The best of my 2011

Saturday, December 31, 2011

 

Deep breath....

I can't thank everyone enough for your sweet comments and emails. This week has been hard. Many of us have suffered loss. Thank-you for allowing me to share mine with you and thank-you for sharing your hurts with me. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Everyones doing it....so I am jumping on the recap blogwagon. Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we...  

In January, I showed you how I turned a dated apartment complex into an updated townhome with the tiniest of budgets and some house staging:

February, I gave you a tour of a clients mountain home that I was lucky enough to be involved with from the ground up : 

And, if you want to see some more, here is the post of the kitchen:

In March, I gave you a sneak peek into my own guest bathroom that I was finally redecorating. I was inspired by {out-of-my-price-range} Schumacher wallpaper:

In April, I brought you along on a day in my life: {well...sort of...}

In May, We took of a tour of a Paint-by-Numbers room I finished. I must say, I sort of love this room!

June brought us the completion of a fresh renovated kitchen in a clients mid-century modern home:

In July, I thought I might need to hospitalized due to this:

But, I got it together in time to take you into the clubhouse I completed at Bear Lake Reserve: 

In August, I shared pictures of the Medwest Gala, "Here's to Hollywood" at Harrah's Casino. Every year our fundraiser has a new theme:

I also invited you in to my completed Sharpie-drawn-wallpaper bathroom that was finally finished!

August was busy...I can't leave out my visit to the Cashiers Showhouse:

I was lucky enough to find myself vacationing in California in September. We hit up a lot of the beautiful coast and stayed in various places. Here you can see our visit to the chic Hotel Monaco.

In October, I got busy decorating for fall with some funkins:

As well as party rocking some Halloween costumes:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

November brought me to one of my favorite events--The Gingerbread Houses at the Grove Park Inn!

And a reveal of a clients newly renovated Guest room:

In December, I shared a way to jazz up your art work with ribbons:

 

Dang, that took a long time to put together--but, you're worth it *silly rainbow smiles*.

Woa!!! What a year! It's kind of fun to look back and remind myself of 2011's accomplishments. I look forward to all that 2012 has in store for all of us and I also look forward to having you here with me. Your encouragement means the world to me. You're the best.

Driving me crazy

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Tuesday night was spent something like this...



with some of this...



and there was also a whole lot of this...



and then a few hours later, we were back to this...



Why, you ask?
 
Because today was the day I was headed here with my baby daughter:




We got there at 8am. We were lucky in that we were the first ones to show up.
 But, {of course} we still had to wait. 
 The waiting only made me her that much more nervous.



Finally, when the DMV guys were finished with their games of Angry Birds,
they took her out for her driving test.

And within minutes, she was back.




She passed! Happy lobby dances began!





Then I had to stand and watch her drive away.




ALONE.



I desperately needed one of these.





Because I was back in this place.




So, then began some more of this.




And then I enlisted the help of all the neighbors.




And the neighbors, neighbors.



Another milestone.

This parenting thing is hard.
