Blending my cosmetology experience with photography Is the perfect combination for creating memorable portraits. We also offer destination photography.

Green compass

Additional Information

I’ve written many spotlights for this company, and love the true back story of all the business owners I interview, but Patty Hopson’s story not only impaired me, but gave me pause to think.

Less than two years ago Patty Hopson was plagued by severe crippling chronic pain. She sought Doctor after Doctor to no avail. The pain became so insurmountable, that she had to limit her work schedule to maybe 1 or 2 days a week. She became incapacitated, not only by pain, but also depression and anxiety, all the trappings of being unwell. She saw no end insight. One day a pastor’s wife introduced her to CBD products from Green Compass. She says the results were nothing short of miraculous. What turned out to be conditions and not limited to like, spinal stenosis, bone spurs, damaged vertebrae amongst other things, were reduced and managed by these products.
She then did her research. CBD products which come from hemp, the non psychoactive part of the marijuana plant, has such healing properties, many are calling it the miracle product of the century and its own economic engine in and of itself.
Green Compass is meticulous with their whole process.
From the farmers, seed selections, soil and water testing, to hand pruning.
ZERO pesticides, NON GMO
Organically grown....Following strict growing, cultivating and extracting methods
Each batch is 3rd party quality/purity tested and has its own certificate of analysis (COA) that can be provided to advocates AND customers!         
Green Compass is the Brand and Green compass is the distributor. Very few companies can claim that.
She was sold and her life couldn’t be in more of an upswing. When she described her massive bout with pain and injury, it’s a wonder she could get out of bed, let alone steam the charge for these incredible healing products. Her products range in price from $12 to $250, depending on your ailments and what you’re using them for.
Education is key, and Patty has a wealth of knowledge to start anyone on a path to wellness. She’s a team leader with Green Compass, and speaks volumes of the financial opportunities that come with being a representative of these products.
I’ve done my own research too, and nobody can deny that the world of healing is on to something now that these products are legal thanks to the 2018 Farmers Act, separating these incredible products from a schedule I drug. These days the world is her own farm to plant the seeds of wellness and wealth for Patty and those who come on board. It was such a pleasure learning more about these products, and will certainly be trying out for myself.

Once upon a Theme

Additional Information

When entering the space of Once upon a Theme, it is easy to see this is no ordinary children’s venue. There is nothing more beautiful and nothing that should be celebrated more than a child’s imagination, and Once upon a Theme completes that need in spaces.

When you enter you are taken back by the ornate princess furniture that gives any little girl the feel that they are a princess indeed. Pedicure stations, costumes, an actual runway for a fashion show, and even their favorite princesses making an appearance.

In the world of events for children your host Kirsis, has left nothing unturned. She waited over 10 years to acquire and renovate this two story establishment so kids can truly be kids, right in her home town of Hackettstown. There are boys theme parties too, on the upstairs there is a virtual reality video arcade and accommodations for boys, but in this day and age Once upon a Theme, celebrates inclusion and will do anything necessary to provide the most magic for their very esteemed guests. I can hear the excitement in your hosts voices and the passion she has for all kids.

She has the philosophy that we’re all special, especially the ones who are there to celebrate, maybe just being a kid. I wish I had a daughter, I’d schedule a princess extravaganza right now, for the near future.

Play Away Indoor Play Place


Today’s hectic schedules, and parents wanting to help their kids exhaust their energy, allows for the genius idea of Playaway. It is a magical space that not only engages children’s minds, but opens them up to endless imaginative play.

There’s arts and crafts, music, and a woodland themed indoor play park, perfect for letting kids make great use of their minds and their energy.

Your host Haley is an expert at childcare, and has been a preschool teacher. She created the space to be fun safe, and a way for parents to be engaged in the wonder that’s in their children’s eyes.

It’s a safe place, but not a drop off, parents must be present, but I believe that keeps them connected to what personalities their children develop. With so much to do, it’s no wonder that children don’t want to leave, and can’t wait to come back.

Specific classes and programs are on the website, but the true success of this establishment is in the tender laughter of its most esteemed clients.

Our Woodland Homes:

Doctor Fox – Veterinarian Hospital
Rabbit’s Cottage – Tea Room
Officer Raccoon – Police Station
Honey Bear Market – Food Market

Olde Tyme Barber Shop

Our Spotlight

These days with community and professionalism so desperately needed, I had the pleasure of learning about a Barbershop that certainly scores a point on that scoreboard.

Olde Tyme Barber Shop sets itself apart from the average barber establishment, by creating not just a safe, communal atmosphere, but digs deep to help the community it serves.

Perfectly equipped to working with women as well as men,  they excel in bringing the best looks to their clients. They are experts in beard trimming and maintenance, and use both scissors and clippers for that perfect look. For a little more pampering men, ask for a hot lather straight edge cleanup.  Feeling good about one’s appearance is like no other. Their warm and inviting surroundings, and camaraderie with the clientele makes the chore of maintaining ones looks a pure joy.

What impressed me the most about Donna, the proprietor, is her commitment to her community and our servicemen and women. She’s dedicates every resource of her faculty to be a force for good. She offers discounts for police, firefighters, seniors, and military. She has two sons who answered the call to service. One after two tours in Iraq is protecting us as an officer. The other son is a “lifer” as she so proudly puts it.

There are many businesses that are involved with local community affairs, but nothing can compare to the outreach Donna is inspired to keep working on. Her establishment is the optimal experience in old time service and expertise. Her love for our country is a wonderful reminder that we can all be a force for good.

Additional Information

When interviewing Joey Tietz for this spotlight, it became evident that his company is aptly named. His company doesn’t just start projects, they attack them with a resounding dedication to excellence. It’s not that I associate Pit-bulls with attacking, it’s just a play on words, I love pit bulls. With that said, Joey puts it this way, it’s mathematics, if a project isn’t done to perfection, he needs to take valuable time from another to correct, and or change. His dedication to excellence starts from conception of a project, where he has the vision to give a client more of what they want, and less of what they think they’re limited to.

He can see things and possibilities that a client may not have imagined, that gives that extra touch of luxury or functionality for the clients project. Homeowners whether new, or long time residents all find the need for a bathroom or kitchen renovation at some point. Pitbull plumbing has the skill and vision to go beyond a clients expectations, and the job is done right the first time. He treats every project big or small with the ultimate attention to detail that fixes any needs the homeowner is facing.

Top to bottom, and what is seen and unseen is all crafted to perfection by a team that Joey holds in the same regard as himself. It is said that we are a result of who we surround ourselves with. This idealism is exactly what shows that Pitbull Plumbing’s professionalism is paramount to their operation. I found myself as a writer really impressed by Joey’s passion for perfection, whether it’s fixing a a terrible job from a typical lackluster so called expert, or starting a completely new renovation for a bathroom or kitchen, Pitbull Plumbing is your key to getting exactly what you want, and didn’t know you needed. In short, the industry can take a page out of Joey’s book. Professional above all else, honesty, fairness, schedule adherence, and just plain ole American pride in a company’s great work.
