Welcome - Come Right On In

Welcome to my new blog, which I am creating to accompany my new adventure in business.  My new business is named Simply Your Decor.  My desire is to bring you along on my journey and share some tips along the way.

I am what the professionals would label, "self-trained".  I began filling my decorating portfolio in the early 80's, so yes, I am not new on the scene, nor am a "young thing."  My portfolio grew through the years including some interesting projects.  One job required curtains and pillows for a private family was rewarded with a private flight around our city.  Another decorating venture was the  transformation of a movie theater to become the new residence of a church.  During that renovation we home-educated in the car, allowing me to coin the phrase "multi-tasking mom" years before everyone asked if you could "multi-task".  Throughout those side-tracked adventures I was graced with entering many homes to decorate and bring the owner's vision of their home to pass.

So I begin this journey again with new excitement, which can be expressed through the internet and all the modern day resources it provides.  I would be delighted for you to  follow along as I reveal my own secrets of might not find them in a class book, but that is the fun of being creative.

I plan to also go back into the archives to share past stories of decorating....I am a story teller at heart and to not include them just wouldn't be me.  If that bores you, then you know what to do...look at the pictures and move on.

Please feel welcome to ask questions....add what you have other words, let's share the world of decorating while I put on my fancy shoes and head out the door to an appointment.  I have heard these years of my life can be the most rewarding!!!!
