About

That love will penetrate to the deepest parts of wounded hearts, and so the journey begins...

We live in the most creative place one could ever imagine to live in. For those who don't know there is a God who loves you extravagantly, He is the ultimate creator of all creation, and we get to sit under his love and co-create with him beautiful things that inspire us, move us, and grip out hearts for the sake of love. I can remember back in seventh grade sitting in art class and receiving lower grades on the items I had created or painted. Feeling rather discouraged I closed myself off to thinking I was artistic. Lie. Not true. Everyone is creative in someway, it is all forms of expression. In 2009 I started crocheting, this turned into a fast paced touque/beanie sales opportunity. I couldn't make them fast enough for people who wanted them! Over that year my creative, artistic ideas grew and grew. I began painting, had great desires to try pottery, and loved sewing! Eventually by 2010 I started making feather earrings, and it progressed from there.

In 2010 I moved to Mammoth Lakes, California where I got to spend 8 months discovering who I am, and knowing where I stand in the world, and experiencing how I am so loved by God. I grew up thinking my identity was in what I did. There is that frequently asked question of "who are you?" and I found most often I would start describing myself by what I did, not who I am. Why? Because I had no idea who I was. Which I think is quite common amongst western culture, everyone is trying to "make it" but what are they trying to make or make it for. During this time my heart started to break for injustices around the world, starvation, abuse, prostitution. I have travelled to 22 countries and spent time in some of the most unlovely places where death is waiting around every corner. We cannot love, until we realize we are loved. I spent some time dreaming and facing the truth that I really loved fashion and creating pieces. I dream of one day being able to speak love to an industry that has the power to shred peoples self worth and creative being. To speak love to models who are consistently told they aren't good enough. To embrace beauty as it is made and intended to be, whether it is race, color, or size. We are all loved, we are all beautiful.

So in starting this shop, I desired to raise awareness for human trafficking. Where girls every day are stolen from their homes, from the streets, all over the world, are knocked unconscious, raped repeatedly, taken to a foreign place where they know no one or even where they are, and are sold to a life of sexual slavery. I desire to raise awareness of the beauty of culture, of ethnicities around the world, to bring light to the darkness that we are afraid to look at because it means we have to do something about it. To reveal to a broken society that beauty is from within, if we have not love in our hearts, what comes out of us is not beautiful. To tell girls and women all over who have been disempowered, beaten down, had dreams crushed, were told they're not beautiful because they don't fit the male fantasy, you are beautiful, you are worthy of love, you are princess' and queens! Be you until you're full. Be-u-til-ur-full. Beautiful. To shed light on the truth, that love is what the world wants, needs, lives to find, and what the one and only died for. Justice. Truth. Love.

Enjoy and be drenched in LOVE!
