These ladies are all so creative, and I cannot wait to introduce them to you.

2014 CREATIVE TEAM:

Hi! I’m Sarah Faubus, one of two co-authors of boxwoodclippings.com (along with my sister, Emily). I’m an English lass, married to a Californian man, living in Utah. I crave England on a daily basis, but when I’m there I miss my California King bed and Target! I earned my BFA in photography from Brigham Young University, but I hate shooting when I have to, and LOVE it when I don’t. Nothing gives me more pleasure than turning the ordinary into something beautiful (except perhaps the thrill of a great bargain)! I’m constantly redesigning and reorganizing living spaces in my head and can’t sit through a movie without being distracted by the set design. For me, any excuse is a good one for a get-together (like throwing a Super Bowl party and never watching any football). I’m a proud aunt who adores my nieces and nephews more than any aunt ever has. I eat chocolate for breakfast more than I care to admit and enjoy singing the wrong lyrics to every song (and I generally sing the loudest to Kylie Minogue or Celine Dion).

Jenny - Party&Printables Contributor

I’m Jenny Raulli, editor and everything else of Bloom Designs Online.   My passion for parties, paper, personalized, pretty came from being a stay at home mom to four little ones under eleven.  We have lots to celebrate at our house!  Party styling is the perfect combination of my former life as an art history major and elementary teacher and my most favorite roles- mommy and wife to my hubby of 14 years.  My blog is filled with holiday ideas, party planning tips and ways to make each day bloom.

Hello. I’m Melissa. I’m a photographer, recipe developer, Urban homesteader, food blogger, momma and general lover of all things delicious. My blog, Bless this Mess, is an honest picture of a happy small town life. You’ll find posts about raising backyard chickens, remodeling our house while living in the mess and lots and lots of family-friendly recipes, dessert included. When it comes to food I love crusty bread, Mexican, boiled eggs, all things chocolate, and dill pickles. When it comes to blogging I love meeting new people, so pop over and say hello when you have a minute.

Bev - Sewing

I was super blessed to grow up in a creative family of artists and seamstresses.. I began sewing as a teenager and made my own clothes and room décor even then. That love for DIY, crafting, and sewing has grown to include jewelry making, furniture refinishing and anything else I can learn. My style could probably be described best as a mix between modern and vintage – I love taking old styles and making them new and fun again. I am currently living in gorgeous Carlsbad, CA with my husband, two teenagers, and two cats – which are often more trouble than the two teenagers.

Kristin - Recipes

Hi! I’m Kristin and I’m the creative mind behind Yellow Bliss Road, where you’ll find tons of recipes, free printables, and a little decor and DIY thrown in for good measure. Life can be complicated, so I am all about simplifying wherever I can – from food to decor to DIY – because I believe that it doesn’t have to be elaborate or extravagant to be amazing. I am a single adoptive mom with a daughter in Preschool and a son in Kindergarten. My kids are a handful, I’m exhausted and most days my house is a mess – and I’m okay with that!
