Welcome to Champagne To Crayons, I am so glad you stopped by to my little corner of the blogging world!
Grab a glass of champagne, wine, coffee, or whatever your drink of choice is to celebrate, and lets hang out for awhile!
I am inspired by so many things in my life, but the main one is my daughter, Giuliana.
Before she was born, I was in love with my crazy career in Advertising. I lived and breathed it. Then, she appeared, and that all changed.
I wanted to soak up every minute of adorableness when I could.
So, I decided to become a work at home mom. I knew I had the strength and support to start my own business, and that is what I did.
I have created a small marketing and advertising company, a blog, and coming in September of 2014, my brand new adventure, an Etsy Shop.
Our life is busy, but blessed.
My crazy, adorable, and much appreciated other half has kept me grounded, gives me the encouragement to do this fabulous adventure that we call all life.
So, a few things about me that you might want to know..
- An awesome “social media freak”- obsessed with all types and love learning the ways to connect everyday!
- A momprenuer
- A “kick ass” advertising/marketing consultant (really quoted by someone, and not by just me)
- A story teller sales person (which i guess has been a good thing, got me far in life)
- Crafty (get that from the mom)
- Social butterfly
- Friend to all, great friend to many, best friend to some
WINE, PERIOD. All kinds, types, and flavors. Traveling to places with wine trails, and wine tastings, is one of my favorite things to do.
I love making things pretty. Decorating and planning parties comes natural to me, thanks to my mama.
Christmas time at my house is insane. Here is my house tour from last Christmas!
And planning parties is a passion. I wish I could do it full time!
And most importantly, I LOVE COFFEE….
a good debate, The Good Wife, Grey’s, a sucker for the Biggest Loser, my daily indulgence of Young and the Restless, unique restaurants, i swear i am a foodie at heart, baking cupcakes, my family that I am so blessed to have, flea-tiqueing (flea markets), girl’s nights with my very best friends.
Champagne to Crayons was created for us moms and women, because we NEED to remember to celebrate those little things in life. Like that awesome cup of coffee you had this morning, the picture frame you created for your kids last week, or that sale you made on your last sales call of the day.
Being a mom is hard.
No one is ever really prepared for it no matter how badly you want children. So many times I have seen moms put other moms down, judged them, their kids, or lifestyle. I wanted to create a space where you celebrate all the little things that we often forget to do, and not feel judged. I wanted a place where I could remember to do that to. To remember to celebrate this great gift I was given, everyday, no matter how hard it gets.
I needed encouragement and inspiration from moms who came before me. Like the moms, who somehow manage three kids, and still have time for a shower, daily.
When we all come together and celebrate each other, our jobs, our families, or those awesome pair of shoes you just bought, IT IS INSPIRING.
To see the true beauty in all moments big and small is what I strive to write about and share with you.
Creating a community of strong women and celebrating everything that we have to offer is why I write.
I want you to be empowered by the women I talk about in my Women In Business Series, I hope you feel inspired to somehow start a business if that is your dream.
All in all, Champagne To Crayons is about choosing to celebrate, and when we do that, a shift happens in our life. We somehow are able to see the beauty in this life that we have been so blessed to have.
So my friends, I hope you will join me as I share how I’ve learned to celebrate and embrace the little things hidden in our everyday lives.
Much love and thanks for stopping by!
