Last week I asked folks on my social media channels whether they had any questions for me and, behold… folks responded! Last Tuesday I was on CT Style which meant… I was bathed and dressed and makeup-ed SO I sat down to answer all your fun questions!
You know how I sometimes post a shiny pretty “room reveal?” (I have a whole page of ’em right here!) Man, those rooms are nice. Tidy. Not a rogue sock or dust bunny to be found. That’s basically the norm around here, but today my friend Chelsea from Two Twenty One challenged us to DIG DEEP and try our hardest to stage our normally pristine homes the way one might “imagine” a regular ol’ house might look. Just so we’re clear… this was a STRETCH. Let me know what changes you might make to achieve that “keeping it real” look… I’m afraid I’m a little out of my depth here.
For those of you who’ve been with me from the ugly beginning, you may have heard me reference the Haven Conference. I heard about the conference about two months into my blog and couldn’t wait to attend some ten months later. It’s a conference specifically for DIY/ Home Decor bloggers and when I first went, I pretty much learned that I was 0 for 10 when it came to my blog. Three years later, I’m still going and… I’ve learned a few tricks and gained a TON of friends!
I don’t normally post on Fridays, but I wanted to hop in to give you a Home and Family update since I have been SO touched by the outpouring of support and votes and shares and love from my readers, friends and family! I’m bummed but not surprised to tell you guys that they announced that Jeremy Rabe (aka the FYI Guy) will be moving forward to the next round. For anyone foolish enough to watch my Facebook live Bottletalks each night, you already knew this, but I wanted to share here publicly for those of you who missed it.
