Save The Date for 31 Wishes


Once upon a time........

There was this girl who dreamed the most outlandish things.
Parties with big bright topiaries made of candy from yesteryear.
Black and orange garland hung from the roof rafters above. She
wished for a gala, an artful gala filled with friends, fun and
 a moment in time when all their artful wishes
would come true!

So mark your calenders ladies!!!
I have begun the magical composition of a most
Nostalgic and Festive Halloween Event!

A day and evening of pure artful confections and

It's Time To Party!!!


Another little secret I have....I love my scrap booking products , 
especially my Cricut!  
Yes..... I am a super versatile artist, crafter, and hostest with the mostest!
I found that if you limit yourself in products and tools, 
one can never ultimately find creative euphoria!
Truth!

With that little tid bit.....
I am so honored to be published in the current edition of  Cricut's Birthday Magazine 2012!
I'll call it an early birthday gift to myself!

 I hope you go out and buy a copy for yourself or someone who
loves to make birthday favors using their Cricut Machine on the fly! 
There is so much offered in this edition and I
know you will love it!!

Also, I must apologize for my long absence, I have taken on the a 
great feat, Homeschooling, but we have come to an official summer break and I must
commence my creative endeavors and blog like a mad woman!!!

Blog on my friends....Blog on!!!!
XOXO,Ann-Denise

Pretty In Pink Take 3

Last set of pics….There were many more but let’s just say they were more blurry  and distorted than anything else! Time for a new camera or a photography class!LOL

I hope you enjoyed seeing all the great art that was made and all the smiling faces with their happy hearts filled with so much Pink love! The event was kept small and intimate in hopes of building better friendships with old and new. I think my goal was met!

I enjoyed throwing this Pink Bash and I hope to do it again next year, so for those of you that didn’t have an opportunity to make it don’t forget the Saturday before Valentine’s Day…..Get your Pink on!

Here we go…… Last batch!

Once again, I was humbled by all the talent that surrounded me and I enjoyed cooking for everyone, the menu by the way was, Chicken Masala, Garlic  Mashed Potatoes, Mixed greens with bacon, candied almonds and a  “Special Pink Dressing”  with Onion rolls. They finished it off with red velvet cake, Tiramisu, Italian chocolate cake and  a sweet candy bar! Italian sodas flowed…literally ask Jen and Lisa about that!

Thank you to all those that attended and  A special Thank you goes out to Betti Zucker for sending Special valentines to all the girlies…Muah! Also to my wonderful daughter Kendall who stayed up endless hours with me and crafted her little heart away and made sure that we were on task and finishing every detail!! I love you gurl, you’re a chip off the old block! And last but not least A”Special Thank you” to Sandra Feazel who is an absolute pleasure to work with and not to mention a very talented artist!!

 

Happy Valentine’s Day!!

Hope to see you at the High Tea
