OK. We’re almost a month in to 2015. Its had its ups and its down. I’m going strong. I’m still thinking it’s gonna be a good year. A really good year.
I was thinking yesterday about how my life is FULL of crazy artistic and talented People. Seriously. Crazy talented…and there are so many of them! I HAD to share with you some of my favorite things and they just so happened to be created/run/founded by some of my favorite People! True story. OK. Here’s my list from 2014!
Stacy’s Favorite Things
#1.) Worthwhile Wear ~ An organization created to actively fight against modern day human slavery and sex trafficking. Wow! 1st of all, did you know those things are still real and exist in crazy large numbers? Well, my Friends Dan and Steph did and they’ve put their lives full force into actually doing something about it! You can find out so much more about them via their website: http://www.worthwhilewear.org

So, clearly they’re #1 on my list…because they’re fighting to save and change lives!
#2.) Lucent Lamp Works
I met Brad almost 2 years ago when I did Family pictures for him and his precious Family. Not too long after, he contacted me to begin photographing his custom/handmade lights! I wasn’t too sure what to expect…but to say I love every single piece he sells, is no lie. These Lights are creative, fun, unique and so beautiful! If you or anyone you know needs gorgeous handmade lighting…he’s your guy!

3.) Planet Smoothie ~ Doylestown
One of my closest and dearest Friends in the whole world has a heart for others, and a heart to help others be healthy and strong! Over a decade ago, she choose to go out on a limb and start a Planet Smoothie Franchise, right here locally, in Doylestown, PA. Today is is a thriving business and has led her to her continued purpose of helping others loves who God created them to be and to help them get healthy, fit and and strong along the way! I love her heart and her passion for helping people reach their full potential! Have you ever struggled with your weight? Health? I’m pretty sure about 99% of Americans do or have…so her battle is a very valid and real one. If you need a champion, a supporter, or someone to help you find the tools you need to finally overcome! She’s your gal!

4.) Anca Pe’elma
Andrea was one of the 1st Friends I made when we moved to Pennsylvania 8 years ago. She’s also one of the most artistic, unique, and amazingly talented people I know! Her work is stunning and all handmade! From headbands, bracelets, to wreathes and crowns. It is all beautiful!
You can find more of her amazing creations on her website. http://ancapeelma.com

5.) Amerikan Made Prints
Crazy cool stuff here people. I met Jen almost 3 years ago at a Church group. She’s quiet. But from day one I knew she was busting with creativity and artistic flare. She’s a great photographer, super creative, and talented artist! This screen print company was started by her and her husband. They’re running a Kickstarter Campaign right now to get their business going again…and I can wait to see where it takes them. I have every intention of getting one of their original posters in my own home soon!
