Wednesday, April 10, 2013

{shop :: Facebook :: Twitter}

One of the perks of being a part of The Bright Side Project is the opportunity to get to know some of the most amazing artists and creators out there. I am constantly inspired by the people who partner with us here to bring you sunshine and I wonder sometimes if maybe I have the best job in the world. (I already know the answer.) Today’s contributors are a perfect example of what I’m talking about. These are folks who marry their passion with their creativity and the result is our reward.

Brandon and Tabitha Todd are the husband/wife duo behind ToddAh. With their perfectly crafted infinity scarves, onesies, posters, and pillows, ToddAh simply makes great products that are whimsical and graphic and gorgeous. Their mission statement alone had me sold:  “As a company, and as people, we want to make joy appear.” It should also be noted that their business is also a study in philanthropy. This is what I’m talking about, friends. These are the people who flourish.

ToddAh is giving away three scarves to three lucky winners (one each!) One winner will receive the Shabby Cottage Infinity Scarf, one will receive the Blue Chevron Infinity Scarf, and one will receive the Mint Circles Infinity Scarf. To enter to win, please answer the following question no later than Wednesday, April 17th.

    my classmate and good friend whom i’ve known for 8 years (since I was 13). her father passed away suddenly when she was overseas on a mission trip, and even at the funeral she was really calm and at peace, and she also went back to continue serving on her mission trip shortly after the funeral. her unwavering faith in God, the strength and peace that she had in such a troubling time, the love that she poured out for others even in her own time of grief, and the pillar of support that she continues to be for her family inspires me all the time.

    My two besties, Jen and Noel! They’re both so in touch with their hearts and love getting in touch with their emotions through making art and connecting with nature. I always am inspired to live more fully when I’m around them!

    I want my sons (two years old and one in the belly) to look at me and see a good woman. I want them to compare others to the standard that I have set in their minds. I want them to know that the love that their parents have for them can only be paralleled by their partners in life and that they deserve to have an immense amount of love. Setting the bar high makes a big job for me as a mom but it is making me a better and more well rounded person in the mean time.

    Rinny says:

    My best friend (who just also happens to be my cousin); we are very opposite – where I am a social butterfly, she prefers to stay at home; where she has a mind for science and math, I’m more of the creative, free spirit type. Every day we learn something new about each other and ourselves at the same time. She’s my comic relief and shoulder to cry on (even though she’ll cry more than me!). We teach each other to be better women constantly, while still maintaining our girlish humor.

    My daughter is special. I’m learning each day how is the way to be a mother, It’s not easy, sometimes It’s so hard, but I’m very proud of it. I love to be a mother. I love my daughter, my family. The nature inspires me too

    Anne L M says:

    My daughter, she is the most loving and giving 16 year old ever. She defies the stereotype of self involved teenagers. She cares so much for her friends and family and would sacrifice anything for them and never asks for anything in return. She loves fully and deeply forgives easily ( a trait I do not have, although I aspire to it) and enjoys each moment. Oh and her favorite accessory is an infinity scarf 🙂

    I just adore the Shabby Cottage Scarf! I am so blessed to have many people in my life who provide me with of all of these things. My friends and family have built up the person that I am today with all of their encouragement, their love, their strength and their weaknesses. My life is the accumulation of all of the moments I have experienced with my loved ones. I will forever be thankful for each person who has helped build my character.

    My nieces inspire me although I don’t get to see them as often as I would like. They are so precious and innocent and lovely. I love them more than anything.

    Syd says:

    I don’t want to be better, love better, or do better for anyone else other than the One who created me. He shows me the way and loves me so unconditionally it’s hard to handle sometimes. And because of this love and unfailing grace that has been given to me, it inspires me to live that way every day, loving everyone better because of it.

    Everyone!  Specifically, my son.   He is great motivation to love, be and live at 110%!

    Live better, love better, be better.  My grandmother and great-aunts inspire me to those things.  They were born, very poor, in rural Oklahoma, and had received little formal education.  In their pre-teens, they made up the “GGAF Club” and taught themselves to sew and tailor clothes, to do fine embroidery, how to style their hair becomingly & fashionably, to have exemplary manners and penmanship, how to flirt and converse with personality and propriety, how to wear makeup, how to appreciate art and beauty.  These three ladies each held themselves to the highest of standards in every area of life (without every judging others by those same standards) and never settled for less than pure love and whole hearted admiration in the men they married.  One married her teenage sweetheart and raised a family in OK. Two found the strength to divorce themselves from violent, abusive alcoholics after  and protect their children, raising them to be better men and women, and finding better “heart-mates”.  One owned and was the hostess of a hotel in CA, the other became a personal shopper & stylist for Nordstrom’s.  All three learned to paint, decorate their homes beautifully, and traveled the world!  Their inner & outer beauty, their innate and learned sense of style, their desire for a better, more beautiful lives, their joy and interest in the world around them inspires me still.  I am honored to be a woman of their family line and attempt to live, love, and exist to their “better” standards, not settling for ordinary or average in myself!

