Noonday Collection

Noonday Collection

My friend Amanda recently became an ambassador for Noonday Collection, a wonderful company that creates a marketplace for artisans from around the world so that they can earn a living!

Here's something from their website:

Noonday Collection is a socially responsible business that uses fashion
to create meaningful opportunities around the world.
To make a difference in some of the world’s most vulnerable communities, we partner with Artisan Businesses that share our passion for building a flourishing world. We develop these businesses through fair trade, empowering them to grow sustainably and to create dignified jobs for people who need them.

How cool is that?

So of course when she asked me to create some pieces for her trunk show and for her to give to her hosts I said yes, because 1. Why would I refuse and order? Lets be honest... and 2. This is such cool idea and so kind of her to want to love on the hosts of her trunk shows as they love on some amazing artisans.

Well last week my son and my husband got sick. gross. Why do the stomach bug and mold and vertigo have to exist? So this week I finally was able to devote the time to make her prints, and I wanted to get them done before her trunk show last night. Thankfully I succeeded!

Here's a video of the process I go through when you order something from my shop.

First I create a template with markers. Then I use my lightpad to copy your quote or painting onto the watercolor paper. Lastly I outline the words!

 

So I finished this print and 5 other smaller ones and was able to deliver them to her when I went to her trunk show last night!

And now I'm gonna tell you about it.

Guys. Seriously. This company is incredible. And the jewelry and bags these artisans make are absolutely gorgeous! I didn't expect to order anything last night but lo and behold! Look at this incredible bag!

It's HUGE. It can hold all of my art supplies plus diapers, wipes, extra clothes, and food for the kiddo(s) and probably even the kiddo(s). And the design is gorgeous. It's so beautiful. And my hubby spoiled me and said I could order it as an anniversary present (3 years on August 9th!).

I can't wait for this box to come. Cannot wait.

And the beautiful thing is that purchasing this bag instead of one from Target is helping Peruvian artists earn a living! That's what I love about Noonday. It's about creating a marketplace for artisans from around the world so that they can earn a living!

So next time you need some jewelry or a new bag or a gift for a friend please think about ordering from Noonday! Here is a link to Amanda's online trunk show where you can shop! And you can contact Amanda from there if you have any questions about anything! She would love to chat with you!

And next time you need something to decorate your walls, order from my shop! Hahaha, mostly kidding... mostly.

Love you guys!
