Since one of the topics I talk about at Propel is branding, I knew I wanted to model this myself. The talented Nikki of Akula Kreative helped me design several pieces that would convey the Propel brand. It’s so nice to work with someone who sees my vision! Thank you, Nikki, for being so creative and witty!

I have been dying to share the rest of Pasadena Propel! It was an incredible experience. There was so much inspiring energy and eye candy! Here’s a little sneak peek by the talented Julie of Elysium Productions. Make sure to head over to Style Me Pretty to see the gorgeous photos too! As a teacher, my ultimate goal is to see my students succeed. I’m so proud to see my propeller’s photos featured too!
I am so excited to share with you the first of 3 shoots from our Pasadena workshop. This was featured on 100 Layer Cake! We started off bright and early with a hot breakfast in the classroom and went up til bedtime! We had an inspiring morning where we covered topics including marketing strategies, sustainable business planning, work flow, establishing your style, getting published… After working up our appetite, I surprised all the propellers with a beautifully designed tea party! Everyone got time to shoot the setup, and I’m excited to announce that Jen from Green Wedding Shoes (who was one of our guest speakers) just featured two of our attendees on her blog! As a teacher, my ultimate goal is to see my students succeed, so I’m very proud to see my propellers published!
Here’s a little glimpse at one of our lovely models, Sonia, who also happens to be an amazing event planner. Special thanks to Skybox Event Productions for planning the logistics of the day for me. Everything flowed so smoothly!
