H! Here's a bit about me. Next to eating,I love to decorate and create things.I have always had a passion for rearranging furniture (I know that sounds weird) and have always loved to write.

Although I never attended school for interior design, I have a hell of an eye for it and could make any space look a ZILLION times better with a little bit of nothing! I guess that's one of the benefits of growing up with just enough; you're forced to be creative!

I did attend school for broadcast journalism and but end up working in healthcare administration (I know. That sounds weird too) I am now a full time interior (and exterior) design blogger with an online store full of the things that I like to blog about. What more could a girl ask for?

Thanks for taking the time to read about me, and I look forward to meeting you!

Sincerely, Tonya Designs
