A New Addition to our Team!

I am so excited to make this wonderful announcement! As many of you know, we launched a letterpress company not too long ago called Gwyneth Paige {Couture Letterpress}. You may also know that this company has an amazing Creative Director by the name of Andrea Reynolds. What you may not know is that Andrea has been holding down a 'day job' while also working for Gwyneth Paige.

I'm so excited to report that we've seen such amazing response to our letterpress company that I've offered Andrea a full-time position! She has resigned from her day job and now devotes 50+ hours per week to Gwyneth Paige. In addition, she will also handle the social media, public relations and marketing strategy for In Any Event. {But that won't start until after NSS!}

Please join me in welcoming Andrea to our little family! She's an amazing individual who's wildly talented and completely wonderful!

Two New Doggies!

Meet the newest members of our family! Tessa and Leo will be joining us in six short weeks. We weren't in the market for two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels but it just seemed to work out that way.

Tessa is the mother of the puppy we selected last week for our home. Unfortunately, that puppy died on Saturday from 'failure to thrive.' Since Tessa only had two pups and the other pup was spoken for, that meant our dreams of a blenheim cavalier pup weren't going to come true anytime soon.

Our amazing breeder gave us the following four options:

  1. Receive our money back

  2. Select from the two tri-color puppies available from another mother named Gretta

  3. Wait for her third dog, Aida, to deliver her first litter... with puppies available in mid-September {not an option for us since In Any Event has 6 big events on the books this fall!}

  4. Purchase Tessa since she clearly isn't a good breeder but would be an amazing pet

Well, we decided to go with option #2 and #4 and we are so excited! You should have seen our kids faces when we told them we were getting two dogs! You would have thought the house would explode from all the yelling of excitement.

So, stay tuned for more updated photos! I can't wait to be a puppy and a 1 year old doggie mama!

ArtPrize in Michigan Meetings + Events

Last week we went out and picked up the newest Michigan Meetings + Events magazine to see the featured spread of the ArtPrize 2009 Closing Gala. In Any Event loved being a part of the ArtPrize events last fall, and could not be more thrilled with the turnout of the Closing Gala event.

We mentioned before and described in detail the three different rooms that Jodi created for this event: the Organic Room, the Modern Room, and the Swanky Room. Each room was fantastic and unique, and the guests had a great night. When Michigan Meetings + Events told us they wanted to feature this in their Spring 2010 edition, we were more than happy to share this fun design with all their readers.

To get a sneak peek of the spread, you can check out our Press section on our website. But be sure to grab your own copy of the magazine today so you can read the full article.

We've Arrived in Florida!

Greetings from sunny Florida! Thought I would hop over to the blog and say 'hello.' I hope you all had a wonderful Easter! We definitely did. We found an amazing church to attend yesterday for Easter worship here in St. Augustine. What an uplifting service it was! Great preaching and a wonderful praise & worship band. Couldn't have been a better day.

Not much on the agenda today other than relaxing on the beach. The husbands will be heading over to Ron Jon's Surf Shop today to buy all the kids some boogie boards. I promise I'll bring my camera down to the beach today to capture the 'thrill of victory and the agony of defeat' as the kids tackle the waves. And I'll post some of the images tomorrow.

Have a wonderful day and I'll be in touch soon!
