Welcoming the New Year

Are you one of those people who instinctively reach for the iPad or notebook as the year draws to a close? Listing your resolutions, determined to make 2020 the year you accomplished “it,” whatever it is for you. Long ago, when I served in Tony Robbins’ Leadership Program, I put the list away — upon accepting Tony’s quote, “It’s in our moments of decision that our destiny is shaped.” We can change anytime we choose. Give that phrase some thought. It’s empowering and comforting. It’s our choice now, not some list’s.

Our newest issue features comprehensive design trends from 15 area designers. In addition, check out the new Benjamin Moore colors and Leatrice Eiseman’s take on color.

Considering new appliances? Molly McCabe reviews the latest appliances and their advantages.

Our home feature is a sequenced remodel by Sentinel Construction. The owners, Steve and Theresa Erickson, made their Hood Canal home into a forever home.

Have you tried the award-winning Axe & Arrow Gastropub in Bremerton? It has an inspiring story and wonderful food.

Looking for an evening of fun? Try a Paint and Sip party. Read about four different artists and the fun their parties offer.

Harbor Construction just completed its artistic touches on the McMenamins Tacoma Elks Lodge. Creative craftsmanship at its finest.

Cecilia Blomberg creates beautiful and stunning tapestries of yarn. You’ll be amazed at the works of this Gig Harbor artist.

Wondering what the new plants are for 2020? Deb Teashon has an impressive list for you.

Thank you for your friendship and partnerships while we promote local people, businesses, nonprofits and events. Our amazing staff and creative writers join me in wishing you a warm and happy New Year.
