When I started this blog in May I was bursting with passion and ideas about design (still am), so it really was a natural next step....(free!) I was spending so much time reading design blogs at night, I thought, "Why not just start one myself."
When I first wrote Sissy about fabric or something asked me if I worked in design. I said, "No. But I want to." When you know you have a strong desire about something, don't you find yourself looking for validation outside of you?
Anyway, I hope y'all are tired about me sharing everything about what it going on and starting a business. This is just how it is unfolding for us and I want to share it! I really do have a desire to have a successful design business one day, to have a shop, and to keep writing.
I was talking with a design blogger yesterday and she was telling me how a lot of designers who have their design business up-and-running and then decide to blog think negatively about bloggers who then wish to create a design business after they have been blogging (like me). I can see how they might feel that way...but life is a journey and none of us can really plan where it might take us. Well, we can plan, and we should, but "life is what happens after we have already made plans" right?
But even though I dreamed of being published one day I didn't think (if it did happen at all), that it would happen so soon. I still don't know the date but you know I will share when they are here!
And now they tell me that the renovation magazine "Kitchen and Bath Makeovers" (a sister company of BH & G) will be shooting our master bath. I am so excited!!
And the Milk and Honey team (Anisa and I) are meeting with our first prospective client today...here home in Buckhead is going through a major renovation. Fingers crossed that the family likes us!
Thank you, readers, for reading when you do and your comments and encouragement have meant so much. Without you none of this would be happening!
