Bragging on the Little Sister

I've talked about my little sister before. She puts on a great party. Birthdays, Christmas themed parties, you name it. But did you know that my sister is an amazing designer, crafter, gardener, wedding planner, flower designer, and shop owner? I could go on and on, but I'll save that for the day I blackmail her into appearing as a guest designer for Project Heidi.

Until then, I'll tease you with pictures I snapped while attending a paper crafting party in her home:

First, i LOVE the initials abouve the bed. I am so gonna steal that idea cause that is what i do. I am a stealer...a the night, cause "in the night" makes it sound worse. and am i one of the worst stealers you will ever meet. although you will probably never meet me, but if you do, i am the worst stealer you will ever see. especially in the night.

second, i want the clippy picture thing that is metal and looks like a cash register box. just let your sister know that if she meets me at night i am gonna steal that too...for real. but i will not steal the initials, just the idea, cause i would have to change our names and all to match. and that is just way to much trouble for a lowly thief like me.

Oh Heidi, my place just sucks compared to the creativity of your sister and you! I'm so boring! lol Keep the ideas coming, though. I'm telling're going to be famous....

Heidi exagerates, just so you know.
I just have access to such great stuff at Poet's Garden that decorating is a matter of editing.
Thanks anyway - sis.

Just came over from Today's Creative Blog. I'm a fellow homeschooler/decorator/mother of boys (who also puts wagons on top of her armoires--but never thought of growing wheat grass in it--PERFECT!). Love your ideas and your style. The fact that you painted your room red says you aren't afraid of anything! Great job--beautiful home! Congratulations on the feature!

Hello Heidi

I too have found your blog through Today's Creative Blog... and what a fantastic find it is. Your interior decorating is inspiring and makes for that beautiful homely sort of feeling. The things you achieve with your boys while homeschooling them is amazing... such diverse and hands on projects. I'm also a fan of your book reviews. I will be visiting your blog on a regular basis. There's so much to love about it.

So your sister's house is going to be invaded by designed-starved marauders. Be prepared!
It's in your blood, this design-thing. You can't avoid it or deny it.
Beautiful home.
