Photo(s) of the Day: Behind the Scenes

A few iphotos from the past two days with the release of Boom Town:

 

No fancy studio here…..all it takes is a tall ladder and a little balance. It was 113 degrees while I was doing this:

Gicela at one of the cutting tables….she is a machine. I have to force her to take breaks and leave early. I gave her a gift certificate for a massage today…..Gicela, you BETTER use it:

Lisa going through orders from Boom Town….this is the messiest I’ve ever see her desk. Poor Lisa, I make her listen to the same songs over and over and over again….today it was “Coming Home”:

I froze Boo’s toys in ice to occupy her in the 110 degree heat:

I count my blessings every day that I’m able to do what I love and offer others the opportunity to do what they love. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Love the pictures! Especially knowing mine is not the only desk to look a little less than organized ;) Also, super love the freezing toys in ice!! OMG! Hope you all enjoyed your evening and were able to celebrate your well-deserved successful sell-out day!!

    Cluttered desks are the sign of geniuses. Didn’t you know that?! I like the ice idea also. Boom Town is super cute. I like the bubble skirts.

    My favorite snapshot was the last one – freezing the toys in ice blocks for hot-weather entertainment is BRiLLiANT! I’m totally stealing that idea.

    Your site is so fun to read through….thanks for inspiring all of us! Didn’t Lisa used to have a site called Ellebows and More? I read that blog often too but can’t seem to view it anymore. Is there another link? Keep rockin!

      Hi Jena! Yes, I did have a blog :-) I actually lost most of the images when my Photobucket account was deleted by mistake. Very sad. I stopped writing once I stared working for LBB. Hope you are well! -Lisa
