Ok friends, I have a couple of things I wanted to cover today. First, Tim and I will be back on Channel 2 on July 4th. This time around we would love to talk about specific design dilemmas that viewers have. So, this is where you come in! I need you to send in your design dilemmas with a few photos that we could talk about on the air. Tim and I have actually done something like this on the blog before.
For example, Jenny sent me a photo of her fireplace. Her dilemma was that the fireplace was set in a corner and Jenny didn't really know how to decorate the mantle due to the triangular nature of it.
Jenny mentioned in her e-mail that she was a teacher and loved vintage school supplies, so of course we wanted to tell her story with her decor and the design I came up with involved all sorts of revamped educational supplies! So, I photoshopped some things in to show Jenny what I was thinking.
You can read more about Jenny's mantle here. To possibly have your design dilemma featured on Channel 2, please send a photo and quick explanation of your issue to firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks!
Now on to the next issue at hand. I have mentioned that Tim and I are preparing to go to the Junk Hippy Roadshow (a big, awesome flea market) in Oklahoma City this weekend. Well, if you're in the area- you should totally come out and see us! It looks like it's going to be an awesome show and we've got all sorts of goodies to sell!! :)
Some of the stuff we are going to sell. . .
Lastly, Tim and I were thrilled yesterday when we received an e-mail from Cathie Filian to let us know she gave us a little shout out on her blog.
Cathie is an Emmy nominated television host of HGTV/DIY's show "Creative Juice," producer of TV Shows (including Craft Wars on TLC), and I have dubbed her "the queen of crafting."
We met Cathie through a mutual friend a few years ago on a trip out to LA. It was pretty amazing to meet someone who was doing exactly what Tim and I wanted to do. We were and continue to be encouraged by Cathie and her crafting partner Steve! I hope that Tim and I can serve as that type of encouragement to others in the future!
