Some Exciting News...

Go HERE, please!

Some of my writing and photography is being shown on Apartment Therapy's website. 

A couple months ago, I saw an ad on their website. They're searching for more contributers who can write/photograph for their "home tours" column. I thought, "why not?!" So I contacted a dear family friend, Jennifer Mackey, and asked if I could raid her house. She lives in an amazing place, and she graciously obliged and answered the home tour survey of all the basics about the house. I wrote up the intro, snapped and edited the photos and sent them in.

I thought that was that. Just a fun experience. Then, they contacted me and let me know that my work would be posted on their website--I'd made it through to the second round! It's definitely exciting. I have taken a look at some of the competition--it's tough. There's a lot of talented people out there. So, I don't expect to get hired, but I had a ton of fun doing this and still can't believe I even made it this far!

Ignore the typos (oops--there are two I caught too late!) and show me some comment love over there!

Hi Kate,
This is Kellan Rizza- I went to school with you at FUHS (was in Meghan Musone's class). Do you remeber me?

In any case, I found your blog through hers and have been following yours and all your great posts about DIY projects and such.

Just want to say that you have great style and I love that you uses Jennifers house for your Apt Therapy post. She did an amazing stained glass for my parents house in Fortuna.

Nice work and I hope you get the job!

Way to go, Kate! Taking the time and effort to try your talents. You receive quite the truck load of comments, some pretty critical. I thought you did a great job. I could've seen more pictures because I love pictures, but I don't know if they give you a limit. That would be hard to choose. Perfect opening picture! Love you!

Thanks for all the encouragement Ladies! I need it. Wow...typos sure are humbling! ;) I've definitely learned a lot through this.

And Kellan! Of course I remember you! Thanks for reading and the kind words. And you're right, Jenn is an amazing artist!
