Congratulations goes out to my friend Parker Simmons! She is a friend and fellow blogger who I met many years ago! I just got word that she will be making an appearance on FreeForm Wrap Battle this season and I am so proud of her! I remember a few years ago she came out to my birthday party and had a beautifully wrapped present for me. She had put a lot of thought into the gift and it was a pink sparkly box with a HUGE ribbon on top!
I still have that box right till this day and will cherish it forever! Inside was a pretty picture frame that I still have on my dresser too! So Parker being on this show is right up her alley because she is truly talented in the gift wrapping department for sure! I have another friend on the show too, Eddie Ross. Met him here in Atlanta years ago at a home interior event, he’s a fab thrifter too and can find old gems and refurbish them. So I will check both of them out. Let’s us all root for both of them. The show will premiere November 25th on Freeform check your local listings. More pictures inside and a video clip, go Parker & Eddie!
