In The Spotlight: Jenny from Crossing The Bugger-Dixon Line!

If you like parties then you probably have already seen Jenny's fabulous work around the web (and on Bird's Party Magazine...). She's an extremely talented, creative stylist and very sweet girlfriend whose work inspires and impresses even the most discerning of professional stylists like Kate Landers!

Yep folks, Jenny has recently worked alongside Kate to create a stunning baby shower in honor of Kate's little baby boy, and in turn it's a huge honor for me to have her as a blogging contributor - So please help me welcome Jenny by leaving some love in the comments? :)

A little about me...

I am a Boston native residing in the Laurel Highlands of Western PA. I have been told that my creativity started as soon as I could hold a crayon. Art has always been a constant in my life. I love to draw, paint, craft, and have recently discovered an interest in graphic design and photography. I studied Art and Psychology at Gettysburg College, University of Essex in England, and Penn State University. With a Masters in Counselor Education, my career began in Recruitment, but the birth of my son lead me to a new, and much more challenging career as a stay-at-home mom.

I am the official party planner of two bugger boys, ages 3 and 5. When I'm not cooking, shuttling kids, mediating disputes, or pitching baseballs in the back yard, you can find me blogging and styling parties. I published my first post one year ago and cannot believe how much it has changed my life. I am most proud of being a design team member for Whisker Graphics, contributor on Piggy Bank Parties, having a party feature on Amy Atlas, and being contributor for Bird's Party Magazine. 

and my signtaure style...

Creative, crafty, and budget friendly. I am a total DIYer who loves spray paint, thrift store finds, and party printables. I believe any party can look completely fabulous without spending a fortune. 

My favorite piece of work so far (and why)...

I am most proud of my son's April Showers Party. The theme was completely unique and full of fun details. I monogrammed umbrellas with buttons as favors, hung clear umbrellas upside down with rainbow lanterns, strung paper straw garlands, raindrops, and clouds everywhere. The theme perfectly fit my rain boot wearing, puddle jumping son. I knew the party was a complete success when my oldest son asked if he could have the same exact party for his June birthday. 

On my to do list for 2012 (work aspirations, goal, dreams or projects)

2012 is already proving to be busy! I have many parties planned for this year. They are each proving to be my favorite themes yet!  I look forward to working with new vendors and creating many new party tutorials to share. On a personal note, my family has a big project on the horizon. We are currently designing our dream home and hope to break ground in the summer months. I am sure you will see a few interior design/building related posts from me in the future.
