Kelly Wearstler's MasterClass and a take away was “let your collections be part of your decor.”

So see your house as a living biopic, with lighting in the role of director (“Think about it as a way to guide the eye around a room,” she says), the palette playing the supporting cast of characters (“You need to keep in mind the way colors communicate with each other. There should be a natural dialogue”), and your passions and collections, of course, as the star.

Planet Loving, Memory Maker, Minimalist, Disruptive Innovator, Traditionalist, and Adventurer. It's a lot of responsibility to place on one brand, but the founder behind LoLo Body's world-class solid moisturizer isn't cracking under the pressure. Instead, she's reinventing self-care, building connections, promoting creative adventures, and working for a sustainable future.
 
LoLo Body Care has been sponsoring us for years. As twisted as 2020 has been, LoLo Body Care is determined to go beyond handcrafting eco-luscious moisturizers - they're changing the conversation in the indie skincare industry. LoLo Body has evolved beyond waste reduction. They're focused on creating a healthy future through innovation and inspiration by creating processes, products, and packaging regenerative and circular, instead of destructive and linear. They say it's handcrafted, but it really comes from the heart. 
 
Their message for 2021 (besides a healthy future for people, planet, and products). Let's all increase our creative adventures and actively create a planet where the only pandemic is one of kindness.

The Lemonade Shop is currently run out of Castle Rock, CO by Heather Rhoads.   She says currently because she is a Chicago girl at heart and misses the city so much, so she is sure there is a move to be had at some point. Heather fell in love with color at New Trier High School in Winnetka, IL where they had an amazing art department and after that she attended a private design school in Chicago where she left with honors. There could be a long drawn out story about how she got started dyeing yarn but it's really simple, she loves big bold color, loves yarn and loves knitting and crocheting. Heather is also an avid lover of cake. 

Heather’s husband Christopher works for the shop full time so they are a true family run business. Heather and Chris met at work so they are used to working together, a question they get asked all the time. They have been at this for about 7 years and haven't killed each other yet, so they are calling it a win! Their daughter Grace is in High School and can be found helping with making the new stitch markers they recently added to their shop.

It's not very riveting, but they love it!

Lisa has her own vision of the world and the colors in these hand dyed mill spun yarns are from deep in her imagination or from just outside, in her gardens, where Mother Nature gets it right.
Three decades of taking fleeces through all forms of preparation have led to the conclusion that life is too short to spin with second rate fibers and so everything that you find within this section is pure heaven to spin. From long wools to downy cashmere, you can feel confident that they are the best that can run through your fingers.

Embellishment.  Didn’t have any, used washers and bolts for a hem treatment.



Embellished jeans: opened side seam so I have room to work. Next step was couching the crochet cotton

lines onto the jeans. Couching the vines was a big part of the project, labor and time intensive.
