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.
Okay, I have a confession to make. I've been keeping a dirty little secret, and it's hard for me to admit it, being a "party girl"and all...
But I hate balloons.
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.
Okay. So I know I’m new to this blog thing, and I don’t want to appear to be negative or anything, but after 16 years of doing parties I have a serious bone to pick with San Francisco…
SFers don't RSVP!
As a party planter this drives me cuh-ray-zee! I mean, seriously! Please think about this: how am I supposed to know how many fairy wings I’m supposed to order if you don’t let the host know you are coming?!
