I really enjoy decorating. It's super fun. I'm not very good at the details but I like getting big stuff and then slowly piecing it together. My downstairs room has been a real tricky room to figure out what to do with but I've finally decided to make it a dining room with a spa feel. I have most of the big pieces but now I really need to fill it up with lots more stuff to make it a bit more cozy. I don't like a lot of stuff so my house is very open and free of clutter but this room is gonna need to be filled up for it to be comfy.
Just yesterday I got this rug. It's handmade in Afghanistan and I did a little wheeling and dealing with the guy. I bargain for everything now. It's really fun and it was cool b/c he asked me what I did for a living and I never know what to tell people anymore so I just told him I was in software and he said "oh I want to make a website for my business" and I was like no way. Let's swap. I need another rug for upstairs and rugs are crazy expensive so I'm gonna whip him up a Showit site and get a rug. Very cool.
We've been really stoked at how many people are using Showit to build new businesses or as an extra product in their business. Several web designers have popped up because now someone doesn't need to know code anymore and I know of a few photographers who have sold their photography services along with a website so it's cool to think of a website as another product you can offer potential clients or just use it to barter and get free stuff!
