Girls Can! CRATE

From Marie Curie to Bessie Coleman, Irena Sendler to Florence Nightingale, Patsy Mink to Malala - GIRLS CAN! CRATE inspires girls to BE and DO anything by introducing them to fearless women who made the world better.

Girls are AWESOME and have been changing the world FOREVER. Yet, in 2016, most products designed for girls are about princesses, beauty, and care taking. Between 3-4 years old, little ones begin to adopt gender stereotypes and girls start to define some things, like math and science, as being “for boys.” As they grow, studies show that girls are less likely to think they have “what it takes.” We think girls deserve more!

We created GIRLS CAN! CRATE to show girls how AMAZING they are and we think role models are a big part of that. Did you know that when Bessie Coleman was told she couldn’t become a pilot in America, she taught herself French, sailed across the ocean, and became the first American to earn an International Pilot’s License? Or that Patsy Mink was rejected from 20 medical schools because she was female, so she became a congresswoman and wrote Title IX to end gender discrimination in educational programs? How amazing is that?!

Sally Ride said, “You cannot be what you cannot see.” We think the more girls learn about women like Bessie and Patsy, the more fearless they’ll grow — believing in themselves and their potential to make the world better, too! Each month, we deliver a crate (AKA a cool box) to your door filled with everything you need to introduce girls to fearless female role models who show them ALL the things they can be. To make our mission a reality, we will donate 10% of the proceeds from every single GIRLS CAN! CRATE purchased to nonprofit organizations giving girls resources to succeed. Together, we can show girls they can BE and DO anything. So, move over princesses, because real women make the best heroes and GIRLS CAN! CRATE is delivering them!

Carrot Top Paper Shop:

Literary prints for Kindred Spirits

Hello! My name is Jenny Williams and I’m the artist and owner of Carrot Top Paper Shop. I’m so pleased you are here.

The idea that inspired Carrot Top Paper Shop is near and dear to my heart.

It began when I was pregnant with our daughter, scouring the internet for cute, literary-themed artwork for her nursery— and I couldn’t find what I was looking for anywhere!

When I found out we were having a little girl, one of the things I most looked forward to was sharing my love of reading with her. I wanted her to have artwork in her room that would inspire curiosity about, and admiration for, the strong literary heroines I love so dearly.

Since I couldn’t purchase what I wanted, I decided to take matters into my own hands, and I created my first literary heroine banner.

I wasn’t planning on starting my own business at that point, but after receiving feedback from friends and family, I realized there were other moms out there looking for the same thing, and I wanted to give them exactly what I had been looking for.

A few months later, after many long days of working through my baby’s nap times, I released my very first product line of five literary heroine prints, and five bookish quote prints.

I’ve always dreamed of a job that didn’t feel like a job, and creating literary artwork for fellow bibliophiles is definitely it.

I absolutely love connecting with fellow literary-fans and kindred spirits. I am quick to tell inquiring minds that I have the kindest customers a girl could ask for. I love talking about your favorite books, and getting your excellent feedback on future products! (Follow @carrottoppapershop on instagram to join the party.)

I have worked on Capitol Hill and in the corporate world, but making literary-themed art work for you, and being the mom to my baby girl, is by far my favorite job.

My hope is that my shop has exactly what you need to brighten your daughter’s room, classroom, your book space, or boring office cubicle. Carrot Top Paper Shop has designs for kindred spirits of all ages. And as Anne Shirley says, kindred spirits aren’t as scarce as I used to think. :)

A note about my process:

I illustrate all of my heroines and quotes by hand in my tiny, sunny, home studio and make them beautiful with rich Pan Pastels (and a little colored pencil). I use a local business here in Oklahoma for printing all of my art prints and bookmarks, to ensure optimal quality for long-lasting usage.

My next product line will be launching in October, 2017! Carrot Top Paper Shop is named after everyone’s favorite red head, Anne Shirley.
