A couple days ago, my friend Jihan Zencirli (creator of the wildly gorgeous Geronimo Balloons), pulled into Seattle for a whirlwind business trip. I thought it would be fun to snap a few pictures of her setting up out on the street as she prepped for a pop up shop at Seattle's Object (more on this fabulous boutique in a couple of days). Plus, the little outing gave me an excuse to don a pair of heels mid-afternoon...can't remember the last time I did that! Since the whole process was such a visual treat, I wanted to share a handful of snippets of the chief balloon trooper creating the magic she is now known for~
I've been so impressed with how Jihan has built her business--she's worked so hard to make this happen and I've enjoyed every minute of her success. Watching anyone, especially a friend, make their dreams happen is absolutely wonderful. I think this is particularly inspiring and uplifting when it's a creative endeavor. Here's to making your dreams happen too!
Oh, and if you're wondering who Jihan's handsome friend is, his name is Andy and he is the creator behind Seattle-based Whitcomb & Company--a handcrafted furniture line with a warm, industrial spirit.
The making of a Geronimo balloon certainly turned a few heads on the street. We could use a little more cheeriness out and about lately here in Seattle and what better way than with these helium head turners!
And then it was time to pick up the older kids at school...back to real life! :)
