For some of us decorating doesn’t come easily. Ever wonder what happens behind the scenes of each of my big or small before & after posts? A whole lot of re-arranging, re-painting, re-organizing, and re-evaluating. Sometimes years worth of re-everything! I don’t know what it is, I know when I love something, and spend lots of time swooning over Pinterest perfect spaces, but executing it in my own home is a whole other story! I just don’t have the decorating touch that comes quite as naturally as some; I have to work at it.

I experienced 10 years of dissatisfaction and embarrassment that I had to welcome people into my imperfect collegiate like home.

This often leads to me feeling dissatisfied with my home as it is… In fact, I experienced 10 years of dissatisfaction and embarrassment that I had to welcome people into my imperfect collegiate like home. It took the last two years to realize that it isn’t what you do or don’t have right away, or how putting lots of money into it, or even trying to make it look like exactly like that Pinterest pin. Rather it is the time spent lovingly working out a space that functions well for you, is comfortable and homey, and has things YOU love, not a magazine editor.


My dear friend Kathy of Up To Date Interiors, who is also a member of my Creative Team, just released a helpful e-book called Love Your Space, and not a moment too soon! I brought her onboard in the first place because she has that touch -that skill- I mentioned that doesn’t come too easily to me. It has been such an inspiration to learn from her and her book on how to mold my house to become something I love. It always amazes me how she can take every day items and put them together in a way that is pure magic! I adore every inch of her house, and I know she has a small budget like I do, which means I can do it too…with the right help and prompting of course.


Her e-book has practical tips, doable challenges, and I’m so pleased to share it with you guys. When she asked if I wanted to help her launch it, and be an affiliate, I can’t lie -I jumped at the chance to have first dibs on the book! lol!

Ready to create a space you love in 30 days? In this ebook, you will find budget friendly tips for decorating and styling, step by step instructions for unique DIYs, and organizational tips and tricks for each room in your home.
