When I first hit the publish button back in March 2011, I had no idea how my life would change, but boy has it. My life is different, not because I’m making hoards of money (I’m not) and not because strangers on the street recognize me (they don’t) but because of the the wonderful people I have met, the partnerships I have formed, and the fabulous opportunities I get offered every day.
So I was minding my own business, the other day and a publisher contacted me about writing a book. I was thinking I would like to write a book, and so I said yes. (Did I say that out loud?)
Yes, I’m writing a book!!
Meanwhile I work full-time at the blog thing, while also working in freelance writing and photography, and helping clients make their homes more beautiful. Do I have time to write a book? No, not really. But did I say yes? Of course! I’ll figure it out, somehow.
One of the things I am counting on is that I can talk about the book writing process here. I won’t have as much time to work on projects, so I’ll have to share with you what is going on with the book, what I photographed, and what I’m writing. I sure hope that sounds good to you. It won’t be ready until August of 2015. The book will be about French decor, of course. You’ll get to ride along and see what goes well, and what flops.
It will be like a front row seat at a reality show, only without the cameras, or the commercials. I still can’t believe I’m doing this. Am I crazy???? Hold me!
S I L E N T S C R E A M !!!!!
Okay, onto the scoop.
Happy Monday everyone and welcome to another edition of The Scoop!
Since we last partied, it seems like all of my time has been consumed with all things home renovation at our new to us house. Hopefully, demo will be finished up this week and we can start putting it all back together. I’ve spent more hours than I can count at Lowes and running here, there and everywhere to make selections and pick up this, that and the other thing.
I can’t wait until it all starts coming together so that I can share it with you!
In the meantime, I’ve still been puttering around my current house. Have you ever blown your own self away? That’s what happened to me when the makeover of my kitchen chairs was completed.
Let’s get on with it, shall we?
Our host this week is…
Suzy from Worthing Court
I’m so happy to be hosting the party this week! Let me show you a few things from last week that caught my eye.
There are still several weeks of summer left and sunflowers are blooming everywhere around here. Priscilla made an adorable sunflower wreath and I love the black and white checked ribbon that she used.
Diane shared how she turned a vintage window into a picture frame with nautical touches.
Tracey shared a perfect recipe for the hot days of summer. Yum.
I love the makeover that Mary gave to her armoire. It looks so pretty with all of the accessories in the room.
Heather did a fantastic job on her son’s room. So many wonderful elements.
Now, let’s see what you’ve been up to!
