Follow @HomeGoods LIVE tonight from 8-9PM EST to join the pin party! Get inspired by #DIY ideas, #entertaining tips, and #organizing tricks! Three of our expert bloggers will be joining in on the fun, @Lynda | Focal Point Styling, @Dear Lillie , and @DIY Playbook!
HomeGoods asked three of their Happy by Design board pinners to host this evenings pin-party, which has had a few changes happen along the way - but that's to be expected when you're trying to launch something new and for the first time. I'm thrilled to be a part of the trio, including bloggers Dear Lillie and The DIY Playbook.
Since I came back from market week and camp, I've been trying to catch up - with what is happening online, in design, and locally - along with spending time with the hubs, who will be heading into spinal surgery next week - and keep up tabs with my mom (who is back in Florida) who has had a few injuries lately she is dealing with - and quite frankly it flat out sucks being located so far away because I want to be there to help her, but I can't. Not to mention, yesterday was my birthday, but I don't think I fully enjoyed it because too many things weighing on my mind (and not enough coffee!! lol)...
Grateful for it all but still need MORE coffee!!
One of the discussions a group of us had last week at Design Camp was working on our own vs. working in the corporate world. While most in the group preferred working on their own, I was the one in the group that prefers working corporate. When asked why, I responded, "... Because of exactly what is happening right now - overwhelmed. In corp - you have teams of people to delegate tasks to (equaling multitasking) to get shit done. VS when you're on your own, you have choices to make as to where your time & energy shift to - and they aren't always the right choice. For example, something you 'thought' you could knock out in a day or less turns out to be ongoing, draining and eating into time to spend towards other projects / commitments (and then feeling bad because you're letting down other people) - or worse: causes stress from being rushed, which leads to mistakes." I'm NOT saying that corp world is perfect by any means, but personally, I feel I work better in that environment. And on that note... I must skedaddle off to another task before I drop another ball...
Life should be this easy!
I will be posting more in depth coverage plus recaps of Las Vegas Market Week and Design Camp shortly - just bear with me as I pull it together, plus I'll be sharing some local happenings + a small space decor tips post I staged (realistically speaking for first apartments!!) along the way...
I did manage to get thank you's written and mailed - plus pack & ship two gifts out! Yay!
In the meantime, remember to join me at the HomeGoods PinParty, Thursday - August 7! And visit me on my social connections, where it's sometimes easier and quicker to share what's new!!
and now thanks to Design Camp - Instagram!!
Thanks for stopping by!
