Solislux, like so many other fabulous dream-makers in the world has found a reason to put our necks on the line for an idea that we so passionately believe in. We had the pleasure of meeting two ladies who believe in their company just as we do! So read on and learn a little bit more about Gifts, Frames & More!

I started this online business after juggling a twenty plus year career in the telecommunications industry as a marketing executive, and being a mom and homemaker. My interests have always been to seek out just the right gift for this person, or something really special for that location in my home, or just the right venue for a corporate event. This is what has lead me to Gifts, Frames, and More which is my new creative outlet and my full time business.

Ms. Barbara
Owner/Founder

Jacqueline and I had the pleasure of photographing the many wonderful gifts! The creativity and simplicity of these items is what had us so fascinated. We ooh-ed and aww-ed over every item before discerning the correct location for it’s closeup. The picture frames are magnetized so you can quickly and easily change an image out once you grow tired of it. The decorations around the images are completely changeable depending on the season or your relationship with the subject matter. One of my personal favorites were the wine bottle racks. They were shaped to look like a cat or dog and made such a beautiful piece to hold your favorite bottle of Merlot.

The shopping experience is easy too! You can order online or host a party with your friends! Visit Gifts, Frames & More to check out there unique offerings or to see if you can find our images! Show your support for the elite group of women entrepreneurs by liking their Facebook page!

Keep up the great work ladies and thank you for your support!

Clean World, Clean Hands.

November 12th, 2011

It’s a simple concept really.

It’s a simple concept really. You wash your hands and instead of the chemicals and the toxins, the dyes and “other” ingredients going down the drain back into our soils and environment, they are omitted completely. A pure soap that cleans just as any ol’ soap should and it doesn’t hurt our environment or contaminate our waters. You get a Clean World and Clean Hands.

Meet Tony everyone! Tony is a bio-chemist and the founder of Clean World Clean Hands. He spent years in the lab of a major consumer products company, developing new formulas that could potentially change the world…or at least make somebody richer. Upon realizing the damage that was being inflicted upon our world, he developed a simple soap.

So how does it work? That is an excellent question, one that I am not qualified to answer…BUT there is a short video that will give you valuable information.

It’s our world, and all it takes to make change is a little support. These causes don’t get the proper start because enough people don’t stand up and show their support. We might not see the effects we have on the envirnoment now, but we shouldn’t sit idly waiting for that day…we should make sure that day never comes. So are you going to help change the world? All you have to do is wash your hands.

Please visit the Clean World Clean Hand Campaign Site to learn how you can help or “Like” them on Facebook.

There’s nothing quite like a specialty toy store, a quaint inviting location where the staff cares about the well being of each and every client that walks through its doors. Learning Express is one such place where there are four walls dedicated to children of all age groups with everything from science projects to Thomas the Tank Engine wooden train sets.



Between these walls are racks and shelves with bright, engaging play favorites including displays of Uglydolls, Sanrio characters and the must have items that are embellishing playgrounds of today. Seat yourself on Plasma Cars that wind their way indoors or outdoors without battery or peddle operation and even take a stroll around that infamous sign at 123 Sesame Street.


Besides an array of educational toys, the staff packs a talent unlike that found in any chain toy store. For a small additional price there is extra care taken to specialize any item be it an Easter bucket, step stool or a Gogo’s Crazy bones carrying case. As every child loves to see their name etched across their favorite collectables you’d be excited to know that Learning Express packs a large collection of personalized product.

The innovative product mix at Learning Express is carefully selected from manufacturers around the world – classic toys that have passed the test of time alongside the newest, ground-breaking toys of the digital age. Every Learning Express toy encourages curiosity and creativity and has extraordinary play value. The selection is complemented with items from other industries – jewelry, fashion accessories, kids’ stationery, and personalized items.
Learning Express


They pride themselves on selling learning tools, but their name goes further in the community as they are known for many local civic projects.

A teacher affects eternity; she can never tell where her influence stops. Henry Adams

My most amazing soon-to-be mother-in-law has been a second grade teacher for roughly thirty years. Over that time she’s gently molded the inquisitive minds of bitty eight year olds, taught them immortal life lessons and assisted these tiny people in finding their true potential. The significance of a wonderful teacher in our lifetime is fundamental by instilling in us a love of learning and nurturing the bright minds of similarly important vocations of tomorrow. Cyndi has invested so much in so many generations of children and I was greatly privileged when she asked for my assistance in one of her current end-of-the-year projects.


