{new cubbies in my office studio...  "studio" sounds so much better, doesn't it?}


Just enjoying the last spec of the loooong snow-filled weekend before bed. Last week was such a nutty week that I totally forgot to post that I was a guest blogger/ designer over at Room Remix! PK's going a great series on paint with some of my favorite blog friends so check it out if you have a minute:

ROOM REMIX PAINT SERIES

Many of you asked about the driftwood hanging above the cubbies.  My dad found it 20 or so years ago while fishing in Georgia.  It's a cypress tree root.  There used to be bass mounted on it but he gave it to me  so they're gone :)  It used to be in the shape of a star but a piece of it fell off over the years.  He's wants me to reattach it but then I wouldn't have room for my cubbies!

Also, you might have noticed a few changes around here. My blog's been getting a few tweaks including a some new buttons on the sidebar. I haven't linked everything up yet but as soon as I do, I'll be sure to give you a little tour.

Is anyone going to the design bloggers' conference in LA? I'm all signed up so let me know if you're in!

And... I find out tomorrow yes or no for the design house. Am so nervous and can't wait for the pit in my stomach to leave. ( it has to go away whether we get it or not, right?? ;). I might be in need of virtual hugs so I'll keep you posted. Finger crossed.


xoxo, Lauren

A big virtual hug. You are destined for great things. It will just be an issue of timing.

It is so hard waiting by the phone (I don't miss that feeling from my single years!). I'm in waiting mode on something and half of it is wondering what you will do if you no longer have that *possibility* out there. But if not this time, it's only because it wasn't meant to be right now.I have a good feeling that you will be selected. Thanks for letting us share the suspense. Fingers crossed for you...

Ooooohhh, I am excited to hear the good news! I love the new sidebar buttons, too, Lauren. Awesome! And now I am pouting even MORE that I'm not going to the design bloggers conference.

Hi Lauren, your new "STUDIO" looks so cute and organized...you reminded me that I MUST fix my office/studio/crafts room pronto!!..It's been a mess ever since my guests left from xmas vacation...lol
I hope you hear good news soon!, I think waiting is sometimes worse than hearing bad news, but don't worry, great news are coming your way, so worrying will be the worst part, until then, decorate some more , or maybe stop by my new lil' blog.

I bought at sign to hang on my office door that reads "L'atelier" - and it does feel so much better than office I understand about "studio" - a word can change what happens in the room!

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Sending good luck vibes your way! I love the studio by the way (yes, studio sounds better and more creative-minded) and that driftwood is AWESOME! Love that it used to have bass attached to it! LOL...that would be something my hubbs would love. (c:
