A New Year...

Happy New Year friends!
Happy New Year to our fabulous followers and all pinners worldwide. Have a wonderful new year, cheers!
 I can't believe we're almost at the end of January already...where did it go?!  At the beginning of the month I sat in my new studio (photos coming soon!) and worked on my 2015 goals for Summerland Homes & Gardens.  2014 was a good year with multiple projects and lots of learning experiences (some good & some not so good!)  As I'm "in the trenches" running a design business, I'm trying to find the best way to streamline my business, manage projects, take my organizational skills up a notch and successfully market my company.  So I've been doing lots of planning for Summerland and am very excited for this year and what it's going to bring. Having your own business is A TON of work, but I LOVE it! I love the creative process, working with my clients, and seeing my visions come to life.

 I also created these vision boards to be inspired and stay focused on my goals (both personal & professional) and to remind me of some of the things I want to accomplish this year.

I'm also happy to announce that Summerland Homes & Gardens won Best of Houzz 2015! Great news to start this week!  Here's part of the press release...
