Exciting News!




I have been formally asked to submit more materials to the HGTV Design Star competition!
The next step is an audition in Hollywood, so this is an important round. Hopefully I'll have more exciting news to share in January. :-)

The show tapes for six weeks, sometime between the dates of February 26th and April 30th. I can't imagine not being able to blog for 6 weeks- but wouldn't it be amazing!?

I'll keep ya posted, and THANK YOU so much for all your support. I reeeeeally appreciate it!
