My loves…

This blog has been a long time in the making and I have so much I want to say…to show…to do…but if I wait till everything is perfect I will never start!

So here I go…….a few things about me and my loves

I have a serious passion for parties and all the paper details that make a party special.  I love paper, love love love paper, and all the possibilities that the blank slate of a sheet of paper can become.  I have a love of simple, classic designs with a twist and love the handcrafted feel you can give to a celebration with a few special touches.  I am a “DIY-er” at heart and I have loads of things I would love to share…I love ruffles, pearls and polka dots.  Cupcakes and cake stands make me giddy…Like paper, fabric is an obsession and I truly believe everything is better with glitter…

Above all else…I love my family, my sweet little girls that make me smile and strive to be better.  I love my husband who is my best friend and keeps me together.  I love my parents who have always been my biggest cheerleaders and showered me with their unending support and encouragement.  I love my family and friends who have encouraged me, listened to me, and helped me get to a place where I can make “this” happen.

The next few weeks will be crazy, but I have always wanted to kick off my blog with my little Ava’s 3rd Birthday Party.  I had intended to have my Esty shop filled with all of the little goodies that I love so much, but a lot of exciting things are starting to happen that I didn’t want to wait.  Over the next few weeks I’ll start adding to the shop, so if you see anything you like, please ask…but for now enjoy the long awaited pics of Ava’s Farm Chic 3rd Birthday!
