First-time Fan Jitters

Design Sponge Seattle

me with Grace Bonney

Meeting Grace Bonney at Anthropologie in Seattle was a huge thrill! I got to go to the book signing part of the Design Sponge Book Tour, and I was very nervous as I stepped into the second place in line. Having no idea what to say, I rambled on about the dresser that I had painted and how her blog had inspired me.

I have never gotten all starry-eyed about a celebrity before, but after meeting Grace and having her sign my book, I was ecstatic. The high lasted for hours. Yes, it was a bit ridiculous, but I don’t care.

Now I know what it’s like to be a fan.
