Steve Jobs quote

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know can already guess the answer to this question…. Where have I been?


Saying our goodbyes to our Las Vegas home.

The truth is that I’ve been going through a nightmare for the past two years (more on that later). However, I couldn’t be more happy to tell you that we’re in a better place now.


Just arrived at our new house on Camano Island.

Back at the end of April we moved to a small quiet island in the state of Washington. Life is sweet here, let me tell ya!

Camano Island

Surrounded by love, nature and peace .

You can expect to see some home decorating posts with before + after shots + DIYs, crafts and more. Who’s excited?!

 Meanwhile, I leave you here with a tease of what’s to come….

The Marshmallow Studio recipe



Greatest hand lotion ever for sugar artists and people who work with their hands.

This is NOT a sponsored post. This is your friend telling you that you need this hand cream.

It’s done wonders on my hands and cuticles since I started using it almost two years ago. Why has it taken me this long to pass on this tip to you… I don’t know. I’m really sorry!

I first learned about O’Keeffe’s Working Hands hand cream at SNAP in 2014. They gave me a little sample tub to try out.

Well, I went through that pretty fast. I immediately went out to Target and got a full size tub. O’Keeffe’s is the ONLY lotion that can tackle on marshmallows.

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.
