What a Year!

2012 has been a year full of great people, fun projects, and new experiences!  This post is not about patting myself on the back, but it is about looking back and feeling good about the year.  It was an incredible learning experience full of both good and bad, and looking back at what all my hard work has accomplished gets me energized for the year ahead.

My year in review:

I was invited to Brizo Fashion Week:

I took part in a live TweetChat at KBIS:

As President-Elect of our chapter, I attended Neo-Con and ASID Leadership Conference:
myself with current President, Crystal Arreola

won a design award in the ASID Intermountain annual design competition:

Other firsts for the year:
  • I have an intern, Brittany, who has already been a huge help!
  • I've started guest blogging twice a month for Utah Style & Design!
In 2012 I was fortunate to be a part of some amazing projects:

I enjoyed the custom design & execution of millwork, doors, cabinetry, and trim in a contemporary office space.




We made progress in the Park City condo.  Note that my client has made this project a hobby, where we have fun with the design & selection of every individual item, one piece at a time.  This year we designed a custom dining hutch, dining table, entry bench, bedroom set, and living room rug.  And we finally ordered / installed the dining light fixture.




I designed and furnished the custom cabinetry in an amazing home in Deer Valley.  Full project photos will come later, but in the meantime, here are a couple details I took while visiting the site:



You already saw the big transformation that took place in this kitchen remodel:


And you saw the photos from this kitchen project:

 

I did a beautiful bathroom project using this seamless tub (more photos to follow):


And I have several other projects under way - I'll be sure to include finished photos once I have them!

And then, because one of my main goals for 2012 was to focus on work-life balance, I've had some wonderfully fun (non-work) experiences with my husband, family, and friends:

Hiked to Jackal Hut in Colorado with friends

First ever backpacking trip

spent a week in camping & hiking in Southern Utah / Grand Canyon with in-laws

Little Red Century Ride 

Hiked Deseret Peak

Anniversary biking - Mid Mountain Trail in Park City

Rabbit Valley camping & mountain biking

Just this week - skiing on Christmas Day

2012 was a year full of new things and learned lessons.  I hope you all can take the chance to reflect on everything you've learned in 2012,  and to use it to make 2013 even better.  

Happy New Year from enzy design!
