A Year in Review

Another year has come and gone...another year of blogging, creating and sharing amazing memories with some incredible people.


In January, I was Freshly Launched by LaunchHER, which was a pretty huge accomplishment. It's crazy to look back a full 12 months later and see just how far my work and focus has come!

I also upcycled some jars, and shared fun crafts with you!


I started sculpting accessories and pendants in February, and rekindled my love with clay.

I also wrote for fashion houses Matthew Williamson and Stella McCartney!


The colder weather of Canadian March brought DIY Cake Stands, sponsorships with the Road to 30, and a vlog Guest Room Makeover.


BlogHer'12 took centre stage in April, as did my first of many celebrity designs with my journal and cocktail ring designed for Tenley Molzahn.


I was busy in May prepping for my son's 2nd birthday party designing for Ashley Greene, and creating pendants for the grand opening of the Carolinian Winery.


In June, I answered some questions about me...what makes me amazing {do people really think that? Gees!} and what was my first piece of art.

And I got a little sentimental about my Bear turning 2.


In July, BlogHer12 prep was in full swing and the butterflies were floating around my tummy.


Only the time of my life...BlogHer12 in New York City. Three days with the most amazing people I've ever met....loads of laughs, late night dancing, a little learning, and tonnes of perspective.

I also designed for celebs Tina Fey, Leah Remini and Keira Knightley!


I turned the big 3-0 in September, and had an awesome time at the party that my husband spent nearly 9 months planning!

It was also a month for blog redesign, visiting the home decor store Linen Chest, designing for Emily Blunt, and Mama's Night Out at the Western Fair.


Topping off at a record 34 blog posts, October brought some creative writing {that I hope to develop!}, posts about fashion inspiration, and the continuation of a blog series on the principles and elements of art.


Another 34 posts in November, and I was busily prepping for Christmas with friday decor posts, DecoArt projects  and a free winter printable that has gone off the charts on Pinterest!


It has been anything but quiet around here. Last minute gift ideas with DecoArt, clothing reviews, and more talk about the elements of art.

What will 2013 bring? Weekly fashion features, a new series about the Voice behind the Blog {aka: me getting really honest about what I am doing to set a healthy and positive example for my son}, elements and principles of design features, more projects with DecoArt, and monthly home decor projects in the New Year New Home series!

Hi!!! Remember me, your cab buddy to the airport after BlogHer 12? LOL! How in the WORLD did it take me 4 months to get to this blog? I am so sorry! I just followed all your SM stuff so I am sure to stay in touch.

2013 will ROCK! I'm still on the fence about Chicago BlogHer, but will probably end up going LOL :)
