I just returned home from an amazing couple of days in Asheville, Greensboro and High Point, NC. It was a fun filled dream come true design challenge event sponsored by Shaw Floors HGTV Home line! Woo hoo!!! I had the opportunity to meet some awesome DIY/design bloggers face to face. Everyone was just as nice in real life as they are in the blogging community…really, some seriously talented and interesting bloggers. Meeting others who share my passion for DIY and decorating was so stimulating.
I didn’t know until I arrived who would be my teammate and the details were a little vague but the surprises were well worth the curiosity. I was lucky enough to be partnered with one of my favorite blog buddies, Cassity from Remodelaholic! She is so sweet, so pretty and amazingly creative and talented. We worked so well together and we were assigned a beautiful room as well as this gorgeous handscraped maple hardwood:
and our choice of area rug:

As if designing a room from the floor up wasn’t intoxicating enough, you’ll never guess who else we got to hang out with…
|Lisa LaPorta, Cassity (& Lydia) and Me|
Yes! That’s Lisa LaPorta from HGTV’s Designed to Sell. She is so sweet, so cute and yep, I was completely star struck!
Here’s the sneak peek!

More details on our room, the list of 8 other creative bloggers as well as the event with some surprises coming over the next two months! I just returned late last night but I’m still over the moon, out of this world – on Cloud 9!
We love how our room blossomed, had a blast working together and were ready to start packing it up in our suitcases to take home! And if you’re stopping by to read, what do you think of the room?! Flood us your thoughts – we need our cheerleadering blog friends! Cassity and I would love to know your thoughts (please…we’re both so excited) and tell us what you like best!
