press: Totts magazine features train collection

Totts, Fresno California’s Lifestyle Magazine for Modern Moms, hosted a real “All Aboard” birthday bash last month for a handsome little guy, Reed, who is just in love with trains. I was so honored when I learned that the editors chose our train birthday party collection for the big day!

That’s Reed and a little friend on the first page of the article, those are our custom train birthday invitations, thank you cards, table decor and printables on the second page of the article, and on the third is a lovely cake created by a local vendor, Stade Mueller. She did such a beautiful job I had to give you a closer look at that fondant train. How adorable is the heart shape coming out of the smokestack?!

You can read the entire article here and you can see a few more pictures on Tottsmag.com. Happy Friday everyone!

press: Columbus Parent Magazine

I’m so excited to announce that I’m a new contributor to Columbus Parent Magazine. I’ve been a fan of this Central Ohio monthly publication ever since my boys were born. It’s chocked-full of all things family from what events are happening around the area to tips on identifying childhood illnesses to planning the perfect family movie night and all that is in between.

For my first assignment, I had the opportunity to share my son Alex’s sixth birthday party where we mixed, bubbled, poured and tested our way through several real experiments and then several bowls of ice cream! To read the full article, you can flip to pages 44 and 45 of the virtual issue, or you can view the online version of the article and leave me a comment, which I would LOVE and APPRECIATE since this is my first contribution. (Update: Thanks to everyone who commented on the magazine’s website, unfortunately they updated their online branding and all comments were lost. In any case, I did get to read them before they were gone and I truly appreciated every sweet word!)
