Merry Christmas to you all!
Whether Christian, Jew, Muslim, Hindu or whatever….Merry Christmas. The
Candelaria Design crew wish all of you a wonderful Holiday season!
Just a few tidbits to post
this week as we prepare for the final weeks of 2013! First – thanks to ALL of my
wonderful staff. What a great year and what wonderful creations we have
underway, both under construction and on the boards. If I stop to check we probably
have over 80 projects going in some manner. Projects here in Phoenix, Michigan,
Nevada, Colorado, Texas, California, and New Mexico. What fun and what little
sleep I get!
Of course I need to thank all of our wonderful clients who make all of this happen. We are working with so many absolutely fantastic people who dream as big as we do and then make it happen. You all inspire me and I love the energy and beauty we create together.
Next, I really want to thank
all the builders and designers we are so fortunate to work for. I wish I had a
project for every builder and designer I knew – trust me I really try to share
and spread my work around. I know we appreciate ALL of the referrals and I hope
we do our best to make you proud you did refer us.
Next, the vendors and subs!
You are all great and I have developed so many fun friendships with many of
you. I think Phoenix is blessed with some amazing craftspeople. In the 30 years
plus I have been practicing, the level of work and creativity just keeps
growing and growing all serving to make Phoenix a more beautiful city filled
with art and architecture. Just wait what is in store in the years ahead. You
all inspire me.
Next, the realtors! Love you
all and thanks for letting us help you and for your referrals. It’s so
appreciated. From empty lots to selling a completed or resold Candelaria Design
home and referring the new buyer to us – we cannot tell you what it means to
us. I love the Candelaria clients that have bought and sold each others
Candelaria homes….that is so cool.
Next, my family! You put up
with my meetings, drawing all hours of the day and mostly night, phone calls
and texts from clients at 2 am, parties, trips, and the understanding of my
love for what I do. I want you to know I appreciate it and I hope you all know
I love you all and always want to do more to give back to you.
Finally, to my sweet Isabel.
Isabel and I got married in September on the final day of our Candelaria Design
Tour Italy trip. What a day that was. I love this lady and what she has done
for me and making my life that much more beautiful. Beauty just flows from her
and it’s so nice to be in the aura of that energy and creativity. We are
working on a couple fun projects together so get ready for some unveilings in
Thank you for all the
wonderful cigars, wines, gift certificates, popcorn tins and brownies!!! We
will be doing the day at St. Mary’s Food Bank right after the first of the year
as our way of saying thank you. You are all welcome to join us. We will be
setting the date soon so just email us your interest in participating and we
will feed thousands in one afternoon!
So – Merry Christmas to you
all! I wish everyone a joyous holiday.
Stay tuned this week as we will post from Santa Fe, New Mexico and share some recipes and photos from this amazing place. We will also recap 2013 and get ready for 2014.
