Despite Halloween being over, I thought it might be fun to share some photos from our last big Halloween party, which was held on Halloween night. You may recall I blogged about these amazing, thematic Halloween parties which we have created throughout the years. After 7 years of amazing events my client and I decided this was to be our grand finale.

Together, we pulled out all of the stops to make this a Halloween to remember.

Every year I have the pleasure of working with LifeMoves in San Mateo County where we live.  LifeMoves provides housing and services for families in crisis or transition. Their mission is to keep families together, provide housing, and allow their clients to maintain a semblance of a “normal” life while they weather their individual challenges.  They provides safe shelter, nutritious food, counseling services, therapeutic childcare and afterschool activities as well as job and housing search assistance.

Before Scott and I set out for our Sticky Fingers book tour, our social media team sat me down and informed me that it was my responsibility to take multiple photos daily and write captions about our adventures on the road.  Being that I’m not one who really likes to be photographed, I balked, ”Do I have to - why"? I whined like a 5 year old not willing to pose for the family Christmas portrait.

Here’s a riddle for you….

When is a book not a book?  


When it’s a key to unlock doors!

Let me explain….

Well...Bay Area Maker Faire 2014 is over, which leaves a somewhat empty feeling.  It will be another full year before I’ll be surrounded by such an abundant amount of creative energy. That makes me a tiny bit sad.
