Style your friends, Change the world

Y'all. This week I had my Noonday launch party and it was so much fun! Twenty of my sweet friends came over to celebrate the start of my new business and to learn more about Noonday. 

It was so fun to see my friends gush over the Noonday pieces and to know that their purchases are creating opportunity all over the world. 
 The party wouldn't have happened without these three! They helped me pull everything together in the last few minutes!

The bone carved leaf earrings were one of my best sellers.  These earrings are made by an artisan co-op in India that helps low-income artisans move towards economic self-sufficiency. 

The beaded statement bracelet (above) and embira seed bracelet (below) are both made by the artisan group in Uganda, African style. African Style is run by Jalia and David - a married couple who love God and love people. They have a passion to care for the widow and the oppressed by teaching them a skill that can provide a sustainable income and disciplining them in God's word. The wooden trays are made in Guatemala. 

 And last, but not least. I think this bag might just be my favorite. My catch all bag was on back order for a while. It just came in last week and I am loving it. 
I am so thankful for all my friends who have shared in my Noonday excitement.  It is so fun to start this new chapter, and to do it surrounded by my sweet friends!
