Welcome! Wow, I’m so excited you are here!
This blog has been a long time in the making, but I have to give a quick shout to my girl Reni with Bliss & Tell Branding. Love her and highly recommend her if you need any creative/graphic/branding work done!
I’ll be tweaking this blog and my new site for the next couple of weeks (I know some of the links are not working yet!), but I couldn’t wait a second longer to launch my new business name and sites. They are OBNOXIOUSLY overdue… I have had the logo/concept for my new brand for about nine months now!
OK, I haven’t blogged on my old blog for months now because I have been waiting on this one, so where to start? I have so many sessions that were never posted! I want to start with pictures of my new home office! I kicked Emily out of her room (don’t feel bad for her, we built an addition onto the house for her-more on THAT later), and turned it into my office. I’ve been in it a few months now and love finally having my own space! Officing out of the master bedroom was just not working for so many reasons!
This is probably the only time you will ever see it this clean and organized (unless you are a new client and I have shoved everything in one of the desk drawers). I’m so right brained!
The custom upholstery on the bench and my office chair I had made are some of my favorite parts of the office. Who says you have to have a boring black office chair? I picked out some killer Ikat fabric and turned an ordinary chair into a showpiece! When Jesse saw it for the first time he said, “Well, you aren’t afraid of color are you?”
A couple of things I would have done differently if I could go back in time- 1) I would not have tried to match the stain on the new wood floors to the floors that run through the rest of my house. Even though we had the rest of our floors refinished a year ago, new wood just does not take stain- even the exact same color stain- the same way that 20 year old floors take it. I mean- its very close- but I can still tell it is not the exact same color and it bugs. 2) I had the walls painted white so they would show off the photography- like an art gallery. I love it, but painting a room white just went against every fiber of my being, so I wanted to do something dramatic with the ceiling. I chose “metallic” paint… which does not look so metallic because I got it in the matte finish. I don’t know what I was thinking- I definitely should have gotten a different finish. So the ceilings are gray. A very pretty gray, but not the sparkly metallic I was hoping for.
Anyway, I would so love it if you would check out the new site and “like” me on Facebook. I am definitely going to have some good deals for clients that are hooked up with my Facebook page.
Thanks again for visiting!
