The Workout of My Life!

Girls, I got my behind (literally) kicked today at the gym. My good friend Kim (who doesn't have a blog, or I would have linked it right here!) (oh yea and her wonderful husband Tony...) Drug me to this place Maltese CrossFit yesterday to take a look and today I'm dying. Seriously I've never had a work out that took me the entire day to recover! Tomorrow.......well I just can't even think about that right now. It's is going to be a great year! My goals for the year (a six pack and to run a half marathon)! We'll see how that works out!

Thanks Kim......and Tony!

Sugar Blossom Palette

I am really excited about all the wonderful possibilities for 2011. It is always exciting to start off the new year with a fresh clean canvas and watch how it transforms throughout the year! I started my fresh 2011 canvas with finishing up my next fabric line Sugar Blossom for Henry Glass. We are waiting for our first round of strike offs. For those of you who don't know what a strike off is they are small (sizes may vary) pieces of fabric that the mill prints off for our review. The transition of color from paper to fabric isn't a perfect science it takes time and patience! (I'm always lacking both!) At this point changes are made mostly in color. We might go back and fourth a few times which takes almost 2 months to complete. It's really quite an exciting process. Here is the palette for Sugar Blossom

If all goes well, my fingers and toes are crossed, I will have fabric a month before Market which means alot of work, but better yet it means I will get to have my booth designed out of nothing but Sugar Blossom! Thanks Henry Glass, you guys are awesome! I wish you all a fresh and exciting 2011!

Happy New Year!

I hope you all have had a fabulous and safe New Years Eve Celebration! We went out and wished my baby brother a happy 30th birthday last night, then settled in at home. My 15 year old woke me up at 5 minutes after twelve with a cell phone call to open the door and 5 boys played xbox until around 5 am. Teenagers! I'm still getting acclimated to being a mother of a teenage boy!

I've been pondering my New Year resolutions......it's almost a 100% failure rate for me. So do I pick something that I know I can't do and try it for a few days, or just go on trying to do my best at most things and only achieving greatness in one or two things. I've been trying to quit drinking Dr. Pepper all year! I quit for a week or two and then I'm back to, I'll just have one when I'm stressed syndrome! Well you probably know the drill from there. I'm hooked for a couple weeks and then try again. This year I think I'm going to try and not worry what people think and be happy with who I am. Focus on being a better mother and let the rest fall where it falls. So what about you? What are your New Year resolutions?

Hope you all have a wonder, safe and memorable 2011!
