2012 was a pretty exciting year! It had its ups and downs like they all do, but there were also some pretty amazing things & changes that happened. Here are my top 5 moments on Smitten Studio.

1. We bought this old weathered cabin.

2. We renovated the cabin (Still a work in progress but here is where we are at the years end). See all the posts here.

3. I turned 30 and threw a party! See the original post here and on 100 layer cake here.

4. I quit my full-time job. After building a successful product line for someone else for 5 years I made the leap to do it for myself and spend more time here, in my own studio.  See more of my workspace here.

5. We traveled to a few really cool places. Like Big Sur and England and Wine Country.
