I just had someone from Target reach out to me. Thank you everyone for your support and love, it means the world to me! You guys have no idea. Really.
I almost am at a loss for words writing this post. So lets just start off with my favorite way shall we?
Yesterday afternoon I was working like a mad woman finishing up a few projects before I head out of town. Out of the blue I started receiving this HUGE influx of emails and messages and tags on Social Media. They were all saying the same thing. Target is copying you!
I was like WHAT? And clicked over to see this image running on all of their social media channels and as ads on Facebook:
I mean. Wow. Right?
If you are new to Vintage Revivals, you may have missed my daughter Dylan’s bedroom. Which looks like this:
I mean, granted I dont have a cool GIF or anything, (lets be honest…no one wanted to see what that room looked like while it was coming together, it was not a pretty sight.) But that is 100% Vintage Revivals. Down to the white floors and striped rug.
So here is the thing.
I love what I do. And I create content so that people are inspired by it.
I also LOVE Target. Like 4x a week love. So I’m hoping what yesterday’s post on @Targetstyle’s instagram means, is that they’re as much a fan of mine as I am of theirs. I think they are an incredibly forward thinking retailer in terms of working with bloggers and giving them a fantastic platform to share their ideas.
I appreciate the outburst of love and support, and while I’m overwhelmed with everyone’s encouragement, it’s nice to know that brands like @Targetstyle are paying homage to us DIY-ers out there. Its the best feeling in the world to know that so many people have my back! (Double fist pound. Explode it.)
Here is what I have to say to my future besties at Target,
The fact that you saw something on Vintage Revivals that inspired your image is the highest form of flattery, but now big red bullseye, let’s turn this into something bigger! I’m asking you to attribute your image to me, and bring me on board! I love doing what I do and I would love to do it with you! This awesome room makeover is just one of many, and I have meeeellions of ideas that I would love to collaborate with you on.
Bloggers are huge supporters of Target, myself included. Please don’t leave this unfriendly taste in our mouths. You understand more than most the power behind creative people. I want to shop at your store. I want to inspire my readers with treasures from Target because I love finding inspiration there. I want to show the world that they can take something from Threshold and create magic with it. Target I love you, but we need to do this the right way.
So will you guys help me get their attention? Share this post, tag them like crazy, lets show them the excitement and power behind Fearless DIY! Lets make something amazing come from this lemon, are you up for it?!
