Have a nice weekend peeps! I’m signing off but want to wish you a happy weekend but with a bit of a warning: watch out for the Easter candy hitting stores right now. Gracious! Aqua M&Ms, peeps in all shades, lovely packaging, I could not believe my eyes in the grocery store last night. I was equally shocked when these little guys hopped into my cart (I didn’t place them there, oh no!). I figured they were lonely looking for a friend so I brought them home. My home. Now I feel like eating them because that is what we do to candy, but I don’t think that would be hospitable of me because you see, they don’t believe they are candy but actual birds. I feel bad telling them, I mean just look at the faces… it’s hard to resist the temptation but also hard to give in because they are so cute and well mannered. Hmmm. I clearly have a stressful life with very tough decisions to make.
I’ll see you around this way again on Monday. Not sure the peeps will, though. I just ate one while typing this. Tweet!

It’s Friday, time to prepare for the weekend and hope for Spring with fresh images from the inspiration folders of Amy Butler Design. I haven’t talked about Amy in over three months so I needed a little of her sparkle and beauty on my site today. I’m so fond of her design work and home in Ohio, but I also follow her husband and business partner David because in my opinion his photos of Amy’s products radiant joy and life. When I look at his recent batch of photos (below), I imagine a charming country lifestyle… a sweet friend winks at you from the porch, asks that join in on a game of cards and whether or not you’d like one lemon slice in your tea or two.
I love single flowers in candle holders, I do the exact same thing with mine too. Just add a few tablespoons of water and your buds will stay beautiful!

It’s official! I’ve decided to follow the lead of my current teacher Susannah Conway and become a bit of a teacher myself. I’m going to start with an e-course in April all about blogging! This fun workshop will cover topics such as: building a presence online through your blog (good for anyone who is a writer, crafter, designer, etc.), how to attract readers, a blog ad how-to guide, photo copyrights, how to make your images look great, blog template ideas, how to write from your heart, and creative ideas when it comes to networking online, organizing your inbox, topic ideas, dealing with negativity, and overcoming writer’s block.
If this interests you please email me (holly AT decor8blog.com) with exact details of what you’d like to get out of the class so that I can potentially work your suggestions into the course materials. The course will also include some videos from me to you, too!
Enrollment will begin March 15th so stay tuned! TIP: You can get on my list to receive pre-registration details before I post enrollment on decor8 since the class will be limited to around 150 students, first come, first serve. Getting on the list will give you a chance to enroll 2 days prior to my official post on decor8.
Yay! I can’t believe I’m about to do this — I can’t wait!
