Much Ado About Nothing


I had my heart set on a particular feature this week, but I can’t find the key image.  And although I

have 30 or so folders containing potential posts stocked away in my computer, I’m just not feeling

it for any of them right now.  The truth for lifestyle bloggers is that we do feel the need to deliver

something meaningful and beautiful and somewhat original to our audience.  And as a practicing

designer with my own firm, I feel a particular obligation to perform.  Excellence in design is my

professional pursuit – churning out or championing mediocrity does not hold particular appeal. 

So with that in mind, I offer you a list of some of my favorite resources to provide you with the

 inspiration that so clearly escapes me this week.  Hopefully I’ll be back on my game next week.


… And I’ll have found that !@%$#% picture!

  1. My pleasure Christine! Your response just made my day and it led one of your fans – Jacquelyn of lark + linen – to me which is always fun.

  2. Oh my goodness, I think I just died and went to heaven. I am a huge fan of yours (actually mentioned you as one of my favourite designers in a guest post I have going live soon;) and feel so honoured to be in such fabulous company. Thank you!! xo

  3. We all feel inspired and uninspired at times. But just seeing stunning images like the third one makes me dream of another life in another house in another country!
