Another Featured Designer Friday is here Sweet Shoppers, and this week we’re bringing you part two of Allie Llacer’s beautiful 4 in ’14 spotlight which is going to give you a peek at her bucket list, a look at some of her favorite kits and MORE!

Don’t forget between now and next Thursday, December 4th, you’ll get Hello Winter, Allie’s whimsical full-sized featured designer kit, FREE when you spend $10 in the shoppe!
I rarely take selfies, or solo pics. So I’m usually only in the picture if I have someone take a picture of the family. Joseph and I were married 12 years ago. Austin is 7 and Ashleia is 5. Not sure about the age of the orangutan mother and child, though. 1 – Taken in Singapore Zoo this summer, 2 & 4 – A photoshoot with the entire extended family, 3 – Our family at a Church wedding.
Amazing countries I’ve been to and wouldn’t mind going back.
(top left) Gondola ride in Venice during our honeymoon. We also went to Rome, Florence, Pisa, Verona.
(top right) Huangshan Mountains in China. I went with my parents before I was married. We also went to the Great Wall, Beijing and Shanghai. I’ve visited China several more times since, but didn’t do much sightseeing anymore.
(bottom left) Legoland in Malaysia. Our first vacation with only the 4 of us. We flew to Singapore then took a bus to Malaysia, stayed at the Legoland Hotel and had tons of fun! The park wasn’t crowded so we enjoyed the rides as many times as we want.
(bottom right) The Louvre, France. After our paid tour in Italy during our Honeymoon, we took a train to France and explored Nice and Paris on our own! Eiffel Tower, boat ride in the Seine River, museums and the constant hunt for restaurants that serve rice.
My Bucket List. (top left) Witness an Aurora. (top right) Fly on a hot air balloon.. preferably over something scenic. (bottom left) Learn to play the piano. I’m not musically-inclined, but the sound of the piano makes my heart happy. (bottom right) Play with snow and build a snowman. As someone who wears summer clothing the whole year, I’ve been to a few places where it was very cold (for me) but never actually saw snow.
A Few of My Random Favorites! (top left) Salt and pepper squid. I always try to order this when the menu has it. (top right) The Fray. Went to their concert in Manila to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary 2 years ago. Love their music! (bottom left) My collection of Coach bags. And this satchel is my absolute favorite. (bottom right) Lindsay Phillips switchflops. Straps to make your flipflops match your outfit? Yes, please!
Here are just a few of my favorite kits too! Ho Ho Ho – I love the homespun look. Baby Girl – I love both Boy and Girl kits! Beach Boys – I also love both Boy and Girl kits! Zombiemania – I had so much fun working on this kit!
Don’t forget to check back in with us next Friday and every Friday after that as we put the rest of our incredible designers into the spotlight. Each of them have such quirky personalities that I’m positive each week will bring new surprises and special treats that we can’t wait to share with you!
