My first blog EVER!

Ok, so I'm a little new to the whole blog craze but for the last month, it has pretty much consumed my free time!! I have scrap booked for quite some time now but I have just recently joined the paper crafting frenzy from cards to treat bags and more. So I thought I'd create a blog.....but I guess I should first give you a little of info about me.

My name is Trisha and I'm 24. I attended Marywood University for a year but then transferred and graduated from Rutgers University with a degree in Business Management and currently help my family run their own business...a donut shop that some of you may know as Dunkin' Donuts! {And if your wondering if I eat donuts all the time?? My dad's worked for the company for the last 16 years and we have owned our own shops for the last 12 years so I'm pretty sick of donuts :D Although I will have a munchkin here and there ;)} I recently got married in July, to an amazing man, who is silly, goofy, a sweetheart, and my hero! He is in the Air Force, so he's been my hero since we started dating for his civil duty of protecting our country. He is Greek and I have now taken on a name that is 15 letters long (yes that's right...15 letters long)and a good foot taller than me. We have a 1 year old black and brown tabby cat named Link. Our friends and family think he looks like a bright eyed tiger :) Any who, we're currently living in New Jersey but have orders to relocate to SUNNY side Florida soon! And let me tell you after all the snow from this year we're ready for it!

As I said, I have been scrap booking for some time now and just recently entered into the paper crafting craze. However, I also have another hobby that I'm very busy with. I decorate cakes. Its weird because people ask me how i got into it and I just tell them that we at one point owned a Baskin Robbins and my mother was a primary cake decorator there. And I remember on the weekends and days off of school, sitting in the cake room and watching her decorate ice cream cakes for hours. Although it may sound boring to some, i loved watching and helping assemble the cakes. Now, I could NEVER decorate ice cream cakes because the time has to be right to avoid melting but my mother was (and probably still is) a pro at doing it! So i always had a passion for it and than decided to take a class at Michael's (which by the way, my husband lovingly volunteered to take the class with me :D) and 1 turned into 4 classes and now I'm hooked. I then got my best friend from college,Evelyn, hooked just from talking about the class and she ventured out and took 3 of the classes. So now the 2 of us work on a lot of cakes together ( she has a HUGE number and friends and family who are always hosting parties) but I still decorate with my mom and sister a lot. My sister is in a vocational high school pursuing culinary and considering pastry. (go figure huh?!?)

So to not make my first post the most boring post, I'll end by say that I'm excited to start the blogging journey of paper crafts, cake decorating, and life lessons. I hope that you'll continue on this "journey" with me and we can share ideas and fun projects. I'm still new to the blog world so any advice please don't hesitate to contact me or if you have any questions, please let me know!
