Happy Birthday to Me!

Yep, I've hit that ripe old age of 34, Eeeek!!!! 
I don't even know what to do with that number. 

My wrinkles definitely seem to understand this age, but my mind hasn't quite caught up.  I probably will ALWAYS feel like a kid at heart! I suppose that is the best way to live :) 

So, In CELEBRATION of this big day 
I have decided to do a Q&A Session

Ask any BURNING question that you might have about Decorating, Paint, Furniture, a question about yours truly, 
just WHATEVER you are just dying to know! 
I would LOVE to share :)

I do have 2 Ground Rules!

~Be sure your questions are NICE and Respectful 
( Nobody likes a party crasher)...WINK ;)

~ Be sure that the questions aren't TOO personal! 
( I wouldn't want you to Blush in embarrassment...hehe  )

So...Ask Away!!!


  1. Just wanted to congrat you on your TCB feature! Happy birthday!

  2. Happy Birthday! It's my birthday today, too. I'm 43 though. Feeling better about 34? ;) Hope you have a wonderful day!

  3. HAPPY Birthday!!!! I just turned 33, so I know how you feel. :/
    I've heard you were Miss Idaho! If that is right, can you tell us about that? How did that begin, what was the scariest part, did you feel inadequate or were you full of confidence, if you had to do a talent, how were your responsibilities after you won, etc. etc. (Okay, I really hope my sources were correct or I'm going to feel like a fool asking!)
    Also, tell us about how you are your husband met, your first date, how he proposed, etc.!
    By the way, does he have a sister Holly? I went to Jr. High with her!

  4. P.S.
    One more!
    Everyone wants their husband to love to decorate and build things for the home. (Such as all of your beautiful trim.) Did you train your husband or was he just naturally that way? How much does he care about how the home looks? The rest of us need tips on getting our husbands involved!
    Wow, I could think of a million more questions to ask you! This could get dangerous!

  5. Making my way here from TCB. Hapde burfday to you!

  6. It's my birthday too! Have a wonderful day :)

  7. Hi Heidi! I just found your blog today via Today's Creative Blog and I really love it! I've followed and subscribed every possible way I can, so I'm an official stalker now I guess! LOL! Can't wait to look around some're an amazing lady. Thanks for sharing your talent with us.

  8. Just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday!

  9. Happy Birthday to you!! You were featured on Today's Creative Blog today- pretty cool birthday present I would say :)

    I am still drooling over all the photos of your gorgeous home!!

    Have a great day,

  10. Just wanted to say Happy Birthday, Heidi! I 'll be 39 this year...;) You are still a baby...;)

  11. Happy Birthday! So my question is: do you prefer to paint or spray paint furniture? And last but not least, your flour, sugar, etc jars in your pantry, what sizes are they? I found the jars at walmart but they look so huge in real life, can you recall the sizes you used? Thanks Heidi, keep up all the great work!

  12. First, Happy Birthday! I love your blog, and come here every day to get inspired! My question:

    You use a lot of moulding/wood work in your rooms. Does this match the style of your house (what would that moulding work be... craftsman?)? I have a small tudor-esque house. How important is it to match the exterior style to the interior (in your opinion)? For example, I saw an entry that had painted wallpaper done in a silver, with mirrored console. So pretty in the picture, but do you think that you need a more modern (I guess?) type of house to pull this off? Also, I love all of the moulding, but not sure we can do it here (we have bead board in our kitchen and upstairs bath already... can we do the walls in the bedrooms with board-and-baton?).

    I hope I was clear... I have a newborn and 2 little ones, so I keep having to leave and come back to this comment!! lol


    I just love your style!

  13. Hi, I just found your site today and I'm hooked! First of all Happy Birthday - 34 is NOTHING! Own it. Your thirties (in my opinion) are some of the best years of your life (I'm 45). Anyway, my question is about the scrumptious birthday cake you have pictured. Do you have a recipe for that? If not, do you know what kind it is? I would LOVE to try to make it and add it to my recipe collection. Always looking for fabulous recipes.
    Looking forward to following your blog. Enjoy your Birthday! LA in Colorado

  14. Well happy birthday! I'm a new follower after seeing your blog featured somewhere today. Can't wait to see how your kitchen turns out!

  15. Hope you are having a great birthday! I want to know what your husband says when you come up with these great projects? Is he on board and ready to tackle it, or does he roll his eyes, and say, "how much is this going to cost me";o) Those would be the words my lovely darling says EVERY TIME I suggest a wood working project:o) Keep up the great work!!!

  16. Happy Birthday Heidi! Hope you have a great day celebrating

    PS: Your home photos are amazing! I want a house like yours!
    what is your favorite place/s to shop ?!

  17. I am from Idaho too! Where are some of your favorite places in Idaho to get home decor?

  18. Who's your cabinet guy? Is it the same person who did you kitchen as did your office desk?

  19. Just came over from TCB! I am your newest follower! Cute stuff!

  20. Happy Birthday to YOU!
    Any question huh...
    If you could design any celebrity home, who's would it be?

  21. Happy Birthday...did u make that cake (and if so recipe please!) or get from a bakery, looks delish! Enjoy...

  22. In a previous post you said your family goes to Bear Lake every year. I would like to have a family reunion there and would like to know:

    (1) Do you rent a home? condo? and which one?

    (2) this year you said you camped there so I'm curious where and who you went through to do this. It would be nice to know/have a couple of options depending upon if people want to rough it or not.
