So I was reading a decorating magazine last night, one of the few I bought lately...I think it was Decorating on a Budget (which is published by Country Living)...and I came across an article on women entrepreneurs. That's inspiring enough! There were quick blips on how they got started and their experiences etc, which were super interesting (I wish they were longer, but their web site actually has more information). As I'm browsing through the different success stories (seriously, I hope I'm one of them someday!) I stop on a name that's familiar. "Alicia Paulson", where do I know that name from? I knew I knew her from somewhere! Then I read that she blogs and it all falls into place. Alicia Paulson is the author of one of my favorite blogs, Posie Gets Cozy, and daily reads (:
Not only is she an inspiration to me because of her success as a business woman, but also because of her success as a blogger. An example: She posted a blog yesterday, as in February 26, 2008, and it already has 79 comments on it. Not that comments are everything, but they sure are an encouragement to the author AND they show the amount of readers the blog has. Amazing.
So last night the meeting with Krystal went really well. I felt so professional sitting there for coffee and going over my list of questions and ideas. She said she's so relieved that I'm helping her, she's not near as stressed...which makes me feel so good! That's all that I need (:
Most of our ideas are now written down and the biggest decisions have been made so all we need to do now is start to get the crafting items together so we can start to make the center pieces and other decorations. I'll be posting pictures as we start creating! I can't wait!
One of the many ideas we have decided on is to get these chair covers, ivory with green ties, for the reception. Should look stunning!
