The last month, I have pushed myself to a limit that I didn’t know I possessed.  I have dug deep.  Worked hard.  Plumbed to new depth of professional and personal growth.  It is emotionally gratifying to see that my work is officially paying off, that people I admire see me as a peer and clients […]

I am so excited to have partnered up with Handcraft Studio School to teach an interior styling course called “It’s All In the Details“.  Leading a course on this topic has been something I have mulled over the last year or so simply because so many of my clients have asked for this specific type […]

Over the last few weeks I have had some tough choices to make professionally and personally.  This blog is no stranger when it comes to talking growth and the discomfort that normally accompanies such transformations.  However, last week added a new dimension to the puzzle that I call my life.  I was faced with a […]

The last few weeks have found my scrambling for time.  I have been snatching minutes from everywhere I can to get work done.  Sadly this has meant some less than stellar lunch and dinner choices on my part.  I am still ashamed that I had cereal for an entire day while working on a deadline. […]
