A little bit of everything

Hello, long time no blog hey?!? Sorry about that friends, I really wanted to post on several occasions however due to the virus that has destoryed my computer I was unable to do so. That is a little bit of a cop out, because yes of course I could go out of my way and find a place to use the computer to do the post. Yes I could have done that but then I would have slowed down on the production on my newest line :)

Thats right, last week I was lucky enough to work with Samanta (photographer) to shoot my Fall/Winter 2012 Lennard Taylor Collection! YAYYYYYYYYYY!!! I am very pleased with the creations, and the photos are spectacular! As soon as its all put together I will let you all know by posting on here :)

I wanted to touch base about a friend of mine named Brendon. Him and I were introduced to each other this past summer and have kind of hit it off. Brendon makes unbelievable bags, backpacks, toe straps for bicycles and a few other wicked items. (He also lets me sew some leathers at his studio which is in the exchange church around the corner) Now I try and live a pretty neutral life, I try not to cause harm and try and help those around me when they need. Brendon goes above and beyond almost everyday! Just this past week I was sewing at the Exchange community Church and this crack cocaine addict was having bad withdrawals asked for help. Brendon instantly dropped everything and spent and hour or so on the phone and then ended up taking the guy to a couple places to get him all sorted for the rehab course. Now this isn't the first time he has helped out the homeless in the community, he regularly feeds the lot of them in the church out of his own pocket. He is an inspiration and truly a wonderful human being, just thought you all should know!

In other news I had a fashion show this past weekend for the Never Alone Foundation. The event must have had over 150 volunteers of models, dancers, choreographers, hair, makeup etc etc etc. Wow it was quite a production! I was very pleased to be part of it!!! I will post a video of it as soon as I can :)

I have a couple other opportunities which are starting to blossom, so please keep sending those positive vibes my way and I'll reciprocate by sending more positive vibes out! Much love friends

The First week back is always the hardest

Hello everyone and happy new year :) How were all your holidays? I trust they were wonderful!!!! Please email with warm stories to

I started working again after a week off during the holidays, wow what a shocker to get back into it. Monday and Tuesday were returning emails and sketching the final drafts for my 2012 F/W collection. Wednesday was organization and completing application forms for Folkfest and Fringe and then proper football (soccer) of which I busted and crushed my holiday worn body.

owwweeeeeee was thursday morning, my neck and back messed up. I tossed my phone to what I thought was my jacket/sweater and missed and broke it, came to my computer to get phone numbers/emails for people I needed to contact and a virus had destroyed my computer! (I curse hackers/virus makers)

Shoulders/neck still aching I pushed through the rest of the week. The positive that I took away from all the downers of the past week was the fact that I stayed mindful that everything has an opposite reaction. That being said I was saying to myself that while all this bad is happening it must mean that somewhere along the line, something wonderful will happen, this makes me smile! :D

A new week has begun and wowwwzzaaa what a different from last week, I woke this morning bursting with love and energy!!! I am finishing my collection for Fall Winter 2012, Im very excited about this one friends!!!! oooh meee oh my life is wonderful!!! Enjoy the warmth of another day on this wonderful planet!!!!

In other news I have started tweeting :) please follow me @lennardTaylor

Be well and keep smiling,
