Early in 2015, Chasing Fireflies reached out to me and asked if my company would be interested in designing and manufacturing the party products for Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers Party Line. I (of course) was beyond delighted. A whole collection inspired by the fun of Harajuku was simply a dream come true. Each party product was carefully designed and then meticuloulsy edited by both Gwen Stefani’s and the Chasing Fireflies teams. In all, we created the following products for the Harajuku Lovers Party Line: invitations, popcorn boxes, photo prop kits, straw and pennant kits, favor boxes, cupcake kits, and rosette pennant banners. You can find all the products exclusively at Chasing Fireflies. My favorite product I designed is the cupcake invitation! See all the fun products we created for the line below in our photo shoot!
In addition, Gwen Stefani also teamed up with Chasing Fireflies to create not only a party line, but an incredible clothing and costume line. Chasing Fireflies sent me several of the adorable outfits for our models to play around in for our Harajuku Party shoot! One thing I loved about the clothing line is how soft and wearable the clothing is. Definitely check it out, if you’re like me and have daughters who love soft wearable clothes!
Special thank you to Chasing Fireflies and Harajuku Lovers for knowing the quality my company brings to every endeavor and trusting us to create the party products for this line. Thank you to Lindsay Salazar Photography for taking these beautiful photos, Betheny Tomseth of The Apothecakery for making our cake for the shoot, and all our little kawaii models for bringing the fun!
To celebrate our Georgianna’s adoption being finalized, we held a weekend celebration at our home!
Since Georgianna joined our family at 5 1/2 years old (and was now 7 1/2), Mr. Lewis and I wanted to celebrate her in a big way. We wanted it to be an event that was 100% her. In other words, roll out the nail polish, American Girl dolls, and all things fabulous!!!!
To begin the celebration, we invited all the girl cousins over for a Slumber & Spa party! My favorite Aunt Sherral made all the girls matching pink Spa robes! To say they were special would be an understatement. I mean look at them. I’ll see what I can do to get you a tutorial, but no promises. When my mother caught wind that Aunt Sherral was sewing homemade spa robes, she hit her Singer with gusto and made the girls American doll mini robes that matched Aunt Sherral’s versions perfectly! They were super special. (See photos below on post.) All I can say, is a little family recruitment can sometimes work out in the hostess’ favor. *wink*
I learned a lot from my 7th grade Home Ec windsock. I bought the girls and their dolls pajamas and slippers.
I made all the paper goods of course. But the collection was extra fun and special because it features hand drawn bunny slippers and feathers drawn by my artist mother, Georgianna’s Nana. You can find the whole collection on the website here.
Nana also made the fabulous bunny slipper cookies! I’m not positive because I was running around with my head cut off putting the party together, but I’m sure Aunt Annie and Aunt Tami helped.
My favorite cousin Katie helped pick out the fabrics for the event and cheered on Aunt Sherral as she made the spa robes. To be honest, Aunt Katie may have been the mastermind!
Aunt Shea Alison made all the mini Donuts in Georgianna’s favorite colors. See photos below!
Aunt Tami, a certified Esthetician, gave the girls pedicures. No photos. She’s private like that.
My trusty assistant Annette, who has been like a grandma to my kids through the years, made all the pink popcorn and helped set up everything beautifully!
When I realized our 2014 Holiday Photo Cards were going to photo-less, I woke the kids up, bought them some Chick-fil-a and drove them up the mountain! Camera, sleighs and our teddy bear, Rufus, in tow!All I can say is, Chick-fil-a makes a really good breakfast. The kids were all smiles!
We got the cards done and out! And considering I do this for a living, it’s a good thing!
I was absolutely thrilled to have my living room featured in this year 2014 Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Ideas magazine! We have since moved from this home in Eagle, Idaho! But I have so many fond special memories in this home and it’s extra special to have them captured by BHG!
‘m contemplating catching a flight just for the facial treatments! I definitely have visions of skin care dancing in my head!
I’ve been working on a furniture line – and my first collection shipped from the warehouse this week! I was inspired by the lack of choices I could find for a feminine office space! Women’s desk options often seem to be limited to a large masculine brown square or a craft table. So to remedy the issue, my first (and hopefully not my last!) furniture collection is a woman’s personal office complete with 8 pieces including a beautiful desk and a coat hanger (because you need somewhere to put all your purses!) Here is one of the pieces – a velvet sofa in blue and gold. With a little luck, we will have all the items on the website early 2015. Hope to share more with you soon.
