At the time I started the blog I was working a corporate job in real estate valuations and was looking for a creative outlet for my interior design passion. I had been reading a few blogs (Elements of Style was the first I came across) and they inspired me to give it a go. I registered for a blogger account, played around with photoshop and html to create a decent looking blog design, and started posting. I had no expectations of anyone reading or it becoming anything more than a fun hobby. The shop I started after exploring a few different career paths and feeling unsatisfied. I was determined not to settle until I found what felt in my gut was just right. I used what little money I had and started out very small to test out the waters. As the orders started to come in, I used the profits to reinvest in the business and grow it. On September 25th it will be one year since I opened my virtual doors!
