Dawn Marie was amazing! She did balloon animals and face painting for my little guy's first birthday. She appealed to a pretty wide range of kids. The youngest to get a balloon animal was 8 months and the oldest was 6. The adults loved it too! I was worried that the facepainting would be a mess but the paint she uses doesn't rub off if the children touch their faces. I hugged several kids with their faces painted and nothing rubbed off on my shirt. This was my first time hiring any kind of entertainment for a party and it was a great experience. She was really great with the kids and it added a special touch to our party. I will definitely use her again in the future and I would highly recommend anyone else to do the same.

We couldn't have asked for a more talented artist! She arrived early and was ready to go at the scheduled time and even stayed a bit later to finish up. She was kind, compassionate, and aimed to make sure that everyone was having a good time and satisfied with their artwork. She was wonderful with all of the kids that we're running around. What a great first birthday!!

Monique and her mom, Betty, were incredible to work with! I had a lot of bumps in the road--changes in numbers, addresses, etc-- and Monique was more than understanding throughout the whole process. From our first conversation to our final goodbyes, she was nothing but kind, professional and fun to hang out with and talk to! She was also more than willing to listen to what I had in mind for myself and bridesmaids (and my mom too!) and also make her own professional suggestions to really make sure we all looked our best on my special day. The makeup didn't move all night, despite lots and lots of happy tears! She even gave us all little lip kits for touchups throughout the day! I really do owe the world to Monique and Betty for being such a pivotal part of my wedding day. If you're looking for a flexible, talented, warm and fun makeup artist, look no further! Monique is your girl!

Silly Aunt Nora Magician was amazing. I was a little worried that it might not be age appropriate for my 8 year old daughter's birthday party but she was absolutely fantastic! The kids loved the music face painting and magic tricks. She made my birthday girl feel really special and I'm pretty sure the adults loved her more than the kids. I'm so happy I hired her and highly recommend her for anyone looking for great children's entertainment.

Traci did my make up and hair for my wedding. My make up was soft and classy for the occasion and I didn't feel over done but perfect. My hair do was what I wanted and she made me feel beautiful for my special day. Besides that Traci was very professional and friendly. She made me feel relax and not be nervous because I was going to look great for my wedding and I did. My husband was so happy to see me and look so cute and not overdone...thank you Traci!

From start to finish working with the Pocket Circus team was a wonderful experience. Gabriela was prompt, professional, and friendly with the planning and arrangements. Mr. Firu was flawless as the entertainer at my 4 year old son's birthday party. My son had an earache the day of the party and was a bit cranky at times. Mr. Firu was able to handle the situation with style and grace. By the end of the show my son was laughing and participating! All of the guests ranging in ages from 1 to 77 enjoyed themselves and had an excellent time. I highly recommend Pocket Circus for one's entertainment source!

Jacek was a godsend in the midst of my first home buying experience and major renovation project. I originally engaged Jacek to perform some wood restoration work on some wooden beams that run across ceiling of my living room. These pine beams were original from when the home was built in 1889 so I wanted a wood restoration specialist with experience in restoring older homes. Jacek fit this mold. The scope was quickly expanded upon seeing the quality of Jacek's work and the passion he had for painting, home renovation and also design work. I ended up having Jacek paint and repair the drywall in nearly every room in the new home I purchased. While time consuming, his attention to detail and insistence that each crack, imperfection or break in the drywall be repaired prior to painting paid HUGE dividends as the walls are now closer to the quality of a new construction home vs. a +125 year old house. Jacek was also able to help me source a reputable carpenter and drywaller (both of which did an outstanding job) for a fraction of the cost of what general contractors / carpenters from Angie's List were trying to charge. Jacek's price was also extremely reasonable in a world where many contractors are only focused on the bottom line and quality of work is an afterthought. While we did go over budget from the original estimate, the overages I paid to Jacek were WELL WORTH IT as he made sure the work was done properly before checking out and stayed a couple extra days to finish the last 5-10% of the work. Outstanding job Jacek. I'm also planning to post some before and after pics of Jacek's work in my West Town Home on the Unique Painting and Decorating Studio Facebook website (he needs more pictures of his work).

Sandy was great! She did the hair and makeup for my wedding and bridal party. The makeup was perfection. My new husband loved the natural look done just right to complement my features. Everyone looked beautiful. I showed Sandy a picture of the long hair up-do I preferred and again it exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend her. I will definitely call her for any special event.

Lilly is amazing!!! She and her assistant Tina did hair and make up for me (bride), 5 bridesmaids and my mom for my wedding this August. I cannot express how happy I am with her work and how thankful I am to have met her. During the trial, she spent HOURS with me, doing several hair styles and make up looks until I was 100% satisfied. Initially I didn't know what I wanted and Lilly was very patient and understanding the whole time! On the day of the wedding, Lilly and Tina were able to get hair and make up done for 7 people without any problem! All of my bridesmaids and my mom looked absolutely beautiful and everybody was extremely satisfied with how they looked. Lilly is VERY talented and very creative and I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you again for all of your hard work and for making my bridal party and I look beautiful on my special day :) <3

I was very happy about my experience with Gonzalez Landscaping. They are hard working people with excellent work ethics. They showed up on my property early in the morning, just as they promised they would. They started their job with good planning. Things went nice and smooth. They cut down four trees, chopped up the wood in firewood size, laid them neatly by the fence, hauled branches away, and even cleaned up the yard for me. Everything was finished in 2 or 3 hours. No damage, no mess. Four people coordinated very well, because they know what they are doing. I highly recommend Gonzalez and will use them again.

The job I had Jan do was a floor joist re-attachment on a house built in 1953. The work area was a very cramped mud crawl. The joist has been re-attached and supported with lumber and a jack resting a very substantial block of concrete that had to be mixed and poured onsite. It's a very strong and durable repair. Jan and his partner worked efficiently and safely. I feel that Jan is qualified, honest and reasonable. I would therefore recommend his services to anyone.

Highly Recommend- I had April refinish my cabinets in my center island which is approximately 14ft by 5ft - job was completed on time- just beautiful- within the budget she quote. April is very professional- prompt and easy to work with and also helps you finalize decisions. I also had April do a bathroom vanity with a custom unique finish- April also coordinated with other vendors. Cant wait yo have April back for more projects!!!!!

I hired Veronika for my daughters wedding. She did an amazing job for me and two other family members. We received lots of compliments not only from the guests but the bride herself. Her work ethics and the vision I had were on point! I would definitely hire her again and recommend her services. Thank you for making a special day more special.
