What Else We Do
Its time for another round of “Shiz I learned from Pinterest“
this salad is everything….everything I tell you!
why not wrap some old milk bottles with twine and neon rope?? It will add cuteness to just about any old shelf.
I NEED to make this happen in someones home.
I could see this hexagon wall treatment done on a bathroom wall in luei of tiles!!!
Super Duper creative shiz = maj designer brownie points for me!
I need a round window in my life….and so do you.
square windows are just way to “edgy”
HEY, and speaking of things everybody needs…...Pinterest reminded my that I need
I could design a whole house around it
Call me crazy but I actually think in some cases it BRIGHTENS the space..
what say you?
do you follow me on Pinterest?
true story…about 5 months ago I broke my phone. I have been rolling to meetings, conducting business, and taking my daily photos with the most jacked up phone a girl could have..I have been to
lazy busy to get it fixed.
This week I had a revelation, and finally decided that I am a grown ass woman who works damn hard and deserves to have electronic devices that work.
I bought a new iPhone and am snapping away! What a difference a snazzy phone makes
so here is what my new phone has been up to…
My wall got MYFAMB‘ed…
Dudes, this bitch has some serious skills and everyone should get in on it before she is so famous she cuts her ear off..
Then this bag got a dose of #hippiestyle with a little dream-catcher action…the Shoppe is gonna start carrying these little bad boys,
what say you?
THESE BOOTIES are everything, so is my new rug..
The Lewis clan are going away camping today…so the duck tried out the new tent in the yard…
its as big as a hotel and as you can see he was quite happy with his “pitched tent”
Penny wasn’t to sure
and I was reminded at just how stunning their bedroom is!!
I blazed a few trails to try and keep on my fitness regime …and ran in to some Nature Friends/Enemies
a baby rattle snake..
and Wiley Coyote
and here folks was the old iPhone…may she rest in peace
<<<<OH YEAH AND THE COOLEST THING>>>
The Zoe Report talked up the SHOPPE on her site yesterday!
I want a new house.
there are many reasons why, but the one which stands out to me the most is the fact that it is dark…
Like, I need overhead lighting in the middle of the day dark, and that shit just don’t fly with me.
I am thinking about intentionally slipping on a banana peel in a supermarket so I can land myself in a million dollar law suit that affords me a window heavy abode…
south facing preferably.
Folks I am in Texas..
Dallas to be specific.
I am here on internet biz and fortunately get to stay with the beyond lovely Molly and Sally who generously offered up their pad for a couple of us gals to crash in for few nights. Like a true blogger sorority , I will be sharing a bed with Mearse while the lovely Julia shacks up in the other room with Sally..I am sure some silliness will occur so I will be documenting it on Instagram for shits and giggles.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend…I know I will!
The Lewis clan has been outside as much as possible lately.
The weather is STUNNING and I am obsessed with trying to live more of my life outside getting my daily dose of vitamin D and fresh air.
We planted our spring herbs, bought some outdoor furniture and a new outdoor dining table, and we built a Fire-pit!!
Check it out..we still have a TON to do outside but I am making baby steps!
I bought THIS bench on sale and had some striped back cushions made
Then I had some cushions made for these IKEA chairs…cheap and adorable!
We bought an unbrella from Target which was on sale! Woohoo!
I am taking the big ugly redwood planters out and replacing them with pots and succulents….see below
Then the duck and I planted a little herb garden and my fave part about it are the funky mexican style pots from Home Depot!
I also repurposed an old beverage/ice bin for a new planter to grow our Thai Chilis
And then the best thing, the duck built an outdoor fireplace…
which we sit at all the time and get fat eating s’mores galore!
I cant wait to do more landscaping and adding to the firepit area with some funky chairs chairs and gravel….eventually it will look a little something like this!
So, I am hiring!
I have about a minute and a half to get someone on board and slam bam into the thick of things so lets talk about it.
First and foremost, lets get the “REQUIREMENTS” out of the way..
- You must have knowledge of CAD, photo shop, excel, and quick books. If you can use a 3D rendering program that’s a MAJOR bonus or if you can do a good ole fashion hand drawn rendering that’s great also!! You can absolutely be new at these things, but a working knowledge is a requirement.
- You must know how to go into a home, measure accurately and create floor plans for clients.
- You must pay attention to detail and be able to work closely with me be to help manage our work schedules as well as production and vendor schedules.
-You must be friendly, honest, and accountable. I am looking to hire someone to work really closely with me so you need to be drama free and come to work and leave your problems at the door!
- I would love to find someone who wants to get involved with the social media side, as well as helping me out with the blog. Knowledge of instagram, pinterest, and wordpress would be amazing..although not necessary. The more you can do however the more of an asset you will become!
- A Love of design and style as well as an up to date knowledge of whats happening in the design world is a MUST. I am talking blogs, and magazines, as well as being totally up to date on the latest episode of “million dollar decorators” just kidding…kinda. You have to totally be obsessed with design to fit in around here!!
Now lets talk about what in fact you will be doing on a day to day basis!!!
This position will have you working at least 30 – 35 hours for now and the flexibility to work a 50+ hour week sometimes.
You will be working closely with me to help design projects, create mood boards, organize fabrics, SHOP TILL YOU DROP, contact vendors and clients and arrange schedules, create purchase orders, and help maintain the social media.
You must have a reliable car, live in LA, you must be an amazing note taker, and you MUST have a good attitude. I don’t tolerate whining, and I like to surround myself with positive and creative people. No complainers!
In your resume please Include anything that is relevant to YOUR design and style. If you have a blog, send a link. Same with instagram, twitter feed, Pinterest… whatever you want me to see to show me who you are!
If you are currently still enrolled in school you can send me some of your school projects, as long as you feel like they truly define your style and who you want to be as a designer. If you know photoshop (which you need to to qualify for this position) make me a mood board showing me a dream interior… Do something to stand out! Being professional is great, but I am a personable person, so the person I hire must ALSO be personable!
