I’m so glad you have stopped by. Please grab a chair and get comfy!
I have been toying with the idea of creating a blog for a very long time now. I have pinned and studied up on blogging hints, tips, why’s, how’s, do’s and don’ts… for long enough. I have finally decided to dive in. Splash! Please be patient with me, I’m new to this. I will need water wings for a bit until I get my sea legs. Promise to hang in there with me? Maybe call the lifeguard if I need help?
If you go to my Pinterest account, http://www.pinterest.com/sharileep/, you can see just how much I love everything decorating. I’m no computer specialist, but I must admit that I rock at Pinterest. Seriously. Rock…at Pinterest. But really, who doesn’t rock at Pinterest. How genius is Pinterest? I used to love decorating magazines. I subscribed to them. My mother-in-law gave me hers after she finished reading them. I would look for them at thrift stores and garage sales. To be honest, I didn’t necessarily read those magazines. I would (very quickly) scan through them, tear out pages that I liked and then file them away in my very organized files. Come to think of it, it was kind of a precursor to my Pinterest addiction. Pinterest is so much easier. And less messy. And cheaper. And less time consuming. OK, maybe not less time consuming, but so much more fun.
Seriously, did you go to my Pinterest account? I’ll wait.
So, back to my blog. What is my grand plan for it? Well, I have a couple of plans to be honest. First, to document my own projects, makeovers, before and afters, accomplishments, you know the drill. But, and this is a big but, (I like big buts and I cannot lie) I want my (eventual) readers to be my helpers. My own personal decorator…helper….friends. The other day, I was thinking over a decorating dilemma in my home and thought to myself how awesome it would be to be able to take a picture of this dilemma, post it online and have decorators give me ideas of how to remedy it. I thought of all of the armchair (like me!) decorators out there and thought that we can all help each other. Eventually, (hopefully soon- remember my sea legs), I want my readers to be able to post pics of their decorating dilemmas, their “it needs something more’s”, their “look what I did’s!”. I would like to think of this blog as being one big living room with a bazillion comfy chairs and us all helping each other out. Wanna come?
