We connected with a new friend---Jennifer Dein—who has her finger on the pulse, her radar scanning the scrap world and her antenna tuned to all things hot and happening in this ol’ paper planet.
We asked Jennifer to tell us about her favorite new products. Here’s her take on this summer’s best!

It's time to eat! Literally, and looking at all of our members "pinned" foods was not helping me write this little post on good ideas for retreat food! I kept getting distracted by all the yummy looking stuff and it made it very hard to find just the right "food" to feature today. Hold the phone, there it is . . . … Continue

And, we agree wholeheartedly! How cute is our Pinspiration of the day?
Jody Spiegelhoff of Spiegelmom pinned this one and we are in love. It'd be so cute on a fun summer page--maybe to display pics of the day you tried out the new yogurt place in the neighborhood. How about using it for a birthday party? The possibilities are endless--and sweet!

Shoes are the number one accessory; women brag about how many pairs of shoes they have in their closet. Mariah Carey had Mario Buatta designed an elegant space with gold-leaf and bleached-wood floors for her stilettos.

It was wonderful having Sydney baking and decorating with me this past week, however I admit saying goodbye has become harder as she visits more often. I began realizing our relationship will be a series of visits and goodbyes. She loves living in D.C. and will probably go to graduate school… Continue

DF asked me to bake cupcakes for the women in human resources (to thank them). With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner I thought they should be decorated for the occasion. I was inspired by, of all things, a 21 century insurance commercial. I realize how odd that may sound, but in the little… Continue

I have had a love for Judy Garland since I was a little girl; my father introduced me to The Wizard of Oz when I was two. From that moment on, I watched every Judy Garland movie I could find. I still can recall the first time I saw Judy Garland and Fred Astaire dancing and singing to… Continue
