As a chronic goal setter I must admit that I love the hope that comes with a new calendar year. I don’t know when in history making resolutions became a thing to do- but I am grateful for the reminder that a new habit can be learned, a skill can be sharpened, a course can be charted even if it does take a ball dropping to make me (finally) do it.

Before I ramble on about my resolutions, I’m excited to take a look at all the gifts I was given in 2012. Thanks for being a part of it- here we go, in no particular order:

My daughter got a “big girl” room. It was about time- poor girl had been living in a beige personality-less room for far too long. So much fun to create this for her.

And made these for Habitat for Humanity, and spoke for the first time on the Home Show stage:

I Dabbled in my round up of fav products for Dabble Magazine (here I am at the EQ3 opening shot by the lovely Katherine Holland):

And all in all had a lot of fun. Lastly, a great gift I was given in 2012- my beautiful mother, pictured below in this awesome vintage pic which I have learned was her bedroom growing up (I must have inherited her love of drapery, and upholstery- note the matching bench- so awesome) battled breast cancer AGAIN after ten years remission. And with class and grace she won:
