Happy New Year to All!

I hope you all had fabulous New Year. I'm still writing 2007 on my checks so I guess it hasn't hasn't quite sunk in for me yet!! Here in the San Francisco Bay area we've just gone through some crazy storms and extended power outages. Some folks still have no power so I'm one of the lucky ones!! ; )

We had a great Christmas. My 5 1/2 year old son received a sleigh load of goodies from Santa. For dinner I broke from tradition and made Steak au Poivre ....that was scrumptuous if I do say so myself! But so was dessert and I won't tempt you with those details! ; )

Next up, I'll be posting on some of the new color and surface trends for 2008. Some of the old with some new twists and those who love shimmery, shiney finishes will be happy to know that metallics in golds and silvers will be strong. Brown will continue into 2008 but with some warmer color companions rather than the recently popular robins egg blue and teals.

Be back soon. Happy 2008!
