The clocks have struck midnight and all of the new year resolutions are starting today. What are yours?

Nothing like a new year to launch new ideas, set new goals for ourselves and create a fresh start. We can make our goal lists, mark our calendars and hold each other accountable for these new resolutions, but when it comes down to it, it’s up to us.

What is in store for me in 2013?

Only time will tell – all I can do is set goals for myself and my business and pray that God takes me into the direction I am intended. I know that I am using a God-given talent and sharing it with others. Isn’t that the point? I’ve never felt so fulfilled than using my talents every day to make my clients’ vision come to life. It might be a bride with her June wedding or it might be a brand new look for a photography business. Either way, the goal is always the same – creating a beautiful visual representation of the client.

I do know one thing for 2013, we are designing the most fabulous online shop you have ever laid your eyes on and I cannot wait to open it for business! It will be filled with inspirational art prints, hand-lettered monogrammed goods and boutique paper products.

In the meantime, I would LOVE to work with you on creating a unique and authentic look for you or your business.

Cheers to 2013 and I look forward to hearing from you. Drop me a note hello@emilymccarthy.com to get started.

*My sweet birthday twin (yes, our birthdays are NYE – how fun!) gave me this card and I just love how things happen for a reason – what a great way to start off the new year. I redesigned it for you to download, pin or share to your heart is content!
