The Hive girls, at Dilly Deli Tulsa. Where are the mimosas?

My obsession with blogs started with my wedding last year. One thing led to another and once the wedding was over, I found my tastes migrating to design, fashion and lifestyle blogs. As I read on, I noticed that while there was plenty to read about New York lofts, LA designers homes and even some charming Southern studios, there wasn’t much out there about the midwest and some of the oh-so cool “real” people that I have the opportunity to work with every day.
When I started mulling over the idea of creating my own, the idea seemed daunting – do I have the time, resources, or skills to produce something I will be proud of? What if people don’t like my ideas? What if it’s all been done before? Then I started thinking about all those oh-so-cool people and realized that with a group, we could produce more diverse, better content, connect with more people and most importantly – have way more fun working on it!
One of the biggest joys in my involvement with the design community over the years has been working within organizations to bring together groups of people and make things happen. I’ve seen amazing things come out of gatherings of just the right combinations of skills, perspectives and aesthetic sensibilities…which is exactly what I think we have gathered here at Prairie Hive. From a self proclaimed granola crafty type to the most stylish mom I know…from South Tulsa to Brady Heights, we’ve intentionally got a little bit of everything going into the mix here.
We are so excited to get this project off the ground, with the first step – our blog! Visit here daily for our of-the-moment inspirations and finds, great DIY ideas, a few field trips and anything else that buzzes through our minds.
Look for our online publication in May, where we will showcase some of the great design, folks and resources in our area and beyond…and hopefully give you a little inspiration along the way.
