Thank you notes for 2013...

While we've already made a nice little dent in January (still wondering how this happened), I can't help but continuously think about how last year was a great one for Design Roots. It marked our 5 year business anniversary among many other milestones and exciting opportunities! When I think back on the past year, I can't help but want to simply say, thank you 2013.  

And while Jimmy Fallon's thank you notes segments are by far one of the funniest things he does, I can only compose this post with that in mind, so here goes:

Thank you housing market for providing me with endless customers who can now buy homes and need custom return address stamps designed.

Thank you Mica May and May Designs for taking my request to host a calligraphy class in Houston and running with it by creating a beautiful calligraphy book and co-hosting an event at my dream location, Anthropologie.

Thank you Stuart, of The Broadcast, for getting my foot in the door at KTXD and giving me an excuse to visit the drybar every time I was on TV!

Thank you Chelsee, for your willingness to jump right in to my world of crazy and becoming my first employee (because immediate and extended family don't count, right? Oh yea.. a BIG thank you to all of you, too!).

Thank you Paper Source for having far too many patterns of washi tape, styles of pens, and fabulous paper goods from around the globe that I feel inclined to spend every dollar I own whenever I stop in. Oh, and thank you for the opportunity to teach a monthly handwriting workshop in-store, too!

Thank you calligraphy classes and workshops in my home studio for being a huge success and giving me a reason and major motivation to keep my house clean and in tip-top shape!