    My grandmother. She got pregnant at 15 and by the time she was 19 she was a single mom to 4 kids (in 1961!!). She earned her GED at night, took computer classes at the local library and started a software company. Now, she’s getting to do all the things she missed as a young adult. She climbed Mt, Kilimanjaro at 64, rode camels into the Mongolian desert at 66, and spent a week in the Mexican jungle with me at 69. She does daily yoga, and takes weekend jogs of several miles. And all this after surviving breast cancer. Her spirit is indomitable.

    My two daughters inspire me every day.  We adopted them from Vietnam and from Ethiopia, and they each had an incredibly rough start to life (to put it lightly!).  They came to us with nothing, but they have given me so much!  And they have each grown into amazing little girls … they each have gifts that are incredible and inspiring.  My oldest daughter is in kindergarten, but is the smartest little girl I know (she’s reading at a third grade level!).  My 3 year old is the funniest and most gregarious person I have ever met – she lights up every room she enters and brings a smile to the face of every person she meets.  Every day, I think about how far they have come in life.  I am so lucky to get to be their mom, and they make me want to be a better person so I can help give them everything in life that they deserve.

    My dog inspires me to be a better person. She’s a rescue, although she was born at the rescue so she doesn’t have a horrible past. Her sweetness and devotion make me want to live up to her image of me.

    Jenni says:

    My grandmother. She has a hard life, but she was never seen without a smile on her face. She couldn’t walk into a room without everyone in it smiling to see her, and every story she told was so filled with passion, you could imagine you were right there with her… She passed away this past September, and every day since then I have tried to make it my goal to be more like her. To love deeply, celebrate all of life’s moments, find humor in the smallest things and to always enjoy a trip to Wal-Mart or an impromtu vanilla shake from McDonalds.

    PS- LOVE the aqua chevron! It’s beautiful for spring!

    When I read the New Testament and see the example of Jesus, I know the kind of person that I need to be. He truly inspires me to be better, love better, and live better. More generous of self, more kind, more compassionate.

    I had the pleasure of tutoring a boy who was diagnosed with brain cancer.  Sadly, he lost his battle a few weeks ago.  Ever since I met him, I have felt inspired by him to live a life where I appreciate the little things.

    i think that you must look within yourself for that comfort and strength. i think there power when you go back and remember yourself as a child and saw the world with big eyes and beautiful dreams.

    Renee A. says:

    Without a doubt, it would be my three children who teach me what it really means to have unconditional love, how to leave my fears aside and how to reach for the stars..they may not have lived as long as I have, but I must say, children do have a lot of wisdom to share with us parents. They give me the strength to push through the hard times and support me when I need it.

    Jackeline says:

    My daughter inspires me! She has taught me how to look through a child’s eyes. I now take a moment to soak up my surroundings and enjoy it’s beauty. I feel so peaceful and inspired by her.

    Michelle M. says:

    My older brother inspires me. He has a young family and was diagnosed with end stage kidney disease. The transplant wait list in CA is 6 years, but he’s not letting that get him down. He inspires me to be as much as I can be, to love all that I meet and enjoy the ride life is taking me on.

    My 6 month old baby girl! She is amazing, I never knew I could love something this much! Everyday I want to be a better person for her. I want my daughter to grow up and do amazing things for this world! I just hope that I can inspire her everyday!

    My dad, my hero.  He is 88 years old and bless him, just retired doing his last tax season as CPA.  He always seems to find the right words to say to make others feel better and when anyone asks him how he is, no matter how bad he is feeling – he says with zest FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANTASTIC

    Brittany K says:

    Definitely my parents. They are the most amazing role models and influences in my life. My mom last her dad when she was just 21. I cannot imagine my life without either one of them. They push me to be my best, which is easy to mirror from them.

    Katherine says:

    One of my best friends, Juliea, is so good at loving others- myself included. She’s always affirming and encouraging me, inspiring me to love myself. She’s a runner and a hard worker, a hiker and a coach. She’s a beautiful person in every way and makes me feel sunnier with even just a text message.

    I have to say it would be my four year old son. I smile at his sweet face and frown at his occasional bursts of temper recognising myself in his outburst. He’s a constant reflection of me and how I behave and this makes me want to be a better person and mom.

    Kate B says:

    My best friend and I are encouraging each other right now to go after our dreams. It took me a really long time to think of myself as a graphic designer (honestly, the first time I wrote it out on my website a few months ago was a massive triumph), because I have been in jobs where I was primarily a receptionist, but providing some awesome graphic skills to my company. My friend has always had a dream of being a special kind of consultant (can’t really give too much away until she goes after it!). This year we’ve really been pushing each other to embrace what would fuel our souls and make us happy. I have a lot of lovely, supportive people in my life, but the boost I get from her every time I take a step in the right direction is so meaningful to me!

    My kids. They are the best gift I could ever receive. every single day they teach me a new lesson, and a new way to be better in every aspect of life.  who else but my kids could give me more motivation and faith to be the best I can be knowing that I’m teaching them,  to be the best person they will grow up to be

    Kate L. says:

    My mom has always inspired me to live, love, and be better. She supports me in everything that I do, encourages me to challenge myself, and doesn’t always tell me what I want to hear. My hope is that I conduct myself outside of her presence as well as I do when I am in it.

    Redding says:

    In general, humanity inspires me to be a better person.  When I hear of people doing kind and wonderful things I want to join them and be the best I can be for others and then when I hear of sad things happening in the world, I’m still motivated so that I help make the world a better place.
