Welcome 2017

Happy New Year!!! Thank you for bearing with me while I took a little break during the holidays, but I’m back now and ready to write, research, and share with you. I have to admit that I feel like I’m entering 2017 without much of a plan, I know some things I want to look into and share on the blog this year as well as projects I want to undertake and share with you but other than that I don’t have much of an idea of where to go or what to do. Here’s what I do know, there are a ton of projects we want to do around our house, some large and some small, and I definitely want to get some (or all) of them taken care of this year.

We need new windows in our house, we need and want new french doors leading from our living room out to the backyard, I want to finish redoing our master bedroom, I have several pieces of art I want to get framed this year, I want to paint some pieces of furniture, I want to convert one of the bedrooms into a walk-in closet for the master bedroom, we need to finish replacing the fence around our back yard (we did 1/3 of it in the fall). We have a plan for re-doing our kitchen and I really want that to happen but we haven’t decided if this is the year yet, I think part of the problem is committing and knowing what kind of mess we will have to deal with and live in when it starts, UGH!!!

As far as the blog I want to create a lot more and share that with you, you really seem to enjoy when I share things I have designed and created. I have a friend who has challenged me to create one Christmas ornament a month this year and share it on the blog, then when Christmas 2017 gets here we would have 12 new ornaments, I’m going to take you up on this Paul!!!!!

I’m also considering opening my own Etsy site, I have a lot of ideas of things I would like to make for holidays and sell. Of course, I’ll keep sharing new looks and ideas with you from the worlds of design and art and introduce you to people who make amazing things happen, so I hope you’ll continue to check in with me every day in 2017 and see what’s going on in my personal world and the design world. Have a great day and year and as always Enjoy!!!

Words are my own.
