Welcome to my second monthly section for my blog. I am trying to come up with neat themes that I think everyone will like, and who doesn’t like products?!?! There are some really fun products that I could not live without in my home and I want to gradually share all of them with you. So, here is my first “must-have” decorating accessory for my home: Lisa Frost banners.
I would consider these banners the cherry on my decorating cake. LOL!!! I have several of them that I rotate throughout the year on my front door. They are bright, cheery, inviting, and so darn cute. Each banner has a layer of matching felt across the back of the canvas that gives it support and strength. And, each one comes with a silk ribbon that is used to hang the banner on your door, wall, or window. The ribbon is such a cute addition to this creation.
This creative lady even designs and sells plates, glasses, aprons, jewelry, ornaments, amongst other adorable things. If I had the money, I would own every piece of her collection. Here is a little information about her in her own words…
Meet lisA fRosT… our lead “Frosty Gal”. Lisa has art in her name and in her heart and she shows us ways to “frost” our homes and busy lives with creativity and meaning. She is passionate about spreading cheer throughout the land by utilizing her LOVE for life, art, family, teaching, and community! She has a distinctive and infectious style of painting pieces that are inspired by and created for the domestic gal, the hostess gal, and the family gal. She proclaims the “frost” is the extra special touch we add to things to “wow” our friends and family. She has created an upbeat and colorful lifestyle.
Lisa Frost has been painting and creating her whole life. She earned a degree in Art Education. Her early career was spent as a public school art teacher. During that time she was awarded the “Teacher of the Year” award from 21st Century Magazine. In 2000, she took a leap of faith and left her position as an art teacher to build her business. She dreamed and created pieces for holiday, home and kids and the lisA fRosT studio was born. Over the years Lisa has developed many beautiful collections. She has employed college art interns with the hopes that one day they will become artists too. She has created a unique lifestyle and recruited a loyal following of “Frosty Gals” who help her on her mission to spread cheer throughout the land. In 2009, the local Chamber of Commerce voted her as one of the top “Forty Leaders Under Forty”.
In 2009, Lisa Frost went global with her artistic pieces and partnered with Silvestri by Demdaco. The lisA fRosT Collection is now found in retail gift stores throughout the world!
Lisa Frost is currently a regular guest on the local CBS and NBC television stations where she demonstrates creative ways to decorate, entertain and craft projects for the seasons. Additionally, she inspires us to give back to our communities. Each year she produces the “Frost & Friends” holiday event in her community. It features and supports artists.’ Over the years “Frost & Friends” as funded 42 art-related scholarships to high school art students. In 2010, Lisa Frost became a belle of her own community and was nominated as “Woman of the Year” by RW Magazine.
lisA fRosT lives, paints, and creates in her “frosted” studio in Rockford, Illinois.
If you haven’t heard of these banners or if you don’t own one, you definitely need to think about it. You can order them online through her Website, or purchase them from your local specialty store. They are worth every penny!!!