She’s presently in charge of planning the ideal retirement party for her charming eighty-plus year old assistant named Evie. In my time observing the ever-youthful Miss Evie I can assure you that her age is but a number as this kind-hearted lady was full of more vigor and enthusiasm than all of those second graders combined. She has spent most of the years at this school hustling between classes and grades always intently pushing book-loaded carts, contributing one-on-one time educating, loving and encouraging all of the students [and teachers] she’s come into contact with.



Upon meeting the “star” of my photography assignment, she had emphatically gathered both of my hands into hers, stared up at me with brilliant blue eyes and marveled over my profession and my induction into Cyndi’s family. I promptly learned that darling Evie passionately admires the art of photography as her father had once been a freelancing photographer when she was a girl, decades ago. She even admitted to possessing his albums of vintage snapshots, all delicately cared for and proudly displayed. In the few hours I spent in her company I genuinely knew that this precious “assistant” was more than that, she’s a beloved gem and I was honored to have become acquainted with her.


My assignment had been simple; I was to stealthily photograph Evie in her usual surroundings as well as capture her interactions within the classroom. What she ironically failed to relay in our conversation was that she was indeed extremely camera shy [who would have guessed that she had been the daughter of a distinguished photographer?], but Cyndi had fortunately cued me in. Comically, without having the slightest idea of my intentions Evie had vanished numerous times, only to return sunglasses in place and pep in her step.

For those of you who have been following along with us you’ve come to know that my heart belongs to my eight year old little brother, accordingly this age group had a way of enchanting me. They were eager to please and shared in my “super secret” of which Evie had not known [where to her understanding I had been around to photograph the kids]. I was given a break-dance performance and witnessed their clever antics, yet was even more amazed by Cyndi and Miss Evie’s patience and dedication.


I was dismissed having soaked in a life lesson of my own that day which the children chimed aloud. With assertively placed hands to their hearts they repeated that the most important gifts we can give are those “that come from the heart”. Those said “gifts from the heart” include the kinds which make our Mommy’s and Daddy’s cry even though we don’t understand why. ;-)


Yet unlike my eight year old peers I understood the impact of such souvenirs, images like these would be just that. They were special pieces of personalized fine art, depicting the invaluable contributions this soul has given to the school system. Evie will be truly and greatly missed, but her involvement and cultivation of these young minds will exist long after her retirement. That, I can promise without a doubt.

Thank you Miss Evie, you’re a true inspiration.

Snip, Snip Goes the Scissors.

In between pacifiers, gummy smiles, spit up rags and wide-eyed wonder we delightfully welcomed our first corporate client, Maestros Hair Studio [link here]. Quite a different change of pace, Solis and I dove right into the industrious world of a specialty hair salon thereby getting to waddle our feet in a new photographic arena.


Even though Maestros was consumed by ever demanding surroundings the attention to detail we needed was much like that of photographing an infant as there was a quiet precision to each of the girls. This session, however, wasn’t about waiting for the moment when a monumental giggle emerged but anticipating the craft that would renovate and revamp an image.

Maestro[noun]: Master of an art, teacher.


From chemical straightening to special occasion updos, Maestros packs a team of master stylists who are both welcoming and sociable. We were affectionately taken in and at once were swept up by the characteristic aura emanating from their delicate fingertips to the enthusiastic and professional way each lady responded to client demands.


Each piece of equipment upon the many stations served a valuable purpose, whether they were for clipping, curling, straightening or dyeing. Most exciting to Solis and I was that we were not simply capturing the professionals but the tools of these artists as well, the products that help to make this salon a successful and proficient machine.


The experience you deliver to your customers should be one that prospers a long and meaningful connection; a wonderful lesson we took away from working with Maestros and its personnel. As photographers we are responsible for portraying the visual aspects of our lives and stylists are there to mold them. We are both working one in the same; creating art through the use of varying instruments to build an emotional connection for our clients.


Thank you, Maestros for allowing us to dip into your busy studio to capture a slice of your flourishing atmosphere and pleasurable business culture. We aspire to use your conscientious example to help cultivate our own prospects and also make a lasting effect on the community.
