It's been a wonderful year


2010. What a year. My husband and I had the worst financial year ever and we found that it was okay. Spending less turned out to be freedom. And required creativity. All good things. We put on a fabulous wedding that was simple and less expensive than I ever thought possible and I have never had more fun in my life then while I was planning that wedding with my daughter. And I have a new son (in law). Wow! I worked on some amazing projects and had the honor and privilege to be invited into the lives of so many wonderful families. I have watched and been a part of new homes being purchased, new businesses started, babies being born, kids moving out, bathrooms needing remodeling, kitchens updated, and countless living and family rooms, bedrooms and dining room remodels. I watched one of my houses being filmed for a television show (Dexter!) and I transformed another one into Emerald City. It has been a wonderful year.  



I want to thank all of you who read this blog, those of you who leave me encouraging comments and those of you who inspire me with what you do. I wish you all the best in 2011. I hope that you will be blessed with the things that really matter - love, hope, peace and joy. 

Here is a little treat for you. A good friend of mine works in advertising in London and one of her accounts is Ralph Lauren. Her team put together an amazing digital 4-D event celebrating ten years of barrier-breaking digital innovation at RalphLauren.com. In November their completed project with cutting-edge, architectural light-mapping technology was presented in front of a live audience at their iconic flagships stores at No. 1 New Bond Street in London and 888 Madison Avenue in New York. The world's first 4-dimensional experience featuring 3-D imagery, digital sound effects and scents from Ralph Lauren fragrances can be viewed in the video below. I hope you enjoy. You can read more about it here.

Hi Sherri, Thanks for coming by my blog and inviting me over. Your blog has a great look and style. I'll be following. What kind of a camera do you use? Your pics are crystal clear on the closeups. I enjoyed the pink post, what a clever idea of wrapping up the pink champagne!

We also had the worst year financially although our decline started early 2009. Things are starting to look up! You are right though, learning to do more with less money is liberating in a way. It certainly forces you to be creative! Hope 2011 is fantastic for both of us!! ;)

Wow... I almost cried with your post! Gee,, I guess I'm very emotional today! lol I truly understand what you say and we're having the same problems... may we all have a better year in 2011!!! :-) Don't we deserve it? :-)

Now, about one of your house being on Dexter??? Really? Which one? I'm a huge fan of the show. :-)

I also want to thank you so much for the wonderful blog you have. I love how explanatory it is, how much I learn here! And, on top of all, you're a very sweet person.
