SOMEONE NOMINATE ME…Because I AM Freaking Out With Excitement !!

TRADITIONAL HOME MAGAZINE

is looking for designers for their upcoming issue.

…and…seriously  I can barely contain myself with excitement.

It has been a BIG TIME dream of mine to have our home published.

Like REALLY BIG TIME.

The kind of big time that would cause me to kiss you if you nominated me.  

Not the gross kinda kiss, just the kinda kiss that says…ohhh..you are my new best friend.

I would love to have the photos of our home and treehouse submitted, but I need YOUR help !!!

I can’t submit them

{ uhhhm, ’cause believe-you-me, I would !!! }

I must be nominated.

*

{I will sit here and wait, on the edge of my seat, tapping my foot & humming, waiting for you to read the submission details }

Then, if you really want to see me FREAK OUT

You will nominate me.

I might even buy you dinner.

With a nice bottle of French wine.

Is this sounding like bribery?! Because it is.

Here are the deets from their website Traditional Home which includes a hilare video on what it is really like to be an Interior Designer.

And here are the details from their site listed below…..  

I was too bloody excited to figure out how to download the video from their site.

 I need more coffee for that.

For the past 4 years, Traditional Home has recognized up-and-coming design talent with its annual hot list of NEW TRAD designers. This year, we want your help…

We’re inviting bloggers to help us identify the next wave of emerging design talent. We’re on the hunt for 10 up-and-coming designers who epitomize the new traditional design style to be showcased in the Spring 2012 issue of TRADhome—our interactive digital magazine.

Want to help? Send us a project by your favorite new traditional
designer. If we choose your submission, you’ll have the opportunity to be
a guest editor for TRADhome’s Spring 2012 issue.

SUBMISSIONS ACCEPTED FOR 10 DAYS:

All submissions due no later than Saturday, January 21 at 5pm estEMAIL SUBMISSIONS TO: NewTrads2012@TraditionalHome.comHere’s what we need from you:

  1. GREAT DESIGN A project from a designer who you believe is a true up-and-comer in the design world. Remember, a NEW TRAD designer redefines “traditional” and interprets it in his/her own familiar, yet fresh fashion. We’re looking for full projects here—houses, apartments, etc.
  2. INSPIRATION Tell us what you feel the designer has accomplished with this project and how it demonstrates his/her distinct point-of-view.
  3. ACCOLADES Tell us why you feel that this designer should be selected as one of the 2012 NEW TRAD designers.
  4. PRETTY PICTURES Provide images of the designer’s project, along with the location. Images should be submitted as a Zip file, no larger than 10 MB.
  5. DETAILS Include a bio of the designer—include name, company name, address, phone, email, Twitter username, and a URL for his/her website (if applicable).
  6. AND MORE DETAILS Include a bio for yourself—include your name, blog name, address, phone, email, Twitter username and a URL for your blog.

THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND:

  • You cannot nominate yourself. If you are a designer (in addition to a blogger) feel free to call up a blogger pal to nominate you!
  • The project must be available to be photographed for the magazine—and must not have been previously published in print or digital format.
  • We want to get to know you—both you and your designer must be available to be photographed for the story.
  • You can submit more than one project from a designer—or more than one designer—but each submission must be sent separately.
  • And finally, the buck stops here: you’ll receive a byline and a finder’s fee if your submission is chosen.

Feel Free to Share this with Your Blogging Friends! Click here to submit your NEW TRAD designer today!

NOW GO NOMINATE ME…

The clock is a tickin’

And I am so freaked out with happiness that I had to type all my words today in

BOLD. YUP . BOLD.

And I wrote all this while screaming from the rooftop too.

DON’T FORGET TO CLEAR YOUR CALENDAR

BECAUSE YOU AND I ARE GOING OUT FOR DINNER

AND A DOOOOZY OF A BOTTLE OF WINE.

{insert big smile}

    I saw pictures of your BEAUTIFUL home and treehouse in the “Our Homes: Grey &Bruce Counties” magazine. Amazing talent you have.
    Because of your talents, you have inspired me to take apart the shed my husband built for me and has since become a storage space for patio cushions and such…we no more! I have reclaimed my space and headed out to Home Depot early this morning to buy “cool cucumber” green and started painting the inside walls and floor. I gave the windows and door a fresh coat of white paint and I am currently waiting for the paint to dry. Thank you for inspiring me to do this job, since I have wanted to do this for a very long time. I also went out and bought a beach ball from the dollar store to start my next project on grapevine balls……I wish I knew how to send you the before and after photos of the shed…….

    Ok Lynne, I have looked at your pics – Wow! What a great place you have!
    (Until now I had not taken the time to go through your post list history.)
    Read through the application process – WHAT the (blank) is a Zip file, no larger than 10 MB? Other than, wanting to interview you for the “story”, and maybe needing an assistant to help me get this done – I may be (one of many probably) your Nominator.?
    Cheers!

    • Too funny Linda
      I was just writing to a friend and saying the same thing. Holy Amazeballs how do we get the photos into a zipped file less that 10 mega-zillion-trillion thing a ma bobs? So happy you wrote the same thing. I need a technical assistant. One that delivers wine at the same time.
      Lynne

      • Linda says:

        Hee hee! That reminds me – in college we would say, “M.B.” when we spotted a “Mod Boy” = “Hot” in today’s vernacular.
        Imagine needing 10 Mod Boys to assist in getting photos….ok, this is only going to be funny if you’ve had some wine!
        Cheers!

        • Oh ya, it was funny. At least I can imagine MOD BOYS instead of 10MB ! 10 MB sounds much more boring.

          • Linda says:

            Lynne – Are WE a team? Or has someone (better) contacted you through email? I think your back story makes for excellent copy – your home and setting are beautiful and EZ to photograph. My husband thinks it is important to find out where you live (no worries he has mega airline miles built-up) before we even enter – which makes me think he anticipates a win. (Don’t get excited – I don’t think he has read my blog yet – so he doesn’t really know what I’m trying to describe to him…but he’s really trying and THAT is the important thing!)
            You know “this all” happened on FRIDAY THE 13th – Our son was born on Friday the 13th – it was lucky for us then so why not now? (yes. just 2 glasses of wine and I’m like this…)
            Wait till you meet me and one of my special cocktails.
            Cheers!

            • Yes, we are a team. I do have multiple options for nominations, and Traditional Home says…the more the merrier- so we should just go for it ! I am gathering all my project photos this weekend and organizing them for submission to make it all as easy as possible. Talk soon ! :)
