I’M THANKFUL FOR…..

Beach 10-2015

I am very fortunate to say I have many blessings to be thankful for in my life.

One of those blessings is my career.

I get to work from home in a Studio filled with marshmallows and sugar.

The Marshmallow Studio - Home Office Tour

I’ve designed + created sugar art. I’ve taught classes + workshops. I’ve traveled the country. I’ve attended awesome shows and conferences. I’ve written a book. I’ve worked with incredible brands and companies. I’ve learned so much about blogging, photography, social media, digital marketing, branding and more. I’ve made good friends and met some amazing people along the way. All because my mom convinced me I should start a business making marshmallow pops.
