Happy Friday!

I'm taking off for vacation next week but I'll be back on Tuesday, May 27 after the Memorial Day holiday. I'll leave you with some links today and I wish you a wonderful week ahead!

I'm in the process of gathering ideas and
inspiration over at my 2nd blog called Haus Maus.
Events & Things

  • Marisa's informative podcast: Art & Money. All about earning the green stuff, licensing your work as an artist, and how to price what you do so that you can feel good about yourself and earn respect from your customers.
  • bient?t demain is a blog I recently discovered that I think you'll fall in love with.
  • On a fashion-related tip, our beloved Amelie, who is the lovely Audrey Tatou, is the new face for Chanel. Oh how extremely exciting because she is perfect. I read this on Vie Chaotique. Which got me to do some research and I discovered that Audrey will star as Coco Chanel in Coco avant Chanel, currently filming. By the way, has anyone seen Ensemble, c'est tout? I'm trying to find a copy to purchase...

Frida at Husmusen in Sweden blogged about this
new paper from Sandbergs Tyg & Tapet that is just so lovely...

  • Haus Maus: A blog I just pulled together to focus more on my new apartment in Germany where I plan to live 5 months each year starting in August. Haus Maus is a very informal personal blog where I talk about my decorating and diy ideas for my new space. I also have lots of links on the blog for mostly Germany and Europe.

And for those of you waiting for the big contest news, Amy Butler sent me most of the images of the lovely items that she plans to give to the winners of our upcoming inspiration board contest so I'll post full details on May 27th. The prizes are lovely. The decor8/Amy Butler Contest will kick off on 5/27 and you'll have 3 weeks to submit your inspiration board to me. This year I'm allowing both digital boards and handmade ones so more have a chance to participate.

See you on Monday, May 27th. Have a wonderful week!
