I have been working on my new website and blog for several months now. I didn't realise it was going to be such an involved and drawn out process, and that my ability to commit time to it would be so sporadic.
Here's the gorgeous side table I bought from Hopewood a few weeks ago in situ. I think my husband has forgiven me for secretly buying it, particularly as I managed to sell a whole lot of stuff on eBay this week. Don't forget the final open weekend is this Sat/Sun in Bowral. See my previous post on this for info.
What was going to be a three week process of blog and website development, has turned into a three month saga. But I am in the very capable and patient hands of Eric at Nella Creative, so it's been a very easy and relaxed project despite it dragging on. In fact, it's the first website or graphic design project I've ever enjoyed. I can't recommend Eric highly enough.
Part of the new website is a portfolio and gallery of our home. I am nervously sticking my hat in the ring offering design services, although I'm not entirely sure or at all confident about how that's going to go with three young kids and a blog I struggle to keep up with, but I thought I'd give it a crack. So I've been wandering around the house taking a few detail shots for the gallery.
As part of the new website I will also be able to help you with Fabrics and Wallpapers, product sourcing and consulting. I have created a very comprehensive FAQ section about the house that I hope will answer a lot of the questions I get asked regularly.
I have also joined Creative Jack Management, a new blogger agency who represents a great stable of sensational bloggers, and who will be representing my media interests on the blog going forward. So if you are interested in advertising, sponsorship, giveaways or ambassadorships Dana will be the contact. There will be more about this when we launch, but don't worry, I'm very mindful of not changing the essence, spirit and purpose of this blog.

Hopefully it won't be too long before I can reveal the finished product and we go live.
Now on another note - are you in the business of interior design or decorating in Australia? Did you study in Sydney? Where? Would you recommend it? I'd love to hear about your experiences and thoughts if you did.
