You Just Never Know

4.14.2013

When I started this blog it was just for a creative outlet and my oh my I never expected so many great things to come out of it. To be featured in any publication is such an honor and I am still pinching myself over the things that have come my way by way of this blog.



I am thrilled to have the blog featured in the May issue of Romantic Homes. I was contacted a few months ago by Beth Livesay to see if I would send in some photos for them to use for this issue. I was over the moon excited to see a full page of them used. Thank you, Beth and Romantic Homes. So glad to be included with other bloggers I know such as Kelly of Eclectically Vintage and Des of Peeking thru the Sunflowers.

This morning I was looking at the latest Houzz newsletter in my email and there was Bailey's cute little face looking at me in a feature about dogs.They used one of the photos from the recent houzz tour of our home. Of course she may be getting the big head with all this publicity. I hope she doesn't start demanding things.


You just never know what opportunities will come from this blogging venture.

Have a super week! 
Oh, and I cleaned the garage today.

  65. Awesome, Kim! Congratulations! I remember when I had my first painting in the State Museum. I got a call from our state senator's wife asking if they could borrow the painting for the senator's office for a year. The senator also had an artist's reception and it was the night before the senate voted for Nafta. The reception was loaded with senator's and congressmen wanting to change our senator's mind (he was voting against). Our local paper even sent a reporter to Washington D.C. for the event!!! It was great!

Again, congratulations, you deserve this honor.........

  75. Well I tell 'ya... my magazine consumption has gone up with blogging. Every time I find out a blogger is featured in one I don't subscribe too, I pick it up at the store so as I read at night I can hit my husband as he sleeps and say "I know her!".

  94. Hi Kim, congratulations on the Romantic Homes feature, that is very exciting!

    I actually have a big favour to ask you :)

    I was blown away when Beth contacted me a little while ago too :) I believe that she may use some photos of my painted furniture in the June edition of the magazine, but I have no way of knowing because as far as I know, Romantic Homes magazine isn't available to purchase anywhere near where I live :(

    If it is a magazine you buy regularly, would you mind letting me know if you spot any mention of me in there?

    thanks alot :)
    xx Karen
