Introducing Strawberry Popcorn by Seed of Hope

Strawberry Popcorn by Seed of Hope

Strawberry Popcorn by Seed of Hope

Hank and Tami Brackman are popcorn growers and suppliers in North Adams Michigan. They are a product with a cause, planting seeds of hope. As a survivor of domestic violence, Tami is determined to raise awareness and educate others. Coupled with Hank’s love for farming and antique farm equipment, Seed of Hope Strawberry Popcorn took root. They set out to plant a “Seed of Hope” for others who have been affected by domestic violence and Strawberry Popcorn has given them a platform to fulfill that vision. Strawberry Popcorn has been a tradition in the Brackman family for over 35 years and they are excited to share it with their community for such a great cause.
Driven by a love for antique tractors and a desire to rekindle the heart of what farming is all about, Farming with 1950’s farm equipment became part of the dream. They take pride in preserving the land that is used and growing a wholesome, healthy snack for you to enjoy. Strawberry Popcorn is one of the healthiest, tastiest snack foods available. It has 350 more antioxidants than white or yellow popcorn. When popped the kernels are small white and crunchy with no hard hulls. Unlike what you might guess from the name, Strawberry Popcorn does not taste like strawberries! The name comes from the small red ears which resemble strawberries. Pesticides and insecticides are not used and the popcorn is packaged all by hand. A purple ribbon is placed on the Seed of Hope logo as an awareness campaign against Domestic Violence. We invite you to try the Seed of Hope Strawberry Popcorn, available in 1 pound resealable packages.

Introducing Rebel Spirit Empowerment Apparel and Decor

Rebel Spirit Empowerment from Within

Rebel Spirit Empowerment from Within

Rebel Spirit is a small company in Traverse City Michigan with a big mission of empowering people. Every affirmation is meant to empower, and that is felt and seen in every design. Some of the designs on the shirts and pillows include I AM, Believe in Yourself, fearLESS, Inner Beauty, Unapologetically Me, and more. A personal daily mantra of Rebel Spirit for Empowerment from Within is: Breathe. Believe In Yourself. Repeat. You’ve Got This.
It occurred to Samantha Hoffman, owner of Rebel Spirit, while scribbling an affirmation onto a sticky note, that soon her world would be covered with little yellow squares. But, she needed those affirmations. She needed the reminders. Life gets busy and chaotic and these little words of empowerment helped center Samantha. She thought, how nice if the sticky notes were simply stuck to me. And that is how this little empowerment affirmation company started. From there, her and her daughter started designing wearable affirmations that would help remind us of our own purpose, power, and potential.
In all that they do, in every design they make, Rebel Spirit wants to help women to know that they are enough. And to rebel against the notion that they’re not. They want everyone to love who they are. To look upon themselves with a whole lot less judgement and a whole lot more love.
So whether your wearing one of the super soft tops or using one of the pillows, you are displaying those reminders and support to believe in who you are – just as you are.
Rebel Spirit is an empowerment company – 10% of profits go towards organizations that help empower others.

Introducing Ainsley’s Creations Bath & Body Products

Ainsley's Creations Bath & Body Products

Ainsley’s Creations Bath & Body Products

Ainsley’s Creations use only organic or all natural ingredients in all of their products. Currently body butter, lotion, body scrub, lip balm, bath bombs, and soy candles. Stephanie Bryan, owner of Ainsley’s Creations named her business after her 4 year old daughter, Ainsley. She was born with a rare condition which caused her to be born with a duplicated chromosome. Unfortunately it can’t be tied to one specific chromosome so the complexity makes it extremely difficult to treat. Raising money to go towards children’s medical research is a cause that is near and dear to Stephanie’s heart. A portion of every sale goes towards children’s medical research.
Here’s why you should use Ainsley’s Creations products with all natural and organic ingredients:

Benefits of Shea Butter

Moisturizing: The concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in Shea butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for skin. It is often used to remedy dry skin and to help protect the skin’s natural oils.
Skin Smoothing: Shea butter is often used in moisturizers, creams, lotions, and other emulsions for the skin and hair. It is rich in fats that make it an excellent emollient and skin moisturizing agent. It also contains vitamins A and E, which not only keep the skin in optimal health but also protect it from being damaged by the sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation. These components give shea butter a mild sun protection factor (SPF). Vitamin E also soothes dry skin and improves the skin’s elasticity, making this butter a good anti-aging agent.

