Hi! My name is Courtney and I am so happy you found me! I am a Southern California crafting mama of two sweet boys who keep me busy, entertained and overjoyed. I am married to my high school sweetheart who is one good-looking, song-writing, tender-hearted steal of a man. He puts up with me getting glitter all over the house and keeps me creative and our marriage fun.


I used to be a wedding planner and designer (I founded Joyful Weddings & Events joyfulweddingsandevents.com) but handed it off to one of my planners when baby boy #2 came along in 2011. I now run a sweet little etsy shop, Joyful Joyful Designs (joyfuljoyful.etsy.com) selling paper banners and flags for weddings, parties and moments of cheer.


Things that make me smile: my fam, Jesus, music, tea, dancing, tasty food, anything categorized as dessert or chocolate, theater, peonies and dahlias, the beach, the rain- did I mention dessert?
