Congratulations to our newest featured blogger, Hanna!
In her own words:
I started blogging… in 2002 on a rickety Windows 95 computer that only turned on sometimes. I had a massive wordpad document, and every post was in a different font color that represented my mood that day. I switched to Xanga when we got a new computer!
I’m known for… being the first (and sometimes only which is way worse) person in the room to turn something into an inappropriate and/or awkward situation. I’m also known for having trouble saying yes to any plan being made in advance. How do I know if I’ll still want to do something in 2 weeks?
I’m working on… a new playlist for my blog right now AND something really special that I think a lot of bloggers will appreciate and share (coming soon!). I’m also trying to set up an Interior Design feature on my site where I do little photo tours of other bloggers’ homes, so if your house or apartment is pretty send me an email.
I’m currently addicted to… I can put Nutella on anything, and I do so often. I’m also addicted to The Pretenders II album and The X-Files.
I find joy… anywhere. Yesterday I was at a sushi restaurant, and a stranger bought me a big Sapporo because I moved my chair over to give them more room. That gave me lots of joy…
I can’t do without… sources of laughter, personal space, fresh air, and people who give excellent hugs
I’m most creative… when strange things are happening in my life. I’m a magnet for all things ridiculous. The best recipe for my creativity is to put me in a room with something really weird, let me observe it, and then leave me alone for 2 days so I can decide how I feel about it and write/design something great from it. Works every time.
I admire… bloggers like Bri Emery from DesignLoveFest and Anna Dorfman from Door16 – amazing designers who have been able to do what they love and have seen their blogs completely flourish from it. I want to be able to share my life with people in that same way!
Make sure you add her blog, Excelsior Lady, to your reader.
