Another year has come and gone. 2013 is going to be a really busy actioned packed year for us as we celebrate the fact I have been in business for 30 years. It seems like a long time and it is but I have really been doing what I love to do. I miss it when I’m not there and sometimes I have to admit I long not to be there and that is when I need to take a break and look and think about something new and then I am good to go again.
My focus this year is to celebrate with the design star staff that makes this shop as unique as it is. We work as a team and everyone brings there own expertise to the table and with that said we have developed a recognizable style we all find great comfort in and our customers can rely on. We have some great events planned and will be releasing 3 – 4 special commemorative quilts during the year.
A New Year is a great opportunity for us all to pare down and find our style. The decorating options are endless for you to Create Your Own Comfort Zones so our job will be to give you some great new inspiration and we are all up to that challenge. I have been moving the shop all around to show off all of the new home decor coming in from our market. I love the style and think you will too. Grey is the new neutral. Things are vintage and a bit industrial looking but fit into primitive and contemporary life styles thus a new new country style emerges for us to find our balance in.
I find myself excited as I start out the new year because in the depths of winter as we look outside we have the opportunity to recreate that calming palette we see. It is clean and to me that really means lighter and softer but it can also give you a wonderful sense of homespun warmth. Winter can be a time of splendid isolation, you can hunker down quilt, stitch, read, and cook. Let’s make a pack to make this happen and see if our creativity sores.
I am kind of into layering and stacking just organizing better. I think this is the year I will even start my bucket list. I have not really taken the time to do that either. I do love my home and imagine most of you do to. It takes moving things around, paring down, reinventing just making some simple changes that revitalize your living space. Painting is probably the most dramatic and easy way to create change. By keeping things neutral and your colors consistant you can create a gentle elegance that will help you stay grounded.
So, Happy 2013!
