about me photo

Welcome to our shop! We are so glad you are here! Please feel free to send an email if you have any questions. It is an absolute joy to share my creativity with you and help plan the perfect celebration. Our goal is to make your celebration planning a breeze and make you look like a natural party planner.

I am married to my best friend. I am the mom to a feisty toddler, 2 step-children (age 21 and 25) and 1 granddaughter (almost 4).  Life is never dull around here! 

After living all over the United States, I now call Kansas home. That big white barn you see behind most of our pictures is in the field across the street from my studio window. It’s close to 100 years old and was the main dairy barn for my husband’s family farm at one point in its life. That’s right I said field. We live in no-where land Kansas, right in the middle of farm fields.

I studied Interior Design at Oklahoma University.  After working in corporate America for 10 years, I felt my creativity wasn’t being used to the fullest.  I have always had a passion for party planning.  In 2009 I took a leap of faith and started design girl studio on Etsy. The rest is history.

This year we are celebrating our 8th year of creating party decorations and serving over 20,000 customers. We are so thankful so many customers have trusted us with their decoration needs!
