A New Year!

It's a New Year!

A time for new beginnings and fresh starts.

Thank you Lord for new beginnings.

This year I'm getting out of my safe zone.

Decorating and colors that is.

Here are a just a few things I will add to my office/workspace.

Yes, I'm already hyperventilating just looking at the colors. Ha!

Speaking of colors, I have teamed up with Martha and Home Depot.

I have a new playground of paint!

I can't wait to share some fun new projects soon.

Here is just a smidge of what I'm working on now.

My closet.

My very small workspace closet.

The one where my husband held his breath while I ripped the doors off and yanked the shelves out of.

He's a good man.

Just held his breath.

I won't lie. I did too.

I have to make this one good.

Nothing like making my Man proud ;)

(Insert Tim the Tool man grunts).

But before I go and tackle this new year..

Laundry waits for no man!

Do you have some special projects for the New Year?

  1. Love the colors!!
    I stepped out of my box for Christmas and machine embroidered my
    Christmas cards. I was so pleased with the results that I am going to stitch all of my cards from now on. Birthday, Valentine's Day, Easter...everyone!! Fun stuff!

  2. I have a bathroom remodel going on as I type this! Here's to the new (new vanity, new tile, new light fixture, that is)!

  3. Happy New Year, Susie! Can't wait to see all of the fun things you do with that paint! 2012 is gonna be your year!!

  4. I love the colors! I'm kind of a classic, black, white, gray kind of girl, but life just needs some vibrancy sometimes, and I think you found the perfect colors for it!

  5. The colors in the top photo are TO.DIE.FOR!!! That green is my favorite color ever. I say go for it. You step out of that box & get crazy, girl! ;)

  6. I can't wait to see what you do. You are very talented.

  7. I love love the new colors; very nice! I can't wait to see them in the finished project! :)

    I am also anxious to see what you do and what you think of the Martha Stewart paint!

    Take care!!

  8. Can't wait to see what you do! Happy New Year!


  9. You always have the most darling ideas. I have quite a list on my plate for 2012..but #1 --> to sell my home and buy a bigger home for my growing family. But along with selling my home...I need to prep it for the sell. So much to do...and yet I find it all fun.


  10. Gotta love good men who encourage and tolerate our projects even when we are not totally sure of the direction we are going in. It would be fun to play with those Martha Stewart paints.
    I just posted about makeover plans for our basement guest suite that has been long overdue while I pondered what to do. Patched and walls cleaned today and I'm going to buy paint tonight or tomorrow.

  11. So exciting!!! I can't wait to see what you come up with. You will give me inspiration I am sure.

  12. Ah, the pesky laundry.


  13. Can't wait to see your new painted projects!! Heading to do laundry right now! Ugh!!

  14. Well... if it was up to me, there would be TONS of stuff going on here right now! Husband doesn't go along with my ideas as easily as yours! I can't wait to see what you do with those fabrics (and paint)!

  15. Can't wait to see what you have planned! I have a workshop/studio in the works but too cool to paint just yet! I too, will be looking to Martha and Sarah Richardson for some inspiration! Love your fabric!

  16. I know whatever you do will be fabulous! My main project is to get rid of our sofa and pare down the furniture in our living room. It's just a monstrosity that's falling apart and even slipcovering won't help it. We have a smaller love seat I can't WAIT to get my hands on to slipcover. Other than that, just tassel, tassel, tassel! Just sold my first one to Australia! Woot! :)

  17. I'm taking lots of pics of the bathroom remodel, don't you worry! Will hopefully get them up on the ol' blog sometime this weekend :)

  18. Getting ready to finally take on our Master Bath after living in our house for 11 years. Sadly we were the last in line. Don't know why that happens to us poor parents :)

  19. ohh!!! Im getting excited! cant wait to see what you come up with-im sure it will be fab!!

  20. I want to play that game too - my cans of paint have been calling to me all week - what is it about after christmas?!
    great colours, thank you

  21. I can't wait to see what you do. You are very talented.

  22. “Women really dress based on their body shape. For example, Black Bandage Dress I’m very athletic. I have bigger shoulders and bigger bust Herve Leger Dress and smaller in the hip area. So when it comes to Herve Leger, Dirndl Dress for me it’s really about A-line dresses because it gives me a hip but minimizes me on the top.”While there’s no doubt that Lubov and her husband, Max, design for women everywhere, you can’t help but imagine her stamping Halloween costumes a mini-claim on a certain white dress and capelet pair when it was in its early stages. It’s a look we can imagine every woman instantly coveting when it’s available in April.

  23. Change your mattress weekly and wash all mattresses, mattress covers, pillows and blankets in the hottest water possible, according to the manufacturer's washing instructions.
