Ooooh baby! Something very special is happening around our offices these days… Jennifer’s right hand gal, Madeline, is pregnant! Yaaaaayy to Madeline and her hubby, Jordan!! Thanks to my fellow Sis Boom admirers (i’m talking about YOU!) and a one stop shop at Etsy, Madeline can spend her entire maternity surrounded by all things Sis Boom!

As I previously mentioned, my professional background includes putting together bedding collections. In fact, long before I joined Sis Boom, I was using Jennifer’s lines to make duvets, sheet sets, dust ruffles, upholstered headboards, toss pillows, curtains and more! While my mind automatically sees a large scale floral and thinks “duvet,” you guys turn the same exact print into the most beautiful clothing, quilts, aprons, shower curtains, etc. I have ever seen! I am CONSTANTLY blown away by your creativity. Since you have been so gracious in sharing your creations with us, I’d thought I’d share with you how my mind views a brand new Jennifer Paganelli collection. And speaking of brand new, I will be using fabrics that can be found in her upcoming “Good Company” line to be released in November 2014.
Reverse of Duvet/Dust Ruffle Options:
Another great suggestion is using a large bold pattern for an upholstered headboard like these:
and use a combination of solid colors found in the print as your duvet!
An upholstered headboard can be found in Happy Home by Jennifer Paganelli!
Keep your creations coming! We love seeing them!!
Hello fellow Sis Boom admirers! My name is Lisa and I am the newest addition to Team Sis Boom! From here on out one of my many tasks here will be to serve as your Style Maven! We’ll talk about the latest trends in fashion, fabrics, furniture and many more things that don’t necessarily start with an “F”. Before we get to that, here’s a little bit about me: I grew up in Connecticut with a fierce passion for design. While I studied creative writing my background includes running a children’s shop, bedding design, interior design, visual merchandising and being a pretty awesome Aunt to 4 little girls and 1 little man. In 2008 I caught a glimpse of my very fist Sis Boom design (in the collection “Bell Bottoms”) and instantly became a fan! To quote my brand new Twitter account (www.twitter.com/lbeesa) I’m a “lover of laughter, textiles, elephants, pineapples, triangles, the beatles and much, much more!” I am thrilled to be working side by side with Jennifer and Co. and cannot wait to meet and speak with each and every one of you!
For my first post I’ve decided to let my OCD get the best of me and bring something to your attention….Have you noticed that the dots featured in JennyEliza on the JoAnn Fabrics website look enormous?!? I promise you they are not! The image shown is a highly pixelated version! I want you guys to know exactly what you’re getting so below please take a look the ACTUAL scale of the dots featured on our lovely Sophie. I’ve included the pixelated version as well for your viewing pleasure. PHEW! I feel better getting that off my chest!
Thank you so much for welcoming me into your world Sis Boom fans!
Untill next time –
P.S. Here’s a picture of me in all my Sis Boom glory!

Introducing the Tobago the wonderful mate to the Tortola dress/top which is only available in the bundle for now until October. That bundle is a show stopper and you get quite the value!!!!! Join the Road Trip Pattern club…They are on the Third week of delivery s! Check it out here.
Folks are loving the bundle and while you were busy doing that, Our Girl Carla was in the Scientific Seamstress lab whipping up the companion aptly named Tobago because she knows you all go cray cray for the mother daughter patterns. So Monday check in with the Scientific Seamstress fan page because I’m sure it will be available on Etsy.
Jenny Fish had a real good time with the Jenny Eliza prints currently at JoAnns. I love all the sweet details on this one!! make sure you have all 14 fabrics!!! They are hitting the stores right now!!
The bus went by today and it’s always a trigger for longing..It went by so fast and yet I am so grateful to be present for all of it. There is so much that can take us out of the day to day , we see it all the time. I ‘m just so glad to have felt all the good the bad and the ugly. There is something so precious about being present and available to our kids. I love mine to bits and I do miss the wonder that they experience in front of you every day..It’s exquisite. So when I saw this beautiful quilt on the beach that Jane from Maiden Jane made it made me miss their youth even more. She created something so beautiful that will be packed with memories over the years! Have you met Jane be sure to follow her she is delightful. Crazy Love is no longer being produced but lots of places carry them. Here’s one place I found. Quilt Home has a ton!!
