Hey there, I'm Lisa!

One thing you need to know about me is that I came into the world smiling. While it hasn't always been easy to do, I've worked hard to keep a positive attitude despite challenges over the years. For a while I became my own worst enemy, but I wasn't willing to stay in that negative headspace.

Which is when I decided to actively cultivate a positive attitude (a bit of fake it 'til you make it) and began making custom army jackets, bags and sweatshirts with ‘feel good’ sayings on them or added sparkle and bling that instantly gave me a happy feeling. I wanted to share that feeling with others.

So I started selling them to see what people would think, and to my surprise (and delight) they made other people happy, too!

I truly felt that I'd uncovered my purpose and wanted to grow my passion project into a brand that could bring more joy to more people. I found some manufacturing plants to work with me and dove head first into crafting custom flannels, sweaters, cardigans, jackets, hats, cross body bags and other goodies infused with positive messages.The kind of mantras and affirmations we could all use a little more of in our lives.

Now it's an honor that I get to share all of this with YOU and hopefully bring both style and positivity into your life. I'm working hard to expand and add to the 2 to 5 Designs online boutique so continue checking back to see what's been updated to the shop. You'll also be able to find some of our goods displayed at boutiques around Boston.

I couldn't build this happy lifestyle brand without the support of my three teenage boys, crazy-amazing husband, the cutest dog ever (Wallis), and of course all of YOU. Thank you from the bottom of this vertically challenged, glitter loving, Bravo addicted, mama's heart for cheering me and encouraging me to do all the things my younger self would have been much too scared to do.

Keep smiling, be happy.
