Words cannot even begin to describe how excited, thrilled and proud I am to soon be featured in HomeStyle Magazine. About a month ago, I was just going about a normal day at work when I received an email from Natalie, deputy editor of HomeStyle Magazine, asking if I would be interested in being featured in Septembers issue. I was over the moon!
So, after a few emails back and forth, we established the best feature would be a tour of my bedroom, along with a couple of smiley head shots from myself and an online interview which I still have yet to complete. I cannot wait to see it all come together. I am going to be in a magazine!
On Wednesday I had a visit from the lovely photographer Fiona, and we spent the afternoon shooting my room from various different angles. It was pretty fantastic to see how it all worked and connected to the laptop, zooming in on images and getting different light angles… Apparently I made a great assistant whilst hiding behind the wardrobe holding an extra fancy flashlight aimed at the ceiling to remove certain shadows from the images… who knew!!
After getting all the shots in the bedroom, Fiona then took a photo of me sitting at my craft desk which wasn’t actually planned in the shoot. I guess we will all just have to wait and see whether or not it is included!
I will of course be shouting it from the rooftops in the days running up to the release, as far as I’m aware the issue will be released in August sometime as magazines generally release an issue dated as the following month… I’ve always wondered why they do that?
But for now I just have to sit tight. Oh it’s going to be a long couple of months!
