The Journey Begins

The only impossible journey is the one you never begin – Anthony Robbins

Hey guys… it’s finally here! I’ve always wanted to blog about party planning and events so I am happy that I have found the courage to begin my journey with you.

I recently had a health scare and spent two whole weeks alone at home with my calico cat (Smudge), avoiding any sort of communication with the outside world. I removed myself from social media, avoided my phone and took some well needed time out from my day-to-day job.

This wasn’t and isn’t healthy. Although Smudgey appreciated the extra snuggles, I wouldn’t recommend spending THAT much time in solitude if you’re naturally a sociable person.

Amongst all the snuggles and overthinking I spent my time reflecting; what is it that makes me happy?

Not an easy question I know, so with all of the free time I had, I practiced mindfulness and observed what my mind would casually wander off to.

I noticed that in my empty mind space I was distracted by so many design ideas for my home, for themed parties, and ideas for craft projects. The ideas were too much sometimes! I noticed my fingers would uncontrollably tap to a favourite party planner blog (my favourite being HWTM) or endlessly scroll through Pinterest.

Yes! This is what makes me happy! Seeing someone’s vision come to life, seeing someone’s creativity and attention to detail come together to bring that magical end result. Just like a jigsaw puzzle (a stylish one of course – not one of those baked beans puzzles!) every little piece adds to the overall picture.

So my intention for this blog is to have a place to share ideas and inspiration for all special occasions from baby showers, themed parties to weddings. Please follow my blog for helpful tips, easy DIY craft projects and recipes that you will want to try out at home.

Finally; I am a list person! So you will see lots and lots of lists.

  1. Hi Corrina! I’m from the [dead] Pool (pun intended) 🙂
    Welcome to blogging. Reading that you’re a ‘list person’, perhaps you’d like to try this ‘listy thing’:
    1). open a new PAGE (no need to save this just yet)
    2). type this (along with the bracket): [archives]
    3). click ‘preview’

    Voila! You have a page of ALL your posts. If you’d like to know more, check here:

    Good luck! 🍸
