In just a little over two weeks I will be headed to High Point Market along with nine other top bloggers to discover and report back on all the trends, colors and styles of Spring Market. I am so honored to be chosen and I honestly feel like a kid waiting for Christmas morning. Besides being like a design Disney World on steroids, High Point Market combines two of my absolute favorite things; design and photography. As soon as I walk into a show room I get so excited and I want to photograph and share everything. This year (for the first time) I think I am 100% prepared. I have two memory cards, two batteries and a brand new lens. Unlike the past two years, nothing is going to get in my way of shooting to my heart’s content.
I know several of the other blogger’s already and Amanda Gates and I were roomies at the Design Blogger’s Conference. It was such an unexpected coincidence when we found out we had both been chosen as High Point bloggers. (Although Amanda would probably say there is no such thing as coincidence).
Yes,I know I look NOTHING like my head shot but when I found out I was chosen I didn’t have time to get a new “baldish” head shot to the press office so the one posted here is pre-chemo.
The Design Blogger’s Tour is now in it’s second year and was developed in partnership with Esteem Media and these generous sponsors. Many of these brands I already use for my client projects so I am thrilled to be getting a first hand look at what’s new for 2016.
So if you love design be sure to mark your calendar for April 16-20 and follow along live with all our posts and tweets by following the hashtag #designbloggerstour.
