Happy Friday all! We’re getting some great rain here in Austin, Texas. Remember when I talked about “stretching outside your comfort zone” a few posts back? Well, took another leap into pushing the envelope into the Blogging Universe (It really is a world of its own!!) and wrote my first “Guest Blog”: “Pillow Goddess: A day in the life of…”
Was asked by the renown and totally amazing California-based designer Brandon Smith to write a post for his “Designer Inspiration” series on his blog: D. COOP. Got connected with this wonderful guy through Twitter my friends…a designer who speaks his mind with charming (and sassy!) wit (you’ve GOT to read his blog!!):
“The biggest reason I’m a designer? So I can critique (read: make fun of) space and get paid for it. All in all it makes me a nicer person in real life.” Brandon Smith
And who would have ever guessed I’d meet someone who can out talk ME!?! Brandon not only invited me to do a guest blog, but he also picked one of our pillows for his TOP 5 SPRING DESIGN PICKS for the San Diego Premiere mag!! I LOVE Twitter and have met so many wonderful people all over the world, but I feel very lucky to have become friends with late-night owl Brandon Smith of @dcoopsd . What an honor Brandon, thanks so much!!!
So without further ado, here’s a link to my Very 1st Guest Blog. You’ll read all about what truly inspires my designs and see a few pillows from a variety of our collections. I’m still learning and have far to go to keep up with all these fascinating bloggers, but watch for the launch of our Texture Tuesdays starting next week! xoPG
P.S. Made another new fab Twitter friend, Angel Robinson (@writerobinson) with Write Robinson (she brings new meaning to “writing letters” in the 21st century with her handcrafted stationery!). Angel also did an inspirational post a few Wednesdays back so please check out her design process too. And now all of a sudden we find ourselves members in the “D. COOP ALUMNI”….an esteemed group no doubt! That’s what I love about blogging (and Twitter) ….it is SO MUCH FUN and you meet all these wonderful new people who become fast friends. And of course, learn a thing or two about design. Enjoy!
