yes, please.

soup tasting challenge was a hit. I can honestly say that I have never eaten that much soup before in my life. there were so many delicious soups to enjoy. I loved urbanpharm's coconut-curry-cashew soup, it was quite delicious. (teresa and I just so happened to be right next to them, yum!)

what a cute little soup table. equipped with quinoa, doula services and handcrafted design work. what more could you possibly need?

it was fun to be part of an event where businesses came together to support and encourage each other -- we met some really inspiring people.
Laura from Thrive Worldwide has a business working to educate people on our buying practices and the effects that poor buying choices can have on our individual and global lives.
Amy from Williams Photography started her own photography business. She was a delight to meet.

thanks to all who came out to support!

I recently finished some work for a new snowplow and lawn care business in town. Jeff was great to work with and I wish him all the best with his new business! Check him out.
Precision Snowplow + Lawn Care

and now, as only a good announcer can say, for some inspiration!

my dear friend suzy from suzannewilliamsdesign recently introduced me to Papermash. delightful.

isn't this wine tag of theirs so cute?
and check out that beautiful simple wine opener.

yes, please!

soup tasting challenge -- tonight!

come out and support GR local businesses (specifically Birthroot and lief design) at the soup tasting challenge tonight (10/7) from 5-8 pm at the Atomic Object on Wealthy Street. (Near the corner of Wealthy and Diamond). Various local businesses have come together to compete with soup making -- a brilliant idea! Teresa Cramer, from Birthroot, and I have entered a delicious vegan roasted tomato squash soup with quinoa. We are up against some pretty high competition though, such as the Electric Cheetah and Art of the Table -- they usually have some tasty soups! It will be a fun night!

My friend Teresa has started a business called Birthroot where she offers doula services to families that are expecting. What is a doula you might ask? (I say that because I definitely had to ask when she first told me about it). A doula is a woman who is trained to provide informational, emotional and comfort support before, during and after childbirth. Teresa is phenomenal at what she does -- so if you, or anyone that you know, is in need of a doula service, she is an excellent person to contact. (and she has super cute hand stamped business cards!)

I hope to see you tonight!
