Project Run and Play is finally here! Six designers….only five will move onto the next challenge! Here is my interpretation of Winter Wonderland….click the photo to go and vote on your favorite!
Lisa and I planned a quick little photo shoot in the backyard on Tuesday and invited a few friends over. Lisa couldn’t find her fabric banner/bunting she’d stashed away so we had to make a quick version because we wanted it to hang in the background. It turned out so cute and added just the right amount of color:
Spray adhesive (acid free)
Variety of fabric for flags
Pinking shears (or regular scissors if you don’t mind a straight edge)
3 yards of 2″ grosgrain ribbon
For each individual flag, spray a layer of adhesive to the wrong sides of 2 pieces of fabric:
Speaking of designing…are you working on your next big design?
…literally. Here’s a small distressed Lil Blue Boo sign I made using a small canvas and spray paint. So easy to do….and endless possibilities: an old sign for your kitchen, a large piece of artwork, a sign for a booth at a boutique, or even a personalized “shabby chic” name plate for a kids room.
I use just a basic collage layering process of newspaper or old phone books (a good way to recycle too!) so you have something to flake and distress on top of the canvas. This layer I painted white once it was dry:
My first collection is finally coming together! Lisa and I have been working day and night for the past few weeks searching for rare fabrics and designing silk screens to put together a full collection of handmade spring outfits that will be available to order in all sizes from 6M to 12 years of age….even a few outfits for adults. Here is a teeny tiny sneak peek 🙂
I’ll always stick to my knits…but this collection will have quite a few wovens as well….many silk screened with signature Lil Blue Boo prints and a few designed by my favorite graphic artist Stephanie Corfee.
I was all set to participate in Paint the Moon’s “Let’s Do 52” Project….but then I thought it would be SO much more fun to help Boo participate. After all, she DID ask Santa for a “camera with legs, but no feet”….and I personally think a 3-year-old could have a lot to say through photography 😉
Boo got a hand-me-down camera from her Mimi and Papa and Mommy and Daddy bought her a mini tripod:
If you would prefer to donate directly to the foundation you can follow this link HERE. Thank you for your support!
Update: $200 raised! All donation receipts are always posted once the donation is made. While charitable amounts could remain anonymous I think that any website/individual who is asking you to “buy” something to raise funds should provide a paper trail.
Just got back from a 4 day trip to Scottsdale, AZ for a family wedding. I took along my camera to capture some family moments and some inspiration.
I spent one full day walking around old town Scottsdale with my mother-in-law and my husband’s aunt. I bought this new “Indiana Jones” hat:
There are so many exciting things happening in 2011! We can’t wait to share them all with our amazing Lil Blue Boo community. Thank you for your constant support, we could not do it without all of you.

Busy packing for a family wedding so I thought I’d share this little dance video directed by Boo. Please, no comments on my lack of dance skills.
