Best Gift Source

So, today I’m going to share with you a little secret…a delightful site I stumbled upon during one of my random Google searches… It is called The Grommet .   The site is a big platform that features unique items made by real folks – many products even have fun videos that build a natural connection between the consumer and the product innovator.   It’s such a friendly way to shop!   With that connection, you feel like you are making a small difference to help support someone’s creativity and dream. I spent a little too much time on this site, (is there such a thing?!) but I’m proud to say that I also got a huge portion of my Christmas shopping done in August-whoo-hoo! The Grommet , brings amazing products from all over to your fingertips.   There is something for everybody.   The videos make it like a friendly ‘Shark Tank’ buying experience. (One of my favorite TV shows by-the-way). Here’s a little video about who they are& be sure to check out the site for yourself;

Cleaning is Fun, Right?

Sometimes I think when you are a *creative* person, you tend to lack in certain organizational and maintenance skills. For me I’m kinda a messy person. Ok, ok, I’m a *really* messy person. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy cleaning…but have to be in the mood for it…which let’s face it, doesn’t happen very often, and so cleaning becomes procrastination. (Am I procrastinating by writing this blog? Whoops!) At my *Faithful Fitness*class today, we played a little game to help us get to know each other better. So, when those of us with “dirty dishes” in our sink had to get up and move…I learned that maybe I’m not alone…but then I was impressed by those who had managed to clean either the night before or first thing in that morning. For years I told my husband that "if I were a good housekeeper too, then I’d be perfect, and that’s just not achievable, I mean we all have to have a flaw right?" (smile)…but after 15 years, the cuteness and charm of that comment has worn off. It’s

Why hire a designer…I mean, I’m awesome at decorating my own home!...(right?)

As we should, women take pride in their home. And who knows how to decorate it better than you right?! Exactly . (you can relax & breathe - we agree - {smiles})  I think the biggest misconception about designers is that we come in and push *our* vision in *your* space…while that may be true of some, it simply is not the case for us. We *get it*. It is not an “all or nothing” thing for us. We help you with as much or *as little* design as YOU want. We value what you, the homeowner, have learned through watching your favorite design shows, reading magazines, and viewed online, you may even have a natural eye for design! But let’s face it….have there been times you feel like a room doesn’t have a *finished look*? You’ve probably struggled with finding the perfect paint color. These factors have nothing to do with you personally being bad at decorating your home…it just means that, maybe you can use a *little* help in certain areas.  And there is nothing wrong with that.
