This table, which I shamelessly picked from my neighbors trash, has been sitting in my basement for 2 years. So I figured enough was enough and got busy on refurbishing the poor thing this past weekend. By using chalkboard paint … Continue reading
Refreshing, interesting, quaint, and beautifully eclectic are the words that come to mind when talking about my visit to Observatory in Cambridge, MA. Located about a mile outside of Harvard Square this gem of a store is worth the walk (or … Continue reading
Spring Where Are You? I am dying for Spring weather to arrive, as I’m sure all of us are! To get my apartment into Spring mode I got some inspiration from a collage ProFlowers shared with me! Check out their … Continue reading
It’s been exactly one year since I left my job and traveled the country in my boyfriend’s truck for three months! I really cannot believe it’s been a year… It seems as though I appreciate the adventure now more than ever and continually thank myself for finding the courage to take such a big leap of faith.
When I told people I quit my job to go on this trip the reactions were varied. Some people thought it was the best idea ever, while others thought I had ended my career. The good news is, my career has not ended but has taken an amazing and positive direction into me opening my own marketing & creative services company called Creative TK Consulting!
It’s funny because my company was not in my grand plan, but to be honest, I didn’t have a grand plan. After returning from my trip I began doing marketing for my sister, owner of Dragonfly Photography, in Newburyport. We would go on various networking events together and quickly I had small businesses asking me for marketing assistance. I thought about starting my own consulting company for about for a week and decided to go for it – after all what did I have to lose!
Some people would call me crazy for not doing intense market research before starting a business… but I just had a gut feeling it was going to turn out ok! It’s amazing when you have an intuition and can freely run with it. That doesn’t happen very often in our planned/calculated lives.
Each one of my clients is different and I guess that’s why I find this job perfect for me. On any given day I could be planning a grand opening party, taking photos of meat (yes, meat), convincing the papers to do a feature, writing a grassroots marketing plan or doing invoices (yay). Every day is different and everyday is meaningful to these small business owners. I really love being apart of their team and helping them succeed!
I hope you have had an amazing year as well!

Now that I am 30 I have been a bridesmaid in eight (I consider myself an expert) lovely weddings! After each wedding the dress seems to just sit in my closet never to be worn again. To put my dresses … Continue reading
Where you decide to stay during a vacation can sometimes make or break your trip! Since I am not really a Marriott type traveler I did extensive research into finding cool and unique places to stay while in Thailand. To … Continue reading
My vintage photo shoot with Dragonfly Photography continued; taking us from a local horse farm to a deserted state park in Newburyport. It was slightly cold out, but quick photography and spinning around helped make the shoot a blast! My … Continue reading

Our adventure in Thailand continued with a short stop in Chiang Mai’s Old City and then a three day adventure at a Eco Friendly Bungalow called Spicy Villa. Our favorite part of this trip was by far our stay at … Continue reading
