Happy Holidays + Year in Review

Today I woke up to the snow-covered rooftops of my neighbors. It’s Christmas Eve – and a Saturday! The year 2016 has flown by so quickly. I look back in my Day Designer and see some of the goals I had scribbled down at the beginning of the year and realized that many of them CAN be crossed off as complete! Good bye old planner – in with the new, you treated me well.

This year I met a substantial amount of new faces, both clients and those collaborating with me. I want to wish you all a happy and safe holiday and say for the millionth time that I am so glad to have made your acquaintance whether online or in person. Keep in touch!

Something I began to do more regularly in my personal life this year was to pay it forward. I get a kick out of paying for the order behind me in a drive-thru and then trying to quickly disappear/merge into traffic in hopes of not being thanked. That’s me being adventurous! There are other ways of making others feel appreciated too. Hold doors, give tips where they aren’t expected, pay a compliment!

I look forward to releasing some new and exciting additions to the brand in 2017. Every year has a vibe of it’s own, all in keeping with the growth and success of Joanna Pop. Thank you to all who have been such a great support and an inspiration!


As we stand on the threshold of 2017 I am going to take a break from gadgets. I will be answering emails periodically but will be mainly AFK until January! Take care and shine your light this holiday season.
