Friends. Here’s something new that I’ve been dying to share with you: Today, I launched a new video series on Babble!

The series is called Celebrations with Design Mom (just like the name of my Babble column). And the videos will cover everything that falls under the umbrella of celebrating. Baby showers and birthday parties. Holidays and special days (like the First Day of School). Even family gatherings and movie parties. All the fun stuff!

At the end of last month, I mentioned working with a video crew, and this was the project. We filmed 7 episodes that week and I get to share the first 3 this week. (It’s going to be video overload around here. Hah!) Take a look at the first episode. I really hope you enjoy it:

Confession: After all of the Olive Us episodes I thought I was used to working on videos, but it was a totally different feeling being in front of the camera instead of working behind the scenes. I was so nervous. Tiger in a Jar was the video crew and they did an amazing job. The videos are gorgeous! But even knowing how talented the video team is, and that they wouldn’t make anything that wasn’t lovely, this is still one of those projects where I have butterflies in my stomach, because I’m putting myself out there and trying something new. (Those darn butterflies!)

If you have ideas for future episodes, please feel free to leave a comment below. I’m totally craving feedback!
