Land of Nod Trunk Shows


hi friends.  it’s me.  duh, of course it is.  it’s monday morning and i have 11 guest arriving in a few short hours.  but, that’s not what i’m writing about (its whats on my mind – so it came out).  for the past couple of months i have been a very busy bee coordinating 9 holiday trunk shows across the country for The Land of Nod.

before i go any further i want to make mention that Nod is offering la la lovely readers 15%  november 25-27th (code : LOVELY).  This is good news because there are so many cute things to buy (for your kids, for yourself, for your tree!)

ok, you all know how much i love nod (remember when they came to my house).   i mean, let me count the ways…. they have gorgeous, quality products (for the whole family), their creative direction is superb (hello catalog that is more like a magazine, which i can’t ever seem to throw away) and oh, the people – i heart them all.

the concept the holiday parties was a trunk show, showcasing Nod’s super rad holiday decor + toys, hosted by bloggers in 9 different cities.  each blogger host was able to use Nod product to design their space uniquely…..

i headed out to LA to help with the trunk show there, which was hosted by kelly lanza of studio diy (do you know kelly?  if you don’t, you should) at the honest company (love them too).


nod toys


kelly has some serious mad diy skillz (sorry there is no other way to put it).  i found myself either gushing or feeling pangs of jealousy because, truthfully, i am not even this crafty in my mind (and, i try to be very crafty – in my mind).  i mean look at this dollhouse . . . each host was given a cottage dollhouse to design and display.  do you see the little mac computer?  kelly transformed her house into a loft space.  it’s LA. of course.

    Those are the tiniest tacos of all time! I would have eaten the whole plate lol. It looks like it was a great party. I love Nod products so much -i’m dying for them to bring a store to Indianapolis. =)
