I apologize for the lack of posts this last week. It's been a bit hectic around here!
Charlie and I just arrived back home from Fort Lauderdale where I participated in the Elle Decor panel discussion: Redesigning Design, how the internet is reshaping the design industry. Unfortunately Heather Clawson from Habitually Chic, Gaye Tapp from Little Augury, and our moderator Allison Mezzafonte, Executive Editor of Elledecor.com were unable to attend due to the terrible East Coast weather. But Jennifer Bowles of The Peak of Chic, Stefan Hurray of Architect Design, and I enjoyed sharing our experiences with the audience.
Elle Decor's Executive Director of Brand Development, Ellen Rubin did a wonderful job as last minute moderator!
Thank you again to Elle Decor and to everyone who attended the discussion yesterday!
Although we were only in Fort Lauderdale for 24 hours, somehow Charlie convinced me to take him jet skiing! I guess it was the least I could do, given how hard I was squeezing his hand during our bumpy flight.
Meanwhile, back at home....
Since I'm not a big DIY person (bags of screws and nails, and pages of building instructions like the ones pictured below scare me a bit)...
we asked our friend, Mike Duff, to help us assemble the chicken coop. It still needs to be modified a bit and painted, but it should be ready when the chicks are old enough to make the move outside. Oh, if you need a great carpenter, call Mike: 310.844.5676!
