Welcome to my new and improved site! Believe it or not I started on this back in the fall but, as with most things in life, it took longer than I expected. Mainly due to busyness and then the holidays. Certainly not due to Amanda from The Suitcase Designs because she was awesome! She got some initial insight from me and created exactly what I pictured in my mind. Only problem with my mind is that it changes sometimes 😉 She was so patient with all of my tweaks and graciously edited things until it was perfect for me.
My main reason for wanting to change things was so I could move from Blogger to WordPress. I could go into all kinds of details about why but it’s pretty boring and basically boils down to the fact that now I own my site as opposed to Google. I figured this was a good time to organize things a bit better…I have new navigation tabs up at the top so you can quickly find what you are looking for. I also added dedicated tabs for my Portfolio and Home Tour so all of those posts and photos are in one place. Because I do design work for clients I wanted to have a section of my site that is just dedicated to my portfolio so clients can easily go right to that page if they are not looking to read my blog. I still have updates to make but bear with me as I learn a whole new blogging platform.
I updated my About page as well to give you a sense of who I am and what makes me tick. Feel free to leave a comment or send me an email if there is anything I didn’t answer!
The Shop tab is new and I am excited to have a place to gather all of my favorite finds. I will regularly update my favorite products and deals!
I have some other changes in store as well…I am even more excited about this announcement!! I really want to utilize Facebook as a way to connect more with you guys. I started this blog to get the word out about my decorating business and also because I really love meeting new people. When I get a new comment or question it truly makes my day so I want to spend a little more time getting to do just that.
On February 16th I am going to do my very first edition of designPOST LIVE. Tuesdays will now be dedicated to Facebook only. Instead of posting on the blog I will announce a topic for discussion on Facebook. I will give you advance notice so you can gather your thoughts and then I will be actively on the page all day listening to your design dilemmas, answering questions, giving my best advice, sharing new trends, and whatever else you throw my way! I want it to be fun and casual and ultimately really helpful. I may even show up on videos from time to time! So spread the word to all of your friends. The first topic is one that’s always hot at the start of every season…
