Farewell to 2009! Hello to 2010!

Wow, another year has passed by...2009 was an interesting year for me - I celebrated my 2-year wedding anniversary, turned 29, welcomed my beautiful niece Skye into the world (my sister's 4th child), continued taking new design clients, launched my online retail shop (my dream!), squeaked by financially in this tough economy without loosing anything major, remained healthy (never even got a cold! knock on wood..) and for the most part, kept a positive and optimistic attitude through a few rough patches! God has truly blessed me and I thank him for all of the wonderful people in my life - my husband, family and friends :) How was your 2009? Good, bad, uneventful? Glad it's over? I want to thank each and every one you for your continued support of belle maison - it's because of you that I continue blogging away about my passion for design and beautiful things! In looking back at all of the posts I published this past year, here's a round-up of ones that you seemed to enjoy the most! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! I wish you all the best in 2010! Cheers!

  1. Julie, you're such an inspiration to me. We're the same age, but it seems like you've really LIVED, you know? I admire your passion to your craft during a tough economic time. LOVE the blog!

    I noticed several of your images are from Blueprint. Why in the heck did they discontinue that mag? It was my favorite. I have the jewelry storage ideas in my Inspiration Notebook here at home. Thanks for reminding me!

  2. Love all the images! Just discovered your site recently and reading backwards. Happy 2010!

  3. Love this year in design you've done! Happy New Year - wishing you a FAB 2010!
