See?...there it is! Can you believe it? (Big green arrows, in case you were wondering)
Want to know how it all went down? Well, it all started
Well, that date came and went and I thought I had missed it somehow. Houzz is a huge site and I figured I just didn't know where to look to find it. So, I sent her an email and asked for a link to the article because 'I'm the dummy who missed my own feature.'
Vanessa responded and told me I didn't miss it and that her editor had seen my house photos and thought they could possibly do an entire house tour instead of just the diamond wall feature. Holy moly! Too fun!
She asked me to create a professional profile and upload my photos. Well, wouldn't you know it that my pictures weren't the right size. Picture sizing might possibly send me to an early grave. Here's the main reason I say Vanessa was such a pleasure to work with...she didn't make me feel stupid once, even when I kept sending the wrong sizes to her. Finally, I had to contact the photographer and luckily she hadn't deleted my photos. Problem solved.
Next, Vanessa sent me this list of interview questions:
After the personal questions, then you have the sourcing questions. She basically went through each room and asked for paint colors and where products were purchased. I had to stretch my brain a little on this one and pull out the archives!
So 25 emails later, it's all in her hands. She creates the 'tour,' sends it to her editor and we wait for it to go live. She was kind enough to send me an email last night to let me know it was up.

Have a great weekend, friends!
