Diversity of creative ideas has always been the
hallmark of home decorating. That's why I've asked
designer, artist, educator and writer, Marney
Makridakis, to share her own unique brand of
decorating advice in our "Ask the Decorator" column. I
think you'll enjoy her wit and original insights.

We Want to Hear Your Decorating Story

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I know I ate
too much! :-)

However, just when you thought it was over, I'm going
to serve up a lot more for you to feast on...in this
issue of DecoDreams.

I'll start with an exciting new feature we've added
to the Home Decorating Made Easy web site.

You see, I've always wanted to implement a way for
people who have benefited from the decorating advice
in our books and on our web site to share their
decorating successes and projects with others. Or
maybe to share a project that we haven't thought of.

After all, you can never get enough ideas, right?

So, we've created a simple form for you to share your
decorating stories and experiences.

Have you completed a project or solved a problem that
you think could benefit your fellow home decorators?

If so, we (and they) would love to hear about it! And
if you have pictures, all the better, although they
aren't required.

If we use your story, we'll turn it into a Web page
on our site and include your name. So join the fun
and tell us what you've been up to. Give us the
how-to details. Inquiring minds want to know!

You can get to the form by visiting this link...

Results of Our Survey

As you may know, in early November, I emailed
DecoDream subscribers requesting input on whether we
should go forward with our idea of creating a web
site dedicated to decorating children's rooms or
simply add more articles of this nature to

First, I want to thank everyone who responded. I felt
like I was gathered around a table with lots of great
friends exchanging thoughts and ideas.

And boy did I get a bunch! My email was lighting up
like a Las Vegas slot machine!

The great news is that I got all winners. That's
because I got so many new ideas for articles that I
can add to the Home Decorating Made Easy site. More
on that below.

Anyway, after gathering and carefully weighing the
feedback, we will move forward with creating a
separate site for children's rooms.

We are currently creating articles and anticipate
launching the site this month. So please stay tuned.
