The Big Announcement
**UPDATE** The link is fixed. Sorry about that!!! Carry on.
Okay, so that is possibly my most UN-creative blog post title ever. But hey, when the news is great, who needs a catchy title?
I’ve been working on this project. I may have mentioned it once or twice. I have actually been eating, sleeping, breathing this project. Just ask my husband and the 4 or 5 friends I’ve let in on my little brainchild. And my partner in crime, oh she may rue the day she ever said, "Sure, sounds like fun!" when I proposed my little idea. And then there is the poor unsuspecting designer who I contacted in a fit of inspiration one night, before I had ironed out any of the details.
All of the above are victims of my intensely obsessive personality. Please say a prayer for them.
See, this is how it happened. I found myself applying to be a contributor on two beauty blogs. And I needed a sample of my work, so I wrote up this little review on my fabulous find, Dr. Brandt’s Pores No More.
And then I got such a good response to that post that it occurred to me, Why am I applying to work on someone else’s beauty blog? I could do this! Wouldn’t it be fun to have a whole blog dedicated to gabbing about beauty products??
I know, I know, beauty blogs are a dime a dozen. But we could be entertaining AND informative! And then I thought, I need a partner. Who loves entertaining the masses and trying out beauty products?
And before I knew it, I zapped out an email to my buddy June, who took exactly two seconds to zap me back with an affirmative.
Before I knew it, I had a new blog and was brainstorming titles and taglines and design ideas — details which consumed me and everyone within ten yards of my presence for the following week.
My brilliant designer Jules was on a designing hiatus, so I contacted one of my faithful readers, Nap Warden, at NW Designs to see about putting together a header for the new blog.
And I am here to tell you that Nap Warden, despite her formidable name, is the most delightful, patient, fun lady I have had the pleasure of working with. She helped me brainstorm a title and tagline and graciously put up with my ten zillion trillion questions.
Okay, I jest. Because it was really more like 25 zillion trillion questions.
And then she tweaked, altered, and fine-tuned until my OCD was thoroughly appeased.
I suppose you want to see the final result. Twist my arm. Really, twist it hard. Because you know I’m not DYING TO SHOW YOU ALREADY!!!
*drum roll pleeeease*
