Being a Change Agent

Be an Intentional Change Agent / Make a difference in your field and impact others along the way / and recap from Latism16 conference / by Wanda from Wanda Lopez Designs #Latism16

Last week I spent a couple of days at a conference that impacted me tremendously. I was invited by a friend and speaker. We have been great fans and cheerleaders of each others work for a very long time now, but had never met in person. I know you have friendships like that too. (more…)

Start where you are

We are not meant to do it all alone. For months I have been saying those words to myself, yet I have been going the opposite way.

Start where you are. Are you looking into starting a photography career? / by Wanda Lopez from wandalopez.com

The reality is that my photography has evolved, but I have a long way to go. For starter I need to start using the DSLR my husband got for me about three holidays ago. Can you relate to that? As a self taught handbag designer and maker I have felt the struggle. The words, “The struggle is real”, are no joke. But, learning as I go is not always that bad.

Pink on the go

As a cancer survivor I can’t let a day go by without being thankful. Thankful for being here, raising my girls, loving my family, making handbags for you and growing in such a beautiful community of smart, creative, and powerful women.

My prayers are will all of you.

Back to school organized and cute

Back to school!

Can you believe is that time of the year, it’s way too fast. Is not even about the fact that summer is soon coming to an end and fall is sneaking right behind, it’s that vacations went by way too fast. We were still savoring the long summer days when without much notice we were buying school supplies. Can you relate? I have a feeling you can.
