a new look + a new business

You may notice that it looks a lot different around here! I’ve been quiet on the blog front this summer while giving the site a face lift and figuring out how to launch my new side business.  As many of you know, I love all things creative and am excited to officially market my skills.  I’m affectionately  calling myself your “creative concierge!” I’m not quitting my day job (I’m still a corporate meeting planner & I love that too!), but am looking forward to new creative opportunities on the side. I’d love for you to explore the website, my portfolio and list of services. Please be in touch if you have a creative need!


Many thanks to a good friend and web designer for creating a beautiful and so very “me” website and helping me get set up on a new platform. We’ve said goodbye Blogger and hello to Word Press! I’m having fun playing around with the WP features and teaching myself some new tech tricks.

A special thank you to the lovely Kate at Perspective Studio for the pretty new headshots you’ll see around the site.

Thanks for sticking around and reading! I’m excited that you’re here.



* p.s., I finally created a Facebook page for my Etsy shop (to stop bombarding my personal FB friends with updates!) If you’d like to follow along and be the first to know about new products and discounts, please “like” my page.

It has officially become a UFO (unfinished object).

Nephew Charlie’s Nursery

When my sister first told me she was pregnant, I couldn’t wait to help her decorate the new baby’s nursery. Since they weren’t finding out the gender until delivery day, we chose a neutral color palette that incorporated grays, yellows, teal, polka dots and chevron. Read more »
