We are so excited about this year’s show and can’t wait to see you there!!
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:
Would love to hear what you think of Dandelion and Boo’s collaboration with Daisy and Poppy and Roses of Blue. We have joined together to raise money for Clown Doctors who bring some humour and smiles to children in hospital. I love the idea of of collaborating for a cause. Making children laugh who are experiencing difficulty is probably the best cause there is. Thank you for allowing us a glimpse of your happy moments in helping the cause. Best, Jennifer
