10 Years in Business & Best Parties!

WOW! WOW! WOW! How is this even possible? 10 years ago I hosted a fun and creative zebra party for my daughter Ashley who was turning 4 at the time and phew!….little did I know how life was going to change after that!

Life has definitely had its ups and downs but I am not going to dwell on the past and beat myself up because in all honesty I have learned so much, grown and become a better woman over all. I went through an awful divorce back in 2014, moved 6 times since then, lost my sweet cousin to breast cancer at the age of 34, numerous court appearances, was in 2 car accidents, lots of medical issues, lost my party retail store in 2015, financial struggles, on and on BUT life is a gift and I refuse to play victim and be stuck in a rut. Social media has a way to show a “perfect life” which none of us have. Fast forward to early 2018 when I rebranded from “A to Zebra Celebrations” to “Style with Nancy”. I also met my wonderful man Rob in January 2018 who literally was heaven sent. He has been one of the biggest blessings in my life and I am so thankful. We just purchased our first home last month and feeling overjoyed and excited to create new memories, decorate and NEVER move again! It’s so much work…LOL!

And that’s the list of the top favorites and most popular parties! I have learned so much over the years and even my party styling has gotten better I think 😉 I mean this in a very humble way but as you know I LOVE LOVE decorating parties so I am always learning new ways to make it better! I wish my daughters were into celebrating a lot more because they no longer like parties as much. For this reason and others I decided to start my very own YouTube channel so I can keep creating and sharing with you all my crafty ideas! I will start with just one video per week and it will be on Fridays because it’s called “Frugal Fridays” 😉 I hope you follow and subscribe so you can learn some great tips and easy crafts!

THANK YOU ALL for following my blog! I know I have not been consistent but I am excited to be back in the game with lots of new content and ideas for you! I am finishing 2019 with many exciting things and feeling incredibly blessed for everyone who has supported me along the way. Would you do me a huge favor and leave a comment letting me know how long you have been following my business? THANK YOU!

Much love to you all! Stay tuned for more…..
