This past week we’ve been trecking around Oregon, visiting some of our fave shops and local ladies with Element Eden Advocate and inspirational speaker – Amy Purdy!
Amy inspired all by telling her life changing story and where her path has led her to today, from ranking top in World Adaptive snowboarding, to collabing with us on the Live Learn Grow (LLG) Collection.
Both trunk shows at Vanilla Urban Threads in Bend and Urban Laundry in Corvallis were a blast for us and our new friends. We were stoked to be out of the office, hanging, crafting, and styling the upcoming Spring 2013 line with the local girls. Here’s some shots of the crew in action.
Amy Purdy getting crafty with us! – super cute DIY gift soap with recycled packaging.
Oregon girls strut their stuff in a styling competition – sporting the Summer 2013 line for prizes!
And our favorite Holloway beanie from the LLG Collection, filled with goodies for all!!!!
Everyone posted some rad painting, photo, street art, and still life shots… But we had to pick just one of you little creatornators as the proud winner of a $500 shopping spree with Element Eden.
Proud to announce Katie Mclean, 21 year old graduate of Otis college of Art and Design, as our Create and Cultivate contest winner. She posted multiple masterpieces, featuring her eclectic,sensual, and naturally captivating vision through painting. We’re truly blown away and inspired by your beautiful style.
The extent of her work wanders much farther than paintings – scope her stuff on http://gypsyeye.com/ and @gypseye805
Can’t wait to see where your wanderings take you Katie and on behalf of the Element Eden family thanks for getting us inspire-wired!
Gearing up for two incredible days in Oregon with Element Advocate Amy Purdy!
Join us Tuesday in Corvallis and Wednesday in Bend to meet Amy in person and hear her incredible story… if that isn’t enough, we’ll also be hosting a styling competition, DIY craft and be handing out goody bags for all!
For all our friends unable to attend, be sure to stay tuned on our Instagram (@ElementEden)… we will definitely be clogging the feed ;D
Create and Cultivate is essentially pinterest on crack…. the team over at No Subject LA partners up with Foam Magazine and some of the lead influencers in the creative realm, providing a weekend to inspire, inform and support future innovation.
The two day getaway was hosted at none other than the uber-hip Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, and we had the pleasure of teaming up as a co-sponsor of this years event! While we could write a detailed essay on all we loved, learned and obsessed over during the weekend, we’ll save you the long read and sum it up as this…
-Brand strategist, Jasmine, taught the art of personal branding in a social media world
-Yours truly (our team at Element) gave a workshop on creating macrame plant hangers and jazzing them up with feathers, beads and braided knots
Tune in live to hear Amy’s inspiring story and how loosing her legs unexpectedly at age 19 has only further helped her understand the power of resilience.
Amy now holds a world class title in Adaptive snowboarding and has moved on to start non-profit Adaptive Action Sports, encouraging others with permanent physical disabilities to also remain active in action sports.
When Element Advocate Amy Purdy told us that she was going to be embarking on an adventure of a lifetime (which we later found out was “The Amazing Race”),we were in the midst of designing her newest LLG Collection. So when we heard the news, Amy and the Eden Designers scrambled to make magic happen, and alas, our very own amazing race had begun.
After countless cups of coffee, and days blending into nights, it all came together, and just in the knick of time… Amy was heading out the door to compete, half-way around the world, in… China?! What?! Needless to say, we are on the edge of our seats, and cheering her on. Amy is an inspiration, and with her story of endurance and strength, she truly knows how to overcome any obstacle.
“Get outside, smell the trees, and take in the fresh air…” – Amy Purdy, Element Eden Advocate
Discovered the beautiful works of Daisy Campbell on our Facebook page and had to further share!
We love the meticulous detail she puts in with each line… creating a mix of strength and boldness while simultaneously evoking delicate movement!
Take a peek at more of her work HERE! We love when our paths cross with new artists… incredible how much inspiration this world has to hold!
“It’s always been my passion to perform on stage and to connect with people through the healing power of performing arts.” -Mataji Booker
Only 31 hours left to take part in helping our girl Mataji record her first album, Vertical Love. Describing her beats as acoustic folk-soul, Mataji has a beautiful sound that get’s your body moving and all the while slows you down to enjoy this life we’re living!
Inspired by our mothers in the decades of homemade craft and a love for all things of nature, Element will be teaching the art of macramé plant hangers… Sounds so chic, but let’s be honest, you just need to know how to tie a knot!
Because we love you, use the promo code ELEMENT for $75 off. Hope you can join us!
There’s nothing better than the wind on your skin (we always sleep with the windows open and drive with the car windows cracked), which is why we love early fall camp-outs when we can still show a little skin. Snip out the shoulders of this Element sweatshirt and you’ll feel the breeze but still fend off the chill.
This has to the be the easiest DIY ever! Make a mark on your sweatshirt sleeve where the edge of your shoulder is (feel for the end of your collarbone), and another mark about halfway down your upper arm.
Cut a straight line from the first dot to the second. Cut a half-oval on either side of your line and you’re done! Save the scraps for future projects.
