HOLIDAY Christmas Party for REG

The holiday Christmas Party at the residence of Laura & Ricardo was a hit!  Everyone enjoyed the cool temperatures around a firepit.  All the while a chef was custom preparing a Paella!  Later the guests enjoyed a holiday dessert bar with peppermint bark, cookies and cupcakes - delicious!  Party themes this year were "Traditional Christmas, White Christmas, The Best Gift and Peppermint Stick", wow were those decorations knocked out!

Do you thrift shop?

Is thrift shopping a passion of yours?  It is for me.  I love finding new thrift shops and buying stuff from them.  I've been doing this since I left my hometown Erie.  My first experience with thrift stores was when I was 19 years old.  I went with a friend, Rose, to downtown Erie to find a halloween costume.  I was amazed at the selection of vintage clothing they had.  Since then, I've been hooked!  I don't really buy clothes, I buy home goods/decor.  I think that re-purposing an item is one of the best ways to create a new environment for your family.

Share with me your experience about thrifting; would love to hear your story!

Party Frilz

Well, it's official, I found my mojo and it's: "Party Frilz" is my new biz. It's basically all the party stuff I've been doing, it's just going to be my global entity. First love artist is where I will sell the products. Party Frilz will be the actual parties set up to view. Glad that's established. It just takes forever to push out these creative things. I'm happy to have met Kimberly @ the Kings Academy Trunk Show. She is quite a resource. Her business is Extraordinary Sweets. She does party buffets that are candy! How cool is that. She has totally inspired me to push out more. I want to create more cool parties and will be working with her over the next 60 days to produce them.
