CHECK YOUR INBOXES | JULY NEWSLETTER #3

Time Capsule Letter Template by Atiliay.com

The final newsletter for the month of July went out earlier this week! It includes the Time Capsule Letters PDF template, July shares, and words about Makani. Here is a sampling of some of the items from this month’s shares:


The Tail End. This article is a MUST read. I came across it years ago and have been searching for it since when it landed in my inbox recently! The author lays out and measures our lifespan using images to represent how many more times we will experience something. They range from silly things like how many more tacos we will eat to how many more times we will see our parents or a loved one. The visual really puts things in perspective for me. It’s such an important reminder to make the best of the time we have.

If I Have A Son by Ruth B. This song and music video is so powerful, beautiful, important, heart breaking, honest. Here is an excerpt from the chorus: 

Your skin, it glitters like gold / There’s love inside of your soul / But no matter what you say no matter what you do / This world will never be as friendly to you

I’ve been a fan of hers ever since hearing Lost Boy several years ago.

FLEURS DE PRAIRIE – SEEDS OF BEAUTY GRANT FOR CREATORS

I am very excited to share with you that the Seeds of Beauty Grant, a campaign supporting women creatives by Fleurs de Prairie, is back for its second year!

I was lucky enough and so honored to be one of the recipients of this grant in 2019. It was an amazing opportunity to help grow my business and I am extremely appreciative to have been chosen! The grant allowed me to take the next step in my business and outsource the printing of my cards for a cause, create more products, and most importantly, continue to give back. I wanted to share this grant with you in case it can help support you and your goals, ideas, and dreams, or those of someone you may know. Below are more details!

WHO IS FLEURS DE PRAIRIE?

WHAT IS THE SEEDS OF BEAUTY CAMPAIGN?

Fleurs de Prairie’s Seeds of Beauty Campaign is designed to recognize and support women who are dedicated to creating beauty in their communities through art, design, food, writing and beyond! FDP embraces the idea that we can help inspire one another and #FleurishTogether! Through Seed Grants, Fleurs de Prarie will provide creators with the means to positively impact the world.

WHAT IS A SEED GRANT?

Seed Grants in the amount of $5000 will be given to three creators to help them grow their brand and create even more beauty around us. In addition, grant recipients will also receive a mentorship opportunity and guidance to help grow their businesses.

WHAT’S NEW // CAT IN A BOX CARD

Makani In A Box :)

Ever since I got this picture of Makani sitting in the box my French Paper Co. order came in, I wanted to make a cat in a box card!  It took me some time to figure out the layout for the card, how to get the cat on the card with ears sticking out, and of course what the kitty would look like.  After trying several things, I finally came up with a finished product I was happy with!

The “box” part of the card is kraft paper and the cat is block printed with paint, cut out, and attached to the card.  There are many variations available for the cats- different colors, stripes, no stripes, etc.  I can even make a custom cat if you’d like to send me a photo!  Each card comes with a white envelope and should put a smile on your favorite cat lover’s face!

A portion of proceeds from every card will be donated to The Lange Foundation to support their work in saving dogs and cats from euthanasia and finding them loving forever homes.

Take a look at the finished product as well as the cards with some of my muses ;)

{You can purchase the cards at atiliay’s Etsy shop!}
