Those that know me well know that I am at heart a children’s entertainer.  I have always had a knack for working with the young and young at heart.  I was lucky enough to turn that into a business and have it provide me with my livelihood for many years.  I love every minute I spend working with children and creative people.  Getting paid to do so was the icing on the (birthday) cake.

I'm a party planner.  My job is to entertain groups of people.  My specialty is kids.  Put those three things together with Covid-19 and it spells a very long stretch of time without anything to do.  I'm like an airplane that's been grounded...I can see the sky, I'm just not allowed to fly.

Being an event coordinator I am always on the lookout for ways to hang decor without harming any surface.  This can be a daunting task in venues with strict rules.  So when I was offered the opportunity to try out this relatively new product that promised to make decorating "fun and easy" I jumped at the opportunity.

As a party planner with a warehouse filled with everything from art supplies to Zoo Animal decorations, I know the importance of organization.  That's not to say that I know where everything is, or exactly how much red yarn I have.  For the most part, my warehouse is pretty well organized.  However, the recent "shelter in place" order opened my eyes to the real need for space maintenance.   All of a sudden I found myself producing virtual crafting classes in my dining room,

I became interested in meditation about 12 years ago.  I had been hearing about its benefits for years from what I would call my "yoga friends".  Quite frankly, I didn't think I had the time to dedicate to such a practice.  My "YFs" were always heading off to spiritual retreats, talking about taking time to find themselves and quite frankly were a bit too "woo woo" for me.
