[Local Entrepreneur Spotlight] Meet Lelaina from The Gannons Studio

Hi there! I’m Lelaina,

My love for art started when I was just five years old! Growing up I watched my mother paint and once I was old enough she started giving me canvases to make my own creations on (and let me tell you there are stacks and stacks of those creations!). Throughout my childhood I knew I loved art, but I hadn’t found that one technique that REALLY captured my heart. Then I discovered resin art and let me tell you, I became OBSESSED! My main love for resin art is that it takes two minds to create a piece. My mind AND

2. It’s our (Hayley and Tanisha’s) sister’s birthday this weekend (HBD Ry!) and we are going to celebrate with some local wine tasting at DeLiese Cellars and Giessinger Winery (we’ve never been to either).  We really like wine and love trying out new wineries.

Homemade Ventura {local shop}

We love to support small, local businesses, especially ones that make and sell things as adorable as Homemade Ventura.  Homemade Ventura was started by stay-at-home mom (of two toddlers no less!) Jessica Needham. She was born and raised in Ventura and was inspired by the laid back, small town vibe. She started creating macrame wall art using modern, but simple designs.  You can check out her beautiful macrame wall art on her etsy shop here.

Jessica will also be hosting a macrame holiday workshop at MadeWest Brewery in Ventura.  Join her on December 6th from 6-8pm and for just $60 a person you …

Tunes & Tastings {Whizin Market Square}

Every Thursday from 4-8pm, the Whizin Market Square in Agoura Hills is hosting a Tunes & Tastings event featuring artisanal food pairings and performances from local musicians and artists.

We love the idea of exploring the Whizin Market Square’s different boutique shops while enjoying small bites and beverages made from fresh local ingredients!  It’s a great opportunity to try something new, as well as support local businesses and artists (which we are all about).

Five Friday Faves {This Week’s Edition}

1. ICYMI: We are looooving all of this press about something we’ve known for, like, ever.  Ventura County was just recently ranked #1 most naturally beautiful county in the entire United States.  Hey, Santa Barbara, not too shabby for you, either — you came in at #3!  Other honorable mentions from the 805 include Monterey County (coming in at #9) and San Luis Obispo County (#21).  That’s out of 3,111 counties!
