my recent audition for HGTV!

Hi Everybody!
this is my first attempt at blogging... please be kind as I an challenged when it comes to technology.
I went to see Julie and Julia with my life long friend Erin and it inspired me to share my journey with all of you.
Many of you might not know that I have been auditioning to get on HGTV (or just about any other network as a design host for the last 5 years.
It has been an interesting adventure and I have come really close (but not yet).
My blog will be about my life, My shop (and the things that I make to sell in it) my clients,all of the wonderful creative friends that have been blessed with, my trips to to flea markets and my auditions as I continue to knock on Hollywood's door! It may not be pretty but It will be the real true inside story of one average girl with big dreams!
