The Confidential Print Shop05.16.18
At long last I am super excited to annouce Confidential Print Shop is open for business and printable art is first on the menu. I have actually had the shop set up for months, but I was feeling extremely anxious about hitting the publish button on this post. I’m not entirely sure why, but it most likely stems from a fear of failure. Truth be told, setting up a storefront and selling something that is uniquely yours and not made by someone else, is terrifying. Because what if no one cares? What if everyone hates it and never buys a single thing? Does that mean they don’t like you or your work? Is it a reflection of how the public perceives your taste level? As a design professional, this is a monumentally difficult hurdle to jump because the answer is probably yes. Read More

Blonde Birch Farm: Floors, Doors and Finishes Galore03.24.18
We closed on our house in early December, but we didn’t move in till the end of January. Truthfully, we are still moving in, even though we have officially been living here for a month and a half. Before we bought the house, the sellers had replaced the carpet downstairs in the family room, but the carpeting on the stairs and throughout the upstairs bedrooms, was absolutely trashed. When I say trashed… I literally mean we needed to entirely replace the flooring upstairs before we could or would actually move our stuff in. Read More

A Gathering in Indy with Delta12.04.17
A couple of months ago I had the great pleasure of heading out to Indy with Delta Faucet. While you may not instantly think a trip about faucets would be a great pleasure, I can tell you wholeheartedly it was. I have been on a many, many trips with brands in the past, but this particular event was extra special, not only because of the brand but certainly because of the small but amazing group of bloggers and designers I had the good fortune to be surrounded by.
