I'm back with a new DIY!

I had the urge to do something fun on the wall of my new office as you may have seen in my first blog post! I had seen stripes and wall decals, but wanted to take it to the next level and my crazy self decided to paint a diamond print wall!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE how it turned out & I'm mostly thankful that I didn't kill my husband during the process or should I say thankful that he didn't kill me!!


I've always been a DIY girl at heart, and one of my main purposes of the blog is to share fun projects, and to show everyone that you too can DIY!
I decided to start off with something easy, low cost, and that can be used for any party!
(Uses: Cakes, Cupcakes, Wall/Table Decoration, Gift Wrapping, & the list goes on!)

A little bit of what 'Ashley Thunder Events' offers!

For the past two years I have managed The Red Barn Experience, a AMAZING wedding venue,
that was actually built for my wedding...lay it on me "You had a venue built just for your wedding??"... and yes the answer is yes; but hear me out first..
I live in beautiful Northwest Indiana, and although there are many great venues to choose from, it's slim pickings when it comes to a rustic outdoor-ish(and yes you will learn I make up my own words)wedding for 300 people... so on to PLAN B, we have the wedding on my parents beautiful farm, rent the tent, and done! Well, not so fast, as soon as my dad hears the price of a tent for one day... here comes what we like to call PLAN C! Long story short, just like that came The Red Barn Experience!
Along with the venue services offered, I have been doing day of coordination & prior day set-up for many of our brides, and have had lots of request to offer them outside of the Red Barn..below is a price sheet for the different packages at Ashley Thunder Events
It would be hard for me to post this with out a few of my favorite photos from where it all began...
All photos by Lady and the Lens Photography...Im pretty sure Im the president of her fan club!

Quit being a sissy.

Thanks so much for visiting my NEW BLOG..yay, I have a blog, haha!....I am so grateful to have found Laynie and Belle to design it for me, she is SO fun, and without even meeting each other we have constantly been on the same page; and I could not be more excited about how it turned out!!!
I've been wanting to do this for over a year now, and although I am definitely a talker, and have so many things I have wanted to share, I kept thinking to myself, yikes, a blog??!!...This is a tad bit intimidating, I kept asking my self these questions(and still do)... does anyone really care what I have to say?! I really have that much to talk about?!...are my ideas worth blogging about?!...BUT THEN...I asked myself... Am I going to keep asking myself these questions forever, or am I going to quit being a sissy and do it already?!!!!
So with that being said, here goes nothing...
I decided to start with something I recently did that really gave me the extra push of inspiration I needed...My office/craft room!
 Thanks so much for visiting, come back soon!
