i'm ready for my close up...

so.  i was contacted four or five months ago by a magazine scout (the extraordinary lisa mowry!!) complimenting me on my website and design work.  she told me she wanted to pitch my work to some of her editors to see if they might want to feature some of my work. omg.  ok.  she gets back to me with "hey guess what, just as i thought, they love your work, and we'd like to shoot your (my own!) house for not one, not two, but three separate better homes and gardens specialty publications!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

holy mother of mass media!  i have had last week (when said photo shoots actually happened) on my calendar since and haven't said too much to anybody just in case i was dreaming.  and i'm really falling out of an airplane.  naked.  with teachers yelling at me for not having my homework...

but yes, it really happened!!  the photo shoot for 3 separate magazines, shot by the fantabulous emily jenkins followill!!!  she is such an artist and an incredible business woman, i truly admire her!   i was kinda in and out for most of the time and only got to see a few of the shots on the screen.  i cannot wait to see them in print.  ok, sorry, holy mother of mass media!!!  seriously?!?!  i have monogrammed the paper bag i am hyperventilating in right now.

don't think it's all pillow fluff and mirrors.  no sir'ee!  lisa and i busted our butts to pull everything together, primping and pimping, schlepping and rearranging, styling and profiling ;)  a very special thanks to my assistant, rainey (yeah that's right, i got me an assistant just 'cause that's how i'm rolling...).  omg.  omg.  omg.  hyperventilating again!!!

also special thanks to atlanta made, bungalow classic, city issue, kudzu antiques, anthropologie, and crate and barrel, who know my credit card # by heart!!

i will definitely keep you all posted as to the publication times of each mag!  be out on the lookout for a full house spread in refresh mag, a kitchen spread in kitchen and bath ideas and a bath piece in one of their specialty bath mags!!!!!  i'm sorry, one more time, this time with feeling.  holy mother of mass media!!!  who's excited??  me me me me me me! thank you lisa, emily, and better homes and gardens.
