To get back to Florida and get my feet wet

But more than that... my new blog will be debuting soon! And I CAN'T WAIT!!!

When I started this blog I had big ideas about the way I wanted it to look - the vibe, the design, the colors, etc. Unfortunately I have no skills. I couldn't do what needed to be done to have a fantabulous looking site. I have a tough time, too, with the content sometimes, but I always thought I would be more inspired when Design Junkies looked exciting to me. Finally, that's about to happen!

I reached out to Susie Q of Eye Q through her blog Eye Spy. Susie came highly recommended by the sistas at My Favorite and My Best and Design Manifest. So, we were on and Susie delivered! Shit's happening, I don't know what - I don't know the process, but she sent me drafts of 3 choices yesterday and - even though she poo-poo'd my idea to include cigarette butts ( I must be the only one to 'get' that idea, because everybody I mention that to is repulsed), she showed me one idea that hits me in the chest and makes my lungs dance. So, I suppose we move forward from there and soon enough poor, unfortunate looking Design Junkies will be sporting a made-over look that will make design junkies everywhere, in the world, the WHOLE world, want to read it.


Because there's no cigarette butts. 


  1. You made a perfect choice in enlisting the talents of the amazing Susie Q. I can tell you from first hand knowledge that she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet, a talented artist, a brilliant graphic designer, and an amazing interior designer, as well. Yes, there is little this woman can not do. I may be slightly biased as she is a good friend of mine, but I know you'll be thrilled with the result. I'm excited to see your big reveal!

  2. Positively! I believe she has nailed Design Junkies and my style. She took the information I gave her and translated it all into something exciting. She's getting me all hooked up to have a bangin' blog! YAY Susie!


What you got for me?
