Wreath Wars!!!!

I just love the way that sounded!!!!!  Hey I was googling wreathes and look what I found the coolest tutorial by the coolest girl!!  Ok so of course I can't follow directions so I just used acrylics and watercolor paper because that's what I had in the house!  You probably saw my paper paintings on Instagram because FB and Pinterest has brought me to a wonderful place within and that is not to be scared of anything. Paints were definitely out of my comfort zone but painting a sheet of paper was like whoa!! I can do that. Baby steps friends when you are a beginner and let the uglies of being a beginner be ok.   So I looked up this blog because this amazing wreath was staring me in the face and I had to know what it was all about. I want to paint paper the restoof my life..going for paperbags next. Hey girlfriend Jessica..how about a challenge sprinkle your confetti on painted strips and create a wreath!!  I hope she's listening..she's got cool ideas!!   So anyway here it is ..Giddy Giddy and then me!! She did it with cardboard and I did it with Styrofoam.  Hey whatever you do it's all about the fun!!   giddy-giddy circlewars

Monarch Workshop

This past weekend I had the luxury of attending Monarch Workshop.  The workshop is run by an incredible group of women (including our very own Madeline) and aims to support "those who need a little push, those who are looking for a creative connection, and those who need inspiration to believe they can follow their dreams." The attendees were made up of a spectacular group of women whose occupations ranged from bloggers to therapists and real estate agents to artists.  The two day workshop consisted of non-stop activities (lessons, speakers, crafting) that catered to the mind, body and soul. It was FABULOUS. Our fearless leader, Jennifer Paganelli, was a guest speaker and led the group in creating vision books.  The books were created by gluing inspiring cut outs (words, quotes, images) from magazines onto blank notebook pages. jennifer vision-book There was yoga and lessons in make-up and skincare. We made our own dream catchers, ate delicious food (from the ladies at Whisk + Brush) and had a tutorial in all things confetti! Take a look below of more images from the incredibly talented Victoria Gloria: monarch-(2) yoga ladies To see even more images click here For information on Monarch Workshop and to receive notifications about the upcoming Spring 2015 Workshop click here flight -- Lisa          

Job Perks

Can you keep a secret? Since I totally trust my Paganelli Peeps, I'm going to let it all out...just don't tell my boss... You guys, I have the BEST job in the world! I get to be surrounded by incredible people and breathtaking fabrics all day. We chat, we work, we craft, there are puppies here...what more could you ask for? I feel so incredibly lucky and grateful to have landed a job with Sis Boom that if someone dared me to eat dirt, I'd totally do it! So, what has me jumping for joy today? The answer is: the job perks, of course! Yesterday the most incredible dress arrived at the office and I got to try it on!! patchwork This patchwork Good Company (in stores November 2014) dress was inspired by a J.Crew silhouette and the seamstress absolutely nailed it! Not only was it super comfortable, but it ended up being super convenient during a business meeting as well. When speaking about Jennifer's upcoming line, Good Company (did I mention it will be available in stores November 2014), I simply stood up to reveal what was to come! What else did I do for the hour I spent in the dress? Craft and snap some selfies, of course! crafting selfie Hope everyone enjoys the sneak peek at the collection! -- Lisa
