As I write this it is 60 degrees and not feeling like our typical January at all. That’s alright with me. I liked having a white Christmas (although it was a little too cold) and I’m ready to go back to the 50 and 60-degree temps. Are you the type that takes all the holiday decorations down the day after Christmas or do you leave some until later this month?
My tree is down and all my Santas are put away. I brought out some snowmen and left pine boughs and pinecones. It’s always nice to have some fresh greens whether it is branches cut from plants in the yard, a good-looking artificial plant, or a live green plant. My mom sends me an amaryllis every Christmas. You can almost watch this beauty grow.
We measured the first bud at 1-1/4” on December 21. Look at it now!
A Recently Completed Project
Last month I told you about an office project I recently worked on. Their chairs arrived today! They are so fun with the velvet fabric and gold legs! Paige shared this kind message…
“This past year was a really great year for JPB! We recently moved into a larger office space to accommodate our amazing growing team. Once we scoped out our new space, we had many ideas on how to decorate it and make it ours. The first person who came to mind was Pat at Great Impressions in Marion, Ohio. We have had the pleasure of working with Pat over the years and helping with her social media platforms. She is so talented and creative, and we knew we were in good hands. She gave us many wonderful options and her professional opinion on what would work best for our new office space. She came in and placed every piece of furniture and artwork to perfection, and we could not be more ecstatic with the results. Thank you, Pat, for taking such good care of us and helping our vision for our new office come to life. We appreciate you!”

Organizing Into the New Year
Here are a few products I'm ready to pick up!
As we put things away and get ourselves organized again, I found this under-sink organizer. It makes it so much easier to find the things in the back of the cabinet. You can get it here!
My friend bought this plastic bag organizer and highly recommends it. I think I’ll order one.
New Year, New Projects
It's a great time of year to start a project. Call me at 740-337-1649 if you need help getting started on one of your ideas.
Here are a few of my upcoming projects…
I’ll be sure to share photos as they are completed.
