I finally have a few moments to show you a bit around the new studio space!
I have been blessed with so many wonderful clients these last 6 weeks, I have had to focus on them and not the blog.
I do have some fun things planned to share with you over this summer, so I will try to post those more timely
Without more ado… here is our new little creative workshop!
In this space we will host creative events, workshops, shopping events (our first one is being planned right now!), meet with clients and create unique finds for home and life! It is a small space, but we will use it very efficiently.
This shot is looking out into our entry vestibule and our changing inspiration board.
Here are our desks… this area will have some color added to it soon, (some creative painting techniques from Alicia), along with a place to hang fabric swatches.
The place were creative projects get done….
Some of Lulu & Lilly’s merchandise that is for sale. Custom pillows, vintage pieces, artwork, frames, and little treasures. There is even more coming…. wait until you see what we have planned for fall!
Maybe the perfect thing is waiting to go home with you?
Our past projects board in the vestibule of our entryway. Alicia and the Studio were featured in the Twin Cities Metro Mag during the month of April… a delightful article about my artistic partner and her business… written by the uber talented Cy Winship!
Thanks Cy for the wonderful kudos…
Please come by to visit us soon… we are by appointment only, so please call first to make sure we will be at the Studio. We’d love to show you around our little space and introduce you to all of the current Lulu & Lilly projects!
Thanks for stopping by and thank you even more to our fabulous clients, friends, and associates who has helped make this new creative playhouse a reality. We couldn’t have done it without you. We are blessed!
I hope February is being good to you so far….
I just wanted to give you a heads up that I will post my latest venture in a blog post tomorrow…
I have been wanting to share this for a while, but everything’s finally lined up and ready to move- I am excited to be able to bring you all in on it.
Ann Voskamp’s blog, A Holy Experience which I have followed for a while, is about the simple wonders of our daily walk with God. Her book One Thousand Gifts- A Dare to Live Fully Right Where You Are, is anticipated out soon.
I have had this book on order for a while and while awaiting it’s delivery I wanted to share this trailer with you, so that you may order it as well.
Watch the video to see a taste of what is to come in the book. Once I receive the book, I will stop back to do a review as well. I hope this inspired you today.
Let me know your thoughts…
When reading some past posts on Kelly Rae Roberts blog this afternoon, I came across this TED video on Brene Brown‘s “The Power of Vulnerability”. I have read some of Brene’s work and visited her blog and website. I thought it might be good to share these words with you too.
I have always been passionate about being authentic and real in every detail of life. It is hard in today’s worldly society that shouts at us from the roof tops- “You are not worthy, you are not enough, you must be perfect.” Ourselves and most importantly, our children are bombarded with this message (especially girls) daily. I do think it’s vital that we always share the words- “you are imperfectly beautiful and you will always be enough” with those we love most.
Brene’s research and journey into “The Power of Vulnerability” is thought-provoking at the least and powerful and life changing at best. I would encourage you to grab some lunch or a cup of afternoon coffee and invest the time in listening to her words.
Some of Brene’s words:
“Let ourselves be seen, deeply seen. Love with our whole hearts and without guarantee. Practice gratitude and joy. Feel and be alive. Know that you are enough.”
I hope those words can speak some truth into your heart today.
Brene Brown’s TED talk here: The Power of Vulnerability.
Of course, I would love to hear your thoughts on “being enough” with some comments below.
