Thank you everyone who participated in our 2012 New Year’s Resolution Contest. We were blown away with all your thoughtful entries. We enjoyed reading your personal stories and hope you’ll keep us posted througout the year on your successes.
Gayle Orzech Sawamura is our grand prize winner of a 4’6 x 6’6 rug of choice! Her resolution for 2012:
“In my father’s 80 years, there wasn’t anything he couldn’t do. He had a strong confidence in his abilities and determination that I have always admired. Dad passed away 2 years ago, and i used my small inheritance to fuel my lifelong passion – photography. After 20 years as a stay-at-home mom, I will open a small photography business this year. My resolution for 2012 is to cast aside self-doubt and believe that I can indeed be successful in my new career. The true gift my father gave me does not have anything to do with material things. He showed me how to live. In 2012, I will make my father proud.”
Congratulations Gayle, for taking a risk, living your passion, being adventurous and believing in your dreams! We are so excited for you and hope you’ll share pictures of your studio as you get it up and running. We believe sincerely 2012 will be a colorful year for you; from the photography in your studio to your new Company C rug!
Here are a couple of other inspiring resolutions we wanted to recognize.
First runner up and winner of a 2′ x 3′ rug of choice.
“My new year’s resolution is to HAVE.MORE.FUN! We are planning exciting outings and adventures that will create family memories while trying to be budget friendly. I also want to make everyday be more fun by “unplugging” myself for a certain time each day and focus on my kids. I also decided to stop using my alone time (when the kids are napping or at preschool) to clean up and do normal housework. It is going to be my time to be creative and do projects. Wahoo! Here’s to a fun, productive, colorful and enriching 2012! Happy new year to all.”
Second runner up and winner of a throw of choice.
“I resolve to no let major setbacks dampen my spirit and to see them as temporary challenges that fuel my determination. Change can be a good motivator.”
Congratulations to our winners and thank you again to all. Happy 2012 from all of us at Company C!
