Flossieolivedesigns began as a curiosity and a desire to do something meaningful with my surroundings and turn “scrap” into functional art. I have moved through various mediums throughout my life with the mingling of art, nature and function remaining constant. A few years ago I picked up a hobby pyrography tool at a craft store. I fell in love with the art form. Burning an image into wood added a different and much needed element to my art. It felt cleansing and spiritual, old and significant compared to what I had done previously. Slowly I have cultivated this skill and developed a style that is morphing into more elaborate wood projects and metal.
Jo Lundberg’s art is about creative alchemy: creating something beautiful, meaningful and sustainable, appealing to customer’s aesthetic tastes and ethics. Using salvaged and up-cycled wood pieces that are sourced from carpenters and arborists as a substrate, she uses the natural beauty of the wood grain as part of the composition painting surreal sea-scapes. Inspired by the natural world, and our relationship to it, the pieces often incorporate the human figure with undercurrents of psychology and the human condition bisect. Her art speaks to the human condition - many pieces are influenced and inspired by her personal experiences, many of which are universal to all of us.
Our love affair with pozole (the hearty Mexican soup of chiles and hominy) began with time spent in Mexico and family ties in Arizona. Proudly made in Portland, OR, Pozole to the People is a vegan-friendly, gluten-free soup starter that makes it possible to get dinner on the table in minutes rather than hovering over a hot simmering pot for hours. Organic whole corn kernels, or hominy, are soaked in lime and simmered for hours, then slow cooked with a variety of organic chiles and spices for remarkable depth of flavor. Simply add your own vegetables, chicken, seafood or meat substitute. Pozole to the People is a minority-owned business based in Portland, OR.
Speaks With Eagles Medicinal Herbs & Spices makes "Cool Your Joints" spice blend for people and "Cool Their Joints" spice blend for dogs. Their spice blend can help anyone who suffers from inflammation. Speaks With Eagles was created by Tina Thompson after she had a shoulder injury that resulted in chronic inflammation. As a single mom, Tina has been working with the healing power of herbs for many years to make home remedies. Her recipe is based on years of experience and research to find the right blend that would create synergy and be more beneficial than taking individual spices in capsule form. Tina is working with veterans and hopes to be able to establish a relationship with both the Veterans Association and National Football League to study the health benefits of her product on healing traumatic injuries.
