1. Thanks for the award!!
The lovely Mrs B at Decorating a Modern Home recently gave DesignTies the Beautiful Blogger award.
It’s always an honour to receive an award from a blog buddy. Sometimes the blogging mojo needs a bit of a boost, and receiving an award for what we do is a great mojo booster!! Thank you so much, Mrs B — we love reading your blog and following the progress of your beautiful home :-)
Now we’re going to pass this award along to some other beautiful blogs… so hard to choose, because we love so many great blogs!! We’re going to take this opportunity to share some of our favourite blogs that are either new, or that don’t have a huge following but should!!
Diane Schuller Lifestyle Photography: Diane’s beautiful photographs will capture your imagination and make you want to pick up a camera and do what she does :-)
Marcus Designs: Nancy is a new blogger in Vancouver. Not only does she have great home decor ideas, she’s also an extremely talented artist. Be sure to check out her art portfolio when you visit her blog.
Moving Designz: If you haven’t checked out the gorgeous projects that Susan is working on, you don’t know what you’re missing!! PEI might be our smallest province, but it’s super-big on talent!!
Hue: Rachel always comes up with the most interesting colour-related topics. And she has not one but TWO purple sofas in her living room!!
LiveYourStyle: Do you know where Mauritius is?? Sharon can tell you, because she lives and decorates and blogs on this beautiful island.
qerat: Quite possibly the most beautiful furniture. Ever.
theLennoxx: Every time I do a search for pictures to include in my blog posts, I end up at theLennoxx. Linda and I must share a home decor brain ;-)
2. Make that seventeen colours
Kathy from Emptynester left a comment on my Colours of the Sweet Sixteen post and mentioned that she would have been interested to see what room I would have come up with for the University of Texas. Kathy, this is for you!!
3. The new JAX Decor & Design web site
At Kimberley Seldon’s Business of Design seminars earlier this month, one of my “take action” tasks to complete before the end of the month was to update my web site for JAX Decor & Design with my revised services and rates. I also had to update my portfolio. Well, I finally got my butt in gear and did it!! I’d love to know what you think :-)
4. Don’t forget Earth Hour!
At 8:30 tonight (Saturday, March 27th), don’t forget to turn off your lights for one hour in support of Earth Hour. Help support the campaign for climate awareness!!
