Meeting and Greeting at the Detailed Bridal Event

The past week was hectic!... but boy was it worth it! Sunday I attended the 2nd Annual Detailed Bridal Event at the Crowne Plaza in downtown Albany. The show was amazing, champagne, food samples {I mean the good stuff mini portions that looked fab!}, cake samples, reception ideas, hair, makeup and of course stationery! I met so many new faces. All of the coupleswere sweet to talk to, excited about being at the event and eager to plan their big day. Among some professional faces Stacy Jubert, www.thechildrensguide.com and April Rounds, www.detailsweddingplanning.com were extremely welcoming and should be proud they put on such a successful show! I also want to mention Katie O'Malley of Katie O Weddings & Events www.katieoevents.com, what a friendly face! Great time had by all! Thank you again Stacy + April!

waiting game

I am anxiously waiting for my letterpress and type which will be coming home in the next week or two! I can't wait to get started working with the machine! I bought it from an older gentleman, he used it for years and is now winding down in his work. I thanked him for contacting me (thank you briarpress.com for linking us) and really look forward to the work ahead! On saying thanks, I owe one to my supportive hubby and wonderful little boy, they both praise my work and help me dig deep. I am blessed to have them. Thanks boys!
