A few weeks ago it was brought to my attention that several of you guys got on line and voted for me in the decorator column of the Arkansas Times “Best Of” issue.
To be “voted” the best at something does not necessarily make one the better subject, in my opinion it simply means the name is more recognized at the time of the poll via marketing, self promotion and of course hard work.
Anyway, without a doubt, I take great pride in my work and somehow someway I was given the …gift of this skill. I can barely draw a stick man and I can’t read a tape measure below 1/4″ but give me a box of multi size blocks and I can assure you the placement of those blocks in that box will be visually pleasing once arranged.
There are a lot of areas that I’ve not mastered in my field and way more than mentioned above. But I have the foresight to see my flaws and the will power to hit those flaws head on and then get them corrected and then move forward. My ultimate goal is to get my head on the same page as the words that read “Best Decorator”. To get myself mentally there means I must adapt to changes and the ability to allow people in my life to help me evolve.
Thank you to my vendors for being so patient with me, I know my artistic shenanigans have worn you out. Thank you clients for your patience with me and my schedule. Thank you Jennifer West Bartsch and Cheryl Weaver Smith for your hard work and full time dedication to Interiors West (your hard work is making a difference in me). Thank you family and friends for understanding that my absence from our physical interaction does not mean I love you or MISS you any less. Thank you Arkansas Times readers for thinking about us during the poll. Thank you Facebook and those of you on this page and further who I give a lot of credit to for making me more publicly visible. And finally, thank you to my mind for allowing me the courage to waste your time on this Sunday morning because of reading my over the top acceptance speech. As if I just won an Oscar! wink emoticon.
