Hello 2014.

Last New Year, I posted about making 2013 awesome.  The background of that image is a large canvas that hangs in my dining room wall.  It used to be soft shades of pink, blue, gold and white but now it looks like the above.  The appearance is much bolder now and doesn't really make sense to anyone but me.  And I can't help but notice that much like this painting, I have evolved too.  The more I experience and the more I learn, the louder and bolder my voice becomes.

Over the past year, I have pushed myself way out of my comfort zone.  I've taught myself how to be uncomfortable because every time I did that or took a chance on something I loved, something great happened.

When I started this blog, I had no idea where it would take me.  I had no goals and no plan.  The only thing I was sure of was my excitement to express my creativity and finally share what I love.  And if people actually liked it, bonus!

So besides eating my way through the holidays (I'm talking extra poundage.  My jeans are feeling mighty snug), I had a chance to reflect, re-charge and gain new inspiration for some exciting events, projects and opportunities in the year ahead.  I will be marrying the love of my life this year and I have some very exciting projects that I can't wait to share with you all!

Thanks again to everyone who has supported me and continue to read my blog.  I have met so many talented people over the past year who inspire me and teach me things without even knowing that they do.  I can't wait to see what new challenges and opportunities await all of us.  I hope to keep creating, sharing and doing what makes me happy.  I hope you'll continue with me on this journey!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

merry christmas, loveonsunday It's crunch time, people.  Only 2 days left before Christmas and I hope all of you are sitting at home (with power!), warm and toasty with a cup of hot chocolate.  I will be spending the next couple of days wrapping presents, baking, sewing and enjoying some quality time with my family and friends.  I will be unplugging the laptop until the new year- a much needed break and I'm so looking forward to it!

Thanks to all of you for your continued support and encouragement.  You have all made this year a successful and memorable one for me.  I wish you and your families an awesome Christmas and may the holidays refresh your spirit and bestow upon you new inspiration, love, happiness and good health in the New Year!
