1.11.11 {Birthday luck?}

We'll I'm back from the Holidays. Finally getting around to blogging again. 2011 is already off to a great start. I sent out my first proposal of the year today and have a new client meeting this Friday. I couldn't be happier, not to mention it's my birthday! Having a birthday on 1.11.11, could this be good luck? Maybe it's my year? Lucky #1. What's that you say? Ranked #1 Bay Area Designer in 2011? Maybe #1 mom! Wishful thinking, but whatever the meaning...it's my year. 2011 here I come. :]

To kick off the new year, I've made a list of things to do. Numero 1 on the list is stenciling our backsplash. I started the project this weekend. Here's a snap shot of the progress. Now imagine 3 stainless steel shelves with cute solid navy, white and orange dishes. Can't wait to show you the completed project. The shelves will free up some much needed cabinet space for our accruing sippy cup collection, and well the stencil will bring some much needed design and texture into the room. 

And at last a current print I'm lusting after. If I had a wish for my birthday, it would be purchasing this print to hang above my sofa. Not sure why I love this print by Sharon Montrose, but it's awesome. She's amazing. The cow is also good luck. Here's a list of animal symbolism of the cow. :] 

  • Patience
  • Nourishment
  • Abudance

  • Possibility
  • Calming

Give me all of the above please!  So here's to 1.11.11 and the year 2011! See you soon!
