Well, here it is, January 29th, and I have no idea where has the first month of 2015 has gone. You may have noticed I’ve been absent for quite a while. I had every intention of starting fresh on the blog that first Monday in January, but between my day job and upholstery work, all my energy was gobbled up. And I definitely have had less than normal energy to start this month off. Perhaps it has something to do with the new diet I started in early December? Maybe you’ve heard of it. It’s called the Carb-Sugar-Salt diet. Here’s how it works…you eat white rolls, gumdrop cookies, crackers & dip every day and then barely exercise. After some time, your body will reject even the insinuation that you might try to accomplish anything.
But the good news is I’m back to eating healthier and working out, and my energy levels are much better. So, I am getting back to the blog and brainstorming fun new post ideas for 2015! And with a new year comes new goals and plans. And, sure, I have some, but what I think is most important for me to do this year is to be more grateful.

With that thought, I’m launching a little series that I’m calling the Gratitude Photo Project. I’m going to take photos each week of things, places, people I am grateful for.
I’ll be posting them once a week on the blog and I will also share periodically on social media so I hope you will share the photos of what you are grateful for too! We all benefit from reflecting on the good things in our lives. And as an added bonus I’ll get to practice using I my new fancy-pants DSLR camera. And I’m very grateful to finally have a real camera again.
I’m also grateful to be asked to participate in the Designer Insights series over at the Terry’s Blinds Blog which was posted last week. So many great designers, bloggers, creative minds have participated so you should definitely check it out.
Have a great day!
