Say Hello to my Little Friends - January Edition >>>

I started out just wanting to tell a few people who were close to me how grateful I was they had helped me to just keep going through a very difficult time. They held my hand and kept reminding me that with some things in this life, the only way out is through. They reminded me that no matter what was happening, we could get through it together. There wasn’t anything I could give them to symbolize how vitally important their support was during that time, and so the first creative seeds of Parachute Promise were born. 

But this isn’t about a product, this is about an idea. It's a representation of something really big and very difficult to articulate. In simple terms, it's an expression of gratitude for people who have had an impact on your life, but it’s bigger than that. At its core is something that allows people to connect on the deepest level to the most meaningful people in their lives. It asks the question, Who matters in your life? And why? And it encourages you to risk telling those people how much they mean to you. Parachute Promise is a vehicle that allows that to happen. 

Hey there, I'm Elisabeth from Manic Mrs. Stone.  I am a [super] young mama to 2 little goddess girls and am happily married to my BFF.  I blog about my offbeat adventures in "hippie" life and motherhood - so some pretty regular topics are natural living & mothering, daily musings, creativity & inspiration, vegan food, and sustainable living.

 Im a Passionate S.F. Bay Area girl who runs a cute small business. I create art with my hands, in the form of crochet accessories & hand sewn clothes, that are unique, eclectic and hippie inspired.

Hello! I'm Mary, the creatress of all the wearable art you will find in my shop, Perpetual Sunshine Creations. Hemp is my media of choice, with accents of natural stones and original knot work designs. I am a designer, architect, lover and artist. I've found that my most inspired pieces are born naturally by letting them flow through me, which often surprise me in the end. I hope you enjoy!

Moorea is 25 years old, a lover of nature, chevrons, triangles, metals, bears, juice drinks, this really tall boy she knows, and is naked without a gaudy ring or two on her fingers. You can often find her scavenging through the city and countryside in search of something unique and inspiring, from the mixture of nature's colors, to the sparking lights of the city. She spends most of her time in Seattle, so if you see her, don't be afraid to say hello! She loves new friends.

Insightful readings, pretty things, and a hint of a modern outlaw on the mend. I roll with my intuition, I dig my heels deep into the earth. Let's just say I know a soul who's lost when I see one, and it's my soul's calling to herd 'em up.

We think personal style is just another form of self-expression, and we make shoes for creative girls who can put together a look with effortless originality. Blowfish takes a break from the ordinary and a cue from the past. There’s something unexpected in every shoe we create, just as there’s something unexpected about every girl who wears them.

I have always enjoyed creating! As an artist I look for items to be added to my jewelry that can catch the light, provoke interest or make you smile. Mainly my inspiration comes through nature. My favorite part of making jewelry is spending time with my daughter. She is usually in my studio while I am creating, telling me about her day, or giving her input on designs.
