Prism Awards

 I am so proud to announce that my project partner, Stephanie Morrison, and I were the recipients of the 2011 Gold Prism Award for Clubhouse Design from the BAGB (Builder's Association of Greater Boston). These awards take place every other year and feature some of the most talented designers in the industry.

 The PRISM (Prestigious Results in Sales and Marketing) Awards pay tribute to housing industry professionals for excellence in building, design, sales and marketing, and a myriad of other categories. Winning a coveted PRISM Award is a sign of excellence in your field and recognition of superior achievement.

Our second bit of exciting news is the opening of our new Marketplace.
This marketplace will feature many of the items that we have featured in our most popular residential and commercial designs. We are committed to bringing you some of the best designers like sustainable furnishings by Martha's Vineyard Furniture and handblown glass designs from Tracy Glover Studios.  We will also be featuring some wonderful nature inspired accessories from all over the world. We encourage you to pop over to the website and take a look and come back often as we will continue to add items as we finish new spaces.
Like us on facebook and you are automatically entered to win a $50 gift certificate to use on the site. Have friends and family like us too and for each person you bring we will add your name in again!

A few more announcements include the upcoming Festival of Trees on Thursday December 1 from 10 until 8 in downtown Exeter, NH.
Each year we are so proud to be involved in the Chamber Children’s Fund Festival of Trees. Fifty live trees are decorated each Christmas holiday by local businesses and families and then auctioned off in a wonderful evening of good cheer and charity. Over the years, we have made Tinker Bell fly atop a magical pirate tree, the circus has come to town complete with Dumbo spinning gracefully above, and last year we dressed up a fabulous spinning turquoise tree with Fuzzles and a giant monkey.  This year’s tree promises to have people standing on their heads!

The Chamber Children’s Fund, established in 1989, raises money that is turned into vouchers from local area merchants.  These vouchers are distributed through local social service agencies to their clients.  Parents can take these vouchers to participating merchants and use them as they would a gift certificate to buy clothing, outwear, or bedding for children up to 18 years of age.  The fund supports children up to 18 years of age and serves families in Brentwood, East Kingston, Epping, Exeter, Kensington, Kingston, Newfields, Newmarket, Raymond and Stratham.

That same weekend please join us for Art on Union Street
 I am so pleased to be a part of this wonderful weekend this year.
This event will feature a torrent of talented artists presenting  jewelry,
photography, oil paintings, metal work, and so much more.
I will be conducting some "Speed Designing" sessions. Bring your photos, designs, drawings, or just inspiration and sign up for a 20 minute slot. I will have all my paint samples and CAD wear, so we can redesign any problem spot. To sign up for a slot on Friday or Saturday just pop over to to reserve your spot!
