Hello friends! Yesterday, my October print feature ran in the Kitsap Sun. Here is a link to read about, and see photos of some easy, elegant ways to decorate for fall using natural elements and inexpensive accessories. I had a lot of fun putting this together, I hope you like it!

I’ve had a few posts over at Creating Your Space, since I last updated you all.  I hope you’ll find lots of inspiration from my posts this week on How to Mix Fabrics Like a Pro and the Animal Decor trend. Last week I wrote about potting up succluents for indoor display.

The best news though, is that now you can subscribe to the blog, and get an email when I’ve put up a new post! Please head over there and check it out. And, for you Kitsap Sun subscribers, I’ll be in print on Sunday, October 4. Thanks for reading!

I’ve posted about an easy lamp revamp project over at Creating Your Space for the Kitsap Sun today. If you scroll down, you can also catch my two previous posts from this week, including one on a cozy fall color combo.  Have an excellent holiday weekend, I know I’ll be knee- deep in painting projects, how about you?

I’m Writing For the Sun!!!

I’m so very excited to announce that I’ve started blogging for the Kistap Sun, our local paper here in Kitsap County. I’ll be doing what I love to do, by telling my decorating and organizing stories and hopefully inspiring lots of new folks to cozy up their nests. In addition to posting on the blog Creating Your Space, I’ll have a feature story in print on the first Sunday of each month. Please take a moment to check out the introduction to the column and my bio. Thanks for keeping up with me!
