I have to share some good news with you. Yesterday a Globe Correspondent contacted me to schedule a meet up to discuss decor8. So tomorrow I’ll be taking her for a spin around Boston to some of my favorite shops and then we’ll sit down for the actual interview. The article will appear sometime this month in the Boston Globe, and best part — it will be primarily about design blogging, one of my favorite topics. The article should go live later this month. I’m so nervous!
Also, if you have the new issue of the Jan/Feb Blueprint magazine (it will be around until March), I’m on page 61 in the box titled, “Photo Finesse”, part of Image Control, a piece written by Tom Samiljan. I give Blueprint readers some tips on photo displays, and although my mega list of tips didn’t make the cut, I was happy to see that they included Photojojo and a book I’ve suggested here on decor8 before, Photocraft: Cool Things to Do with the Pictures You Love by Caroline Herter, Laurie Frankel and Laura Lovett. They also were nice enough to put the link to decor8 directly in the paragraph so thank you Blueprint, especially Tom, for contacting me for this piece. I can’t believe this is their final issue…

I want to thank Mike at la Fraise for contacting me for an interview. laFraise.com is Europe?s largest t-shirt design competition, with 3-4 designs selected to be sold on the site each week from the over 700 submissions they receive! la Fraise only does a limited run of 500 per design, and they don’t reprint them, so if you see something you like, scoop it up ASAP! Each winning designer gets 1,000- Euros, so if you are interested in getting involved, visit their website and learn what it’s all about.
la Fraise is having a girly week, so they’ve contacted a few girls in the design community for an interview. I think I’m the only American! The interview is in German, but on their Norwegian website, only the intro is in Norwegian — the rest is in English, so you can read it there.
Heute geht’s ?ber den Teich! Genauer, nach Boston, USA. Hier ist Holly Becker zu Hause. Und was macht sie so interessant f?r uns? Nun, schaut einfach mal auf Ihren Blog - decor8! Eine riesiges Sammelsorium von Infos aus den Bereichen Innenarchitktur, Dekoration, Lifestyle, Architektur, Mode etc.. Und alles hat einen seehr femininen Touch. So ist es auch kein Wunder, das decor8 im Laufe der letzten 14 Monate zu einer Topadresse f?r Frauen (und M?nner) aus aller Welt wurde. Heute wollen wir der guten Holly etwas auf den Zahn f?hlen. Viel Spa? mit dem Interview!
Mike: Hey Holly! Vorab nochmal alles Gute zu Deinem Geburtstag (gestern)!
Holly: Hi Mike! Vielen Dank! :)
Mike: Wie ist das Wetter in Boston, h?lt der Fr?hling bei Euch schon Einzug?
Holly: Ja, wir hatten vor ein paar Tagen 20?C, danach hatten wir einen riesigen Schneesturm. Entsprechend scheint der Fr?hling noch ganz weit weg, wenn ich aus dem Fenster schaue.
Thanks again to Mike and la Fraise! Vielen Dank!
I’ll be back this weekend to blog a little, I have a few things to mention that I ran out of time to post about today… If you’re here because you read my interview over at Design Sessions, welcome! I hope you have fun and find a few things that you enjoy here on decor8. Thanks Anjula for the wonderful chance to be introduced to your massive online community. It really makes me happy to be a part of all you have going on there in NYC.
Oh, and please don’t miss all the new links over on my blogroll in the left column (look for the *). Everyone there is special to me — together we form an amazing online community of creative, talented people that have a real sense of purpose in life and a love for what it is that we do. I think it’s so important to support eachother – so enjoy all the new adds over there. Also, don’t miss the new blog and book of the week that I posted (also to your left). That Tricia Guild book is only $13 and is a feast for the eyes – every single page is full color, to die for, gorgeousness.
So I’m signing off for now. Have a nice night. Sweet dreams. See you tomorrow. And thank you again, Anjula.
