Don't be shy!


Okay friends....I know you're visiting regularly, (thank you!) yet you are all too shy to leave comments. In fact, I have a visitor in Arlington Heights, Illinois and some in other places who visit almost daily, and yet no introduction or hello. Don't be shy, folks...I'm easy to talk with! I would LOVE some feedback or at least to begin some rapport. I am not the type who likes to hear herself talk. It's getting lonely on this blog...let's hear from some of you!

Please think about leaving a comment sometime. Let me know what you like, don't like or what you'd like to see for my next children's wall art design. Make suggestions for other topics you'd like information about. My love and background is interior design...heck I've got two interior design companies! Pick my brain about your next design dilemma...anything at all. Leave some tips of your own...I know each of you has your own creative talents to share.

I'd love to hear from you and to make some new friends out there in cyberspace. Some of my best friends are other artists, retailers and designers whom I have met through this wonderful internet....and there is always room for another friend!

I love your blog!! Thanks for all the awesome tips. Please help me. I have three kids (boy 14, girl 7, boy5). The boys are all BOY and my daughter is a little princess. We are trying to decorate a playroom that they can all be happy with. I am going to get a muralist to paint the walls. I don't care for modern design and HATE things that are too cartoonish. Do you have any suggestions? I am at a loss.

Sherri-

Hi! I just found your blog tonight and am thrilled to find it. I loved reading your latest post about the "design dilema." I feel like I have a similar problem. We just moved back to the San Deigo area and are seriously downsizing to get in a house in a good school district. So my 5 year old daughter and 2 1/2 year old son will be sharig a room. She previously had a VERY girly room with white furniture and everything was bright pink and green. He had a helicopter room since Daddy flies helicopters. I can not put the two together, it would be a decorating nightmare! So I think I have settled on a bug theme, that they will both appreciate. Long story short, I appreciated hearing that others have the same type problem. I will look forward to checking out your blog often!

Hi Heidi,
Thanks so much for your kind words and your visit. First of all, I can relate to your desire to have your children in a good school district and therefore sacrificing the "dream home" in order to ensure a good education for your kids. You're a great mom and will never regret that decision. I bought the smallest model (all we could afford) of home in our new neighborhood just to ensure we lived in a good neighborhood for my children. Over the years, my kids have never said "wish we had a bigger home". They live a wholesome, happy life, have similar good kids to play with and have received a great education. It was all worth it!
As for your decision to give your son and daughter a "bugs room" that was an excellent choice! Be sure to put some ladybugs and dragonflies in for your daughter and a spider or two for your son! If you have the furniture layout already determined, try to place these more "girly" bugs near your daughter's bed and the others closer to your son's bed. It will help to define their personal spaces a bit for them. Maybe you could even consider having a bug "in flight" over each headboard and little dashes spelling out each child's name behind the bug...as if the bug was "sky-writing" the name. If that doesn't make sense, let me know and I can fax you a sketch of it. Another cool idea would be to have a "Charlotte's Web" style spiderweb over each headboard with each child's name spelled out in the web.
Thanks again for visiting and commenting. Please stay in touch!
