DIY Glitter Pillow

My obsession with glitter continues with my latest DIY craft. These glitter pillows are extremely easy to make and can add a zest to any room in your house.

Follow my step-by-step tutorial to make your own – 

Step 1:  Gather your materials – Mod Podge Fabric Glue, pillows, glitter, paint brush & tape

Step 6: Apply more glue the dried glitter – try and stay on the glitter part – this helps seal the glitter so it doesn’t go everywhere

Step 7:  Once it dries – it’s time to decorate and enjoy the fruit of your labor 🙂

Harvard Square’s Observatory Boutique

Refreshing, interesting, quaint, and beautifully eclectic are the words that come to mind when talking about my visit to Observatory in Cambridge, MA. Located about a mile outside of Harvard Square this gem of a store is worth the walk (or … Continue reading

One Year Later

oneyear later

It’s been exactly one year since I left my job and traveled the country in my boyfriend’s truck for three months!  I really cannot believe it’s been a year… It seems as though I appreciate the adventure now more than ever and continually thank myself for finding the courage to take such a big leap of faith.

When I told people I quit my job to go on this trip the reactions were varied. Some people thought it was the best idea ever, while others thought I had ended my career.  The good news is, my career has not ended but has taken an amazing and positive direction into me opening my own marketing & creative services company called Creative TK Consulting!

It’s funny because my company was not in my grand plan, but to be honest,  I didn’t have a grand plan.  After returning from my trip I began doing marketing for my sister, owner of Dragonfly Photography, in Newburyport.  We would go on various networking events together and quickly I had small businesses asking me for marketing assistance. I thought about starting my own consulting company for about for a week and decided to go for it – after all what did I have to lose!

Some people would call me crazy for not doing intense market research before starting a business… but I just had a gut feeling it was going to turn out ok!  It’s amazing when you have an intuition and can freely run with it.  That doesn’t happen very often in our planned/calculated lives.

Each one of my clients is different and I guess that’s why I find this job perfect for me.  On any given day I could be planning a grand opening party, taking photos of meat (yes, meat), convincing the papers to do a feature, writing a grassroots marketing plan or doing invoices (yay).  Every day is different and everyday is meaningful to these small business owners. I really love being apart of their team and helping them succeed!

I hope you have had an amazing year as well!
