Check Out Alexandria Baldovinos and Krysta Gleason’s Story

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alexandria Baldovinos and Krysta Gleason.

Hi Alexandria and Krysta, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Growing up, our parents always inspired us to try things we found interesting, one of them being a love for creating. Before we were in high school, we actually started a business to help raise money to stop human trafficking. We had heard about the need for helping people and wanting to find a way that we could do just that. We would find things that other people had gotten rid of or that needed a new life and then would recreate them into hairpieces, jewelry, clothing, and even furniture. This creativity gave us the ability to give to the different organizations that worked with women. We reached the age where we were all going to school and realized it was time to take a break. So when the idea of starting our Instagram page ember.jae, as a creative outlet from work and school, came about we were so excited. Over time the vision slowly changed and we decided we wanted to create a place for women to feel encouraged and inspired to find beauty and creativity in their everyday life.

We are three sisters coming from three different seasons of life (Krysta being a stay-at-home mom. Alex being newly married and using her education to work from home. Tori the adventure of living in a different state and starting a new career) and sharing our journeys, not only with each other but with the world around us. Our goal is that through sharing our stories people are encouraged to find the sparks of beauty in their own.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
In coming from three different perspectives, it has been an amazing opportunity to find each other strengths and be able to use them to all work together.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
What sets us apart is that we are three sisters working together to meet the same goal and vision.

We feel the most proud when those around us share how they have been inspired by us. Whether it’s through an upcycled project, a hair tutorial, or a good deal we have shared we love seeing pictures and hearing their stories.

We are most known for recreating things we already have into new uses, hair tutorials (give us all the braids and buns), and sharing affordable fashion inspiration.

What matters most to you? Why?
That others feel encouraged and inspired to be beautiful in who they are. Being unique and taking time for the things you find passion in is something we desire for everyone to do.
