So Where Do I Go From Here~

Hello Lovelies!

It's been a while.

I'm not sure how many people I even have left reading The Shabby Nest since I haven't been giving it the attention it deserves for quite a while.  But I sure hope there are some of you still out there because I'm looking for some input.

I have been thinking a lot about the blog.  And I'm not ready to throw in the towel on it.
 But, I'm also not sure what direction to take it.

I am an interior designer.  I LOVE DESIGN!  But it has been really hard for me to keep up on the type of amazing projects that all the wonderful design blogs out there are posting.  I get the projects done...but since I became a single mom...I churn them out a lot more slowly than I used to. Lol!

So I can't give up writing about design.

But I also love fashion.  I graduated with a degree in Fashion Merchandising (Just like Elle Woods! Any Legally Blonde fans out there?).  And my love for fashion has never diminished.  I have done fashion posts here and there along my blogging journey, but never really focused on them.

I considered starting a separate fashion blog...about fashion for families...but the idea of starting a blog from scratch seemed like more than I can handle right now. 

So here's my idea.  And here's where I want input.

I'm thinking of making The Shabby Nest more of a lifestyle blog.  I'm hoping to add fashion and beauty into the mix along with design.

What are you thoughts?  I'd sure like to hear. Pretty please with sugar on it. ;)