Benefits of Almond Oil

Sweet almond oil may help protect your skin from the sun’s damaging rays.
Promotes Flawless Skin: Almond oil is mild and has hypoallergenic properties which makes it great for sensitive skin too.
Relieves Psoriasis and Eczema: Another reason almond oil is so good for skin is because it is rich in Vitamin E which is a very effective anti-oxidant. Apply the oil regularly and your skin will combat stress and UV damage with ease.

Benefits of Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is a great skin softener and helps you do away with dry and hard skin conditions
Powerful Moisturizer: Beneficial to restoring dry or flaking skin. Unlike your average moisturizer that contains a lot of water and likely synthetic ingredients, coconut oil helps to strengthen skin tissue more deeply and eliminate dead skin cells while absorbing quickly into your skin.
Delay Wrinkles: Because it contains antioxidant Vitamin E, known to protect skin cells from damage over time. The Vitamin E found in coconut oil soothes eczema, sunburn and psoriasis, and its antiviral and anti-fungal benefits even help to treat bug bites.
Avoid Fungal Infection: Coconut oil contains 3 fatty acids – capric acid, lauric acid, and caprylic acid. Each of these acids kill candida, a common cause of fungal infection on your skin.

Benefits of Vitamin E Oil

Provides the skin with necessary moisture as well as antioxidants for intense healing.

Benefits of Cocoa Butter

High in Antioxidants: Antioxidants help fight off free radical damage to the skin. Free radicals can cause skin aging, dark patches, and dull skin. Protecting your skin from free radical damage is a must if you want healthy and younger-looking skin. This skin care ingredient is also anti-inflammatory which makes cocoa butter an anti-aging skin care ingredient as well.
Deep Hydration: Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids and hydrates the skin deeply, making it a wonderful addition to body moisturizers and lip balms. It contains oleic acid, palmitic acid, and stearic acid all of which nourish the skin deeply.
Relieves Skin Irritations: Cocoa butter has been noted to help skin irritations such as eczema and dermatitis.

Benefits of Raw Pure Cane Sugar

A perfect all natural exfollient!

Benefits of Essential Oil Soy Candles

Burn Cleaner: Soy Candles contain no toxins, carcinogens or pollutants which means it’s less likely to trigger allergies. no petrol-carbon soot like you get from petroleum-based paraffin candles.
Longer Lasting: Soy wax burns cooler which means that you can enjoy your soy wax candle for generally 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle.
Lasting Aroma: Infused with the highest amount of essential oil to ensure long lasting aromas.

Michigan in Paisley by Mel Blohm

Michigan in Paisley by Mel Blohm

Michigan in Paisley by Mel Blohm

Mel Blohm was trained as a fine artist at Grand Valley State University and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. From Grand Rapids Michigan, Mel’s passion for art and design was handed down from his parents, who were very creative individuals. They were crucial in the development of his creativity. Mel Blohm said, “When I was a kid my parents went out of their way to make sure I was exposed to a variety of different experiences including trips out East, hunting & fishing, art museums, and much more.” His parents were very supportive of anything he wanted to try. They encouraged him to explore the world around him, and treat others the way he would want to be treated.
Ever since Mel was a kid he would doodle and play with his light table while tracing images of Disney characters. His parents would take me to all sorts of craft shows and art galleries. When he started to grow older, his dream was to become a famous artist like his idols (Dali, Picasso, Warhol, and Frank Lloyd Wright). Several years ago Mel decided to focus on what he loved, which was drawing and doodling. During that time, he was also helping his wife plan their wedding. She wanted him to design their wedding invitations and he ended up creating some beautiful gold metallic paisley letters.
Over the past few years, Mel Blohm has been interested in the ways people look at art. While pursuing this idea, he began to push the bounds of what paisley patterns can create. He found that leading a viewer into the composition with the organic shapes that the paisley patterns create allows the viewer to be captured in the soothing, swirling effect. This method of composition intentionally leads each viewer to follow a similar path as they enjoy the piece.
