how to ensure you keep getting emails from the life creative

Hello Creatives!

A big thank you for your support of TLC blog this past year. As you know, The Life Creative has a glorious new-look website to make interacting and reading even better than before!

In moving over to the new-look blog, sadly a new ‘follow’ button had to be implemented, which means you’ve not been getting emails from me for the past week or so.

It would be fab if you could hit the new-look blog and enter your email address into the ‘follow’ button – it’s in the bottom right of the screen and looks like this:

A big thank you for all your support so far! I’m very much looking forward to my posts hitting your inbox once again and always welcome your feedback on the blog and social media.

Happy decorating,
Chris

How glorious then that Oz Design and I are teaming up to have you win one (I’m going to live vicariously through you because my couch is refusing to allow another cushion on).
