Can you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a 35 year old administrative assistant in the legal department at an international corporation that makes household items. Given my fairly uncreative day-job, the use of the Sims 2 has been my creative outlet, although I really should be working on a novel instead. Shhhhh. In addition, I have been married for what will be 5 years this summer, and we live in CT with our four pet rabbits and a cat, and a house that is need of a bunch of repairs, so I'm avoiding that whole mess by making pretty things on my computer instead.
How long have you been a member here and what is your main reason for entering DOTY?
I've been a member since March of 2009, but I was a bit of lurker prior to joining in on the fun. I really became active on the site when I was unemployed and needed a stress release while searching for a new gig. However, it's the continued fun of entering BPS contests that has me entering contests here still, and the main reason for me entering this one again--I learned so much last year by viewing the many talented designers, but I also learned to stretch my imagination and overcome some challenges to my normal way of decorating while having a great time doing it. I'm truly looking forward to experiencing that again with this year's contest.
Do you think you have what it takes to compete and get to the final?
Heh--I'll be thrilled if I make it to the 3rd round, let alone the final one. But I do think I have good ideas and try to keep all of my decorating realistic in the sense that it's something that I'd want to do in someone's real home, but still keep some sense of my own style as well.
Here is my application:
