coffee + cre8tive {june 21 ’06}


I love blogging. It’s become quite an obsession for me. I’m always thinking about what I’ll write about next, what inspires me that will interest you, what lies ahead. It’s exciting to think about. I also stop every now and then and think about how blogging wouldn’t be nearly as exciting if I didn’t have all of you. That sounds amazingly cheesy (hallmark cardish), I know, but I appreciate each one of the readers I’ve met either via email or in person because of decor8. Your emails and submissions keep me going full steam ahead, I can’t believe how many talented and creative people are reading – designers, artists, editors, celebs, shop owners, and working professionals who take a ‘break’ here each day during lunch…

Meeting all of you here daily stirs my own creativity in ways I’d never imagined. Before decor8, I only had my look books for pasting ideas into, or journals to fill thoughts on what I found to be interesting. To set free all of my ideas and inspirations here, daily, before an audience – totally liberating. I had no idea that so many would share my interests and were into so many of the same things, people, places, that I cherish. Thank you for giving me so much joy and for reading decor8.

I came across this quote in a magazine recently that sums up everything I’m feeling so nicely.

“The best moments in reading are when you come across something – a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things – which you had thought unique and particular to you. Now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met… And it is as if a hand has come out and taken yours.”
– Alan Bennett
