See You In 2011!

Oh my dear friends, what a year we’ve had together, apart, online and off — it’s been a wild and crazy ride and I’m so happy to know and welcome you here each day. This year was a biggie for me and so now I simply must take a break from the internet, my lovely blog, and my normal schedule and just chill out. Rest and relaxation can do much to plant new seeds of creativity and so I’ll be offline collecting and planting for just a bit… I encourage you to do the same, you’ll be happier for it!

See You Next Year xo

Thank you for reading decor8, for being my friends and for all of your comments and support this year. You are each beautiful, kind and very special to me and I hope you know how much you have touched my life.

I will sign off until Wednesday, January 5th but after that, I’ll be back to the normal schedule. Enjoy the season and all the beautiful things that it brings. Be safe, warm, have joy and most of all — spread love and watch it grow for you in 2011!

xo,

Holly

    Also, thank you for being such an inspiration to us, and a kind gentle soul.
    I wonder if you can put together post of ideas for people who live under very tight budget, like me. Apart from flea markets and second hand shops.

    We all need some down time. I have been running around like a chicken without a head for weeks. My husband is home this week along with the kids so I am planning on relaxing for a change and spending time with them. I tend to get sucked in to things I need to get done for work but life has more to offer and sometimes you just gotta take the time to stop and smell the roses! Happy New Year!

    For me 2011 will be a very importent year. A few months ago I opened my own webshop Mikkili.com. And I am very proud I made this big stap. I never knew how much energy it has gave me until now. So fingers crossed for 2011.

I was wondering if you guys have any cute ideas for hiding bulky computer speakers/internet modems/the big outlet they’re connected to. I have so many unsightly cables. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
