Blog Book Tour UK: Decorate For a Party

September 6, 2016

Hello everyone! Today is a very special day because it begins a full two week period of reviews for our new book, Decorate For a Party, by bloggers in mainly the UK with the exception of Avenue Lifestyle since she helped us shoot the book! Each day, for the next two weeks, someone will review the book on their blog. Holly Marder, one of the wonderful photographers who helped Leslie and I take photos for the book, kicked off the reviews today on her blog Avenue Lifestyle and we are really pleased and happy by what she’s said because even though this is my 4th book, each book always feels like the first all over again – the anticipation, the shaking knees, the pounding heart… It’s such a rush to see what people think about your projects and ideas once they are out there. Leslie and I really hope that you will enjoy it.

Order Now: December Daily Kit Designed By decor8!

September 1, 2016

I’m so excited to share this project with you! Earlier this year, I was asked to design a kit for December Daily 2016 and, given that I love paper products, I was immediately on board! This kit can be used in conjunction with Ali Edwards’ December Daily 2016 Scrapbooking/Memory/Journaling Binders OR you can order the kit to just own the first ever product with my brand on it, to use on mood boards, to wrap gifts, craft with or anything else you fancy!

Order Now: December Daily Kit Designed By decor8!

Other than my books, I’ve never created an actual product before so this was very exciting and came so naturally for me, which was an exciting thing to find out – seems over a decade of blogging and seeing/touching products has really soaked in because now I feel like the next step is to continue designing products and see where this world of making can take me. I just want to get my hands and heart into something that lives outside of the web – so much of what I do is virtual, so to hold products in my hands is a very exciting experience for me.

Order Now: December Daily Kit Designed By decor8!

The decor8 kit is part of a very limited edition, so if you want one, you have to order it as soon as possible. Kits ship worldwide and cost $19.99.

In the kit you get:
(4) 6×8 Papers

Here is a little unboxing video that I did for you:

The story behind my kit: I love Danish design so the playful, geometric patterns are a direct result of what I see coming out of Scandinavia, and the forest behind my house has inspired the nature motifs. I wanted this kit to be light and bright so that when creatives are designing their pages and laying in their photos, it will be their photos that shine and stand out and the designs of my kit will not compete or outshine the photos but rather, make them look even more beautiful. I also made sure the kit wasn’t overly Christmas-y since their are so many religions and traditions with the holiday season these days that red and green, Santa and the more traditional aesthetic doesn’t fit everyone. Plus, December isn’t only about the holiday itself…. It’s about gathering family, enjoying snowy walks, extra time playing with your children, sipping hot cocoa, baking, and thinking about the year behind and the year ago – it’s a time of reflection, family and love. I selected the words – sparkle, smile, shine, love, twinkle – with my two-year-old son in mind because he has given me such a fresh view of the world through his curious eyes.

Thank you all so much for your support, love and good energy – I am so proud of this kit, I’ve had a really hard year and to do something with paper and make a pretty grouping of things that can support you and your creativity makes me so so SO happy. And thank you Ali for having me!!!!

For this coming Fall/Winter 2016, I’m seeing so many gorgeous deep colors mixed with brass and copper. Lots of green ranging from emerald to sage and mint. Color on the walls is also back (vs. stark white). You can see some of the trends on the rise in the newest collection of TineKHome which I’m about to present to you for the first time. These are just fantastic views of what you can expect from Scandinavia this year – I’m seeing velvet, glass, brass/gold, copper, loads of texture and glamour!

Join Me at Meet The Blogger in Amsterdam!

August 22, 2016

Two great things to share today… First, Meet The Blogger! Next, I feel so good if I just say the word… Suit, Suit, Suitcase! Yes I’m a dork, I know… But I have a lot of travel coming up, including Amsterdam on October 1 for MTB, and I needed luggage so SuitSuit Fabulous Fifties collection in MINT arrived and totally saved the day. Best part… I’ll never miss them on the conveyer belt at the airport because they really stand out. And there are three in the collection so I scooped the smallest one up for my little boy so he can travel with a matching bag to mama. At least we’ll see how long that lasts until he wants his own with cars and trucks on it. :)

Join Me at Meet The Blogger in Amsterdam!

I have so many nice places to visit this Autumn and Winter, and I may be getting back to America, so I’m really looking forward to being on the road seeing nice people and dear friends to give lectures, sign books and just hang out with cool people that inspire me. I love work travel, it hardly feels like work, so I consider myself very lucky in this regard.

So… Are you going to MEET THE BLOGGER in Amsterdam on October 1? Please do! I haven’t been at an event in years – the last was in London in 2012, so this is a big scary step for me to get back out there into the world of blog conferences, speaking engagements and book events. I’m very excited but definitely have shaky knees. I took time off during my pregnancy and the first few years of being a new mom so I could really stay home with him, write books (I finished two since I was pregnant) and focus on re-launching Blogging Your Way and other business-related goals.  I’m glad I did, but now I’m eager to go back out there and meet bloggers and creatives again, see what has changed since I took a leave of absense from it all, and most importantly, to connect and inspire as well as be inspired.

On Saturday, October 1st I will be at Meet The Blogger giving the keynote at 10:15 am – a 45 minute discussion to include q+a about creating content – photography and words – for social media and publications from the heart and with passion and courage. I have A LOT to share that I’ve learned in my 10 years of having a career as a blogger and writer, and I promise it will be a discussion like no other because I plan to share my failings and successes and most importantly, help everyone attending to walk away with a lot more than they entered the room with! It’s going to be a very intimate discussion, that is my goal at least, so I do hope you will be there.

To get your ticket to MEET THE BLOGGER please sign up here for Saturday which includes my presentation along with a bunch of other speakers and workshops. Tickets are nearly sold out to act fast. You have to join us!
