Here are four questions that I am supposed to answer.
1. What am I working on?
Hmm, what am I not working on? I usually have two to three big projects going at once. Since I just got done working on my French daybed project, I thought maybe I will take a few days off. One of the projects I am excited to be starting is my bathroom vanity mirror. I have one of those plain double vanity mirror and I am planning to turn it into something very French, gilded and feminine. We will see.
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I don't think I have a genre? I guess I love French romantic with a touch of whimsy and definitely feminine. Perhaps my work is different because I use my house as my artist canvas. And I don't have anyone to say No to me. : ) I don't think there should be any rule when it comes to decorating a home. A home should represents who we are as people.
3. Why do I write/create what I do?
Because that is the only way I know how to live. I live in my head and my head is filled with ideas non-stop. Sometimes I can't sleep. When I was in high school and college, I did sculpting and I was obsessed with it. I didn't want to sleep or eat or do anything but sculpt. I lost a lot of weights. I was good at it but it was not good for me. I feel lost when I am not creating. In another life, I would be a starving artist...you know a bit delusional, eccentric and probably smelly. The good thing now is I have two little girls who keep me in checked.
4. How does your writing/creating process work?
Well, it always start with an inspiration. A picture. A book. A song. A person. A feeling. Anything gets me going. I obsessed over it for a few days and I can't sleep because I am trying to figure out how I am going to make it happen. Then I do research...whether it'll be the history of a piece or the technical part of making it. I usually don't stop until I make it happen. I am nothing if not always overly ambitious.
Here are two amazing bloggers who will be continuing with the blog tour.
Mary blogs at Orphans with Make up. Mary never ceases to amaze me. She has amazing sense of style and her furniture make overs are always inspiring. Here is a little bit about the blog from Mary herself.
Hi! My name is Mary Vitullo. I live in Saint-Hubert, Quebec (a suburb of Montreal in French Canada). I am a wife, and mother of 3 boys. I have always been passionate about home decor and can never seem to quench my thirst for it! I have always been resourceful in decorating on a small budget and one of the easiest ways to do that is to repurpose and repaint vintage and antique furniture pieces, or my little "ORPHANS" as I like to call them. "Orphans With MakeUp" is just that, abandoned furniture pieces given a new makeover with paint, "MAKEUP". I use photography and styling to show them at their best.
Darrielle is the amazing blogger of the blog D.D.'s Cottage and Design. This woman can paint!... and she does it so amazingly well. I am excited for you see her works.
