The best of 2010

Friday, December 31st, 2010

This year has been awesome. Amazing. An experience. And I can’t thank you all enough for your support, encouragement and true admiration of my incredibly hard work. It is such an honor to see my art in your homes! I look around as I sit here at my desk, on the last day of this almost too fast first year and I am teary-eyed. Your faces are on my walls. Your memories are held in MY heart as well as your own. Your lives have so greatly touched mine that I can’t leave them hidden on an external hard drive back in 2010… they’re coming along with me into this new year. 😉 As I sit here, there is beauty all around me. Your faces, your families, your relationships, your horses.. all just beautiful. I am so blessed. So very, VERY blessed.

So here they are. Here WE are. While you all know it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to pick favorites (its like choosing between my children), I did narrow them down to a few. 😉 Thank you, EACH of you… for a most amazing 2010. As we go forward I’m confident that 2011 will be just as incredible. I can’t WAIT for the next series of experiences to unfold!! Happy NEW YEAR to you all!!! Life IS sweet, and I’m so GLAD we’re savoring it!!

This past weekend was a whirlwind of activity around here… hence the delay in posting. (sorry!) :) Brandon and I celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary and both girls AND their baby cousin had birthdays!! My girls are 363 days apart and born the week before Christmas (starting the day after our anniversary). 😉 I know what you’re thinking– WHO PLANS all these major events so close to Christmas? Well, we do. I mean, IS THERE more of an honor than to share a “birthday week” with Jesus? I don’t think so! :) We enjoyed having everyone in town and celebrating baby Caroline’s first birthday too… and another VERY special milestone for the Mullen family!!

This video is guaranteed to make me bawl in about 15 years (in addition to every time I watch it now). :) They’re growing up too fast!!! :(

I realized a while back that there is something special about those larger images on the wall. I bought a 30×40 canvas and hung it on the wall in sight as I sit at my desk. It speaks to me. It tells me to remember my youth, to take a deep breath, and to hug a friend. The colors and the light are something to behold. It is ART. It is powerful. And it is awesome. We experience larger images (especially ones that are practically life sized!). We can’t HELP but take them in and let them move us.

And because they are on the wall, they allow us to enjoy the memories DAILY instead of the few times each month we glance at them on a side table in the hall or (GASP!!!) tucked between the covers of a photo album. Wall portraits are magnificent. I have them staring at me from all over the room in our (NEW—COMING SOON!!) office and meeting space. (I can’t WAIT for you all to experience them too).

Purchasing Tip: when you’re thinking about what prints to order for YOUR HOME and how to maximize your budget, think about this: you will get so much more out of one large wall portrait than you can ever get from multiple 4x6s*. Same budget, just a little different mindset. Get something you can EXPERIENCE daily and make your investment in professional portraiture count.

*Gift prints for friends and family are a different story of course. 😉

More pictures to come in the next few weeks!!! Can’t wait to show you our new space in the new year!!

2018: A year of priddysweet giving

I have been brewing this for a little while and trying to figure out how to make it a reality. Over the Christmas holiday it was made clear to me that...
