A year ago, I sat at the peninsula in our kitchen and decided that I was going to go for it. I was going to achieve my dream of becoming an Interior Decorator. I studied, I pushed myself, I worked hard. Then other opportunities came up (amazing ones) that made me super happy, so I thought, perhaps Interior Decorating wasn't the answer and that blogging was. It would be the best of both worlds! So I blogged about interior decorating, fashion, entertaining. I loved it! And truthfully, I still love it!
But here I am, and I've been thinking/sitting on this for a while now......the dream of being an Interior Decorator is still strong. Every now and then it hits me really hard, but then the feeling goes away and I continue on. This time, I just.can't.shake.it. So what I'm left with, is figuring out the puzzle, I suppose. I love blogging, I truly do, so I don't want to quit it, at all and what I know for sure is that I wouldn't be where I am if it wasn't for blogging! Blogging has opened doors for me and so many opportunities have come from blogging. But I want a little more interior decorating in my life and so my goal is to figure out the best way to combine the two, that makes me feel fulfilled.
There are a few rooms in our house that need some jazzing up. It's time to get back on track. I'm going to get to working on them and of course, to share them with you. But I also need a plan, otherwise, I will find myself sitting here, in the same spot in a years time, typing about the same thing. Sometimes it really helps to put your dreams out there, then you're held somewhat accountable, right?! lol
So in a blog post, that explains the absence. I had said earlier this year that by doing less, I will be accomplishing more. As a blogger, you are often approached with several amazing opportunities and it can be so hard to say no. But sometimes, saying yes, is in fact so far from the right answer.
I want to inspire you when it comes to decorating your home and I also want to inspire you when it comes to fashion. That's what Elliven Studio is all about. I just need to stay focused and remember why I started.
Have a lovely day, friends!
