Some Local Work

for the ones I ♥!

One of my very best friends is about to be blessed with twin boys, spent some time making this invite just perfect for the little two pieces of perfection that are about to enter her and her husband's world! Congrats Liz!

And another very best friend, completely honored to create this party package. My extremely design talented lifelong friend has been such an inspiration and an encouraging soul as I have pursued this journey - thank you for allowing me to create for your baby girl's special day, means the world!

Mother's Day

Just a little something to share as my two boys light up my each and every day. This past year has been one full of growth and grace - personally & professionally - so thankful for the love and support from family, friends and clients.

Happy Mother's Day to all of you wonderful mama's - you are my continued inspiration!!

I can leave the party planning at home but it seems to always find me. I was beyond tickled to be at my neiece's third birthday celebration in Washington for her Sweet Shoppe Hello Kitty bash! My sister stumbled across a fabulous party decor designer that I just couldn't pass up ranting and raving about -- Debbie with Hip Hip Hurrah handmade pinwheels has the most precious items ready made in her Etsy store or if you need something custom as I just had to order these for my next party after seeing these undeniably cute pinwheels at Lacey's party - she will be happy to work with you!

Modern Bebe goodies as well ♥

Spring is full of babies and weddings! It's been a fun break from party planning to celebrate in all special moments of life!

Fabulous Etsy Find

A fabulous Etsy find! Angela and Bridget are just precious with their shop Taffy Wishes! They're creation of a custom felt banner has been the inspirational design to the start of my son's Nautical Party in May. They are precise in their communication in color, theme, style and options and I really appreciate the time they took to make sure my items were just perfect!

Thank you again ladies, best wishes!!

Pretty Princess!

I've had a few projects floating around in my head and one was a new Princess party, so I was thrilled when Ashli in Austin, Texas came to me with this idea for her daughter Chloe! The final product was printed on a metallic cardstock and embellished with rhinestones. Looking forward to creating a custom party package wihin the next week for this little princess

Thank you Baby Star Designs for the princess graphics and Erin Bradley for the fun frames to make this project complete!

the start of 2011 in a nutshell

Here a few of the favorites over the last few months...

These items are so new they're not even in my shop yet but this makes me want to have rocker parties for my son's every year! Tasha was such a joy to work with on this project! We wanted to achieve a fresh modern spin off of Coen's Rockin' 1st party on Project Nursery, many additional items were created as well - such a fun project - Happy Birthday TATE!

Just a sneak peek at my baby's 2nd birthday party goodies coming up in May!

♥ the name and the special client this was created for!

this was party of an Elmo Carnival themed party, first banner made with the new paper trimmer, took way too long but the finished product was darling so well worth it!

top selling party on etsy, dr. seuss -- items updated almost daily, so check it!

Thank you always to my wonderful clients ♥
