"As the owner of Outside The Shape people ask me every day, “How did you get into this?” I have never really been sure how to answer this question! I have always known that a conventional job was never going to be for me, so I starting spending all my time thinking about what I love, what I value & what I know my strengths are. Overtime a blurry vision of O.T.S came into view. It was always a pipe dream - until it wasn’t! I found the perfect spot and I took a huge leap. I quit my job, put every penny into fixing up the property and started curating artists, creators and makers. From there Outside The Shape became my reality. It has grown, changed, and transformed so many times and I couldn’t be more thankful for the incredibly inspiring and supportive people I get to work with every single day."

The Smudging Bundle featured in the Winter 2020 HomeBox is carefully handmade by Francesca with two variations of sage grown and gathered in the wild Calgary, Alberta; lavender collected from Osoyoos, British Columbia; a stick of palo santo & and beautiful piece of selenite.
Palo Santo is from a wild tree native to Ecuador and Peru. Its essence is believed to energetically clear a space of any lingering or stagnant energy.
Locally harvested silver sage emits a cool smoke which centers, grounds and brings clarity, while encouraging action.
Selenite is a beautiful soft stone used for good luck, protection and positive energy.
Burn the palo santo together or separately and enjoy the selenite as an added bonus for your smudging rituals.
