Sydney from Australia.

Plot twist…she’s actually NOT from across the ocean.

Sydney is the newest member of the team, and we decided we’d keep her forever. Her laughter is contagious and she just makes everyday life plain fun. With a smile on her face constantly, you can find her in the studio helping customers or in the office helping Janet. Her favorite part of being on the LJ team is the fun but hard-working atmosphere. Everyone is not afraid to laugh, all the while getting tasks completed.

Sydney starts off each day with a large breakfast – easily her favorite meal of the day! If she could choose an age to live to, it would be 95…habits like a big, healthy breakfast might help with that! Sydney also has a case of wanderlust…she believes everyone should travel outside of the United States at least once in their life, and if money and time were not an issue, Sydney would be traveling constantly. We might not be far behind her with that idea!

According to her, there are two different kinds of people in this world: ones who have a million unread messages/email/notifications, and those who have no new notifications. We find this theory hilarious, and so true! Sydney is always on time – an awesome trait to have.

If Sydney could build a home with unlimited funds, her home would have plenty of room for hosting and inviting others in. All people would feel welcome in the space, and love being there. We love this about Sydney, she makes everyone feel welcome, even in the Studio! So come on in and meet her yourself. She is a gem!

Decorating with Rugs.

In our opinions, rugs add an instant sense of warmth and comfort to any room. We love them. Especially if you have hardwood or tile floors that you are working with, they will soften the look of the room effortlessly. Plus, they are not only fun, but functional as well. Whether you are wanting to

It’s really difficult to move beyond the “what if it looked like this?” or “what if this wall moved here, so
