The Pretty Frank Studio-Warming
Yesterday was quite the milestone for Pretty Frank.
Friends, family and VIPs who have become like family were invited to the new studio space to leave their good vibes and blessing.
Moving into the Pretty Frank studio (from a corner in the study) was long overdue, and I'm so humbled to share such a special occasion with my nearest and dearest.
The front door of Pretty Frank is adorned with this gorgeous wooden sign via some of my fave people at CoCreative Design on Etsy. The image of the Pretty Frank logo on white was made by this talented team, too!
Building a small business and work in and on it can be tough and it can be lonely. I'm so happy to have a tribe of women and men around me who keep me motivated and moving forward.
Here's me on the left (Leonie from Pretty Frank).
Then to my left, my talented friend Angie who I met at the Local Business Awards for the sole trader category in 2019. She took out the title for our category, we became friends and now she does the bulk of my graphic design work. She runs her own biz called Black Rhino Creative and I recommend her wholeheartedly.
On the right is my bestie, Laura. She holds down a full time role in financial planning AND runs a small business called Morgan & Elwood for hair and makeup.
Here's one of my favourite spots! A little inspiration wall full of gorgeous prints from some of my most loved people/artists.

Here's a sneak peek at some of the fragrances I use to make your lovely candles, as well as a bright bunch of peonies from my fave floral home-delivery people, Bloombox Co.
Here's a snapshot of the pouring table. This is where I pour your lovely candles, leave them to cure for a week, then label up and pop onto my stock shelves.
The stock shelves at Pretty Frank Studio. Cured and ready to be sent out as your orders come in!
Work done for the day? Let's grab a gin together!
