Ten23 Designs ONE Year Anniversary

This Saturday, October 23rd, Ten23 Designs celebrated it's ONE year anniversary... or as I called it, our 1st birthday.  Ten23 stands for October (10th month) 23rd. This is a special date for me, as it is my birthday.

I was touched to have some of my vendor friends donate special goodies for my BIG DAY personalized with my logo on it.

Cherin from Customized Wedding Creations hand painted a runner for me that I turned into a pillow.  I totally LOVE it.  It now sits on my office chair and gives me support throughout my work day, just like Cherin does.

Dorinda of Favors by Dorinda made the CUTEST lollipops and mini chocolate bars with my logo on it. I was almost sad to see people leave with them but hey... that's what favors are for.  Luckily, I was able to nab a few for myself as a keepsake.  Of course I will have to eat the chocolate but will keep the wrapper.

Marni the Cardbox Diva, owner of Creative Custom Cardboxes hooked me up with a bling bling cardbox, complete with logo face plate. This will get plenty of use next year as I join the expo, and event show circuit.  It will be great to hold giveaway entries at my booth.

Angie of S & A Events made the tastiest treats... an apple puff tart and an asiago, pepperoni & basil puff pastry... oh YUM!!! The apple puff tarts were gone so quickly with requests for more. I am glad I was able to try one before they were gone. 

Angie also created the BEAUTIFUL floral centerpieces that were created with flowers my logo color with touches of orange & blue... because everything should have a touch of GATOR in it!

I was happy to also have the privilege to display a handcrafted ring bearer pillow made by Victoria Joanne of HCC Hand Crafted Creations as a collaboration project we did together, an invitation sample from Beth of Forever Friends, also as a collaboration project we did together and was able to get the word out about Shop to Stop Slavery, a company owned by a friend that helps educate consumers on modern day slave labor.

The ONE year celebration was a success... filled with family and friends.

Thank you to all who participated and all who sent their well wishes... I am looking forward to a productive year TWO!
