Helping Single Mothers through supporting Mama Artisans

February 8, 2016

The struggle of the young mom who is alone on her parenting journey is near and dear to my heart. I’ve partnered for a good cause with Heather from Mama Knows Honey Child and the artisan whimsical children’s products shop on testy called Honey Child Forest or on instragram, too, Honey Child Forest. She felts, makes amazing banners, hand lettered art, and so much more (including custom family portraits!). We met at the Edel conference in 2014 and I thought, this is my kind of girlfriend! Lately we’ve been working together over at the instagram popup weekly shop of many mama artisans called Zelie & Co. For the shop’s weekly sale tomorrow, we’re changing things up and doing an auction-style sale with ALL the proceeds going to charity! {My girlfriend Jenny is telling you about my gift set offering–leggings, bib, burp cloth, plush blanket–all organic!} My charity of choice is the Philomela House here in Saint Paul. They provide housing for homeless expecting mothers and the support they need along their journey. A friend’s mother (since deceased) founded it and we pray for those mamas every night! Heather’s offering a super sweet bunch of goods valued over $100!! Needlefelted heart garland – 3 feet long Needlefelted/embroidered wool felt fawn crown Totus Tuus felt flower and wood sign A rustic “Give Me Jesus” banner And two Fox and Gnome beeswax candles GET OVER THERE tomorrow and BID, friends!
