Meet Amy Howard

Creativity resides in all of us. We are designed in our hearts to be inspired and to inspire others. Creativity can even connect us to the Divine. Even if you don’t fully believe it yet, you are, in fact, creative. After thirty years of using my creativity to craft a beautiful life for myself and others, I want to encourage you to follow in my footsteps. Whether you’re restoring a precious piece of furniture, designing wall art, or completing any number of creative projects, you will feel how art can stir the soul and satisfy the heart. Let me encourage you to give yourself the permission to make joyfully and realize your creative potential. I can’t wait to see what you create, XO, Amy Howard Founder of A Makers’ Studio

before Rescue Restore Paint Americans throw away 28 million tons of furniture every year. You can stop spending thousands on new furniture and join us in the campaign to rescue and restore instead! 16 oz. $24.50 | 2 oz. $7.99

Rescue Restore Paint transforms furniture from drab to fab with an authentic, vintage finish. No need to spend hours sanding, stripping or priming your surface before painting. Simply apply on top of an existing finish. Rescue Restore Paint is water-based with no VOCs. It’s completely safe to use, even for your littlest family members! This patented formulation works on virtually any surface, including wood, glass, resin, melamine, Formica, concrete, iron, stone, and even outdoor furniture and dÊcor.

Unlike most commercial paints, Rescue Restore Paint actually smells great as soon as you open the can!

RE•NEW•ALL Candles The road to restoration is long for women who leave sex trafficking. One of the most difficult aspects of their journey is finding meaningful employment.

Each time you add a RE•NEW•ALL candle to your home or gift one to someone you love, you are giving the gift of restoration to one of these women.

RE•NEW•ALL candles feature natural soy wax and a cotton wick. Each one is hand poured in Memphis, Tennessee, and signed by the woman who is being rescued and restored by your purchase.
