Samantha Hahn of Maquette, is one of my first blogger friends that I got to meet in person when she and her husband flew out to California. We met via an email that I received one day with some really cool illustrations that Samantha had done with my handbags. I liked them so much that we ended up collaborating on a series of illustrations she did for my line. Since that time Sam has poured more energy than anyone I know into her illustration career and it has paid off! You may have seen her illustrations for AphroChic featured in the NYT recently.
One of Samantha's happy intentions for 2011: To dream big but take notice of what is already good in my life.
Couture Carrie is one of my daily reads, and to say it's fashion eye candy doesn't really do it justice. CC loads each post with so many dazzling images of a particular trend--think ruffles, strapless, off-the-shoulder, plaid, coats, capes, gowns, minis--that the possibilities feel endless. She also does the best weekly architectural inspiration series of anyone I've seen in the blogsphere!
CC's happy intention for 2011: I intend to be more creative in the new year!
Sue from The Zhush has impeccable taste--she always draws you in with the perfect chic find that satisfies the soul, and is so warm and down to earth that you just want to dive into her yummy images and linger a bit with her.
My intention for 2011 is to be more present in the moment, to stop racing to the next thing...even in my mind. The to do list will always be there, but my children will only be young once. Wish me luck!
Stay tuned for more happy intentions and please tell me what your happy intention is for 2011, I'd love to know!
