Who's That: Lisa Leonard Designs (and giveaway!)-CLOSED

Oh my goodness gracious!  I'm so proud of myself for keeping this a secret.  I have the incredible honor and privilege of introducing you to the lovely and talented Lisa Leonard of Lisa Leonard Designs today!


I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Lisa and her amazing creations. For those of you who haven't, I'd like for you to meet her.  Here's what Lisa has to say about herself and her creations:

"I have been making jewelry since high school but I decided to get serious after my first son, David, was born.  I wanted to start a small business that would enable me to quit my job and stay home with my boys. At the time, I had never taken any formal classes or received special training in jewelry making. I just went for it!   I am kind of the 'jump in and learn as you go' type.  Creating jewelry not only allowed me to work from home, but has connected me with so many amazing women along the way.  

My desire is to create simple, lovely pieces that can be worn with jeans or your little black dress.  I want each piece to meaningful.  Our custom jewelry is hand-stamped with your kids’ names or a special phrase or verse.  I love to touch my necklace throughout the day and reflect on my husband and my sweet boys.  

Each piece we create is a work of art—hand cut, hammered, polished, drilled and assembled with care. I am inspired by other artists--painters, scrapbookers, clothing designers and poets.  I also love to soak up nature-the sky, the sea, the green hills.  I let all these ideas and images swirl around in my mind and then I create.  When an idea hits me I sketch it out and play until the perfect design comes together.
 
Lisa Leonard Designs exists because moms, grandmas and friends have shared our designs with each other while waiting in line at the grocery store or sipping coffee with a friend.  Most of our customers find us through word of mouth.  We know that you’ll find the perfect piece."

I know I fell in love with her work the moment I came across her site.  Her jewelry is, simply put, amazing.







She has a beautiful blog, too.  It's full of her daily stories and gorgeous pictures.  They inspire me to use my photography talents more and to improve on them.  I highly recommend checking it out.  

And now, for the surprise (though I'm sure you've all figured it out since you're just so cleaver):

Lisa is graciously giving away one $25 gift certificate to use towards anything on her site to one lucky Scraps and Scribbles winner!
