  12. Anita Rivera says:

    Good morning my dear Lisa!

    I was just about to get off the computer when I saw a new comment…..and low and behold, there you were. You are always there, and in my heart and memory, you always will be.

    I went yesterday to see the dress in the window. It looks fantastic. Ruben was with me, but the morning was SO COLD and he was not properly dressed, so we were not able to savor the moment very long. A nice sign with MY NAME and information is in the window, and I believe that more is to be done to this space in the next week. I will take another photo.

    Your comment to me is so special. I could literally save every comment, every word of encouragement and advice and make a book of it. ONCE UPON A LIFE will be one of my chapters, and as you say, diverse abilities and interests can be chosen on any given day to just simply use for the GLORY of God. Now that is a thought my friend, and thank you for directing me to that healthy way of thinking about all of this.

    An email or Skype is in order; when you are ready.

    You are just fantastic and I cannot wait to talk!!! THANKS FOR VISITING! Anita

  13. Frances says:

    Your new designs are gorgeous! Will these be offered at The Loft? We’re trying to narrow down our choices to one venue and of course we have the best floral designer/event planner there is—YOU! I’m thrilled to be working with you and know our wedding will be spectacular because Bilancia Designs is such a huge part of it!
    Thank you for all you’re doing for us!!
    Frances and Michael

  14. Ashlyn says:

    See you soon!

  15. Robin says:

    Hi Lisa!
    Incredibly beautiful! I LOVE YOUR STYLE! You never cease to amaze me.
    Can’t wait to see the rest of the line!!!!
    Have a great week!!
    xo Robin

  16. Barb says:

    Oh, Lisa, your designs are exquisite! Almost makes me want to get married again. :) I love the rustic barn wedding! Did you see my post back in August of the outdoor wedding I helped to decorate. It was very pretty but I did not get the best pictures. Another gal and I did the floral arrangements in blue mason jars for the tables. They had used a lot of burlap too and had made little pouches for the silverware.
    You are going to have so much success with this!
    xo Barb

  17. Sarah says:

    I am in LOVE with this wedding line!! Such lovely designs–it will be hard for me to choose (or can I have one of each??? ha ha). I hope you don’t make us wait too long for the rest of the collection.

  18. Fairfield House says:

    You have done it again, my sweet friend. Beautiful creations that set the stage for perfect beginnings. Love all of it and want to scoop up a few pieces for the Fairfield House!
    Your Friend,

    Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for the update! Happy to hear about the break (more on this later).
    Lovely designs and soooo unique. I’ve never met anyone with such vision/style. When is the launch, by the way? Open to the public, I hope? Happy to hear about all the new changes. SO wonderful for you! So many lucky brides!! :)
    Cheers from NY

  22. Anita Rivera says:

    Good morning my dear! First I “see” you on Pinterest, now I see you came to my post. Ahhhh….I can only imagine the fun (and hard work, of course) that you are engaging in as you create today. I am going to try to DRAW and make some cards. We shall see. But school awaits me Wed. – Fri. and then I need to continue to put on my thinking cap about my next “MOVE.”

    In it all, you have and always will be the special influence that has given me the greatest artistic challenge I have ever had…that is a GOOD THING! LOVE TO YOU my friend. Anita

  23. Irina says:

    Right after our precious Anita!!!
    Lisa, dear, I was thinking of you yesterday….and wanted to come by to leave a hello, you read my mind and visited me…thank you, my friend!!!
    I hope all is wonderful in your world, that you are staying well, warm, and creative….
    Thank you for your lovely wishes, thankfully, I am feeling better…yippee!
    Can’t wait to see what magic you will conjure up next! ;)
    Hugs and love,
    - Irina
