Hello...it's me

For full blog post, please visit http://www.thingsthatinspire.net/2016/03/helloits-me.html

Thank you for the many emails over the past six months! I took a small break from my blog, which turned into more of a hiatus. I did not check my blog email very often, so I apologize for the lack of response. I also closed down my online store, Quatrefoil Design, as part of this hiatus.

Everything is fine here - life is good. Over the past 18 months, my attentions turned to college admissions as I have a daughter who is in the high school class if 2016. It has been quite a journey, and she has been accepted to a wonderful college that is a great fit for her skills, talents, and interests.

I have also been working part time in a job that is completely unrelated to art, interior design, or architecture! I am really enjoying it and my ability to focus on details and make connections in a sea of data is a big asset for the work. It is seasonal work, and the season is coming to an end, just in time for the end of the school year.

Even though I haven’t been posting, I have been keeping a notebook of ideas and have several posts in the works. And, my living room and dining room have finally been installed (we ordered everything last summer, believe it or not, and it was just installed a few weeks ago!), so I will do a post on the results once all of the finishing touches are in place. I plan on returning to weekly posts on the blog and look forward to getting back to writing and posting.

Thank you for staying subscribed! Now onto reading the huge stack of design magazines that have been accumulating in my family room, and getting caught up on the design blog world.

  6. Welcome back! I have missed your blog and l look forward to reading more.

  7. Good for you and your family to take a break and do other things and congrats to your daughter a soon to be high school grad and shortly a freshman in college. That alone is busy work!!! I look forward to seeing your updated rooms. Have a good week.

  8. I do remember those busy months (years?) of touring colleges, reading about other colleges, coming to a consensus of what college would be best for each of our sons.
    I'm happy to see you will be back soon, lending your wonderful perspective on all things that inspire all of us.

  9. Wisdom is putting good on the back burner to make space for the better and best. Matching a child to a college requires lots of time and thought and prodding. :) It's nice to have you back. We all missed your blog posts. You are responsible for introducing me to the blogging design world. Thank you.

  13. So glad you're back and all is well! I am looking so forward to your upcoming posts. I refer to your old ones so often.

  14. Holly,

    I am so glad to hear you are back! The irony is, I only found your blog AFTER you stopped writing, so I was able to read a lot of old posts and roam around your website pinning everything in sight, but I thought you were gone for good and I was bummed. You and I have a very similar aesthetic, and I thought your posts very well written and definitely up my "style" alley. I am glad you are back now and look forward to seeing your house finished!

    In the meantime, I started my own blog about a year ago and am still learning and building my readership. Pop on over if you have time!


  15. I've missed your blog- it was always one of my favorites! Glad you're back


Thank you for your comments! I strive to make my blog positive in tone, and appreciate the same courtesy when comments are made. Thank you!
