News & Developments from Leah Mebane

Happy Holidays from Leah & Django!


I wanted to give a final update on our Earth Paints fundraiser and search for a warehouse. After searching for the past month and not finding a single warehouse space even available in our small town, I was feeling pretty disheartened until I found the perfect space this afternoon! Very synchronistic as a friend’s friend decided to move out of their space and told me first. It’s the perfect size and location and available for us to move in on Jan. 1st (which is perfect timing so we don’t have to scoop thousands of natural dye baggies in our freezing, tiny shed all Winter)!


Our fundraiser has a few days left (ends Dec. 10th) and we’ve raised 22% of our goal to pay for the warehouse and hire 2 employees. By the way, this isn’t a kickstarter fundraiser, in which you have to raise the full amount to receive any funding, but a rocket hub fundraiser where you’re given everything that’s donated. Check it out, we have lots of great Earth Paints gifts and original oil paintings for everyone who donates and we would of course be forever grateful for any support. This is the only fundraiser we will ever do and will help to get us through this rocky patch and then I’m confident it will be smooth sailing as we keep developing more and more non-toxic art supplies so that eventually everyone on the planet can express themselves creatively without harming the earth or their health!
