Bloesem Kids Feature! that's us!!!!

I'm so thrilled to share the news that I've been keeping just a little bit quiet for the past week. I have been featured on Bloesem Kids!

Bloesem is well-known in the online world. It's a gorgeous blog-style website dedicated to crafts, art and interior design for grown-ups. Bloesem Kids is an extension of that and as the name suggests its focus is on style and design for children.

I was invited to be interviewed by Brittni Woods, a guest author for Bloesem Kids. We met via my papernstitch exhibition (the website which Brittni runs!). She reviewed my work and I guess in the course of doing that she got a glimpse of our home.

It's always been a dream of mine to be featured in a glossy magazine. At one point I was very interested in Interior Decorating but I never pursued it. Still I do read a lot of "Home & Garden" type magazines and blogs. I like to think our home is tastefully decorated. Of course there is always more to do but it comes back to the old problem of time and money.

I hope you enjoy reading the interview and seeing some of my favorite spots in my home. It goes without saying that if you're ever in the neighborhood I will make a special effort to bake the cake of the day in honor of your visit.

We only stock Mee a Bee bags in this house!

Furniture is all a mismatched collection of pieces from Ikea, Nitori, Muji, some things brought over from New Zealand. Nothing designer or noteworthy but I do love it all.

Thanks again Brittni and Irene for this opportunity.

And to Biggie and Little Guy for helping me clean up and agreeing to appear in the photos, thank you! (Little Guy wants there to be theme music as you view, he loves youtube).
