In a Few Words...
Which talent would you most like to have? I wish I could sing and play multiple musical instruments…never too late right?
What do you consider your greatest achievement? With out a doubt, my two children Ava & Aidan are my greatest achievement. As far as set decorating…I am just scratching the surface.
Which word or phrase do you most overuse?
One for sure is…Right?
And…the other one might be f@#k
What do you look for on the Craft Services table? Sadly…everything…
Please name a benefit of being an SDSA member.
I have so enjoyed being a part of SDSA…I have found it to be such a great way to network with other decorators, who I otherwise would never get a chance to. There are so many people who have been supportive, welcoming and informative.
I love being a part of an organization that represents its members' talents in such a positive way.
