I could not be more thrilled to make today's announcement. In fact, I'm still pinching myself.
When I first started blogging, I stumbled across a fabulous site called IHeart Organizing. It was love at first sight - I spent hours combing through project galleries, reading posts and related posts and favourite posts and pretty much everything that could be devoured in one sitting. The owner, Jennifer Jones, has an incredible talent for organising her home and bringing beauty to every single space she touches. Seriously, the woman is an organising goddess. Plus she is kind and sweet and smart and yes, gorgeous too. If I was a guy I'd totally have a crush on her. As it is I kind of have a girl-crush on her. In a totally non-stalkerish, I-am-happily-married-with-three-children sort of way.
I became an avid reader of said blog, and gradually came to realise just what a juggernaut of a success story it is. I mean, we're talking 2.5 million page views a month. That's massive!
So when, at the end of last year, Jen casually posted that she was looking to add a couple of new members to her contributor team, my first thought was OHMYGOODNESS THAT WOULD BE AMAZING, following in quick succession by no way would I ever be good enough for that.
But dreams are made for chasing, so I put in an application anyway, kind of embarrassed that Jen would infer from this that I actually thought I had a chance. I really badly wanted to let her know that it was okay, I didn't really expect her to choose me, and I completely knew what a long shot it was to even apply... but that's not exactly the sort of thing one can write in an application, is it?!
So you can imagine my complete and utter shock and delight when THIS happened:
Yes, guys.... can you believe it??! I still can't! I could not be more honoured and excited to be partnering up with Jen.
Today is my debut contributor post over at IHeart Organizing, and I'm sharing my chalkboard pantry makeover - I'd be thrilled if you would come over and check it out!

In other news, my whole site is undergoing a behind-the-scenes refurbishment at the moment, so stay tuned to see the unveiling in a couple of weeks' time - I can't wait! It's going to be cleaner, fresher, bigger, easier to read and navigate, and mobile responsive - all with a pretty new look that I'm super excited about! I'll be migrating from my Blogger platform over to Wordpress, and I'm looking forward to all the many extra capabilities that will bring.
Meanwhile, don't forget to take a look at my chalkboard pantry makeover, and tell me... how do you organise your pantry?
