I T S C R A Z Y


source

i am going to try to leave the sap story at the front door. but for real, 2010 has by far been my favorite year in a long time. i had dinner with jen last night and said "the best thing i ever did for myself was start a blog." it really has changed my life! is that so crazy? well i don't care if it is. i have met some of the most ridiculously talented people, poured my inspiration heart all over the internet on a daily basis, found out who i really am in this big huge design world, evolved like crazy, stuck to my guns, did a whole lotta things i didn't think i could do, i mean the list goes on and on...

i am so beyond beyond beyond grateful that some of you guys come stop by my blog every day to find inspiration! it feels so satisfying to share my voice and my opinion with everyone. your support & sweet comments mean everything to me. thank you for all that trust. in 2011 i am going to spread these little wings a little further and i am taking all of you with me.

so yes, i kinda hope my 2011 looks like this oversize, decorated, weird & beautiful swan. and i hope yours looks like whatever your mind dreams it to be. happy new year, friends.

Thank you for "pouring your inspiration heart all over the Internet". The creativity and simpleness of your stunning designs helps me to focus on a daily basis. It's a tough, competitive world for designers of all kinds and we should all inspire each other as you do for us.

How inspiring! I could only be so lucky if my 2011 is even a 1/4 as successful and amazing as your 2010. Here's to hoping!
