IMG_4845Kim is a party stylist and founder of The TomKat Studio, a blog and shop filled with creative inspiration. After leaving her real estate career in 2008, she started her blog on a whim, to share her creative projects including home decorating, crafts and parties. She came up with the name “TomKat” by combining her children’s names, Tommy + Kate. A few months later, Kim shared Kate’s 2nd birthday party and it became apparent that there was a big demand for her creativity. She opened an Etsy shop selling party packages including invitations, cupcake toppers, banners + more. The demand continued to grow and few months later, unable to keep up, she went digital with her designs. It helped her balance her time and her customers love the concept. Her experience has expanded into ongoing photo and party styling opportunities for major brands like HGTV and Pottery Barn Kids. Last year, Kim opened a one-stop online party supply shop to offer her printable designs, along with a selection of fabulous party supplies, accessories and gifts. Kim’s styling work has been featured by Martha Stewart, HGTV, DIY Network, Pottery Barn Kids, Vera Bradley and many more. Her work has also been featured in publications such as Parenting Magazine, Celebrate Magazine, Where Women Create and InStyle Magazine. Kim has had formal media training and has participated in satellite media tours on behalf of brands she works with. Kim has built a loyal following through social media. She would love to connect with you via The TomKat Studio blog, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram or you can email her at [email protected] View Kim’s Portfolio

Kim loves pink, ruffles and all things pretty. She is a perfectionist, night owl and a teeny bopper at heart. She loves all sweets {especially chocolate}, the Twilight series and is still a big fan of New Kids on the Block. Kim lives in Chandler, Arizona with her wonderful husband, Danny, their two sweet children Tommy {8} & Kate {7} and their chihuahua, Bentlie.

J-lala_Wordmark_1crl_copy_3J la la got its start in 2008.  It’s a story of “Shop Gal” – Jenna – with a love for fashion was working as a part time buyer and sales associate.  She watched as accessory upon accessory – mainly hats – came across her hands and on to the shop’s shelves and racks.  Jenna noticed a major theme with these accessories… they were all the same, they were like everything she had seen before, they were unoriginal.

With a dream and a little push from her colleagues and friends she decided she could create an accessory that was different from the rest.  The “One of a Kind” Military and Trucker J la la Hat was born.

In the beginning there was a focus on rock ‘n roll vintage style (Jenna was the front woman for a band at the time so it only made sense.)  It quickly evolved into a business where she could provide unique and one of a kind “Gameday Gear” for the ladies.  The first Team Hats were created from the hype of the Arizona Cardinal’s Super Bowl run in 2009 and the J la la “Gameday Gear” took off.

J la l a is equal parts edgy and “rock ‘n roll” with just the right amount of “girly” mixed in.  Because each design and item is 100% unique, anything you can imagine and anything you love can be turned into a genuine J la la Design.

Since the humble beginnings with a dream and a needle, J la la has evolved into a Clothing & Accessory company for women and children.  All items in our shop are handmade by Jenna and have her heart, soul and passion for fashion sewn in.
