Today's Buffalo Boss Babes are the creative duo Jillian Cannan & Colleen Dickerson from  Buffalo Collective Studio. This studio is so cool and unique. They offer customized pallet parties so  unlike other parties where everyone makes the same thing you can choose what you want to make!! These gals host DIY wood sign (pallet parties) and Apparel painting parties throughout Western New York. It give you the chance to create unique, rustic & shabby chic wood decor, pillows and apparel from scratch.They were so successful in their first year they opened a second location!! We chatted with Jill and Colleen about how they got started and more!!

What made you start or brought you to where you are today? Tell us your story and what makes you a Buffalo Boss Babe. 

We were two stay at home moms who both wanted to do something creative while still being able to be home with our kids. Our space in South Buffalo became available and it was a no-brainer. We got into the space and just started to brainstorm and the rest is history.
