2015 Year in Review

A fresh year has begun, and I am so excited about everything I have planned for 2016. Last year will be hard to beat- here’s my highlight reel.

And in the Fall, we were named finalists in the Martha Stewart American Made Contest. We traveled to New York City to attend the first FOOD52 Makers Convention as well as the Martha Stewart American Made Summit.

We have been part of the Martha Stewart American Made Market for a few years, and at the Summit, it was announced that the market moved to it’s new home on Amazon Handmade.

 

 

During the Holiday season, my zodiac spoons were featured in PEOPLE StyleWatch Magazine:

The year closed with a bang when our custom cutting board was featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show for the special 12 Days of Christmas series.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Needless to say, 2016 has some pretty big shoes to fill. After all the excitement and indulgence of the holiday season, I am taking some time to relax, eat right, make it to the gym, and all the usual January stuff. I am already filling in this year’s planner, and I think 2016 is already shaping up to be my best yet.

Make Something

Every day we make hundreds of things. We make decisions, we make appointments, we make the bed. What if you chose three things to make today that will leave you feeling fulfilled? What would you make? What if you did that again tomorrow and every day after that? They don’t have to be huge or life changing, they just have to nurture you. Think of what your life would look like in a month if every day you consciously chose to nourish what matters most to you.
