Happy first Friday of the year!

And it came so quickly!  That’s the best news of all.

I can’t say this without Mark looking like he might cut me (he had to work) but it was a little rough to get back into the groove after having had almost a week and a half of vacation (my life is so hard!).  Early mornings, trying to eat right again… boo-hoo to me, I know… but I do have to say that seeing all of you again has been entirely wonderful.  I’m looking forward to a fantastic new year and hoping that each and every one of you had an amazing holiday season!  Here on the blog — it’s good to be back.

Here are the first few things I’m loving for 2013…

Because everyone else is sharing salads and kale chips… kit kat cheesecake bars and cookie shakes.

Oregon obvs — One more year!

I know the holidays are over, but I just love this little gathering so much I had to share.

2012 favorites from This is Our Jam.

An Illustrator how-to.

A few super cool e-course suggestions.

And if you’re looking for e-courses, this one looks pretty amazing too.

It’s an older DIY but I’m dying to do this.

(Now where to put the chair?)

    It has definitely been hard to get back into the swing of things–but such loveliness makes it a whole lot easier!

    I have so many DIYs planned for this year… and that chair is now one of them :)

    It really is hard to get back into the groove after time off.

    The chair DIY is a lot of fun! I’m redoing a chair in my craft room soon too! Hopefully it will turn out as good as that one.
