Last weekend, we were fortunate enough to be a vendor at Unique LA 5th Annual Holiday Show. There were tons of great vendors selling great products. It was 2 days worth of madness and fun, Charlie and I were actually sad when it was all over (despite how exhausted we were). I didn’t know what to expect, especially it was our first time showing our products there. But we did better than I ever thought we would AND got great feedback as well. I’m so excited for what’s to come next year!
Thanks to Making Things Happen, I have some great friends I never would have met otherwise. One of those beautiful friends is Helena. She’s a rock star wedding planner based in San Diego and owns her business, Divine Events by Helena. When I first met her in 2010, I was completely inspired by her talent, her passion for her business, and her unbreakable love for her family.
Back in September, I was lucky enough to create a phone case for her with a beautiful family portrait taken by Melissa McClure.
I didn’t have any brothers or sisters. So my mom and I would spend our Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights playing board games and video games. I have to tell you, my mom is a BOSS and will own you on Super Mario 3 for Nintendo. Not. Joking. She was good. My favorite gaming system was, and still is, that classic Nintendo. So, we created a case inspired by the iconic design.
Yes, that system is a classic Nintendo gaming system. My ORIGINAL one, the one me and my mom used to play on. 1 of 2, actually. 🙂
