You know the whole, “It’s not you, it’s me?” line? That’s what I finally had to say when retiring my original website. I loved it so. It was a beautiful site that served us well our first 5 years, for which I am forever grateful. (Pictured below with my first website. Thanks for being you and being with me from the start. Sorry/not sorry you had to go. PS: Thanks Reid Riggan for the photo.)
But during those formative years, I changed, my company grew, technology evolved, and so on. As such, we outgrew it, and it was time to part ways and create something new.
After a few years of dreaming and searching locally and nationally for the right web designer – the clouds parted and affirmative sun rays burst through the day I found Doodle Dog Creative in Austin, TX. It was love at first “site”. (Ha!! No but for real.) Nikki and her team were wonderful at understanding my brand, needs, and vision for the project and did a knock-out job designing and creating this dreamy new site you’ve found yourself in!
You can read more about the design process on their blog here!
There’s lots and lots more I could tell you about all of the intention behind this site, but I’m sure I’ll share more of that down the road. Today, I just want to invite you in with a big warm virtual hug and say, “Welcome!!” I hope you stay awhile and flip through the pages that have been so thoughtfully and creatively laid before you. I hope you learn something new about us (Production Design finally has a home within the site – hey hey!) and soak up some new inspiration.
To celebrate this few-in-a-lifetime occasion, I am hostessing my first ever giveaway! That’s right. History in the making right here, folks. Step right up and behold the pretties that could be yours…
1st Prize: Pair of Pink Custom Pillows – originally created for the Symphony Designer House XXIII, these pretty in pink pillow covers made from a Thibaut fabric are filled with the fluffiest down feather inserts that are extra fun to “chop” (pillow styling technique).
Other 1st Prize: Pair of Paris Original Photography Prints – shot by yours truly whilst wandering around The City of Light, these are just two of a few 11″ x 17″ 1st edition prints, which will someday soon be available for purchase!
Two first prizes though?! Well that’s because firstly – you’re all winners in my eyes (awww…) – but mostly, because I polled my lovely Insta fam a few weeks ago on which of the above prizes I should give away. (Another great reason to connect with me on Instagram – you get to help weigh in on vital decisions such as these.) Upon seeing the results, I decided to give away both! The first winner drawn will get their pick of which prize, then a second winner will be drawn for whichever prize is still available. Win win, right? (Actually, yeah, that’s exactly what’s going to happen! )
To enter the giveaway, simply join the E-Party through the below form, then be sure to click the confirmation link that will be emailed to you shortly after. Then voila – you’re entered!
(PS: If you’re already at the E-Party, no worries! You can still be entered in the drawing by – that’s right, signing up through the below form, too! (It was created just for this giveaway, so your email/entry will show up here, but it won’t duplicate on the E-Party list! Because that would be weird to have two of yourself at the same party… ))
(PPS! If for any reason the below entry form doesn’t cooperate with your device, you can also find it by clicking here!)
Are you entered? YAY! Then stay tuned to your inbox, because our two lucky winners will be notified via email, then announced on this here new site we’re celebrating!
I am so so glad I’ll see you at the E-Party now, too! I lovingly refer to my email list as the “E-Party” because I think it’s much more party-like than list-like to keep in touch with a bunch of awesome friends like you, hanging out on the interwebs together, sharing inspiration, ideas, and making our homes happier together. Right?
The giveaway will be open through Sunday night April 15th 2018, at 10pm CST! If you’re not afraid of a little competition, feel free to share this post with someone you think might want a chance to win some new spring decor, too! 😉
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Thanks again for being here today to celebrate with us!!
