All Over The Place!

I’m a bit frenzied in this post, because there there are a couple things I want to tell you about and they aren’t all design related.

I’m a huge Amazon fan.  It makes my life so much easier for gift-giving.  Since my family is spread out all across the United States, I’ve often written up my gift list and Amazon usually can cover everything on it.  Plus, whenever I know about a new design book on the market, I can go to Amazon to check it out (and usually get the best price for it!).

Well, now they have a contest going on called Amazon’s 10th Anniversary Wishlist Sweepstakes and the prizes are incredible.  Ranging from new home electronics (55” HDTV) to a new dream kitchen with all new appliances.

All you do is go HERE and you’ll be linked to their sweepstakes.  You have to create a wishlist to enter, but that’s easy (and fun!).

And BTW FTC, I’m not getting paid to endorse this!  :)

Now for some house cleaning…

I would like to send a belated thank you to Sue Whitney of Junkmarket Style for the fabulous gift of her two books that I didn’t (but now do) own!  Sue was kind enough to send Junk Beautiful Outdoor Edition and Junk Beautiful:  Room by Room Makeovers with Junkmarket Style to me in response to me writing a post on her!  Thank you Sue!  Love her and love her ingenious creations!  Visit Junkmarket Style to check her out!

Finally, I’ve been surfing around the internet and have a few fun sites for you to visit…

My friend, Teresa, sent me a link to Fit Click, which is a social fitness site for those who are interested with getting the right ratio of exercise to calories.  It’s free and it’s a wonderful site.

I’m a bit late in posting this, but my daughter and I made the BEST Mango Salsa this summer for a school project she had.  The site is called Great Salsa and it’s loaded with yummy recipes!

Love the murals, especially the last, pretty, whimsical nursery one - so lovely!! And that antique (looking?) cabinet being used for a change table is delish!

Thanks for the birthday wishes, Rebecca. I feel a little funny writing about myself! Haha! You asked what my Inspiration Sheets look like. Well... I'm pretty new at this, but what I do is pull together some photos that reflect the direction I think my client should take for her/his room and I drop them into a PhotoShop document - add some text explaining my thoughts/ideas - make it look pretty - and then publish it as a PDF to send to her/him. My photos come from internet searches or from trips I've taken to local furniture, fabric, linen, etc. stores. A full furniture layout plan isn't included unless the client specifically request that additional service.
What do you do?

Cheers,
Victoria @ DesignTies
