Why pick this post? Because I am proud of me for staying true to myself and honest with you. I have been wanting to write a little about an experience I once had on the decorating site RMS/HGTV. Most of you may be familiar with this site.
OnCe upon a time in the Month Of NOvember 2008, Miss Debbie was watching HGTV, not once, not twice, but all the time.
I saw this Show hosted by this dude named Angelo called Rate My space. The show was pretty neat so I thought I would check out the website. I anxiously uploaded up my kitchen pictures, a bit nervous I will say, yet excited to see what my reviews would be. I was pleasantly surprised, and receiving some nice feedback and opinions. I in turn, as time went on, spent my free time helping others.At times private pictures where being sent to me and I offered up suggestions, and was so happy to do so. I met some wonderful, talented women, who encouraged me often to start my own blog. I thought no way could I, I do not know what I am doing on the computer.
Funny, I will not allow my boys to utter the words CAN'T do it!~ Yet I did not have the confidence in myself. That since has changed, and I feel confident enough to take risks. As the saying goes, no risk no reward.
I made some wonderful connections on RMS. My gal pals on RMS slowly but surely jumped on the blog wagon after I started mine. They certainly saw the fun I was having, and I am still encouraging more to do so!~ I seriously thought in the beginning, what would I have to offer to the blogging community that is not already out there? And who would want to read? and see my projects or my home, and my painting and re purposing jobs? I mean I am a nobody out here...(not really I am a super star did you see my commercial? or Oprah audition?) I am a minor celebrity in my town
NOT All kidding aside.
My experience on RMS is what lead me to blogging. I cannot not be happier. I would have never met or read any of your stories, and made the connections that I have.
I did receive on a time or two, or three some rude comments on RMS.
My creative spirit was not broken, it in fact was driven.
on to my actual reason for this post. Ha you thought when the hell is she getting off her soap box!?~
One of my thousands of download on RMS was my bedroom, which is always changed up per season. However, the poster and plates are always part of the change. I love to decorate using plates, why?
Because they add color, texture and to me the unexpected art. Not to mention we all have plates, and they are inexpensive way to add flair to a room.
With vintage plates, modern plates, all the shapes and sizes, I do believe you can achieve really unique wall art by incorporating them. I remember all too well the first negative comment I received regarding my plates on the wall in my bedroom....it went something like "Plates on the bedroom wall that, is stupid???" I started to question myself, and think wow is it stupid, why do I like that? I came to the conclusion and obvious rational that of course my taste would not suit all, and at the end of the day, I still liked them, and continue to have them, however, I change them out per season, so now I have even more Plates~~ So suzie77 you never did change my mind..
Oh and may I mention my poster got picked on a few times on RMS, just baffling why I have a hot chocolate french poster over my bed...why
because I like it!!~:) and the colors are fantastic! to ME.....
Now that I have given you my plate tutorial of decorating let me show you some ideas I also found on line
Look plates on the bedroom wall
I believe there is inspiration everywhere we look, at least everywhere I look, I see color, texture and get design ideas everyday!~ Can't you tell? I am changing up something every other day.
