Safe Kids Day Charity Event

We always love being apart of charity events especially when kids are involved! Recently, we had the opportunity to participate in the Safe Kids Day Charity at Smashbox Studios. Safe Kids Worldwide is a nonprofit organization working to protect kids on the move, at home and at play. Preventable injuries are the #1 killer of kids in the United States. Throughout the world, almost one million children die of an injury each year, and almost every one of these tragedies is preventable. Safe Kids works with an extensive network of more than 400 coalitions in the United States and with partners in more than 30 countries to reduce traffic injuries, drownings, falls, burns, poisonings and more. We helped our friends at Simply Troy with the design elements of fabrication, backdrops, floral and environmental designs. Take a look at all the fun while raising awareness for a great cause!

For the purpose of this DIY, we kept them rather small (no larger than 6″x6″). It is important to remember, however, that if the gourds are too small an LED candle may not fit in them and they won’t offer the magical illumination that the larger ones can!  For the painting, we chose a mix of metallics. Our team has found that Design Master in Rose Gold and 24 KT Pure Gold delivers the brightest and truest gold color around, so that’s what we …

Be Creative: Artists Never Stop Learning

A few weeks ago Nicole & Shawna took a trip to Mayesh OC to participate in the “Francoise Weeks Botanical Couture Workshop.” There was so much fun to be had as they spent the day designing botanical masterpieces with purses, shoes, headpieces and jewelry. Floral accessories are becoming more and more popular in the industry, so Shawna & Nicole quickly jumped on the opportunity to advance their experience working with these design elements.
