2020 New Year's Resolutions

2020 New Year's Resolutions

We are bidding a bittersweet farewell to 2019, but can't wait to kick off this new year! We wanted to share a few goals we have as a company, then a few from each of us here at Mae Woven so you can get the chance to know us all better! 

COMPANY RESOLUTIONS:

This year, we plan to immerse ourselves in our community more. Whether it be participating in more pop-ups, volunteering or collaborating with local, small businesses – we plan to do it all! We also hope to arrange more fundraising opportunities and give back to those in need on a larger scale this year. We are excited to grow as a company and learn from the hurdles we know we will endure. 

Meet Emmy (@ameliahannah), the owner!

Happy 2020! I LOVE a fresh new year and chance to reflect. My word for this year is mindfulness. I will be especially mindful of how I prioritize my time, my environment, and what I put into my body. I hope to be more in tune with my family and their needs... as well as a support to my community as well.

 2019 was a year of growth. It was challenging in a lot of ways but I am coming out of it proud of the person I am becoming and so thrilled for what 2020 will bring! I am so grateful for the support I feel from all of you and my incredible team.  

Meet Megan (@megjensen), our Office Manager! 

For me, 2019 was a year full of adventure, growth and love. Reflecting on the past year is always bittersweet for me – Sad it's over, but excited for what's to come. So thankful for all that was learned and accomplished.

This year, I hope to spend more quality time with the ones I love – especially since my parents and siblings are moving to Colorado come summer! I also hope to learn a new hobby (fingers crossed that THIS is my year to become a more regular cook). Lastly, I hope to be more intentional in all my doing. Whether it be friendships, my marriage, purchases and more. I have a good feeling about 2020! Bring it on!

Meet Emme (@emmenelson), our Graphic Designer! 

2019 was a year full of changes: graduating with a degree in Design, getting engaged to my best friend {!!!}, moving into our first home, and joining the Mae Woven team! In 2020, I am looking forward to new experiences and setting a few intentions to guide my year. I hope to read daily {with a lofty goal of reading 40 books in 2020}, run a half marathon, and slow down to create space for the things I love {travel, through hiking, cooking, and painting}. Here's to 2020!

Meet Tani (@tnsmom), our Production Manager! 

My new years resolutions... As you can see, adventure and spending time with family bring me joy! (The tortoise was 112 years old!). My 2020 goals include continuing to study Spanish, visiting some of our international partners, and sourcing new textiles which meet and exceed our company values. Using my time to serve in the community here locally will be a priority also. It’s glamorous to serve abroad but our local underserved populations need us also.. and it’s right in front of us!

We are so thankful for all of the love and support we were shown in 2019! All thanks to YOU. We hope you have a year full of laughter, love and growth. Wishing you safety, health and happiness in 2020! HAPPY NEW YEAR! 

Shopping Small this Holiday Season

Shopping Small this Holiday Season

As a small business, we are filled with gratitude that so many of you choose to shop small during the holiday season. With all the hustling and bustling that comes with the holidays, we find it so tempting to shop at larger retailers that provide a "one stop shop" for everyone on your list. But, as a female-run, small-business team, we are committing to supporting other small or local businesses this holiday season.

WHY SHOP SMALL? 

Shopping small is a great way to connect with members of your local community! In addition to small online shops, there are holiday art markets, small brick and mortar shops, and local artisans that provide meaningful gifts for anyone on your list. 

THE NUTS AND BOLTS 

Not only does shopping small make you feel good, it is good for your local economy and directly benefits your neighborhood, city, or town! When you purchase from a local business, the sales tax stays in your community which puts money towards roads and public schools. When you purchase from a small business, your money goes to create jobs, fund creativity and reinforce entrepreneurship!

SHOPPING SMALL GUIDE 

Every community has a unique selection of small businesses ranging from local coffee roasters to small book stores and artisan boutiques to local plant shops. With so many options, finding the perfect gift is a fun way to explore your city! We've included a couple of ideas to get you started:

 

No. 1

We all know how stressful the holidays can be. Treat your friends with relaxation essentials from an artisan boutique! Bath salts, incense and natural face masks make the perfect gift! {Bonus: include some fresh eucalyptus from your local market to add a touch of greenery.}

No. 2

With the days getting shorter and the temperatures dropping, the holidays are a perfect time to slow down and cuddle up. Make a holiday basket for friends or family with a book from a local book seller, a cozy handmade throw, and a bag of your favorite locally roasted coffee or tea. {Bonus: include a deck of cards or your favorite holiday movie so the whole family can enjoy.}

No. 3

Don't forget about your furry family members! Treat them to a unique toy, a locally made biscuit, or a handmade bed from a small shop. {Bonus: pick up ingredients from your local market and make homemade pet biscuits.}

No. 4

As the year comes to a close, we love to thank the people in our lives that often get overlooked. Pick up pastries from your local bakery and attach a handwritten note thanking your mailman, teachers, or crossing guards. {Bonus: include some hand-warmers to keep them warm on their route!}

 

We hope you have a wonderful holiday season! Don't forget to shop small!

Holiday Styling Tips

Holiday Styling Tips

Hosting season is upon us which can only mean one thing... It's finally the best time of the year! Holiday festivities are in full swing around here. To kick off this amazing season, we have put together a few styling tips to get you in the holiday spirit! 

LESS IS MORE

We love pairing more neutral fabrics (such as Linen, Moroccan Woolor Thai) with any of our textured pillows (Kilim, Mud Cloth, Baule)... You get the picture!

PICK A FEW SIZES

Luckily, our pillows come in all shapes and sizes. On most couches, benches or beds, pillows of different sizes can make furniture appear larger than it is. It also will give the final look more diversity.

WHITE & BLACK MUD CLOTH ARE A MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN

You heard it here first, folks. We will never, ever get over our love for this mix. It's a perfect combination for the more minimal heart - and they seamlessly blend with ANY holiday decor. Win win! 

BAGS & BASKETS COMPLETE ANY ROOM

Our bags and baskets are the prettiest toy haven/blanket holder you could ever ask for. There are so many ways to use your bags & baskets. When we are not carrying them around full of day-to-day objects, we are typically using them to hide the less pretty things that come with being a homeowner/parent.

ADD A VINTAGE TOUCH

Our rugs from Turkey are one-of-a-kind... and it doesn't get much better than that! Still on the fence? This photo won't help... *heart eyes* SOLD!

SPRUCE UP YOUR KITCHEN & BATHROOM

Make guests feel right at home. Our Turkish & Cotton towels bring a cozy feeling into any space. They are soft, absorbent and beautiful. Hang them nicely on a rack or fold them on your countertop. 

We hope you have a wonderful hosting season! Don't forget to treat yourself, too.
