What's new...hmmm that's a loaded question. It's probably easier to tell you what's NOT new! When I first logged onto my blog this morning I realized I needed to do a little housekeeping, it was a bit dusty! I have been doing a LOT of brainstorming over the last 5 months about my business, where I'd like it to go, where my true passion lies...the list could go on. I LOVE being creative, absolutely love it in all it's forms. If you were to come over and see my studio you'd see what I mean. Over the last 5 months I have dusted off (apparently doing a lot of that!) my sewing machine and my embroidery machine. I have more cardstock, stamp sets, embossing powder, embellishments, ribbon and fabric than a lot of people. I've also discovered the fun of applique (after a few tries) and I'm working on a certificate in graphic design which I'm hoping to have complete by the end of this year. There isn't just one creative outlet that I enjoy, I enjoy many, I feel like I'm a power strip I have so many outlets!
Here are pictures of a few of the pillows I listed on etsy last night, visit my store to see all of them.

My youngest son is one of my biggest allies when it comes to planning a party. He definitely indulges me and always gives me a great theme to work with. This year I thought I had him sold on a cowboy theme but he decided that just wasn't it. Instead he decided he wanted a Red Sox party. Now he is a huge Red Sox fan and honestly I think that's an understatement. He loves baseball and knows more about each team than I can even comprehend. As I started to play with ideas in my head I realized I could really have fun with this!
Among his requests were that everyone played a whiffle ball game - kids versus adults and Red Sox attire was pretty much mandatory. Well the whiffle ball game ultimately made me decide that I really needed to incorporate some key elements of Fenway Park into this party. I was determined to turn my parents back yard into a mini Fenway Park!
Guests received ticket style invitations featuring David Ortiz and they came out awesome! I found those on eBay from Magic Design Invitations, they were perfect. They definitely set the tone and everyone got the hint to wear their Red Sox gear. Food included peanuts, popcorn, hot dogs and my personal favorite - italian sausages with peppers & onions, which in my book is a must when I visit Fenway.
Below are some images from the party. You can visit our Facebook page for more images.

When I was first contacted by Bethany for her August wedding I was happy for many reasons. For one we went to school together as kids and it had been years since I'd seen her and another, I knew I'd have the opportunity to work with the J & L Catering team once again. The little details that Bethany & Andy incorporated into their wedding were wonderful, they truly captured what a wedding should be about - the bride & groom and their life together. That's exactly what their day was about.
They were surrounded by friends and loved ones not only from Massachusetts but also from England and Africa (where they met). I could've sat and talked to the ring bearer all day long as I loved listening to his accent, it was truly awesome. One of my favorite elements of this wedding were the favors for the guests. The favors were photos that Bethany had taken on her travels around the world, placed in simple glass frames. On the back of each one she wrote the location and date as well as the name of the person receiving it. Not only were they beautiful but I don't think you can really get more personal than that.
Here are some photos from their wedding day, courtesy of Ericson Photography.

I really wanted this party to be special for her. The school colors, gerbera daisies (one of her favorites) and photos were weaved throughout the party. Everyone had a fabulous time dancing and singing karaoke. Here are some pictures from the party, if you'd like to see the rest you can see them on our Facebook Page.
