Welcome to my blog!

This is a place to share my many ideas, (along with a story or two), about party planning from the theme to the thank you note, organization from your closets to your kid's artwork, and home decor, from wall color to window treatments. I have a passion for graphic design, fine art, photography, interior design and a great party! Creativity and the visually aesthetic get my juices flowing and I hope this blog can be a place to have fun exchanging ideas and resources and help your creative juices flow too!

Turkey For Me, and Turkey For You!

As Thanksgiving approaches, what comes to mind is: my family's upcoming visit, preparing and enjoying one of my favorite meals, all that I am thankful for and Adam Sandler's classic, Thanksgiving Song (video).  It always makes me smile : ) 
Since there are an abundance of Thanksgiving food and desert recipes out there in the webosphere, I thought I'd just share many of the fun and creative holiday themed treats I've come across as well as some crafty decorations to make the holiday just that much more festive.
A new thing I'm thankful for this year, is all of you who are taking the time to read this post : )  
I hope that you have a joyful day of gratitude with at least one person you love and who loves you.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Design Note: I have no idea why many of the photos have so much space between them.  One of these days I'll upgrade to a more sophisticated format but for now, this simple one is all I can handle : )
