Texas Strong: Thank you!

I’m gonna get right to the point today, folks: Thanks to y’all, we (in partnership with Miller Imaging & Digital Solutions) were able to donate $5,358.66 to I Live Here I Give Here’s Amplify: Disaster Relief Fund to help Central Texans affected by the recent winter storm. 

Because of your generosity, we sold 134 of the Texas Strong wall hangings (in one week!) that we designed in collaboration with Miller IDS.

100% of the proceeds from those sales went directly to help Texans affected by the storm. 

We want to thank those who purchased the Texas Strong wall hangings, those of you who took the time to share with friends and family on your social media, and we want to thank Luci Miller and Vittoria Mottler at Miller IDS for their partnership on this endeavor. 

For those of you who did purchase, your Texas Strong wall hangings we've already begun shipping them out this week. Thank you, again, for your support, and thank you also for your patience as we work through shipping all of these orders! There will be a 15% discount code included in your shipment for a future purchase. :) 

If you weren’t able to purchase or missed out this time around, stay tuned. We are working on a larger version of the Texas Strong wall hanging (and a few other related items), and we will make an announcement on those as soon as we have the details worked out. 

Thank y’all and stay strong!
Like many great discoveries in history—chocolate chip cookies, Post-it notes, the Slinky—Kris and Kelley Denby came up with their popular Texas wall hangings almost by accident.
In 2013—about a year into their sputtering business of repurposing furniture, called Hemlock & Heather—the Denbys decided to make and donate something to a silent auction that would benefit the victims of the fertilizer plant explosion in the town of West. Kelley, who is from West, asked her husband to build something “Texasy.”
So Kris came up with a colorful wall hanging made entirely from reclaimed wood and in the iconic shape of Texas. It sold for $150. 
“People just went crazy for it,” recalls Kelley. “We were like, Maybe we’re on to something.”
