clean slate..

Posted January 01, 2012 by Christina


Oh how nice it is to feel that you have a clean slate.  A great place to start from.  That is the feeling each new year brings for me.  It is a time of cleaning out, planning ahead and making wishes for the coming year...  
What are you wishing for this year?  

Me... I am wishing for..

  1. time.. more time to do what needs to be done and then relax.
  2. travel.. I have many plans floating around in my head.  Maybe the south of France this year??
  3. cleaning out.. time to clear out the clutter and start to focus on what is the most important in family and business this year.
  4. change...this year promises to bring about some wonderful changes for me and my family.
  5. wishes.. I wish to laugh more this year and enjoy the gifts that I have been given.
Happy New Year- Here's to wishing in 2012..

I’m wishing for a refrigerator that is built into the wall.

I think that’s the skinniest refrigerator I’ve ever seen. Happy New Year to you and your family!

Hello Christina,

Happy 2012! If you do come to the south of France, I can recommend traveling to the Nice airport, France’s second airport, but very manageable and well connected. From Nice, it is very easy to reach any of the wonderful towns in the back country. If you need to stay over in Nice, where CANOE design is located, we rent an apartment on the Port of Nice, on a short term basis: contact Bon voyage! Ruth Cawker

You have been an endless source of inspiration to me, the last several months since I found you and really instrumental in getting myself unstuck. And, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to post every day, like you do, but just hearing that you also have some clutter. (I’m the messy, creative type as opposed to the neat freak creative type), makes me love you all the more!

Laurel (Lexie, on that other blog— lol) yeah— not sorry to see the back end of 2011

Here’s to fresh starts and new beginnings!!!

Happy new year! Your wishes for the year sum up mine as well, especially #1 TIME!!! But I think it is also important to take the time to be grateful for what we have… I hope all your wishes and dreams come true for you. Have a great beginning with your clean slate. Regards, Tammy

I like your comment about a clean slate….a friend of mine said it’s like pressing the reset button! I think of it as going back to centre. All the best, wishing you continued success. Brenda.
