This holiday season I’m trying to embrace real moments – in everything I do. That means letting the mess be part of the memory. It means taking the pressure off to be perfect. I know this idea has resonated with many of you. The more we give each other grace and let each other be imperfect, the more love and freedom {and fun!} we experience.

We had the absolute privilege of photographing Maureen Vazquez and her (real!) family for our holiday line. How adorable are they?! They just moved to our town {San Luis Obispo} and they are settling in as a family. They own their own {totally inspiring and amazing} business and they are busy with kiddos. This family shines with real love.


Maureen launched Pipsticks, a subscription sticker club, a year ago. She aims to inspire kids, crafters and sticker lovers – and, to help parents, grandparents and gift givers. Pipsticks sends a curated selection of stickers to its subscribers every month. Isn’t this awesome?!

As a mom, she really appreciates hands-on  projects for her kids. Pipsticks sticker packs arrive with loads of stickers as well as paper and postcard so that kids can use the pack completely unassisted. The whole pack, from packaging to sticker selection, is totally child-friendly – giving parents a chance to take a break (or just cook dinner in peace and quiet) once in a while.

Pipsticks is a GREAT present: new and different each month, inspires creativity, doesn’t add to an overcrowded toy chest, and is geared toward whatever your budget may be. Maureen has generously offered a 15% off code to our community! Through the holidays, use code ‘LISA15’ to save.
