Wishing you all a year to celebrate!

As we bid adieu to 2011,  I reflect on a year I will always remember.  A year full of new beginnings, dreams come true, and the ups and downs of life and business that have made me feel stronger than ever.

  One of my greatest successes in my professional life is my new relationships that have developed throughout the year of 2011. Whether you're a new found friend, a fellow dealer, a blogger, or a customer; you have all made a significant difference in my world and I thank you for truly touching my life in 2011. 

When I think of the many possibilities that 2012 holds for us, I feel excitement for what's ahead. I believe that 2012 will be a year that strengthens our lives, despite our existing weaknesses.  A year of continued success for some, as well as newfound success for others.  A year where we no longer look back, we only face forward, where we tackle our fears and overcome our tribulations, whatever they may be.  Always remembering along the way to take the time to appreciate what we have and whom we share it with. 

Wishing you all, a year to celebrate.... Cheers to 2012!

WEEK 6 GIVEAWAY.....Hosted by The Junk Girls

The final week of our Giveaway is being hosted by two very talented women...

For those of you that don't know them. They are Jenny K and Melissa. 

Jenny K, Melissa and I at the Grand Opening of A Beautiful Mess

This piece was created by Jenny K special for the lucky  Beautiful Mess  week 6 winner!

Here's what Jenny K has to say about her beautiful piece of art:

I call this piece "Amelia" and have done numerous iterations of it, as it's always a favorite for me. This piece is crafted using  an antique mahogany photo enlarger section as the frame, the back panel is recycled zinc with an amazing patina that reminds me of clouds in the sky. The little airplane is an antique cast metal toy and the quote is housed in a recycled ring and covered with an antique watch crystal from France.

Retail Value is $285.00
