I’m so grateful to have such a fabulous team of interns helping out this summer. Here’s a sneak peak behind the scenes of a recent team project: assembling our new DIY kits! With ribbon, paper and embellishments scattered all over, we managed to put together the first batch of kits that are for sale soon! We’ll be sure to share an update when they are available! In the meantime, here’s a behind the scenes look of what is in progress!

…enjoying some beer listening to live music
… more food. This time sausage cooked by a very young kid!
… they were delicious!
… Ashley with a turkey leg
… people-watching, of course!
… Jeremy *attempting* to win me a prize stopping for a quick snapshot
… watching the boys have fun on this scary ride.
All in all, it was a super fun evening at the Fair! We definitely all left with tummy aches, but had a great time hanging out!

I love this time of year. There are constantly countdowns until Summer Vacation, the “last” college final exam, the “last” day of middle school, graduation annoucements and the excitement about post-high school plans. I remember how much fun it was to look forward to sleeping in, staying up late, going on vacation and enjoying some downtime.
It was such a pleasure to put together this Graduation Mini Album for Lindsey! Here are a few highlights… Congrats to the Class of 2011!

HI! (: My name is Yvonne and I’m going to be a Junior at UCSD. I’m currently majoring in Management Science as well as minoring in International Studies and Accounting. It may seem a bit weird that I’m a marketing intern, but I love this internship because it helps me to become more well-rounded. And, I love the learning experience of e-commerce to competitive analysis. Here are some quirks about me (besides my hair):
You’ll never find me without…a hair tie. (Look at photo above & honestly, it was the wind.)
My favorite scrapbook theme is… FOOD!!! Whether it is of photos of food itself or the reactions of people enjoying food, I believe food offers happiness.
You might be surprised to know that… I’m 1/8th french and I believe inanimate objects bump into me.
My favorite outfit that I would wear everyday (if I could) is… an oversized sweatshirt with volleyball spandex or a tank top and sweats.
I can’t leave the house without… my rainbow sandals because whether I’m wearing heels or flats, they’ll still come in handy.
I collect… dollar coins with different presidents and Domokun products.
I can’t stop smiling when… I think of all the places I could travel to one day and being able to immerse myself in diverse cultures.
My daily remix includes… Corinne Bailey Rae– Put Your Records On/ Feist – One Two Three Four
As of *today* my future goals are… to learn how to brake while rollerblading, to go to Italy, and to eat everything that comes in reach.
PS – Yesterday was Yvonne’s birthday! Yay. Happy birthday, Yvonne!! xo -Becky

Hi everyone! This is Intern Ariel and I will soon to be a senior at UCSD studying Communications. I grew up in Taiwan as a kid but spent my teenage years up north of Cali in Burlingame, down here in L.A. Arcadia, Riverside and now the finest city San Diego! I can proudly say that I’m a California girl with both of my Socal and Norcal experiences! I’m super excited to be part of Team Embellish as a Marketing Intern! I’ve always loved pretty things (Let’s be honest…who doesn’t?) While I’m working on my doodling techniques, I secretly hope to be a scrapbook decorating pro in no time with what I’ll learn from Becky and the Team!
Here’s a few fun facts about me…
You will never find me without… my blackberry!
My favorite scrapbook theme has… a lot of colors!
You might be surprised to know… that I always wanted to learn how to do a cartwheel (true story).
My favorite outfit that I would wear everyday if I could is… a cute flowy sun dress with a hat.
I can’t leave the house without… knowing what is for lunch.
I collect… sunglasses and perfumes. I really do have a lot of both.
I can’t stop smiling when… I see a puppy or a cupcake or a donut.
My daily remix includes… something retro-sounding by Frank Sinatra.
As of *today* my future goal is… to not waste my youth!
You’ll find little traces of me on the Embellish social media networks. So, follow us on Twitter and Facebook! We work hard to keep life Embellished with Love <3

This is a cutesy pre-designed 6×6 album that I put together for my dear friend JoAn. JoAn and I met about a year ago at a networking event and have enjoyed helping each other grow our businesses and have become great friends in the process. xo – JoAn & Brad!
