Hey friend!

from my hunky husband!  This DEFINITELY gets #1!  The rest are in no particular order.



Those soft hoots I hear in the middle of the night or early morning are a soothing, melodic sound that relaxes me.

I go NOWHERE without my
Kindle, and would rather read than watch TV!

Yup, I love Mother Nature and during the summer, grow most of the herbs and veggies we eat!



I absolutely LOVE a good handbag, preferably one with a keyholder and little brass feet on the bottom !



Hubby and I have a large backyard, so we'll set up the projector, pop in a movie and enjoy the great outdoors.

Right now, my all time favorites are nectarine jam with vanilla in the summer and wine spiced pear jam during winter.

I don't want you to have the same type of in-store, impersonal experience that I did!

In the early 80's, I had a HUGE formal wedding, complete with a string quartet and over 250 invited guests. In many ways, it was truly an event to remember.  Unfortunately, shopping for invitations to this grand event was NOT!  I was one of several people in the store stationery shopping.  I sat at a desk and the salesperson placed a large number of invitation books in front of me and told

I've Got You!

I DON'T want you to have that experience.  Choosing your stationery should be as joyful as choosing a wedding gown. With me, you'll have scheduled 1 on 1 time in my private office where I'll take a collaborative and consultative approach to help you find your stationery dreams!

It was obvious that I was just another transaction. There was no attempt made to build any type of trust and rapport with me, they just wanted my money.

It was so mundane!...

wanted my guests to have when they opened the envelope. I was NOT prepared for such an impersonal experience!
