Happy Thursday Everyone!
Just three more days until Christmas!! Have you finished all of your holiday shopping yet? Gathering around the Christmas tree and enjoying the lights…along with a little hot cocoa is definitely one of my favorite things to do this time of year!
Season’s Greetings Everyone!
I hope you all are enjoying this super fun holiday season with lots of family, friends, and of course sugary treats! This week, I wanted to open up my home to you and share some of my holiday home décor as well as a few family traditions while we count down these last few days before Christmas!
This time of year is so much fun and I absolutely love decorating and creating a winter wonderland of sorts that both family and friends can enjoy. Of course we do not get any snow here in Arizona, but I still like to cozy up in my home (even if it is 70 degrees outside!). One of my favorite furniture pieces to decorate is the banquet table in our formal dining room. This is always the first thing people see upon walking into my home and has continued to be quite the conversation starter! (more…)
I have a blast every week hosting the RG Deals. I love your level of engagement and enthusiasm you bring to every broadcast. I get a kick out of reading all of your comments; they definitely make me smile. Seriously, though what better way to start off the week than with a little paper crafting fun. Every week it’s my goal to offer you a little laughter and show you some fun techniques to elevate your craft. We even offer RG product at discounted prices with free shipping. What the what! (more…)
I am constantly asked what is it that I do when I travel to China.
Truth be told, I do a lot of things in a short amount of time. My primary objectives are to source new products and meet with our current manufacturers. It’s important for me to test the products and manage all aspects of the development stages through the release.
As the demand for technology increases, our communication also changes making it easier than ever to stay connected. With more people using email, text, and Skype as a way to communicate, has it replaced the art of creating something special and unique for someone we care about? Using text and email is an immediate form of communication; generally, there isn’t a lot of thought that goes into crafting a text message. For instance; How was your day? How are you doing? Happy Birthday! Congratulations, etc. However, I do believe these messages are originated to be personal in nature and come from the heart, unfortunately, can easily be forgotten. With the invention and use of smartphones, our attention spans have decreased to around eight seconds. That’s why there is something to be said for creating and sending a handmade project. (more…)
As many of you know my life, these days is spent on planes, trains, and automobiles. I go from one event to the next; this gives me an incredible opportunity to share my passion for paper crafting, creating lasting memories along the way. If you follow me on social media, then you know I share a few hashtags that symbolize my journey (#projectme, #sharethejourney, and #rgsignature) just to name a few.
If you have known me for a while, you may also know that my design work goes far beyond paper and stamps. My love for different design platforms transcends into fashion, home decor, and DIY projects.
For this post, I want to give you a look into my home as I create some DIY pieces for this Halloween! (more…)

Hey guys! I want to share with you this talented group of ladies that came for a visit! The Make Amazing Design Team flew in last week and stayed until this past Sunday. They flew in from different parts of the US, and as far as Switzerland and Australia! Although the entire design team couldn’t make it, there was still lots to learn, fun to have, photos to take and videos to be made! And add to that list – many laughs! Our talented group of ladies that joined us on the retreat were Isha Gupta, Mou Saha, Beck Beattie, Mariana Grigsby, Patricia Roebuck, Laura Williams and Michelle Woerner. I must add to this list our talented Concept Artist & Designer: Kim Kesti and Concept Designer Shannon Smith. (more…)
