SUMMER + DREAMER COLLECTIVE

SIMPLE + MINIMALIST REMINDERS THAT YOU ARE LOVED.

Welcome to Summer + Dreamer Collective where minimalist designs are meant to remind you that you are deeply loved, wonderfully made and created with a beautiful purpose. Our goal is always to increase positivity + spark meaningful conversations based off of our intentionally designed pieces. Each of us has the responsibility to spread beauty, positivity, and conversation to anyone we encounter because we want to make a lasting difference in the world - we are NOT simply spectators. Get a piece for yourself - or give it as an expression of gratitude to someone who is ALSO making a difference in the world.

S + D STORY

Conversations matter. Let’s chat.

 

I started Summer + Dreamer because I was in need of beauty from ashes. A way to explore myself and really, find myself. At the beginning, I found myself blocked, not advocating passionately for what I loved and worrying about what others would think about my passions. In one moment - as the words of a friend flashed on my screen - be yourself. Eyes opened, oceans parted, what people thought melted away.

 

I began to recognize I was not being myself, but I was being what I thought others wanted me to be. AND by doing that I was hurting myself. SO - I shifted.

 

Almost immediately ideas began to flood into my soul. What if I shared what I WAS passionate about - mental health, being a VEGAN (yep - totally one of those), feminism, environmental concerns and social justice. To me - these elements are the mind, body and soul of loving Jesus.

 

For 20 years I have tried to be the person the church forced me to be and I have had enough of trying to continue to appear that way. I have been called so many things from churches over the years, but I have hidden my advocacy because it was too much for church members. Well here I am - still loving Jesus and advocating for social justice, the environment, mental health, women and encourage everyone to try a plant based diet. Why? Because we need change. I promise you won't miss bacon.
