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.



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:

Hit Send

I did it, I announced Lucky Girl on Facebook. It’s always thrilling to launch a new line but it can be terrifying simultaneously!! You just always want everyone to be happy and that you continue to raise the bar for yourself.  Achievement can never really be measured so it has to come from within.  I like this line so much and know that you will have so much fun putting the designs  together. You know how much I love seeing your work and if I can help you launch a little biz so you can stay home with the kids I am happy to do so!!!! So I hope you are enjoying the summer it can be difficult juggling kids and your biz but take heart in knowing it will come when you are ready and not before.  Savor the notion that you are right where you are supposed to be!!

Hey everyone! I’ve got a super quick & simple project for today’s Sis Boom Clip Art Series: A Faux Lighted Mirror!

For this project we’ll be using Sis Boom’s Glitter Garland Circles

All you’ll need is this clip art file, some scissors, and adhesive dots.

Start by printing out the clip art onto glossy photo paper and cutting out each circle.

Grab some adhesive dots, adhere to the back of the circles, and start sticking! It’s as easy as that!!

If you want your mirror to have a more “authentic” look of lights, you can choose to just use the gold glitter circles. Line the top of your mirror with the large circles to simulate vanity lights. (You can even line the bottom with the small or large dots if you want!)

Or you can use just pink, or alternate between the two colors. They could also just be used as a decorative border around a mirror – the possibilities are endless!

It’s shipping

More beautiful then I remember.  My delivery came today and it is beyond what I recall!!  Really is so beautiful and so worth the wait. I’ve been right along side my friends who have waited patiently.   Before you know it you will have it and have difficulty cutting it.   That’s what I always here from you guys!!  So here is a pic, dream of the days ahead. The good news is most of it will ship in the next three weeks so before late May like intended.  Think about headboards and canopy’s in Happy Home and Girls Dresses and accessories in Girls World.  Please show us your visions too!!  Remember both books are in our shop for $42.00  Come by and say hi!!
