Rather than hypothesizing about what would happen if walls could talk, the masterminds behind Lacy Bella Designs invented an alternative way for walls to express themselves: vinyl decals. Their catalog of easy-to-apply designs, in a rainbow of colors, includes a variety of humorous and inspirational phrases, though customers can also create customized designs featuring a favorite saying, song lyric, or friend’s Social Security number. Chalkboard decals include larger boards for making lists on the fridge as well as smaller labels for jars and containers. Attached with a removable adhesive, the designs are ideal for indoor application in household areas such as bedrooms, kitchens, and entryways. Customers unsure of how a design will mesh with their decor can email Lacy Bella Designs a photo of the room they want to decorate and their favorite design; the staff will edit the design into the photo, free of charge.
Master photographer Trey Allen boasts a resumé of national awards and the experience of snapping shutters for nearly 30 years. He brings that expertise to portrait sessions that frame subjects with copiously colored and styled studio backgrounds or five acres of gardens, wildflower fields, and stone patios along the Little Arkansas River—though he can also travel to a more personally significant destination, such as the site where a couple shared their first meatball sub. Trey readies subjects for each shoot with extensive online tips for session preparation, and reveals the fruits of each shoot at a proofing session as early as the next day. From there, patrons determine which shots are worthy of graduating to one of Trey's prints or digital-image CDs prepped in-studio by his highly knowledgeable staff within a month after the shoot.
