“Anything that is personally created or given is more sentimental”. This is Burns’ inspiration behind her company flair 37, LLC and the basis of her Rustic flair & Brush do it yourself workshops and Snapliliments ® program.
In 2018, Rustic Flair & Brush (RF&B) was launched as a creative workshop where friends, groups and organizations can come together and create personalized décor with their own personal flair. From there she continued to grow with more bookings for groups and private parties. “I have always loved creating as long as I can remember. Being creative is an outlet that I thrive on and something I am passionate about. I love being able to give that experience to others,” said Burns.
Hosting a RF&B event is great for fundraisers, bachelorette and birthday parties, team building, work functions or for any group that wants to get together. Burns is planning an extensive class schedule for the upcoming spring & summer months including kids craft workshops, project-based learning sessions, adult workshop classes and mommy & me classes. Most classes will be preregistration; however, there will be some drop-in kid craft sessions. Events are found on the website and Facebook page.
Upcoming public events include a Front Porch Make Over workshop will be held at the studio, Sunday, Jun. 9, 1-4 p.m. RF&B will welcome guest Sheila Graham from Tiffin Interior Design for design tips while crating a personal sign. Choose a custom front porch sign to make and Graham will give tips and tricks for curbside appeal. All signs are custom and your specific details. Bring a 8.5 x 11 picture of the front of your house, all other supplies will be provided. Artistic skill is not needed for any of the classes; cost is $50, preregister at flair37.com.
In 2015, Burns developed Snapliments®. The program offers educators, coaches, parents, groups and organizations an affordable way to recognize and motivate others for going above and beyond. The program is customized to individual needs and tailored to fit a classroom/group with personalized patent pending Snap-its, I Can Ribbons and Snap Cap products. Snap-its (a cross between a flair pin and snap) are given out for compliments, similar to how scouts earn badges and football players receive helmet stickers. The program can be found in local organizations in Seneca and surrounding counties. At the new studio location, you’ll be able to customize a program for your organization.
Burns has lived in Tiffin for 17 years after graduating from Otterbein College of Westerville, OH with a degree in Public Relations, Art and a Certified Journalism Educator accreditation from the Journalism Education Association. While teaching students graphic design, assisting with school publications and directing summer workshops, Burns saw additional needs in her schools and community; motivation and FUN fundraisers. Her occasional Free Lance opportunities And Independent Rep experiences was the birth of Flair 37, LLC. Today, Burns is looking to make a strong impact in our community and youth of today. In 2018, Flair 37, LLC donated over $3,500 to local organizations through her workshops.
