lil peach e design Workshop

A few weeks ago, we brought in one of our local makers to do a workshop! Shannon, owner of lil' peach e design, taught workshop attendees how to make beautiful pacifier clips and teething necklaces. Her bubbly personality and great style made for such a fun afternoon!

She set up a beautiful bead bar for the students to pull from. How fun is it to pick your own beads that fit your personal style? Before the workshop, she posted a poll to see if they wanted more color or neutrals; neutrals was a heavy favorite. She did, however, mix in some pretty fall colors. Her setup for everything was great. The white bowls really let the beads shine, and the books were such a fun pop of color. It was a great way to show her brand's style and aesthetic. Oh, and those scones she brought were delicious!

The workshop started with the braided pacifier clips. Such a beautiful, simple baby accessory. Plus, it can be extremely useful. Shannon demonstrated for the moms, and then walked around to be hands on help. Love how they turned out!

Next up, the moms were able to raid that bead bar and pick out their favorites. Shannon walked them through pointers for their necklaces, and helped them finish the clasps. Everyone's turned out gorgeous and will be so fun for them to wear for their little ones. Practical and pretty always makes for a mom win!

It was such a fun, easy afternoon for everyone. I always love working with local makers and helping them share their talents. Shannon has a great eye and you can tell she really enjoys what she's doing. As a gift for shop baby, she was sweet enough to make her a fancy turban. The colors are perfect for fall. We carry a few items of hers in the shop (her most popular item is the ICT Flag teether, exclusive to our shop!) and you can find more following her on social media.

Let us know if you would like Shannon to host another workshop at the shop!

Lots of Love,
