A look back on 2016 and what lies ahead for 2017

January is always a time to reflect on the past year, and an opportunity to look towards the future. 2016 was a big year of "firsts" for me with a lot of changes professionally, and 2017 will be a big year of changes for me personally, but before I open up that can of worms, lets take a look back on the events that made 2016 memorable around here.

In October, I completed my very first One Room Challenge and made over my Master Bedroom.

My most popular DIY project was this felted ball mobile that I made for my sweet nephew. 

I also launched my own Society 6 Shop and am now selling my artwork on prints, canvases and pillows just to name a few!

And speaking of launches, my biggest accomplishment in 2016 was the launch of my brand new website and Design Business.


Its been an incredible ride so far and the response has been more than I can ask for! I've been very busy and am learning to adjust being a work from home Mom. I'm blessed to have had some amazing opportunities come my way in 2016 and I plan on sharing some of those successes with you soon. 

So, what about that can of worms?! Well, one of those amazing opportunities has lead us to take a leap of faith and start a new path with a new opportunity that will take us back to Canada. We are planning on moving this summer, so that means I will be hard at work getting the house ready and tackling a few more room makeovers (and a possibly my second go at the One Room Challenge!)  In the meantime, I will still be working full steam ahead to grow my Design Business! Thats the beauty of E-Design..I can work on your project wherever life may take me. 

I'd love for you to follow along on this new adventure with me and my family, so make sure to follow me on instagram or Facebook. And if E-Design sounds like something that might interest you, read more about it here.

Wishing you all the best in 2017!
