These are the behind-the-scenes, in-between moments – the small peeks that would otherwise be forgotten. Join us as we use this series to scrapbook the unedited, memorable happenings at Lily & Val and what is inspiring our team!

Lily & Val Presents: Pretty Ordinary Friday #55 shares Valerie McKeehan's first Chalk Art piece that started Lily & Val, Lily and Val celebrated their 5th Anniversary, Stash tea in an Anthropologie mug1. “This week marked the 5 year anniversary of LIly & Val! It’s surreal and I’ve been feeling super nostalgic all week. In honor of the occasion, I decided to show the VERY first chalkboard I drew. This is the board that started it all! It’s somewhat cheesy and embarrassing to me, but it goes to show how important practice is! For those getting started in chalk lettering, you can totally do this.” Valerie
