2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for the sage atelier blog.

A screen capture from over a year ago, we’ve come a long way baby…

We noted that the data was slightly off, our most popular day was on December 26th with 1,286 hits for that day alone, thanks to Desire to Inspire’s Reading Guide 2011.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

inspiration :: new artwork

When flipping through interior design magazines and my daily list of blogs {desde my ventana is one of my faves}, certain images conjure up ideas for artwork. These beautiful rooms do just that for me. Next step, I go on an imagery hunt, searching for images from the 18th and 19th centuries … this process can take days, months, and sometimes years.



This image screams PERFECT for the artwork that I have in mind. Now on to all the minute details [the textiles, the background, the little details that hide throughout the work] and then the sketching process. Stay tuned.
