Looking Forward to 2013

I can't believe how much I have learned in the short time I have been writing this blog. Some projects have been completed simply while others have been quite trying at times. In thinking ahead to 2013 I tried to come up with one word for this year to help me stay on track... lately I seem to be all over the place with the things I want to get done.

My word for 2013 is "FOCUS" !! 

Since I started this blog I have made many new contacts and have read many blogs. In doing so I think I have found what truly inspires me and now is the perfect time to focus on what I want this blog to become. 

My favorite accomplishments so far have revolved around pallets and furniture. I truly love to remake something from old furniture finds. Sometimes even broken pieces of furniture can be transformed into something new and wonderful.  Weather its a simple re-paint or a total de-construction and re- construction  into a new piece it is always fun coming up with the way things can be re-purposed into something new. Pallets are so versatile and the wood can be used in many different ways, either by keeping them complete or breaking apart to use.

So for 2013 these two things will be my FOCUS.

I am always on the lookout for curb finds and cheap buys from thrift stores so now I have a FOCUS on what to look for and hopefully improve my skills in this area of DIY. I can't wait to get started  with new paint products and procedures that I have been reading about.

Of course I live in Florida and the coastal, beachy, relaxed  lifestyle is what truly inspires me. So hopefully I can incorporate this into my future projects.

I am so excited for this year and have a lot of plans made. I hope you check in often to see what we are up to. Starting next week I'm going to start a Monday Metal weekly post to include Mike's awesome artwork and creativity that he completes using metals. This is the first step to being FOCUSED on improvements and time management.

 Love this quote and it is another inspiration for this year.

Here's to a great 2013 and being in "FOCUS"!!!!
