Justina Sharp of A Bent Piece of Wire is living proof that when you live with clarity of purpose and positive intentions, good things happen. Graduating from high school a year early this past spring, was just one of many accomplishments this teen blogger can already check off her list (featured in Teen Vogue? check. Contributor to the Huffington Post? check.). We’re pretty sure that this young entrepreneur has a ton of good things coming her way.
The idea of togetherness and family ties together everything we do at Dogeared. From our collections to the meaning behind each piece, to relationships and our commitment to the environment and communities – all are established with the core intent of connection and being a part of something greater.
Seeking harmony amongst all the complicated aspects of life is a universal desire that we all seem to strive for. We sat down with Marcia to try and gain some insight as to how this mom, wife, business owner & philanthropist maintains balance in her own life. “It’s about continuing to move forward,” she explains.
From the start, Marcia Maizel-Clarke, Dogeared’s Founder, Owner & all around Creative Force was intuitively capturing special moments and turning them into something more. Although it wasn’t a clear path to creating Dogeared, moments of her childhood forged a powerful idea of connection and it was something that would stick with her.
Last Friday, we were lucky enough to spend the day as a team at the beach! It was an amazing day spent bonding with coworkers (charades, anyone?) and enjoying all the goodness that Dogeared has to offer. As a company, we know how important it is to have positive energy flowing through everything that we do. Days like this remind us why we all love working here. When we say Dogeared is made with love, we mean it!
As we head into the 4th of July weekend, we’re feeling excitement, patriotism and we’re ready to celebrate! We’ve been rooting on Team USA in the World Cup and we’re definitely feeling the USA love around Dogeared these days. But, it’s YOUR love has kept our dreams alive! Because of you, our commitment as a certified B Corporation to create a beautiful community and meaningful handcrafted designs in the USA has never been stronger.
