Happy New Year Everyone!!  I welcome 2013 and all the possibilities a fresh New Year brings.

2012 was full of restoration/remodeling for me and I am happy to  almost be done, I will spend a few posts this month on before and afters.

January 2012 I moved into Lonestar Antique Mall, I am so pleased with that choice and have been here a year and can say I  am a very happy vendor at Lonestar it is the place I am supposed to be and I am doing what I am supposed to do having fun while working!

My personal goals for 2013 are to spend every morning in my newly decorated Ballet room to walk/run on treadmill and do pilates and barre work dvd's with a little yoga thrown in! I will begin horseback riding lessons after my fitness goal is met!

Professionaly I would like to study my Nikon camera more and become better at shooting pictures, maybe even submitting pics of my home/work to a few places.....Keeping my booth fuller than I was able to this year with all the home renovations.

I will be posting more indepth before and afters throughout the month but here are a couple pics of where I will be spending a good part of my mornings!!

I may even get comfortable enough to attend some live classes at DAllas Barre Method or Southlake Pure Barre or even Fort Worth Texas Ballet Theatre is now doing exercise classes!

Hope you have a wonderful year all!
