My hope is that these designs will evoke a sense of serenity and peace for all who purchase the pieces. I am proud to volunteer and donate a portion of my proceeds to Child Advocates which is a wonderful non-profit organization in Houston.
E. Blome Designs is a wholesaler of inspirational handmade gift items. All products are original and produced in Texas. As an Artist/Designer, I want to convey a message of hope with my product line. Many of the pieces have a story card included describing where my inspiration for the piece came from.
"With our lives rushing by, I hope you take time to enjoy each day and seek a simpler path in life." ~ Elizabeth Blome
