Motherhood is all around us. It’s in every woman, whether or not they have children. Because motherhood is a lot of things: it’s nurturing, caring, and loving. Oftentimes it’s selfless, unconditional, and feels like a big hug.
Back in the day, things got a little twisted with all the tall tales of girls being the only ones to hold up their flowers and pick the petals off one by one, debating whether “they love me,” or “they love me not.”
We love finding new artists to follow. More importantly, we love sharing art that makes us smile, feel empowered and that is relatable. Need some fresh moments on your feed? Give these artists a follow!

At Petalfox, our mission is to help you curate a more intentional space to dream, make and do. We asked some of our friends to tell us about some of their must-have desk accessories or emergency drawer stash for the summer.
In place of e-commerce, Petalfox is pioneering a whole new way to shop, buy and re-purchase over text message. Based on our own experiences, we’ve developed a new way to buy things you love on a regular basis, starting with flowers. We call this text commerce. See how it works.
Building a startup is all about testing a bunch of theories and figuring out what sticks. There are also usually about 1,000 other things that you’re taking into consideration along the way. Pretty much all of these things involve doing things that don’t scale.
Taking the first, true step in any new direction is daunting. But courage can take many forms. Once you’ve made the decision to found your company, it’s important is to identify a few things you can do to start making your dream feel tangible.
Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to get started.
We thought it was time to introduce the wizard behind all things Petalfox logistics, our #COO Rhenee Bartlett. Rhenee is a master of… pretty much everything. So, we snuck her away for a quick interview, to pick her brain and see her infamous GIFs.
“Do what you love” and “be the master of [my] own destiny.”
Those ideas have guided me throughout my journey and brought me here [to Petalfox.] Petalfox is truly the amalgamation of these two vision statements.
Our #CEO Kelly shares about the first steps in her journey
Before I started my company, I would spend an hour in the car every morning listening to the Gary V Audio Experience. I would pair this podcast with a daily flat white and it would fire me up just before I spent the rest of my day as a cog in the corporate wheel.
However, this daily experience left me with a residue of disappointment, angst and frustration because I came to realize that I was an entrepreneur, masquerading as a happy and compliant employee. And each day I felt less like myself as I listened and compared myself to all of the founders who had found a way to do what I [seemingly] could not.
I love reading and listening to the stories of other founders. It excites me to empathize with the challenges they encountered before becoming a story worth featuring in print or recounting over podcast. While those recounts are a broad “looking back”, through the lens of present success I plan to document for you, the process of starting with nothing and becoming something.
