So as much as this is going to sound pretentious and like I’m accepting an Emmy or something, I just wanted to say thank you. Thank you if you creep my projects, comment occasionally, pin the occasional project or simply check in every once in a while, thank you. And I don’t just mean it today because it’s my blogiversary, but I really do mean it. As Anna Dorfman puts it, I don’t have social anxiety on the internet. Thank you for supporting my silly ideas, none of which would have happened if it wasn’t for this.
Exactly 5 years ago today, whilst sitting on that very chair and on this very laptop, I decided to create a thing called a blog. I was excited and nervous and never expected anything ever to come of it.
I created my website [then called ‘Hydrangea Girl’] as a place to share design stuff I fancied while studying for my BA in Interior Design, right as the sweltering recession hit [most excellent timing]. I started my blog as I knew I’d never be able to get a job in an Interior Design firm. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d end up working on such incredible projects and meet such awesome people thanks to that one August afternoon sitting in my pyjamas on the couch. Yeesh. Feelings.
