So You Think You're A Designer

My picks from Olioboard.

Months ago, Heidi, my mommy-blogging friend from Minnesota Mom introduced me to 'Olioboard.' Well, I never got a chance to visit until yesterday. Oh. My. Gosh. The interior designer/decorator in me was ecstatic!

It's like Fashion Plates, but for furniture. (Remember those? I think they've revived them, but I used to play with Fashion Plates all the time as a young girl.)

Olioboard is so fun and so free! Just join their community and you'll get to pick out the room background, the furniture and all the accessories. You could waste hours and hours (not that I did) playing around on this site, picking out all your favorite items, moving them around and re-sizing them. Cool.

When you're done, you can choose to share it with the community or keep it for yourself (and upload it to your blog.) Your 'room' is a downloadable JPEG format.

Check it out at Enjoy!
