I am not much for pattern or color, but I think if you have visited here more than once you could probably gather that information on your own.  What I do love is anything animal related, antique engravings, a cheeky sense of humor and entrepreneurs that are truly creative.  I do believe that Abnormals Anonymous encompasses all of these things.  Have you heard of them before?  I accidentally came upon them this weekend and immediately wished I lived somewhere I could use their wallpapers, perhaps in Elle’s future big girl room? Or my studio?  Oh, even better how about a Besotted shop?  I think you get the picture, I like their offerings, but I like their cheeky nature even more.  You just need to read their ‘about’ page and you will understand what I mean.  I hope that this year I can find many more companies and people that will inspire, companies that are doing something creative but not taking themselves too seriously.  My favorite quote from an editor on my own company described it as ‘elegance with a wink’,  I can’t tell you how much I loved that, I want to embody that with everything I do.  Well, being a new mom is not so elegant, I often have spit up on my person (usually in my hair) and we have already discussed that showering is a luxury, so there’s that.

Happy New Year everyone, I can’t wait to see how this year unfolds!  Do you have any big plans to make 2014 your best year ever? Any 365/52 week projects that you might be starting? If so let me know, I am ever curious and would love to know what you have planned!

  1. I love this wallpaper!! Unfortunately too pricey for me but I can’t wait to see what more you will find for us in 2014.
    For 2014 I plan to finish things, going to try to conquer all those WIP.
    Happy New Year!
