The Year Ending

This past year has been a tough one.  I am so looking forward to the New 2012.  In planning and reviewing my work I have been a little chaotic in the collections, I guess as part of the mixed up year I have had, but the current group is really coming together.

So, what was your year about?  I will see you all for a fresh start.

Holiday Decorating

It has been so busy with all the last minute shows and sales.  I am slowly getting the home decor started.  I usually do my holiday decorations over a few weeks as I get inspired.  We have family staying with us for an extended visit, so it is taking a little longer for everything.

It is different this year with my studio being in the main area of the house, so that will reflect my display and all as well.

My color palette for this season is a little off the usual Christmas Red and Pine Green.  I am also comitted to using/making only things I have on hand.  There is so much inspiration out there, I do want it to be bold but simple.

Mood Monday

In prepartaion for the Holidays, I need to clean and rework my spaces, to decorate and for visitors.  I think I need to make an inspiration board.  With so many things going on, it helps me to have a visal plan.

Off to another busy week, here with deliveries and all.  What is going on with you, the season is near?

This is a beautiful mood board.
