Summer Soulstice Line Launch

ProductsRenee Beamer
 

When I began my creative business, I worked on a Winter Soulstice line in preparation for the Christmas season always knowing that the sweetness of producing a summer line would be right around the corner. So, when January came, I began seeking inspiration and dreaming of items to include in the new line. And now that the summer season is upon us, I am so excited to see the new inventory materialize in my first show of 2019!

This Mother’s Day weekend marks the launch of my Summer Soulstice Line at the Hilton Art Walk! The excitement for me builds as I anticipate sharing home decor, books, and journals with show attendees.

Sometimes a little help is needed picking out the right gift for Mom, and that is why I put together a very special basket of home decor. I’m calling it Mom’s Market Haul, and it includes four handcrafted home goods.

Leading up to the launch weekend, I invited Instagram followers to get in on the excitement through a series of weekly giveaways I called 3 Fun Fridays. It started with a signed copy of You Are More Than You Know, was followed by a one-of-a-kind Loved Leather Bracelet, and finished with a wonderful trio of Summer Soulstice Candles.

Yesterday I loaded the car, and now I prepare to go set up in Hilton Village. It’s hard to imagine how the line will be received… Will every Driftwood Sailboat find a new home? Will people fall in love with the Summer Soulstice Candle fragrance? There’s definitely a nervous excitement within!

I’ll be sure to update post show! Hopefully I’ll remember to get lots of pictures throughout the event! If you’re local, I’d love for you to stop in and say hello!

Handcrafted Driftwood Sailboat Modern Wreath

ProductsRenee BeamerComment

I know little about sailing, but my mind romanticizes what it must be like to have the wind directing a vessel on open waters. When I study from afar sailboats out on the bay, I only see what my imagination conceives as a beautiful escape. I understand intense labor accompanies sailing, yet I’m simply choosing to focus on the optimal experience: wind is steady, waters are calm, and everyone can sit back and catch the sunset.

Who is staring at the sea is already sailing a little.

The Driftwood Sailboat Modern Wreath captures the idyllic calm of a day at sea. My handcrafted Driftwood Sailboat hangs effortlessly in the center of the wreath, adding that simple touch of summer’s goodness to the home.


A little history on this product design: a couple of years after a major hurricane hit our coast, I scored a large driftwood collection at my neighborhood beach and began looking for inspiration on how to utilize it. I decided upon the sailboat design and fell in love with each completed item. I must have made about sixty or seventy that first season, and I gifted one to each guest at our Christmas Open House. My personal collection still adorns the Christmas tree today.

While I was in the process of creating the Driftwood Sailboat to use as ornaments, my husband, Jon, was impressed with the design and encouraged me to consider selling them. He saw the potential of my craft. I brushed off his compliment, and didn’t give it anymore thought until December 29, 2017. I had what I call a divine download- God gave me the vision of an entire Winter Soulstice Product Line, all handcrafted and including my beloved sailboats.

 

Fast forward a decade or more beyond that first season of creatively utilizing my beach haul, and I am a business owner setting up for local markets and watching shoppers delight in the Driftwood Sailboat. The ornament version was a success, as my sweet man predicted. For the Summer Soulstice Line, I’ve included a tabletop Driftwood Sailboat as an option for my shoppers.

The first day of spring brings with it a season of joyful anticipation for summer brides. I’ve hosted a shower in recent years, and I know the desire to create a themed decor that will make the celebrated woman and her guests feel very special.

If you’ve fallen head over heels for the bohemian style, my Summer Soulstice Line is the perfect find for party accents and gifts.

I suggest starting with a Turkish Hand Towel as your oversized napkin for each guest.

Finish the look with a one-of-a-kind Summer Soulstice Wall Hanging. Let your bride carry it home along with her other gifts and always remember the day she was celebrated by her friends and family.

New Product Sneak Peek!

Why is it about green, gold and white that make for such a compelling display? Perhaps it’s the hope of summer and the colors that accompany it!

The Summer Soulstice Line is in production and bringing the minimalistic touch to interiors where ease and simplicity are the rule. We suggest hanging the Oyster Modern Wreath on an interior door such as a barn door where she will pop!
