I Heart Kansas City!

One of the reasons I have been so exhausted lately is that I am literally doing four jobs right now! But I wouldn’t have it any other way because they are all fun and exciting and have brought me into contact with some really amazing people, especially those at Kansas City Home Design magazine! I was approached a few months ago about signing on to become a judge for their KCHD Design Excellence Awards and in the process was also asked to write for the magazine! My first story about shopping in Soho was just published in the new May/June 2008 issue and the best part is that you can read it online! Woo hoo!

I would like to thank great team behind KCHD, Chadwick Brooks, the editor-in-chief; Erin Benda, the Director of Content and Creative; and Eryn Swanson, the Managing Editor for allowing me to be a part of their wonderful magazine. I will be Kansas City in June for the KCHD Design Excellence Awards ceremony and I can’t wait to finally meet them all in person!

I also can’t wait to meet fellow blogger and Kansas City resident, Mrs. Blandings, and my favorite Kansas City design friend, David Jimenez! Should be a very fun weekend! But now I have to get back to work!

    WOW HC, congratulations! Sounds like you have your hands full but you are doing an amazing job! Loved the article, several of those stores are my favorites and I learned about a new one as well. Can’t wait to check it out!

    I’m so jealous you get to meet David Jimenez…he is my absolute favorite!! Please tell him to leave Hallmark and jump fully into interior design! He’s more talented then most designers!

    wow, heather- it’s awesome you have so many great things going on! i couldn’t be happier for you! (and a little jealous you get to meet mrs. blandings in person).

    i’ve been meaning to email you a more personal note of congratulations, but have been a little busy myself, so a blog comment will have to suffice for now!

    They don’t have the latest issue on their site yet – I’ll check again tomorrow. Well congratulations to you! It’s great how things are really falling into place for you – although how could you avoid it when you’re working four jobs at once. I put a great “New York Moment” video on my post tonight – it’s the actor Griffin Dunn telling a story in Grand Central – I found it on Homer’s Odd – thought you might like it as a NYC girl!

    Like I have always said, “Cream rises to the top”-
    Sounds like an excellent addition to an already full cup! Literally, Kansas, here you come.

    Very cool – things are working out well for you. I’m looking forward to reading it.


    When design takes priority, the result is often strange closets.

    Fantastic Heather! I wish you all the best…you deserve it.I think those positive thoughts are really working! Have a great trip, and I hope we see some pics of your meeting with Mrs. Blandings and David.

    Love your blog, HC!! I’m a design student living in New York but I’m from St. Joseph, MO (just outside of Kansas City). I highly recommend you check out Nell’s Hills during your visit: http://www.nellhills.com/stores/

    Hope you enjoy visiting my old stomping grounds!

    Heather – I don’t know how I missed this post – obviously, so looking forward to the visit. I’m sure you’ll have the opportunity to see the best of the best.
