Several months ago I created several custom postcard and greeting card designs for a Trades of Hope Compassionate Entrepreneur, Shelby Black-Couch. She ordered these to give as gifts to her team at their Empower conference.

When Shelby reached out to me, I was super excited to help with this project for a lot of reasons. Trades of Hope has some really beautiful products and not only that but they work with women artisans around the world to provide a better wage, hope and opening up opportunities that might not otherwise be available to them. I am all about supporting other women entrepreneurs and love supporting fair trade products.

So many women live in poverty, not because they lack abilities, but because they lack opportunity. We started Trades of Hope to give women that opportunity for a better life. Each woman has a story, and with Trades of Hope’s help, their story has changed from pain and struggle to a story of hope! 

Trades of Hope, Our Story

I’ve known Shelby since my college days and she is a lovely person and artist herself.

I’m really proud of these custom postcards designed for Shelby and her team for their conference. Each of the designs backgrounds is hand painted and printed on 100% recycled paper.

Keep up the amazing work ladies and thanks for letting me be a part of what you’re doing!
