farewell and a look back on 2010

It's hard to believe it's the end of 2010. Where did the time go? I guess I've been busy this year, writing this blog, building my design business, and finishing projects—and dreaming of new ones—in my own home. I want to say a heartfelt thank you to each and every one of you for reading, following, and taking some moments to tell me what you're thinking. Your friendship and feedback keep me going! I am a lucky girl.

So where did the year go?! Here's a month-by-month look at what I was up to.

In January, I was inspired by the simple, easy artwork of framing fabric.

In February I put together some items to help you get the look of one of my favorite spaces.

March was about inspiration too, and found me writing about one of my favorite design elements: baskets.

In April I revealed my bathroom makeover.

I headed outside and took you on a tour of my garden in May.

In June I summed up my design style in just one picture.

In July I put together a fun design board for a reader's daughter headed off to college.

I revamped my front porch in August.

I took you on a tour of my home office in September.

In October I was back from Italy with lots of pictures to share.

In November I finally revealed my big kitchen makeover on a tiny budget.

And finally, this month I was busy with diy projects for myself and my family, like my bedroom curtains, a fabric message board, and Christmas stockings from a vintage quilt.

Wow, looking back it's easy to see it's been a busy year! I am so looking forward to many more inspirations, projects, and challenges next year—and most importantly to sharing all of that with you, dear readers and fellow blog friends, who keep me motivated, encouraged, and inspired to do more and achieve more every day. Thank you, and happy new year!
