(backgrounds – love making these)
i totally dropped the ball on gwen’s best of 2009 challenge, but thought i’d pick it back up! here we go:
best challenge: the one i’ve been talking about lately. the one about not getting swallowed up by one dimension of my life. the one about nurturing all parts of my life that speak to me, and not just one.
best album: hands down, blind pilot
best place: my tub, late at night. it’s where i do all my best thinking. i’ve been keeping a pen and paper by the tub, but i just learned about shower/tub crayons. i’m all over that.
best new food: my bff came to town a few months ago and made me cooking light’s version of verde enchiladas and i’ve been hooked on them ever since. seriously good stuff.
best change to our home: well, we moved into this place exactly one year ago. i love what we did to the place, but the best change was giving up our old red couch for a new green one – felt adventurous and so us.
best tea: tazo’s wild sweet orange and my old standby, republic’s british breakfast (with milk + sugar)
best word or phrase: 2009 was eye opening and joyous.
other favorite words/phrases: hawt (as in hot), totes (as in totally), omg (as in omg), big love, brave.
fave new person: elyse, my studio assistant. she’s got me all organized. and she’s funny, too.
favorite project: though it was a totally pain in the rear at times, my fave project was launching a new website and online shop. i just love it.
more best of 2009 coming up!
ps – the shop has been empty for a bit, but i just received a new shipment of wall canvases (19 images) and bookmarks (8 different designs). they are up in the shop now!
