The Villa Park Women’s League is a motivated, talented group of women. They crossed every T, dotted every i, and left no stone unturned organizing their Home Tour. As a result, the event went off without a hitch. It was a gorgeous group of homes with a huge turnout of attendees.

I decorated three tables at an historic home on a large lot with a mature citrus grove.

Look for our ad in the April issue coming out this week! Our ad is an all-new design in bright colors. Let us know what you think. Not only did we redesign the ad, we submitted it to the paper as a file in Photoshop’s format for the first time. Before, we would submit the ads as .jpgs, and they would basically recreate them. The printing came out really crisp and bright this time!

The Foothills Sentry is mailed to homes in East Orange, Orange Park Acres, Villa Park, Anaheim Hills, Cowan Heights, Crawford Canyon, Silverado/Modjeska Canyon Areas, and North Tustin. It is also distributed free at newsstands in Orange and elsewhere.
