Interview with Shari from Little Blue Deer
Little Blue Deer was love at first site for me (get it, site?). As soon as I looked at the design, the content, the personalized messages on each post I just knew I'd be checking this blog every day. And I do. "Little Blue Deer is a lifestyle, design, & inspiration source. I'm trying to live more beautifully... one day at a time", Shari Miller, the creative mind behind the blog, writes. I wanted to know more about this unique designer so I decided to interview her and share what I found with you. Some things I learned: she is as genuine, well spoken, as straight and to the point as I had always imagined. She says so much in so little, which truly is a gift.

1. How long have you been blogging?
I started Little Blue Deer on February 14, 2010 (it has turned out to be a Valentine's present to myself!)
2. What got you into blogging?
I have always loved interior design and DIY, and I began poking around the blogosphere looking for inspiration for our own home. Of course, it took about a minute for me to decide to start Little Blue Deer!
3. Where does your inspiration come from?
I find inspiration everywhere. My rule for blog posts is, if I don't absolutely love the image, it doesn't go up. So basically Little Blue Deer is a collection of images that touch my heart and appeal to me aesthetically.
4. What do you do for a living?
I wish I blogged for a living! My husband and I own a coffee shop and roasting company. We operate it together and I am responsible for a lot of the marketing and all of the graphic design. I am a self-taught graphic artist and I freelance when I can.
5. Do you have any goals when it comes to your blog?
See my first sentence above! I also try to incorporate as much of my own design as possible into my blog, I think of it as somewhat of a portfolio.
