Since this One Room Challenge started I have traveled every single week. I truly put the challenge in challenge this go around. I have been on Blogtour Milan with Modenus to Milan and Venice. We headed to Linville, NC. For Easter, I went to Dallas for the Rewardstyle Conference. I turned around and headed to Charleston for a fun 4 days with The Southern C Summit. Today, I am en route to Los Angeles for Legends of LA Cienega and Design Trust meetings. I am beyond grateful for all these fabulous opportunities but I have hit a wall. I am ready for a little R & R soon. I could crawl up in Bo’s bed and sleep for days on end.
Anyway, Bo LOVES his room and has parted with his bunks well. Unfortunately he got a nose bleed in the night before I photographed. Yep, all over the Euro sham….that is hidden under the Rolling Stones pillow. It is always something. On another fun note I realized last Friday I forgot to get a dust ruffle. I ordered this polyester beauty overnight on Amazon, It does the trick. Who knows I may keep it considering the fab Jill Sorenson Bang Bang Bedding was trashed in a few days.
On to the photography shenanigans. I am not sure what I am doing wrong but interior photography is HARD, really HARD. I have a nice camera but everything is grainy and yuck. I switched back to my trusty iphone after many failed attempts. I did not allow enough time to hire a photographer, AGAIN. Will I ever learn? I hope I get the challenge again to prove I can plan ahead.
Cons of the project:
Forgot the Dustruffle
Never Hired a Photographer
Never ordered the desk glass for an under glass scrapbook / collage
Pros of the project:
Bo loves it and I got to meet and watch so many other talents transform their species.
