Maker Mood Board Contest

Hi Everyone!  Happy Holiday Weekend Friday!  Just dropping a quick line, no tutorial or $300 Powder Room Reveal today… Sorry- you’ll just have to wait until next week!

I’m entering into the Maker Mood Board Contest with one of my favorite sites by the way.  I could be lost browsing for hours, but my kiddos certainly wouldn’t allow that to happen!  Anyway, to enter I had to create a mood board, use a Porch photo, and choose an item from For all of the rules look here!  What a difficult task- look at house porn and go online window shopping- so hard 😉

What’s a mood board?  Well, it’s basically a collection of pictures, textures, words, or really anything that puts you in the mood…Well, not that mood, but the mood to decorate! That’s even better!  I’ve been creating for some time without even realizing it- ever since our house re-style began, I’ve been creating a folder for each room with bookmarked pages and pictures that catch my eye.  I have to be honest, now that I’ve made one, I don’t think I’ll go back to the old way! Having one graphic to allow you to grasp the entire feeling for your space- it’s pretty powerful and inspirational.

Since it’s the holiday weekend where it’s basically unpatriotic to NOT  be outside, I’ve decided to move outdoors and start prettying it up. My mood board reflects my inspiration and what I want to feel when I step out onto Bliss Street.

This is what I want our outdoor space to feel, smell, and look like when we walk into it.  I want to feel the grass underfoot, smell and hear the rain, and taste the burnt marshmallowy goodness of s’mores.  The epitome of summer.

Another part of this contest is to nominate 5 of my blogger friends to enter along with me!  Not in any particular order….

  • Timisha- Toolbox Divas
  • Jess- Live Randomly Simple
  • Alice- Homebody in Motion
  • Naomi & Sage- Plaster and Disaster
  • Karla- Small Town Rambler

I hope this gives you all a sense of  hopefully what’s to come outside On Bliss Street!  Thanks for playing along and I’d love to hear what you think! xoxo, happy summer!
