Happy Monday! Meet Jeff & Liz Frandsen, who are what I have coined #creativecouplegoals. Both are multifaceted masters of their craft, from Liz's beautiful fashion brand Liz Riden and Jeff's gamut of creative ventures, including hand lettering, photography, design and more. These two support each other in life and in their creative businesses, and I just know you'll fall in love with them (and maybe their daughter Emme too). Not to mention, they also happen to be located right here in my town of Lancaster! Yep, that's right. Today, we're sharing the first episode of our local hang out sessions that we'll be scattering within this season... so come hang out with us and get your daily dose of inspiration from these two cool creatives I'm proud to call friends!
