New Contributor at Cookie Magazine

I have some exciting news to share today! I’m pleased to announce that I’m now a contributor at Cookie magazine (online). I’m quite excited because I wasn’t sure what to do when Domino folded so the timing is perfect. It’s funny to think that the same girl who wrote a Cookie mag review 3 years ago is now writing for them. I’ve been a fan of their publication from the start so I’m happy to be part of their crew.

I’ll be contributing to Nesting and producing a monthly Home Tour in their Home Decorating section. I feel that now I can give in fully to my obsession with all things cute and share kid’s rooms and products on a regular basis. Yay!

I guess this means only one thing for you… If you have children and you’d love to show parts of your home at Cookie please contact me for a possible feature: holly AT decor8blog.com. To get a feel for what their home tours look like please visit this link.

    That’s great news. One of my favorite bloggers on another of my favorite blogs! I can’t quite remember that saying about one door closing to have another door open. Something my dad would always say to me when a job or something didn’t quite work out for me. And he was always right. Congrats!

    What great news! I love that mag and can’t wait to see what you write! I’ve got 2 little girls (5 1/2 and 2 1/2) and they just started sharing a room. Their space is just the best place to be in the house.

    Ah the many twists of fate!! I love that you reviewed them and are now one of their writers!! How great is that! I have been a subscriber to Cookie since they launched and I look forward to getting it every month. I’m getting ready to do my 2 year old’s “big girl room,” so your timing really couldn’t be better! I think that will be a great outlet for you!! Congratulations on the new gig!!

    Congratulations =). A new reader of your site which at first was to help me with ideas for decorating my new apartment, but now I realize how much your tiny bits of inspiration brings me relief.

    Thank you for being a connector for my creativity.
