My Favorite Custom Projects from 2018

My Favorite Custom Projects from 2018

I planned on putting a post together with all my favorite custom projects from 2018 back in December, but clearly that did not happen. So, before we hit February, here are some of my favorite projects from LAST year. Some work related, some not. It was really nice looking back at projects from the year and seeing that I did complete some projects I was really proud of, made some new connections, and zeroed in a bit more on what I really enjoy doing. There will always be more to do, and it will always be easy to see the negatives. But it’s worth reflecting on both the good AND the bad, and seeing where I want to go from here. There’s nothing magic about a new year. It’s not a blank slate. Just a reminder to appreciate where we’ve been and where we’re going – something we should really do more often. I hope you’re enjoying your 2019 so far!

That doesn’t mean I’m going to be scrambling to find gifts the week before Christmas though. Here are a few tips to finding meaningful, intentional gifts for everyone on your list!

Take a look at some of my favorites I’ve done for mountain loving couples!
