FAQ

How do I get in touch with you?
Contact me right here and I'll be happy to get back to you.


What paint colour are you using in your living/dining room? What paint colour did you use in your mudroom?
I used Benjamin Moor Thunder in living/dining room as well as our hallways and playroom. I used Benjamin Moore Blue Echo in our mudroom and our powder room. We use Aura paint in flat on all of our walls, even with two kids it washes off very well.

Where did you get that red bench in your mudroom?
The bench is an IKEA lack shelf which we flipped horizontally and added five castors (5th in middle/back for extra support). I don't believe they make that model anymore, but the Expedit could be an alternative.

Do you accept guest blogs?
My blog deals with my life and experiences. At this time a guest blog or contributor doesn't fit my content. However, if you have an idea that you think I'd like, I am happy to discuss.

Do you guest blog?
Yes. I've done a couple of posts for other blogs and am happy to participate if my style fits the blog. See the Fishly News Elsewhere page for more details on where I've been posting.

Do you feature your home on other sites?
Yes. Go the Fishly News Elsewhere page so see where my home was featured.

Can I use your photos?
All photos, unless credited otherwise, are taken by myself and copyrighted. Feel free to blog my photos, except the ones of my children, but make sure to link back to Fishly News. You may not use my photos in a commercial fashion.

What camera do you use?
I use an 'old' Nikon D200. Most photos on this blog are taken with that camera and a 50mm lens. I might use a wide angle lens occasionally or take photos with my iPhone and a 'really old' Sony point and shoot.

Do you use Photoshop?
No. I use Aperture to store and edit my photos. I use Picnik to create my collages. I use PicMonkey for collages and text overlays.
