This week I had two library appearances: one in Chinatown, and one down near the ballpark at the Mission Bay branch.

Every time I do a library art program I am struck by the overpowering urge to jump up on my soapbox and sing the praises of our local library system. (Thank you, Ben Franklin!)

The children's librarians across our city are amazing. They offer so many services, both educating and entertaining, to so many on only a meager budget.

On Wednesday, my team and I gathered at one of my amazing client's houses, as we often do before any major event. This time was no different than others: we came with a van full of crafts, props, and costume changes, all of us filled with excitement and anticipation¦ The only difference was, we weren't there to do a party. We were there to film video clips for our upcoming website!

My client had graciously offered up her house as a filming location, so after promising to make sure not to spook the dog and to clean up after ourselves, we overtook the kitchen.

When I look back at the path my life has taken, it's pretty clear to me that I was meant to be a kids party planner.

Hey everyone!  My name is Sophie.  I'm a kid's party planner and it goes without saying that I have possibly one of the best jobs in the world.  Or maybe it does need to be said -- so I'll tell you all about it!

The job fits me perfectly because I'm basically a "jack of all trades, master of none"... which some folks might find depressing, but in my line of work, it makes me a goddess.  (And I don't say that lightly!)
