Happy Friday everyone! Hope those of you in the U.S. had a fun night of trick-or-treating last night. I’ve got a few updates to share heading into the weekend:

I have a big favor to ask – I’m nominated for the Babble Top 100 Readers’ Choice Awards and I would love if you could please share my nomination by clicking on the Facebook “share” button (go to this link and then click on the button next to my picture). Any sharing you can do will make a big difference!

Thanks to you guys, I’m actually doing pretty well in the Design / Home category. I can’t thank you enough for all you to do support Design Improvised. You’re what make it all worthwhile!


San Antonio Mom Blogs Feature

I’m excited to be interviewed on the site San Antonio Mom Blogs today. Run by Colleen Pence, it is an amazing way to discover all the great blogs written by San Antonio area moms.

Colleen asked me about my favorite DIY projects, room designs, and what I like best about San Antonio. Check out my interview here!


Colleen’s website was the best resource for me when we moved here and helped me get to know some area bloggers. Colleen also helps run the San Antonio Bloggers Facebook group – I couldn’t be more thankful for Colleen’s hard work to create an active community of bloggers here in San Antonio and her help in promoting our work!

“12 Months of Martha” Program

You guys may remember me crafting like crazy a couple weekends ago in hopes of getting a spot on the 2013 “12 Months of Martha” team. The editors at Martha Stewart Living select a handful of DIY Bloggers to receive a box of Martha Stewart crafting goodies each month to make a project and blog about it:


Some of my blogging friends like Studio DIY and Damask Love were chosen for the team last year and I was dying to find a way to get into the program. I mean it’s a full year of crafting supplies from Martha!

Well… I found out this week that I made the 2014 team!!! I’m can’t wait to craft up some fun stuff for you next year. If you missed them, I made the Halloween glitter art, jack-o-lantern lamp, and Boo wreath using Martha Stewart products for a chance on the team.

Have a great weekend everyone and a big virtual hug to each of you for reading Design Improvised!
