Hey - So I've been off of my socials for a week but for very good reason! I had another little interior design project in the works that literally ate my entire life last week. ..Like the entire thing.
While it sucks that I missed a post, I really can't complain. That means that this little blog thing is working! The dream is totally being realized and that's thanks, in no small part, to you!!
I just wanted to take a micro-second out of this little post to say - THANK YOU! For reading and supporting. For giving a damn enough to click on my links. For every comment (even the mean ones)! Every interaction, tweet, share, and like has given me the confidence to push forward so thank you X 100!
In all of the excitement, I haven't had time to tell you guys about all of my excitement. Over the past (errr) month, I've stumbled upon a few cool things and now I'm finally gonna share! See below and get hyped.
Spoiler: The last one is kinda shameless self promotion but I am legitimately freaking out about it!
MR. KATE INTERIOR DESIGN VIDEOS
First Up - Mr. Kate is doing behind the scenes interior design videos.
... ahem I mean, MR. KATE IS DOING BEHIND THE SCHENES INTERIOR DESIGN VIDEOS!!!!!
You guys already know from past posts that I'm basically a Mr. Kate mega-fan so the fact that this is so newsworthy to me is probably not a surprise. I love what a funny, original, #creativeweirdo she is and I'm happy to be a part of her growing YouTube fam. If you're not already following her you totally should, and this little video will explain exactly why. #MrKate1Million
My favorite part of her interior design videos so far has to be seeing her process! Since I recently started taking on interior decorating work of my own, it's helped so much to see that her process isn't miles off of mine. The one thing I can't figure out is how the hell she does installs looking all cute with booties on? If I could be bare foot while doing an install, I totally would. ....is that weird? :/
YOUNG HOUSE LOVE HAS A PODCAST
So I have to admit, I'm fairly new to Young House Love. I'm not exactly sure how I managed to miss out on all of their blog-y, book writing, interiors goodness but, I did. Now I feel like I have sooo much to catch up on, and I'm starting with their podcast!
To sum it up for you, it's basically a mix of interior design, game show fun, and the cutest couple that's ever happened. They talk about their adventures in blogging, home improvement, and life in general. ...I'm not sure that I'm doing it justice but I'm addicted. Download an episode and, I promise, you will be too!
Alright, so clearly, this is the shameless self promotional plug but - it's f*#king exciting!
I've never been nominated for anything and I hardly expect to win, given the completion. Still, I'm really stoked on this. I've been buzzing about the nomination (and the tiny secret dream that consists of my actually winning) for the past month. I feel like a dummy for not sharing it sooner because there are only like 3 days left to vote but here it is.
I was nominated for an Amara Interior Blog Award and you should totally
I don't want to drone on about the (really f-ing exciting) nomination for too long so I'll stop here with an additional thank you! Thank you for all your support. Thank you for coming with me on this journey. Thanks for accepting me as I am. And most importantly, thank you for reading to this point. If you got this far you are my ride or die and I owe you coffee some day. : )
Expect an on time post next week about some exciting new Ikea developments!
all the love
