Meet The Bloom Brigade!


With a little bit of the story of Power Poppy unveiled yesterday, today we get to share some of the "faces" that will help bring Power Poppy to full bloom! We affectionately call this fabulous and fierce team "The Bloom Brigade" because as you'll soon see - each one has a wild and beautiful facet that they bring with them! Want to learn a little more about this creative force of artistic talent? Marcella asked each of us a question and many of them made us say... "Hmmmm...." Here's mine below! 

Q. Who did you write fan letters to as a teen? 

A. Truth is, I haven't written a fan letter in my life! But, when I was a tween, I loved Michael Jackson. You know that young swoony kind of love? Now I look back and think it's pretty hysterical. I would spend hours dancing and dancing and singing and dancing. I had pretty much every MJ poster ever made and even had a red "Member's Only" jacket that kind of, sort of looked like his trademark "Thriller" jacket. When I was 11, my family got cable and I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I could watch the Thriller video on MTV over, and over, and over again (they played it for days on a loop) and I could learn the "infamous" dance. I think that's why Marcella and I "jive" so well -- we both know beyond a shadow of a doubt that dancing is a form of communication. Feeling down? Dance! Feel over the moon excited? Dance! Need to improve your work mojo? DaNcE! Want to make your kids turn a special shade of embarrassed red? DANCE! Another fun fact? The Thriller album that I listened to from dawn to dusk as a teen is now on a shelf in my teenage son's bedroom. He thought it was pretty darn cool. Score one in the "Cool Mom" column!

These wonderfully dynamic women all have different "sides" to their lives! See what makes their creativity click! Learn a little more as you hop on over and see.....
