Candice Olson!

My heart is still racing from my fabulous time with Candice Olson yesterday! She was so very personable and TALL! (She wears a size 11 shoe, by the way and played volleyball for the Canadian Women's Team!) I had the chance to ask her a few questions about her philosophy on designing for children as well as about show biz for designers. She had some great insights and was full of wonderful advice! I received an autograph as well, written on a sample of one of her newest wall paper designs, of course! I will be blogging in more detail about this wonderful designer and my experience with her, on Home Workshop blog. Stay tuned there for the post. It will likely go up in the next week. I have much to share!

What a wonderful opportunity for you (and her !) I think she has been so instrumental in helping the designing public realize that good design requires expertise, talent and money! Congrats that you were able to spend time with her.

Oh how utterly jealous I am of you!!! I LOVE Candice and want her to come to my house and do the entire thing! You go girl! That surely beats out Paula. Sorry Paula!:(

You are all so right...I felt very honored to be there and to have a few minutes of time with her. I'm still riding that wave of excitement and went out to find a beautiful frame for my photo and autograph this morning. I'll post an image when it's completed. I'm feeling inspired by her talk and the energy she gives. She was a class act! Thanks for stopping by!
