This lady is seriously amazing! She does almost everything by herself. Her husband suffers from MS and is in a wheelchair. She just totally amazes me. I'm not into color like she is, but I still can't get over how creative she is & on a strict budget.

She is creative, and I used to love her blog… but I think she's a b***h.  She's rude to people in comments, tends to lecture and sound superior, and I don't know how many times I've seen her tell people if they didn't like her blog they were welcome to leave.  All of that is true, and her perogative… but it sure doesn't endear her to her readers.

Good to know, I don't usually read comments. She's been stepping it up since they are moving and selling the condo, so I've been reading her more than usual.

She's a total SOMI for me, because she's a one-woman force of nature.  What she accomplishes is really astounding – and that's coming from someone who is at the complete opposite end of the color-choice spectrum than she is!  

 

She also blogged about GOMI today (without naming it) and I have to say I really like her blogging philosophy.  

 

I've never seen her be rude in the comments either, though I don't always read them.  (I really try not to read comments on the internet in general, mostly as a way to keep my blood pressure down about idiot conservative trolls…)

Yeah, I saw that. I also can't stand to read the comments, although most of my favorite bloggers seem to get favorable ones (when I do scan them). I'm not normally a snarky type person, but I do like to see other peoples' opinions on here. This site seems to have a really negative reputation out there.

I was glad I added her to the SOMI part, although she did mention flying under the radar, so maybe she didn't see this? She might have noticed a spike in traffic though :)

Another thing she does that I don't like is she photoshops her pictures.  I don't mean just correcting white balance or tweaking colors…. she photo shops stuff INTO her rooms that aren't actually there.

I have no problem with editing stuff like blown out windows or fixing the quality of a photo… but when you're putting stuff in them that isn't really there… I think it's deceitful.  

I read blogs to get inspiration and diy tips.  I don't expect rooms to be perfect.  In fact…  I like when a blogger is human and admits when something doesn't turn out the way they envisioned or when they show rooms in stages.  It's reality.  I don't have to see a magazine perfect room.  Especially if it's perfect because you've photo shopped in stuff you didn't have time to do or adding accessories you don't actually own.

I actually really really really (really!) like this blogger! She's an absolute dynamo DIYer!

When she posted last week about GOMI, (without naming it), I challenged her in the comments, and told her that there was some very worthwhile discussion here, and her reply was very thoughtful and balanced. She even said that she thinks bloggers should read some of this stuff, and learn from it.

I've never seen her be rude in the comments, although I don't read every one.

Her colors and the matchy-matchiness of everything isn't for me, but I love how she's taken a boring/ugly box and brought it around. It is amazing what she manages to take on in such a small space (living in one, I know how hard it is to constantly be surrounded by half done projects). I love the dining area and the built-ins she's added and I love when she does a final reveal how she links in all the other smaller projects that go along with it. It is really hard to find apartment blogs so I'm sort of bummed she's moving soon.

Wow, this house looks like a major money pit to me, but I can't wait to see what she does with it. It looks like they got it for a great price, especially since it sits on an acre of land.

She's really rocking it though. I can't believe she does all of this by herself.

She works so hard on all the stuff she does, and really understands how to be on a budget. She's a freaking dynamo!

I read this blog, from time to time, and while I totally agree she can be a little ascerbic at times, I have not noticed things being photoshopped into pics other than when she does a before/possible after type post, showing ideas, etc. Do you have an example? I must really miss stuff, or she must be great at photoshop.

 

Sorry, I haven't quite figured out the posting here.
