How thrilling is this??  Tye Dye Diva Jen Hagedorn has come up with the sweetest Butterfly dress.  So then Teresa Abel Martin takes it a step further with her darling daughter in fabrics from Joann Fabric and Craft Stores and puts the Cheery in Christmas!!!  What a beautiful moment and it looks like it’s taken out of the cinema looks so dreamy and you can tell she has some things she’d like to say.  Oh and if Santa does exist, that has got to be him!!!

Jenny Eliza always had that Holiday sensibility and its marvelous that it actually caught on . To purchase these fabrics press here..Still plenty in stock!!  Please look closely her butterfly sleeve which is the scale of the exact dot not what appears on The Joann Site.   Enjoy, create stockings and all sorts of items that you will cherish forever!!  The bottom set of fabrics will be here in January at you Joann Store.

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!

You are loving “Jenny Eliza”

We are so smitten with this line and can’t thank you enough for creating all the beauty we are seeing on social media and we can’t say enough thank yous for all you do.  You enrich our lives with the items you create and inspire all of us with your unique eye!! So many talents so many gifts and we are struck dumb everyday with the multitude of  ideas.  We love Jenny Eliza and see that you love it also. Currently this line is selling at JoAnns and we couldn’t be more pleased with the Launch.  Their website has to keep replenishing the goods and that’s never a bad thing!!!  Please feel free to buy online.  So we had our wonderful photographer friend Tim Geaney (photographer to the stars) take some whimsy so you can see the breathtaking quality of these fabrics for themselves. red meghan hint jimbo sissy katie shore IMG_8088
