{everday beautiful life: design crush}

Yay, it’s Thursday! That mean’s another addition of {EBL}, and this week we have Kelly from Design Crush. I am very happy to have her, especially since she almost didn’t make the schedule this year. When I first started scheduling the series, I had no idea the response I’d get.  We had scheduled her in July, but soon I had hundreds of e-mails to sort through and lost her message, so she would have had to be scheduled for February 2010. As luck would have it, something popped up for this weeks guest, and voila! She saved the day. It was fate! {BTW have you seen her Daily Eats? Ugh! So delish!} Anyhow, here goes 10 things that make Kelly’s life beautiful:

{Art Supplies} I’m talking everything from back to school supplies to the more big time products. They all make me incredibly giddy and happy – especially when they’re fresh out of the package! I think it’s the thought of the possibilities and what I might create from them that thrills me.

{Baking} Firing up the oven and getting out the Kitchen-Aid mixer has become a really therapeutic activity for me. There’s just something about following a recipe that clears my head. Getting to eat the end results isn’t too shabby a job either!

{Blogging} Writing for Design Crush is one of my favorite parts of the day. There’s nothing like the feeling of seeing an artist’s work or a product that I love and that I know my readers will flip their lids over! It’s a combination of excitement and accomplishment that I really love. Not to mention all of the fantastic and amazing people I get to meet via my rants and writing, that’s really the most rewarding part.

{Creating} My life would be nothing without creating. Whether I’m designing a logo or making up a new dinner recipe on the fly, it’s having the opportunity to create something that helps me sleep at night. It’s a necessary release of all the thoughts and emotions that get built up on the inside.

{Cupcakes} Okay fine, cake in general! I love it. It makes me smile. And I’m 100% sure a girl could have worst vices than baked goods.

(Halloween} My favorite holiday. {I can thank my mom – it happens to be her favorite, too.} I look forward to it all year long and am convinced maybe there should be a second one at the halfway point in April!

{Learning} Without the pursuit of learning something new I feel stagnant. Right now it’s learning how to take care of my new dog, Piper. Trying to figure out her moods and personality is keeping me on my toes!

{Organization} I believe in lists and piles and order. It pays off about 95% of the time, I swear!

{Rain} The darkening skies, the smell of ozone in the air…. ahhhh. I love everything about it, especially how it makes me not have to water my lawn in the summer!

{White Bedding} There’s absolutely nothing more indulgent and relaxing in my mind. One of the ways I spoil myself is with Egyptian cotton sheets and a fluffy down comforter. It makes it more difficult to crawl out of bed in the mornings, but so worth it!
