Oh what a year it was . . .

It's always fun at the end of the year to go through pictures that have documented your year. There were so many photos this year, it was hard to choose. But I certainly hit on the highlights. From the many shows that I was a part of . . . Petite Retreat, The Farm Chicks Show, Haley's Cottage Flea Market, Ruffles and Rust, Wine - Women - Business . . . so much fun to be a part of these amazing shows. 2011 promises to be as busy as 2010. At this point, I've only committed to the Ruffles and Rust Show, February 19-20. Kellan will be graduating, so it looks like I might just be a customer at The Farm Chicks Show this year and make a return visit in 2012.

And then it was the Conferences I attended. In April, The Mary Engelbreit Workshop where my name tag won an award, to Where Women Create - Creative Connection in Minneapolis in September. I'll make a return visit to Minneapolis next September for the 2nd Creative Connection. Honestly, so much bonding with such amazing women . . . I wouldn't miss it.

In November, the feature in Matthew Mead Holiday Magazine. What a way to start the Holiday season. Such a beautiful magazine, and I was so proud to be a part of Matthew's inaugural magazine.
In 2011, I am so excited to be a part of a beautiful book called "Where Women Cook - Celebrations". It will be part cookbook and part vignette stories about celebrations. My feature is a Girlfriend's Backyard Garden Party. You'll have to wait for details and I haven't heard exactly when it will be published . . . Spring or Fall!
And I think the most exciting part of 2011 is that Tippy Stockton Jewelry is going to be hitting the road with a Rep. Group in Seattle. 5 Western States, and 15 reps. So exciting, daunting, and a little scary all at the same time. But I couldn't be happier! I never knew I could be so excited and in love with what I'm doing. I'm truly blessed!
So here's to an amazing 2011!
I wish you love, prosperity, health and happiness the whole year through.
