When you spend your free time with your family AND work with them you’re often going to find a few hilarious moments now and again. My family has a lot of “big personalities” who enjoy what they do.How did I get started in the wedding and events business? My son’s wedding! That’s right I made all of the flowers myself along with centerpieces and decorations to save money and after realizing that I could “pull it off,” started Texas Twins Events. My first family “employee” was my saucy sudekick and twin sister, Cindy Daniel. My sister can laugh at just about anything, calls herself a hillbilly and created “Cindyisms” her redneck view of our lives that are featured on Pawning Planners Apparel.
Proceeds from the sales of Pawning Planners Apparel fund “sponsored events” for families who cannot afford low cost services through Wedding & Event Services- Texas Twins Events and, for families with no money- we take trades through my sister site We take trades! Submit Yours At The Pawning Planners my latest website is where I sell refurbished items taken in trade through the Pawning Planners at Texas Twins Treasures-Shop My Treasure Chest sales are how we recover expenses when we use the “Pawning Process.”Do we have a good time “making dreams come true one family at a time from Fort Worth, Texas?” You bet we do and we become friends with the strangers who come to us for help at weddings, baby showers, pawning parties, estate Liquidations, funerals and more because “no request is too big or too small- we do them all!” Everything is more fun when my sister is around to entertain the guests and enjoy the party. Next to come aboard were my son and his wife when I needed low cost photography and videography options for our clients. My nieces, Leigh Ann Blais and Stephaney Mahaney are bilingual and hearing impaired translators as well as wedding singers at events. Creating an inventory of everything from bridal bouquets to ring pillows, flower baskets, cake stands, columns and more took me two years and thousands of dollars but, I’m passionate about every aspect of my unique and diverse businesses and realized that the families we were helping could never afford such luxuries. Along the way these past 4 plus years, I’ve recognized the issues our clients faced and worked hard to “fill the gap.”
I’ve had a few families offer livestock, guns and old cars or trucks for a trade but we cannot accept these items for several reasons, we don’t have a gun seller license, we don’t have pasture to house the livestock and we don’t have a mechanic to repair vehicles in order to “flip them.” My fifth year in an ever expanding “brand” promises to be as fun and exciting with my family as we look forward to more adventure and making dreams come true for folks who had nowhere else to go to find help other than the Pawning Planners and my Texas Twins Events Team. I saw a need for low cost and no cost ceremonies and services when my son married years ago and my insight created a window to enjoy my family while meeting new friends and that’s how this ”
business got started.”
