When One Door (Shelter Mag) Closes, Another One Opens

Upon the demise of my favorite magazine, I've decided to make my own.

Haha. Okay, well, not quite. But I've decided that this blog, small and heartfelt, will be my substitute magazine. This is where I will collect the great ideas I see on the web. The wonderful artists, the inspiring rooms, the beautiful outfits. The clever ideas. The awesome things made by awesome people.

It's the place I'll go when I want to be inspired.

I'd like to add in some of my own content, too, but that may be more difficult, as my camera is not taking very good pictures, and my life is a bit chaotic with all that I've got on my plate. But, maybe the challenge of trying to see the beauty wherever I go will be what I need to understand the order that's already there.

It will probably take me a while to find my groove. To figure out my links and my categories. And where exactly I want to go, but I think I will have some fun as I develop it all. The worst that can happen is that it doesn't fit with my life and I decide to stop posting. That's okay. It's a labor of love anyway, a hobby, something I do for myself. I want to have fun.

I decided to become a novelist one summer when I had no books to read. Maybe I'll become a publisher, now that Domino is folding.

That's a joke. But it's still the truth. If I can't find something out there to fit my needs, I'll make it myself.

oh, I was so sad that Domino closed :(
I like your idea of creating your own design blog!
