Comments

NEW VENDOR ALERT: Quiet Cricket Studio founder Hannah Armstrong was raised in southern Louisiana, where she reveled in the outdoors. She traveled the western United States, working on a variety of permaculture and holistic farms. This inspired a deeper study into plants and the ways in which people interact with them. Working with botanists, farmers, and makers of all sorts has given her a diverse base from which to grow her own practice. Combining her passions, the objects she’s created within Quiet Cricket Studio are all-natural, responsibly sourced, and handcrafted.
Sustainability is key in Quiet Cricket's work. Many of their products are in direct response to the harsh synthetic chemicals found in everyday products. They work hard to source the highest quality ingredients that travel the least distance to their studio. Find their luscious candles and body products at the Mueller market starting this Sunday!

Can't wait to check out the Etsy!! Just in time for all my people's October birthdays :)

Big news y’all! I’m coming out of retirement for 2 weeks only and selling the candles I have left in stock with @rhodes.hinman over at @splintergroupatx this weekend and next!

If you haven’t been to the East Austin Studio Tour before, check out @bigmediumaustin for all the details! Artists all over town open up their studios, and you can pick up a map at any local library to plan your route. If lots of little stops aren’t your thing, I recommend checking out a few collectives. @canopyaustin has loads of fine arts studios, @springdalegeneral has a mix of fine arts and wares, and @splintergroupatx has all the craft furniture and a mix of ceramics and paintings!

@rhodes.hinman has pulled some pieces from the archives and all sorts of furniture from our house, so come by and say hi from 12-6 the next 2 Saturdays and Sundays! There’ll even be a food truck by @jshibachi ✨

Only 32 spritzers left until they are discontinued! I’ve got a few refill bottles ready as well.
🌿
I use these spritzers as an everything spray, especially in the summer. I’ll use them instead of deodorant on a day when I’m not working outside, or to freshen up. They’re especially great as a foot spray if you wear clogs like I do 😂

PS: check out what else has been discontinued in this round in the highlight “LAST CALL”.

Our studio clean up sale is live again in the stories/highlights. With every sale we set aside 10% of the profits to support the plants and environment we depend on. However, this month that 10% will go to support our neighbors in El Paso and Juarez. We’ll be donating to the HOPE Border Institute as a small contribution to the work they are doing. They provide thorough and accessible information about the border and immigration crisis so we can all educate ourselves and take action, as well as critical support to the people directly impacted by these policies. You can learn more about the crisis and what HOPE does at hopeborder.org. You can also donate directly through their website and connect with other organizations such as Annunciation House who need support. . . . #nowalls #openpassages #annunciationhouse #nowall #stillwerise #elpasostrong #dobetter #saynototerrorism #donate https://ift.tt/2GN9xH2

Spending time in the desert always dries my skin out! Thankfully working with plants, there are some options. Our serums are a blend of nourishing oils that keep skin hydrated without clogging pores. You wouldn’t put water on leather and expect it not to crack, so why do we use water based lotions on our skin? {Prickly pear seed oil is my favorite ingredient.} . . . #westtexascloudappreciationsociety #opuntia #desertliving #serums #plantbased #oils #essentialoils #faceoils #botanicalgoodness #austin #marfa #handmade #plantsaremagic https://ift.tt/2ZsIat6

White sands was beyond what we could have imagined. It's so striking to drive through harsh desert only to find an oasis of white sand dunes that look like they'll lead to clear blue water. The little creatures that live in the dunes were just as incredible. . . . #whitesandsnationalmonument #whitesands #whitesandsnewmexico #sanddunes #blueskies #dancinginthesand #nature #desert #west #outwest #southwest #westtexascloudappreciationsociety https://ift.tt/2ycnTfu

Creature comforts. This kitty was my roommate on my last trip to Baton Rouge. Side note, I've been thinking of taking up broom-making lately as a hobby. Yucca stalks and sotol bristles, anyone? .

