Reflections on 2011

Thank you all for helping make 2011 a special year. My kids have grown another year older (while it seems I have aged 5 times as much this year. C’est la vie.) and I couldn’t be more proud or happier to be their mom.

They were real troopers on the flight to visit my husband’s family in Perth, Australia. Here they are asleep during our 7 hour delay in Dubai.

On that same trip they were great sports when I did a little design shopping on Beaufort Street in Perth. I feel so lucky we had the chance to make this trip this year.

I am also grateful for how busy Sea Green Designs has been this year. My business is a labor of love, and I am glad so many people like what I do. Below is a collage of a few vignettes in the shop through the year.

And just a few of the floor plans from many of the design projects I was so fortunate to work on.

I’m also very lucky I get to put my hands to work in some great spaces with decorative paint finishes. These are just a few where I actually got some before and after shots.

I could go on and on about about how lucky I’ve been to be involved in so many great projects this year, but I just want to thank you all for the love and support. Especially to my wonderful family who help make my dreams come true everyday.

I hope 2012 will be a Wonderful New Year for you all.
