IHOD x Social Print Studio Print Packs for Charity

For those of you who follow along on instagram, you have seen sneak previews of the IHOD x Social Print Studio collaboration. Today is the day I finally get to share the full result along with reveal the purpose behind these print packs!

IHOD} Black and White Print Packs

One of Gabe’s best friends, Jim Campbell went out for a mission trip to Ecuador a few years ago to visit a site where missionaries were giving children from broken families and difficult financial situations clean water, food, clothing, and health care. Funds were running low and he knew there was a great need.  He came back to his job in NYC with a conviction to do more, which is when he started Mission Santa Maria, and has moved mountains with this organization since! He is actually over there as we speak and sharing pics on their brand new instagram account.

My son Gabriel started thriving when he started school this year. So much excitement and zeal for life! I mean the boy practically jumps out of bed. He is so proud when his teacher tells him he is doing a good job or he gets to help a friend. He will give me the full report about the letter of the week too. My hope is to give that same enthusiasm for life to some of these children whose lives are looking bleak and hopeless. A good environment, motivation to learn, and someone telling them they are valued enough to teach and spend time with can make all the difference in a child’s spirit. It opens the future wide open!

Gabe and I always talk about how we wish we could physically go and help Jim with his work there, and since that isn’t an option at this time in our life, the next best thing we can do is to help get the funds over there! They do a fantastic job sending photo updates through their monthly newsletter too. 

So here is the breakdown!

  • This print pack is a series of black and white 4×4 inch photos all taken by iphone, edited in VSCO, and printed through Social Print Studio (who so graciously agreed to this project!). 
  • 1 Print pack at $15 = 1 month of education for a child at Mission Santa Maria. 100% of the proceeds go directly to this cause.
  • Your print pack will come with the 5 black and white prints and wrapped in twine. I will be hand writing one of my favorite quotes and a note along with to thank you. The first 20 orders will get a surprise 6th print;)

You can purchase directly here through paypal!

I humbly ask you help spread the word about these print packs! A share on facebook, instagram, pinterest, twitter, email….either would be a great help! My goal is to raise enough money to send 5 children to school for a year, and I would so appreciate it!

Much love, Anna

“May light always surround you; Hope kindle and rebound you. May your hurts turn to healing; Heart embrace feeling. May wounds become wisdom; Every kindness a prism. May laughter infect you; Your passion resurrect you. May goodness inspire your deepest desires. Through all that you reach for, May your arms never tire.” -D. Simone

How was your Easter??
As seemingly appropriate, we had a dark and rainy Good Friday and the most beautiful Easter sunny Sunday. Gabe and I really loved witnessing our kids on Easter morning, enjoying each other, and celebrating the Risen King! I could right a whole post on Easter ponderings, but for now…

I got a new gig! Was asked to be a style contributor for the new eHow.com style blog! So honored, and cannot wait to share some of the fun projects we have planned.

You can read my debut post here, and my very first contribution: How to Pack Light: 12 Pieces, 8 Outfits :) Hope you enjoy! (All clothing sources on the eHow post!)

It seems to be a month of debuts, announcements, and introductions! Got a few more to share this week so come back tomorrow and Wednesday:)

The florals by Juli Vaughn at the Atlanta Brand Merket workshop were so beautiful that I felt like they needed their own post:)

Juli came up with mini styling packages for each attendee so that we could all play around during the photography and iphone photography portion of the workshop. Such a cool detail and I am so grateful to her for going the extra mile.

These table centerpieces were such a welcome note to March. We were all in awe over the vibrant arrangements. So perfectly done. I knew if I let Juli do her thing she would come up with something spectacular. She is the bees knees and I highly recommend her for any floral and event design needs you have! She really went above and beyond what I was hoping for. The copper floral tape wall was such a fun element. And her studio? To die for.

We were lucky to be able to use Blue Eyed Yonder’s stunning wood table and chairs for this event. Have you seen the rest of their rentals?? Krista and her husband travel the south to find the coolest pieces for their collection and the rest they hand make! So cool.

The Raleigh workshop is already next weekend with NYC, and L.A. soon to follow. Whew! It is going to be quite a ride!
