The Projects Just Keep on Coming

I’ve got so many fun and exciting projects I want to share with you guys.  I’ve been working like crazy finishing up projects, building products, staging them and photographing them.  Now I’m at the editing stage with some, so get ready for more of my wild, yet fun ideas.  My brain never stops!

Sneak Peak At 2017 Decor & Gift Trends

Check out my favorite 2017 products I found at one of the worlds largest gift shows (in Atlanta).  It was full of all styles of decor, holiday, kitchen and gifts for 2017 Spring and Summer trends.  It’s the leading wholesale marketplace with showrooms in over 7 million square feet and three building complexes.  It’s super exciting (and crazy exhausting!) to be exposed to so many manufacturer’s product lines and designer collections all in one place.
