Art Deco

The Art Deco period was from the 1920's to the early 1930's. This is one of my favorite design periods, I love it's clean geometric lines and beautiful color combinations! The styles of this time where innovative and a little risque. The women wore short sheath dresses showing a bit of leg. The jewelry of this was spectacular with emerald cut stones and black enamel details. Long opera length beaded necklaces and large dangle earring showed off their short bob hair cuts. There are so many design elements from that time, architectural and art, that are still used by current designers. This was one of the greatest times fashion and design. You should check it out. It's truly inspiring!lisascala.com

Positive Visualization

I had a friend tell me her secret to her success was visualizing and writing down what her perfect business is, then thinking and living it. She kept checking to see if I thought she was crazy, but I think she has something here. Putting good out there seems to bring good back, so maybe if used in all aspects of life you will prosper. Positive visualization, I'm trying it.
Good Luck! lisascala.com

Happy Love Day!

I have always thought of Valentines Day as a little cheesy, but its simplified essence is Love. Which happens to be the most important thing to me and I think the most important thing there is! If you break it down to what are the most valued things in your life, to most people it would be those you love and the things you love to do. For me it's my family and friends, then my art. These two support one another, family and friends encourage me to do what I love while art gives me the escape when the former is driving me crazy. I give thanks to both. lisascala.com
