This week Flutter Mag launched their Summer issue and we’re excited to be featured! We created a do-it-yourself gift basket full of “a few of our favorite things,” complete with downloadable/printable tags so you can created your own gift basket for a friend or welcome basket for out of town wedding guests. Our basket included my local favorites such as a lemon from our lemon tree, handmade soap, almonds, local olive oil & balsamic vinegar, local wine, homemade cookies… and my favorite part of our gift basket was Kim’s homemade strawberry crumble baked in a mini mason jar! (They’ve included her recipe, too!) Here is a peek of our feature, and you can see the full issue here.
It’s been a whirlwind of a year for me. In fact, I can’t believe the year is already halfway over! There have been some great projects going on in the L&L studio, as well as at the Sigler house. Here are a few snapshots of what’s been going on around here lately.

This week I was excited to collaborate with Cara Robbins on styling and photographing some of the latest Lilly & Louise paper goods. We had quite a stack of paper goodness that had accumulated over the last few months. I’ll be sorting through the images over the next few days and posting to the website soon (hopefully!) In the meantime, here are some sneak peeks from the photo shoot.
By the way, if you enjoy peeking into the goings on at the L&L studio, like our facebook page to see lots more!
Thanks everyone for your kind words, comments, and emails about the new website! Here are some snapshots of what’s been going on around here lately.

Friends, we’ve been working away in our little studio and we’re excited to finally welcome you to our NEW WEBSITE, BLOG, and SHOP!
Yes, Lilly & Louise is all grown up! We’ve freshened up our look, put on some more ‘grown-up shoes,’ and have showcased the latest and greatest paper goodness to come out of the Lilly & Louise studio. We hope you’ll stop by and take a look around.
Last Fall we were excited to work on our very first Bar Mitzvah invitation. To break the mold of typical and formal bar mitzvah invitations, we designed a fun, folding invitation with at tear-off RSVP postcard. We capitalized on Bodhi’s desire for a black and purple invitation by using white ink for the text and a bold purple belly band. To make his bar mitzvah invitation even more personal, we created a custom graphic that featured all of his favorite things. This graphic was used on the envelopes, escort cards and table numbers throughout the event.
Yesterday I had the pleasure of working with two uber-talented ladies as we styled and photographed the latest Lilly & Louise creations. With Kirsten Ellis on camera, and Kelly Oshiro on style, we made our way through a pile of new work that I can’t wait to share! Stay tuned, my friends!
Oh my, it seems that February just flew by. Why, hello, March–I hope you’ll stay a little longer than February.
It was a great month around here…I finished and sent my first international wedding invitation order to England; I celebrated a birthday; Valentine’s Day (ahem, chocolate); I painted TOMS!; we had a few days of swimsuit weather; I got a teeny tiny photo/mention in Rue Magazine (check out the Santa Barbara feature on p. 56); some exciting developments in the painting studio; more fun L&L projects; and everywhere I walk outside it smells like jasmine! Here are a few snapshots of my February.

A couple of weeks ago I was honored to participate in the TOMS Style Your Sole event at Dressed and Ready in Montecito. With a handful of other Santa Barbara artists, some kickin’ live music, and summery February weather, I painted TOMS for an afternoon on the porch of Dressed and Ready. Customers purchased their shoes then chose an artist to paint them. Here are some snaps of the TOMS I painted (I took a few home for homework!) See more pics from the event here.
