It is hard to believe it has been 3 years since I wrote my first post on this little blog, but it's true Design Improvised turns 3 this week! For each and every one of my readers, I am most grateful - whether you've followed me from Day 1 (i.e., my mom and friend Sarah) or this is the first post you've read on Design Improvised, I want to say THANK YOU!!
To show my appreciation, I am giving away a free room design (a $250 value) to one of my fantastic readers! If there is a room in your home that needs a little love, I would be honored to help. Just enter the giveaway at the end of the post.
You have each given me an invaluable gift by following this blog: something to be passionate about and want to do more and more of! It is so gratifying to know that other people enjoy what I make and even more, are inspired to make it themselves. I am thrilled when a blog reader sends me a photo of something they've created based on a Design Improvised project, so please keep them coming!
2013 was a great year for Design Improvised thanks to you:
- Design Improvised's daily readership has tripled since this time last year!
- My pom-pom balloons went viral and have been featured on numerous blogs, Daily Candy, Buzzfeed, Babble, and in two magazines - Homespun and Simply Crochet
- I've developed some fantastic partnerships with a few of my favorite magazines and brands including Better Homes and Gardens, Martha Stewart Living, Minted, and Hayneedle (more exciting things to come from these partnerships in 2014!)
- I joined the Martha's Circle ad network and was one of 18 bloggers chosen to participate in the 2014 12 Months of Martha program - you don't know how excited I am to create a craft with Martha Stewart products for you each month!
- While it still has a way to go, my photography has improved leaps and bounds from last year thanks to practice, practice, practice
Now for the exciting part - how to enter the giveaway!
