Come Design My New Condo!

Since I'm on a "reality TV" kick ... who out there is watching Design Star on HGTV? I watched the first 2 seasons because I think it really is one of the best design competition shows out there, but this season, I HAVE to watch because one of the contestants is from Olathe, KS. Right near me! {She's #2 in the picture above.}


Her name is Jennifer, and we actually had one of our Masters classes together at the Edwards Campus a few years ago. Jennifer is a very talented painter and artist who used to teach art in the elementary school down the street from ours. She left teaching to open a design business with her husband, and her work is incredible!
Here is a picture of one of the room she did this season. She painted that print on the walls by hand. I love it. I'd also love for her to come help me get settled in my new digs. Too bad I'm working on a teacher's salary. :)


After tonight's show, we're down to the final three contestants. Jennifer is still in the game! I think the next challenge is when they typically go to 3 different cities to help 3 different families make over a room in their homes. Then, if she makes it to the final 2, they will have a challenge and America will vote for the winner. The winner ultimately gets their own show on HGTV. Pretty cool, huh?

Pin It!

That Tracee -- what a loser. Glad she's gone.

Call Jennifer's husband to see if he'll offer ideas only for $100! It's your brush with greatness!
