DIY Beach Wall Art


  Summer has been so wonderful. I’m enjoying spending quality time with my little one, with days full with sun and fun! I do not take clients or parties during the summer. For one, it’s so hot in Phoenix that the whole event world kind of takes a hiatus….it’s very slow here in the summer. [...]

“Smash”ing Party Idea!
