20160724_180651I’m Liz Brent, Francesca #120 from Alpha Chapter, class of 2014. While in undergrad I majored in Art Education, and I’m currently an artist and teacher and started doing custom art back in 2012. All my paddles/plaques are hand-painted, most are custom designs done by request, and all others are my original creations. I come from an artist family,  so you’ll also see work featured in my online shop by my dad and brother including hats and art posters. My dad started BrentArt back in the 70s when he would build and paint commissioned projects.  You can contact me by email at,  Instagram @brentart1, website and online shop Thank you and I look forward to creating for you! 🙂



imageimageadI’m Adrienne Diaz from Mu Associate Chapter. I run the online shop ‘La Vida Lazuli’. I started my shop La Vida Lazuli in order to share my craftiness with my family and friends as well as the rest of the world. I sell all handmade products inspired by the various musings of my life.It started off with selling my Calavera Cuties which are these felt sugar skull ornaments with embroidered designs on them. Then I added other embroidered art pieces and then custom knit beanies with our letters on them. I also offered to make them for other Greek Lettered Orgs and that’s when I just started listing everything online. I also make custom jewelry and have just begun graphic design to make shirts. I’m always creating and I just want to share what  I can.

I create custom vinyl and etched pieces and vinyl tshirts. I have done anything from frames, wood pieces, shot glasses, and wine bottles. These pieces can be used as home decor, gifts, or wedding decorations. I pride myself on working with my clients to create something that is beautiful, worthwhile, and special. You can contact me via email at or on Facebook at Jamara Redd Trotter. Also, each piece is custom made and tailored to the client. Just because something has not been done does not mean that it can not be done. – Jamara Redd Trotter, Gamma Associate Chapter

20160709_115725-1Arbonne has been around for 36 years.  It is a Health and Wellness company that is Botanically based, gluten free, vegan cerfified and no GMO’s (genetically modified organsisms).  Our philosophy is; pure, safe and beneficial.  We adhere to European Standards…in the US we banned 11 ingredients that are put into our products (it takes 26 seconds for the chemicals to enter our blood stream) and 1300 ingredients are banned in Europe.  It consists of skin care products, weight loss, cosmetics, nutrition, detox and everything in between. *** I was introduced to Arbonne about two years ago and I ordered here and there but I only really stuck to the same product.  The day that I was invited to go to a motivational meeting i decided, “What the heck I have nothing to lose!”  So that night I was really motivated and inspired by all of the other women who are doctors, teachers, lawyers, stay-at-home moms (I have been a stay at home mom for several years now), men, personal trainers, CPA’s, and people of all ages doing this business and being successful.  Nobody told me about these people… I saw them there being recognized for all of their work that they are putting in to be at the level that they want to be in their business.  You go as far as you want to go!  So like I said that night was great that I decided I want to do it!!!  Every new product that I have been using makes me feel even more excited about Arbonne and what i’m going to purchase next.  I know you will love it as much as I do.- Paola Gonzalez, Beta associate chapter- Kandid 32
