I learn from my mom...

I drove up to my parent's house today and realized just how much I have gotten my creativity skills from my mother. I found it so funny that we did practically the same ribbon decorations without even knowing of the other's doing...lol! Like mother like daughter I guess!

My mom and I have pretty different decorating tastes...she is much more simple and classic, liking to set the tone in the home all year long. Whereas I am much more comfortable with changing with the seasons and have a little more of a contemporary look. Either way we both appreciate the other's taste and can have input from a decorator's sense. She has shown me how to be creative and has given me enough space and freedom to make things more eclectic and out of the box helping me create my own unique look.
Anyways, I am off to do some serious Christmas wrapping... ;)
