Alex Lyons | Rae of Sunshine Collective
Hey everyone! I’m Alex Lyons, the owner, maker, and creator behind Rae of Sunshine, the project I launched in 2020. In addition to being a full-time business owner, I am also a wife and mother of two, Berkley Rae and Sage Renee. My small family also includes our gorgeous Great Dane, Ivy.

My ultimate goal is to inspire people to come together through their community, wherever they are, to promote love and peace to all. With the support of my beloved customers and community, I look forward to seeing what 2023 has in store for Rae of Sunshine Collective!
Candy Artworks | Candice Mcenturff
Candice has an impressive eye for art that can catch anyone's gaze. She is endlessly inspired and loves creating art through various faucets such as canvas paintings, home decor, wearables, and functional art. Her creativity flows from “life’s beauty in general,” so after searching for a hobby to spice up her life, a simple painting class launched her all-consuming passion for art– which drove her to where she is now. Her knack for painting allowed her to experiment with her skills, leading her to participate in art shows, sell her work at markets, and teach painting classes for beginners. Being a full-time artist since 2019 has changed her life, and this opportunity will always be considered a gift from God. Aiming to spread love, joy, and healing, her art sits in many hearts and homes doing just that.
Celestial Jewelry Co. | Ashlyn Harvey
Ashlyn's visions of a company that helps people dig deep inside to conjure up intentions, healing properties, and reminders of self-worth are coming to pass. Celestial Jewelry Co, Ashlyn’s passion project, has led her down many roads to success. The event that started this spark of inspiration for healing and change arrived after she had her son JUNI. She did not set many expectations, as she is a purely “go with the flow” type of person, and wow, did that pay off! Every item you see is handmade with sprinkles of light, love, peace, healing, happiness, abundance, and protection– all virtues manifested in Ashlyn's journal when writing about her business. The intentions she set for her shop have blossomed into something she could never have imagined. She is beyond grateful for this experience and hopes to pass on the same light and love she received when pioneering this business!

Letterhouse Co. | Ginny Thornton
Like many other creatives, Ginny cultivated her love for designing and writing early on. During college, she started diving into and exploring her lettering skills, which led her to create greeting cards! After graduating college, she was immersed in the culture of creativity through a wedding company, and she started to feel some sparks rising within her. This new-found imagination marinated deep within until it could finally burst out, right on time when she was looking for a small income outlet from her second-grade teaching job. She found love and looked to solidify it through marriage, which is when she could do the calligraphy for her wedding! This opportunity gave her the confidence to push herself and reach out for more. She is now a teacher, wife, and mama doing what makes her the very happiest, besides watching The Office and a good ‘ol breve latte. She hopes to transform her little piece of the internet with love, joy, and friendship through her masterful lettering skills!

Madden & Co. | Grace Dille
Grace has always held her art skills near to her heart. After growing up in Chicago, she planted her roots in Dallas, TX, where she worked as a former creative director and eventually jumped to become Madden and Co's CEO! When she was younger, she used to sell her art at an “art stand” instead of squeezing the lemons like some other kids. She knew her worth! Over the years, she transformed simple sketches into cards and sold them to friends and family. Her business began to grow, which means her products did too. She now offers a full range of eco-friendly paper goods and gifts that include, but are not limited to, stickers, art prints, and paintings. She kept her “artist” dream in the dream drawer and pulled it out at just the right time, creating this passion project that leaves her happy and fulfilled!
Hilo Sisters Macrame | Emily Renfro
Emily’s love for working with her hands and learning new skills runs deep. While sharing her full-time working days with her two young sons, she needed an outlet. She was introduced to macrame by her dad when she was younger, so it was “fairly easy to jump into” as a faucet for creativity and a source of income! This spark of passion came at the perfect time, as now she gets to spend her free time outdoors with her husband of a decade and her two sons! They enjoy hiking, camping, and sports together. She has been doing macrame for almost half a decade now and could not imagine her life without it. Although she was born and raised in Texas, she and her family now live and thrive in Oklahoma City, where she has found her niche and hopes to offer macrame workshops very soon. She loves working with clients on custom pieces that bring joy and life into people's homes and dwelling places!

Love Within Us | Megan Moore

To help others gain the same love and empowerment, Megan created a beautiful affirmation deck with hand-painted cards and carefully selected affirmations to encourage quiet, and intentional breaths. She believes that when you refocus on yourself and create quiet moments, you gain a deeper understanding of yourself and all you can accomplish. Her mission is to spread love and light through self-affirmation, and she has done extremely well at reaching it so far! If you have grown from Megan's affirmation deck, she is truly grateful and sends lots of love your way.
