{RECAP} 2016 – A YEAR OF HIGH AND LOWS!

2016 recap post

This has become a The Marshmallow Studio tradition. Every year, I put together these RECAPS posts that outline everything we did the prior year. They are nothing but pure happiness and fluffy goodness.

I’m sorry to say, this annual recap is a quite a bit different :(

2016 was a very difficult year for us. That’s personally speaking not for the company. It challenged us physically, emotionally and mentally. I took it especially hard.

This post is meant to not only celebrate a new beginning but to also hopefully help someone who may be passing through a dark place.

WHERE HAVE WE BEEN?!?!

Steve Jobs quote

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know can already guess the answer to this question…. Where have I been?

Saying our goodbyes to our Las Vegas home.

The truth is that I’ve been going through a nightmare for the past two years (more on that later). However, I couldn’t be more happy to tell you that we’re in a better place now.

Just arrived at our new house on Camano Island.

Back at the end of April we moved to a small quiet island in the state of Washington. Life is sweet here, let me tell ya!

Camano Island

Surrounded by love, nature and peace .

You can expect to see some home decorating posts with before + after shots + DIYs, crafts and more. Who’s excited?!

 Meanwhile, I leave you here with a tease of what’s to come….

{RECAP} HOW DID 2015 FLY BY SO FAST?!

2015 Recap post

With a new itty bitty baby girl and our house up for sale, 2015 surely flew by before my eyes. I didn’t even notice it until today.

Here I am again, writing my traditional end-of-year RECAP.

I like to write these as a reflection exercise and to jot down what I need to improve on for next year.

Below you’ll find all the projects and events that we did in 2015.

Enjoy!

I’M THANKFUL FOR…..

Beach 10-2015

I am very fortunate to say I have many blessings to be thankful for in my life.

One of those blessings is my career.

I get to work from home in a Studio filled with marshmallows and sugar.

I’ve designed + created sugar art. I’ve taught classes + workshops. I’ve traveled the country. I’ve attended awesome shows and conferences. I’ve written a book. I’ve worked with incredible brands and companies. I’ve learned so much about blogging, photography, social media, digital marketing, branding and more. I’ve made good friends and met some amazing people along the way. All because my mom convinced me I should start a business making marshmallow pops.
