The Joy of Holiday Writing: Journals, Cards, Letters

I love this time of year. I look forward to relishing the time I take to write Christmas cards and letters to friends near and far. It's also a wonderful time to write down all of those customs and traditions that make your family your family. Keeping a journal is a priceless way to record your family memories.

I explore the joy of writing such notes, cards and journals in my latest blog for Hooker Furniture. I hope it inspires you in your own creative writing as you enjoy your time with family friends.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,

The Power of Paint!

Summer is almost here!

A change of seasons often inspires a change in our home decor. I'm working on a summer series for Hooker Furniture called How to Make Your Home Better Without Renovating. This series will focus on how to make some nice adjustments to style without having to commit to the large-scale investments involved in construction renovations.

My first installment The Power of Paint! 

Enjoy - and be sure to let me know what your favorite summer decor might include!
