My name is Toneylynn and I’m the owner and creative force behind Darling Daydream. I’m a proud cat mom, lefty, and hand lettering artist. My calligraphy journey started in October 2015 when I took my very first Modern Calligraphy workshop. At the time I was working as a performer on a cruise ship and I was looking for a creative hobby that would be easy to travel with. Little did I know this fun hobby of mine would turn into so much more. Pretty soon calligraphy became something I would do when I needed to get away from the stress of work.
To this day, calligraphy is still something that brings me so much joy and I’m so excited to share this with you all!

SUCCULENT CARE KIT
Succulent Care Kit is basically a business cover for two moms trying to justify their succulentaddiction. Lauri and Sarah met through their kids’ kindergarten class almost 20 years ago. Now, with the kids fledging their respective nests, the gals have traded bake sales and backpacks for garden gloves and colorpacks. Their kit was the outgrowth of wanting to have a set of garden tools, specifically tailored for taking care of their succulents, in one convenient place. Having just launched their business early last year, they have enjoyed the journey so far immensely. Life is ALWAYS better in the garden!

Maria’s Mixers’ humble roots began from the experiences of a bustling mixologist. An already sought-after bartender, Maria, was booked weekend after weekend with the numerous event requests coming her way. From the overwhelming disproportion of supply and demand Maria’s Mixers was born. What began as a single woman operation has expanded to servicing three of the largest counties in the state of California! It all started by putting together a plan of action for connecting party-planners with available bartenders. Since then, Maria continues provide exceptional service behind the bar while managing a growing team of servers, hosts and of course; bartenders!
LEMA Candles is an eco-friendly small batch candle company that donates 10% to local animal rescues. It is run by two ladies originally from Chicago who now live in LA, Tina and Sarah. They saved a couple kittens together which changed their lives and made them want to find a way to give back. They're candles are made with 100% Soy Wax and use chemical free fragrance so they’re safe to burn around you, your kids, and your pets! Additionally the amber glass jars are reusable once the candle burns all the way down. In 2019 they raised $1,090.00 for luxe paws and hope to double that in 2020!
