Looking forward to February and the Holiday of Love, as always free USPS shipping
Finding time for LPDstudios is not always easy in the summer months. Having the girls home from school means a new schedule of driving to summer jobs, camps and sports. But I still managed to create new products, attend events and have fun doing it all!
Here are a few of my favorite LPDstudios summer moments!
Farmers Market on Chocolate in Hershey, PA:
What a fun event! The community comes together to celebrate all things local; food, arts, music, yoga. This was my first Farmers Market experience, and it was so exciting to have a large booth just for LPDstudios. I invested in a pop up tent, custom banner and some unique shelving to create a welcoming and homey place for people to shop.
It's a great way to spend a Saturday morning, and if you didn't make it this year, I highly recommend it for next year.
Craft on Tap:
This was a workshop led by LPDstudios where students learned the basic skills of working in leather, from cutting, punching, stamping and painting, all while enjoying a complimentary craft beer from Wacker Brewing Company.
This was definitely a first for me! Teaching how to make jewelry pieces is an entirely different skill set than creating work in the studio. With a small class of students with varying skill levels, I was able to learn a lot about how to lead a class. I really enjoyed the experience, and I think my students did too. Look out for my next teaching adventure coming in October.
Here are a few action shots from the class!
Horizon of Hope Breast Cancer Fundraiser:
LPDstudios was able to participate in the Horizon of Hope Breast Cancer Fundraiser this year!
Through the event, Horizon of Hope was able to earn money for local organizations like the PA Breast Cancer Coalition, American Cancer Society Patient Services, and the MS Hershey Breast Center's Karen Dwyer-Jones Fund.
We donated the Pearled Navy Blue Handsewn Leather Night Out Tote with Star to be raffled off at the event. It's always so awesome to see LPDstudios originals find a good home, especially for a worthy cause. LPDstudios also had a vendor table at the event with several new designs. The new pieces were designed specifically for the attendees of the event, which were predominantly women who are breast cancer survivors and people who are close to someone who has survived.
Summer was jammed packed and I am ready for a fresh season with new LPDstudios adventures around every corner.
Don't forget to stop by LPDstudios to see what is new in the studio :)
