I had a very busy and exciting week. Last Monday, I was notified I had been selected as one of the 15 Finalists in the High Point Market 9th Style Spotter Competition. This is a huge honor. I am thrilled and a bit overwhelmed as I am not a particularly competitive person, especially in athletic situations. I was and am highly uncoordinated. Hence the bruises all over me at most times. But style, I got that. Having been the kid picked last for the gym team I feel like I can possibly redeem myself through this.
Shopping is my sport and I must say I am quite adept at it. Style spotting is the sport I have been missing all the years. I believe that I could be the captain of this team.
But, along with me, 14 other would be masters of style happen to also be involved, so I desperately need all of my loyal readers, friends, family and everyone to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. I could also use the six degrees of separation effect where possible. Not trying to turn this into a Tupperware Party, but referrals are appreciated, I am sure you get my gist.
During the last week, I put together Olioboards using only the products from Spring 2012 High Point Market that have been pre-selected. I can do as many as I want but, the single board with the most votes wins the position. I am considering sticking with simple and will probably only post a board or two. I created several boards that are colorful and succinct, but they are reflective of my style and I plan to edit down from that group.
Here are the other finalists…A very creative and artistic bunch:
Jennifer Reynolds Interiors
Tamara Matthews Stevenson, NestNestNest
Joni Vanderslice, J. Banks Design
Kara Legato Interior Design
Christy Davis, A Modern Housewife
Carmen Christenson, A Modern Housewife

I will let you all know when it is time to vote. I am counting on my peeps!
