Our next guest is Chelsea from {frolic}, an inspiring blog that you must check out. And if you’re in the Portland area Chelsea would love to help design your next event!

Kelly asked me to write a little about my creative process. I tend not to follow rules. But, I do follow a few tips. Whether I am working on an event or a photo shoot, I try to remind myself of a few things. Maybe these will be helpful to some of you trying to plan a wedding or party.

* Follow your instinct.

*Inspiration can be found anywhere.

*Consider the location and/or the purpose. Let ideas grow from that.

*Take a break if you are feeling stifled.

*Start over if necessary.

*Seek out an opinion (but not too many!)

*Don’t forget to have fun; it will help you stay inspired.

Here are a few of my current inspirations:

Donna Hay always inspires me [above & below].

Jane Packer’s website is filled with floral goodies.


Roland Bello’s photography website is my first stop when I am looking for a little eye candy.

Lately I love pink. This image is from stylist Jane Roarty.

Thanks for letting me visit, everyone! Come say hello over at my blog, Frolic!
