Classic – Lisa Leonard (GIVEAWAY)

Happy Wednesday!

I’m wrapping up my little one on ones showcasing the talent behind my collection of ‘leading ladies’ (aka my necklaces). If you’re shaking your head and wondering what in the world I’m talking about, refer back to this post where I talk about necklaces as if they were people.

Okay, now that we have that straight … fill up your glass of iced tea and grab a fresh baked cookie while I go get our third and final guest of honor for this week.


Let me introduce you to the wonderfully talented and equally genuine and sweet … Lisa Leonard of Lisa Leonard Designs. What? You’ve heard of her? Of course you have … I mean she is the Lisa Leonard who has created quite the name for herself all over the blogging world. From crafters and new moms to brides and celebrities, she covers all of it.

So I am feeling pretty lucky to get to share a little about Lisa on my blog …

A little about you?

right now i am obsessed with glee, worried about my son’s upcoming heart surgery, planning how to decorate our guest bedroom, hungry for a campfire with smores and itching to create a new necklace.

When did you start Lisa Leonard Designs? What is the most satisfying part of owning your own company?

i started lisa leonard designs so i could quit my day job (teaching) and stay home with my boys. it is one of the scariest (and most rewarding!) things i’ve ever done. the hardest part is finding balance with my schedule. the best part is getting to be with my boys whenever i want.

Favorite Color Combinations?

clothing-great denim skinny jeans and a perfect black top with great jewelry.

home decor-aqua, white, brown with lots of sunlight.

Favorite item currently in your shop?

either the family tree necklace or the open circle necklace.

Favorite Starbucks drink OR favorite dessert?

at starbucks i usually go for a plain coffee (and fix it up with waaaay too much cream) or if i’m feeling fancy, a vanilla soy latte.

Lisa has graciously offered a $50 Gift Certificate to Lisa Leonard Designs to one of YOU!!
