So here we are. . .

 

6 years, 3 names (Bumblebees--Fly Formal--Rinnovo Studio), 2 schools (Go Terriers; Go Tigers-rawr), several degrees, a ton of hot yoga often followed by tearful yet cleansing 45 minute drives home, an ever-teeming porch full of lifetime gal-pals with easy smiles and a plentiful supply of red wine and bourbon.  A broken heart and then an unrequited love. A delight in independence. 

 

A production team in Italy.  Partnerships with a few international retail icons.  A trek to New Zealand.  A few "Oh ___" runs down the snow blanketed mountains of The Rockies.  Many eardrum crushing wipe-outs learning to mount a surf board.  Countless "newb" rush-hour wrong turns.  Several sunrises, but many more sunsets.  An unsuccessful attempt at learning to play the guitar, paired with a successful attempt at learning to play the drums.  A comical and unexpected "win" in the stock market.  Many late nights around the fire at the Farm followed by very early morning, very large gulps of Coconut Water.  A lot of "bad choices" and a bundle of awesome memories.  The contentment accompanying my cozy cocoon of a little basement nest.

 

3 scarf designs, 3 cities, many miles driven and 10,000 reasons to sing.

 

I'm feeling a little like Billy Joel right now... with the lyrics of "We didn't start the fire" ringing in my head.  All the experiences above might seem a little disjointed, but they come together to build the beautifully broken vessel (a hodgepodge of sparkle and spice) that is me.

 

Above is a glimpse of the moments that have molded my business -- The physical manifestation of an often trying journey toward renewal and a purpose driven life.

 

There is beauty in brokenness.  So much awesome beauty.  Yes, I'm a handful.  Of course, I'm a mess, but I believe that I'm a beautiful mess, broken for Him.  

 

Whether it's a bone, a steel structural beam, or a spirit.  When there is brokenness, there must also be renewal.  

 

Rinnovo is Italian for "Renewal".  A word I learned while in Italy with my parents securing the scarf production team.  I clung to the word for 2 years knowing it would have purpose and praying for timing.  

 

The time is now and here it is.  Rinnovo Studio: my vessel, my place to pollinate with positivity.  To produce a beautiful, intentionally designed product and a platform for connecting artists to business. 

 

Whatever "it" might be for you... this is a place where we aim to pay it forward, pass it on and pollinate with positivity.  

 

I hope you will join our party!!

With hugs,
