I'm so excited for what I have for you guys this morning! I'm honored for the chance to introduce you to a good friend that I've been working with for the past few months, and who has been my Featured Sponsor for the month of November: Shell of Kitty and Buck! I love everything about this lady and her blog, and it is definitely in my list of top favorites. Her space is full to the brim with beautiful photography, helpful tutorials, adorable kitties, frequent giveaways, her impeccable taste in clothes, and.. here, why not just let her tell you a little more about herself?! Take it away darlin':
Hi! My name is Shell, affectionately known as Kitty. I live in Sydney, Australia and I'm engaged to a charming fella from Arizona. I run the show over at Kitty & Buck, where I blog about creative inspiration, photography, travel, fashion, books and picnics - I also throw in the occasional DIY and recipe post! I launched Kitty & Buck this year as a reason to take more photographs. What started off as a photo-a-day blog but it quickly grew into something else entirely.
Around the same time, I opened my Etsy shop, also called Kitty & Buck, where I sell handmade accessories such as hair bows, detachable collars, vintage jewelry and whatever else takes my making fancy. This month I launched design services for all of you bloggers and small business owners out there, I am a professional graphic designer by trade and absolutely love the art of designing for a more handmade/small business clientele.
In the next 12 months, I'm working toward 'working for myself'. I've done my time as a designer for large business for a while now and that corporate office environment is not for me. I thrive on a more personal connection with my clients and creating work of value to someone personally.
I have already lived in London and traveled throughout the UK, Ireland and France. I've also visited over half of the states in the USA! I love travelling and I know when I'm my own boss, I'll definitely have a flexible vacation allowance, or at least a nice work-from-home-or-tropical-
island policy! I still hold out some hope of playing music and creating short films as well.
I don't know the meaning of the word bored :) When I'm not working, you'll find me snuggled on the couch with my cats and fiance, watching an old movie or reading a book, and when the weather is right, taking a hike through the woods.
My favorite thing about blogging is meeting new people, so don't be shy, come on over and say hello! :)
Thanks Shell! and if that wasn't enough, now we're moving onto the giveaway!
