A Most Inspiring Lady

I've been reading on a few other blogs about posting inspirational items. I would be remiss if I did not post about a beautiful soul that has truly inspired me and has only recently come into my life. Mari Robeson is an absolutely wonderful human being. She is a designer, artist, mom, business owner, and all around wonderful person. I saw Mari on HGTV's That's Clever and began corresponding with her shortly after that. She has a wonderful site called Mari Robeson Home and a equally fabulous blog called Mari Robeson Style where she gives some fabulous finds and advice. The photo above is of one of her beautiful sachets. This is the one she did on That's Clever. I loved it so much that I ordered if for myself. It says "Dream Sweet Baby Girl" and is actually for a baby - but I was a baby once!

Mari has been the inspiration behind me finally getting Yuppy Puppy Pawtisserie off the ground and she has also inspired me (as have many of you!) to go back to the artist in me and let her come out! Mari is clear across the country from me but I do hope to some day visit her in California and go to her brand new showroom located in Arroyo Grande and also called Mari Robeson Home.

Stop by and check her out! I know she would love to meet everyone.
I also want to take a moment and say THANK YOU to ArtsyMama for the fabulous tea party as well as to everyone that left comments for me. As a true newbie to blogging I am honored that you all visited my blog. I had many people ask how I became an event planner, well I pretty much fell into it. I always enjoyed (and still do) planning family events and did some small scale business events while in college. Once I graduated I took a job that was not the right fit and found that there was an event planning opening at my alma mater, so I took a chance and here I am 7 years later! Event planning is enjoyable but certainly has it's challenges. Things do not always go as you want and people are not always as nice as you would hope they would be but it is still great to see an event come to fruition. Since I'm on the academic end I do a lot of lectures, ceremonies, and dinners. If anyone is interested in learning more e-mail me or leave a comment. I am happy to help anyone looking to break into the industry.

Thank you for visiting my blog! Yours is very lovely - and you've only been blogging for such a short time! I ALMOST got a job as an event planner in Boston as my first job, but I became a proofreader instead. Go figure - those two occupations are so different! heehee Happy Weekend! I will be back! =)

Oh thank you so much for adding me to your list! I will add you to mine too, I enjoyed your site. The dog treats look wonderful, and I am sure my Yorkies would love them, but they are having weight issues as they get older.
