As I get ready to bid 2010 adieu in a few hours, I’d like to quickly share with you some of the fantastic friends and colleagues I’ve had the pleasure of meeting this year through Twitter, Facebook, my blog and LinkedIn. Some I formed great new friendships with while others, although fleeting, still made an impression on me!
So let’s get started…some faces you may recognize, others you may not…..but they all helped make 2010 a fabulous year for me!
Designing Colleagues / Mentors
Meeting Kimberley Seldon for the 1st time at her “Business of Design” Book signing party. I consider her to be a friend now!. Kimberley’s new lifestyle online Magazine “Dabble” launches in 2011.
Tracy Moore and I at a Cityline taping – funny enough, she only knows me by my Twitter Alias: GlamaMama! I’ve been an audience member so many times this year I hope she doesn’t think I’m a stalker!
Samantha Pynn at the same Cityline taping. She is very sweet!
Meeting Steven and Chris at their show made up of Design, Food and Lifestyle Bloggers.
I also had the pleasure of meeting Jane Lockhart at the launch of her new furniture line at The Gresham House. She’s an avid supporter of local interior designers.
Meeting the ultra glamorous gals from Rue Magazine with my BFF Vanessa at the Nate Berkus After Party in NYC!
At the Geovin Designer Appreciation Night with Carlos Di Conza, Vanessa Francis and Leigh-Ann Allaire Perrault from Benjamin Moore!
And then of course, I finally got to meet Sarah Richardson and Tommy Smythe. Their new show Sarah 101 launches on January 4th and I will be blogging about the interview I had with them on that day!!
Ok, now I want to introduce all the fabulous ladies I met this year. I had the opportunity to attend so many design / networking events this past year. You’ll notice many familiar faces that keep popping up again and again!!