It’s #plasticfreejuly , but what happens to all the plastic already circulating? It’s notoriously difficult to recycle, but certainly not decomposing. Our face masks come in thick glass jars, and have recycled resin lids ♻️✔️🌿 the plastic is already out there, so let’s do our part to keep it in use responsibly rather than producing more or tossing it to buy something new that looks the part of a green lifestyle. . On that note, we’ve been struggling to find a Deodorant tube that lives up to our standards! The ones we use now were manufactured in the US (as are all of our vessels), but we’re not thrilled with the plastic. At home, we use glass jars for our deodorant, and starting next week we’ll be offering deodorant in the same jars our face masks come in for y’all as well ✨ We’ll still offer tubes (they’re a really accessible way to use natural deodorant rather than harsh chemical varieties), but this is a greener alternative for those of you who are game getting cozy with your pits 💪 . 📸 @icbophotography . . #plasticfreejuly2019 #greenwashing #reuse #recycle #pits #happypits #facemasks #reducingwaste #madeinusa #madeinaustin #handmade #myhandmadelife #simplemoments #quietcricketstudio #austinrecycles #texas https://ift.tt/2XC6pYU

I worked on a flower farm for a while in Olympia, and one of my first tasks was trimming Eucalyptus. It was fragrant and wonderful and I got to take an armload of the clippings home. What a dream! I hung sprigs and bundles all over our house, and of course in our shower. I don't have access to fresh eucalyptus like that anymore, but I do have our Rosemary Peppermint Eucalyptus candles.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It takes an incredible amount of a plant to create a pound of essential oils (in Lavender's case, it takes 250lb). That's potentially a huge amount of pesticides being pumped into the environment by workers exposed to the toxins. Because of its massive environmental impact, we source organically wherever possible. Our Eucalyptus essential oil is certified organic by the USDA + Oregon Tilth*. We believe that shows in the quality of the oil, and the quality of life for the people working with the plants at every stage.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ *To be clear, we are a small business and not certified ourselves. We'll happily provide more information and certifications that come with our ingredients upon request!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #eucalyptus #flowerfarm #seasonalyear #seasonalliving #quietcricketstudio #pnw #magical #plantsaremagic #botanicals #essentialoils #plantbased #zerowaste #quietcricketstudio #workerprotection #eco #ethical #tilth #organic https://ift.tt/2XtDl5O

I can’t believe I’ve been working for myself full-time for 6 months now! It still feels unreal sometimes. Quiet Cricket Studio is coming up on its 2nd birthday, and it’s amazing how much it’s come into its own. (Yes, I’m speaking about it like it’s my child, but no, I don’t believe corporations are people.)⁣ .⁣ I am notoriously difficult to capture on camera (awkward or vampire, you decide), and 📸 @icbophotography was so sweet about it yesterday!

Why Soy and Essential Oils?

quietcricketstudio.com With all of the options for candle wax out there, why soy? The default for candles became petroleum wax with industrialization in the mid 19th century. Studies have shown that paraffin (petroleum based) candles are toxic to burn, releasing many known carcinogens. While beeswax is a hard wax that

Our Story

Quiet Cricket Studio founder Hannah Armstrong was raised in southern Louisiana, where she reveled in the outdoors. She traveled the western United States, working on a variety of permaculture and holistic farms. This inspired a deeper study into plants, and the ways in which people interact with them. Working with botanists, farmers, and makers of all sorts has given her a diverse base from which to grow her own practice.

Working with her hands has always been important, just as creating and playing have been. Combining her passions, the objects she’s created within Quiet Cricket Studio are all natural, responsibly sourced, and handcrafted.

Sustainability is key in our work. Many of our products are in direct response to the harsh synthetic chemicals found in everyday products. From petroleum based candles with lead wicks that release carcinogenic fumes, to aerosol canisters for dry shampoo that contribute to greenhouse gasses, we have to do better. It’s so simple. Simple ingredients. Natural. Quality.

We work hard to source the highest quality ingredients that have to travel the least distance to our studio. The soy wax used in our candles is grown in the Midwest. The jars are manufactured in Pennsylvania. Our shipping materials are frequently reclaimed, and always made with post-consumer paper.
