In Good Company: Moorea Seal – A Stylish Company with Heart

Moorea Seal ShopI’ve been following über talented and inspiring Moorea Seal on instagram for a while now, and am never disappointed by her eye for beauty and the thoughtful way that she goes about sharing the world around her. So when I heard that she was launching a shop at midnight (yesterday) I couldn’t wait to pop over to see it for myself.

Moorea Seal ShopJust as one might expect from Moorea, the Moorea Seal shop is filled with beautifully curated, artisan American-made products to swoon over. And even better yet; 7% of all their proceeds are donated to one of 5 wonderful non-profit organizations!

Moorea Seal ShopI can’t wait to see what Moorea and her team will have in store for us in the days and months to come!  Hers is definitely a shop worth bookmarking and checking in on regularly! — SHOP | BLOG

P.S. I Adore You…An Art Fundraiser for Brielle

tea_bear_charity_printHi friends! A couple weeks ago Whitney from P.S. I Adore You got in touch and asked if I would be willing to design and donate an art print for an art fundraiser to support a courageous 12-year old cancer fighter named Brielle. Of course I immediately said “yes, yes, yes” and then started sketching up ideas right away.

Brielle looks like a girl who loves the color blue (me too!), so I used this detail as the inspiration for my illustration: A sweet little tea-loving bear in a polka-dotted blue dress! I hope she will find a spot in your heart and home. My 8×10 art download is just $5 and will only be available for purchase this week (until April 13th)! Every penny earned benefits one very special girl…

Let me tell you a little bit about the beautiful girl with an effervescent spirit that this fundraiser is all about:

meetbrielleIn Sept 2010 Brielle Beus was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. After a courageous year long fight at Primary Children’s, she was cancer free! Then in Nov 2011 a small spot confirmed that her cancer had relapsed and after another year long fight of radiation, chemo, and a second bone marrow transplant she defeated cancer once again. But just this year, on March 21, 2013 Brielle received the bad news that her cancer has returned, and this time her little body can’t continue the fight. There is nothing more the doctors can do and Brielle has decided she is done fighting. She wants to be a little girl, a sister, and a daughter not a chemo patient for the last couple months of her life. Brielle and her family are facing each day with courage and love, and are focusing on making the most out of every moment they have with one another…financial worries should not detract from the time they have together.

So today I am honored to have the opportunity to make a tiny difference in this family’s life, and heartened to know that with the power of our amazing community we can do so much to help lighten at least one burden that they are carrying. Will you join me today in helping Brielle and her family through the purchase of an art download? My print is available exclusively through P.S. I Adore You for only $5! All proceeds will go directly to Brielle and her family.

This art fundraiser also includes $5 art prints from the following generous artists (these links direct to their personal sites so you can show them some love for their kindness): Caravan Shoppe // Fox Bear Designs // French Press Mornings // Handmade Romance // Maypole // I Heart Nap Time // Katy Girl Designs // Kelli Murray / Livy Love Designs // Ohh Dear Lover // The Painted Arrow // Plum Street Prints // Rizzle & Rugee // Roxy Marj // Small Fry Blog // October Ink // Sweet Little Peanut // The Peanut Gallery // BC Prints

I am so grateful for your support friends. Even if you aren’t able to make an art purchase, I would still love your help in spreading the word about this fundraiser via social media. We are using the hashtag #BRIELLELOVE . Thank you for being a part of something beautiful today! xox Ez


All prints are available this week only through P.S. I Adore You.
