Monroe Stil Announcement
I wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be leaving for vacation May 27th and will return June 3rd. During this time you are welcome to place orders, however, they will not be filled until I get back home. That being said, I have a few new shipments coming in this week and I plan to post them before I leave....hopefully.
Coming Soon to Monroe Stil
Many have already figured out that I am very proud of where I come from. Sometimes it's almost impossible to describe to people just how great Monroe County is. The list is just too long, so I let them see for themselves with a weekend visit. They are quick to understand what I had been telling them about as they take in the friendly atmosphere of any door they walk through.
To give outsiders a taste of what Monroe County is all about, Monroe Stil is working to team up with local artists. Soon to be showcased online are Ashley Bivins's MamaMade and Ashley Villarreal's VillarrealDesigns.
MamaMade features custom wine glasses, cups, and graphic tees. Life with a toddler is like a rollercoaster and there is never a shortage of craziness. "Being a mom has taught me to expect the unexpected. I find myself saying and hearing things that someone without kids would never be able to understand", says Ashley. This is just what MamaMade's items reflect and many moms will be able to resinate.
Ashley Villarreal is another Monroe County artist and a former classmate of mine. It's always interesting to see the people you grew up with grow into different adults. After graduating from Webster University with a Bachelor's in Marketing, Ashley took time to travel and live abroad. VillarrealDesigns will feature custom made graphic tees with her own abstract art that reflects the scenery she experienced during her travels in places such as Indonesia, Thailand, and Cambodia. Also important to Ashley, is keeping the environment in mind while producing her art. Environmentally friendly ink will be used to print her art on t-shirts from Bella + Canvas, which are made in the USA, eco-friendly manufactured, and 100% no sweatshops.
Keep an eye out on Facebook and Instagram for updates on when these two talented artists will be featured online. Their products will also be showcased at pop-up events. Please let me know if you have any questions or would like to learn more about both Ashleys.
