aspect of life. I mean think about it…design is on everything you put your fingers on. The design of a human body, the car you drive to work, the food you eat, the cushy chair you sit on, to the pillow you lay your head on at night. Design is something you can not escape. You may not notice it, but that never means that it isn’t there. Look for it the next time you think about it. Let it blow your mind & let that mind boggling experience encourage you to design something for yourself!!
Well enjoy your day, and your glorious week friends!!! The best is YET to come!! I promise some juicy pieces and I think that my creative juices will be in full force when school starts. I picture us spending late nights studying and conversing together. Oh how I enjoy journeys like these!!
In love & inspiration,
