reinvention... and it feels so good!

YES!
I took you and my iphone out with me to sit under the trees and open up one of the most exciting boxes of my life. I did it all on video! One take... it's very REAL. But so far it's stuck on my phone... as soon as my savvy son gets home, I hope he can teach me how to upload it. For now, I'm savoring this moment and waiting to see my children's faces as they look into the box next! It's a heady, heart overflowing feeling... seeing this dream come true. I wish this experience for each of you. We all have the potential to take a vision and make it real. That idea that you've been gently holding... go DO it!! YOU CAN!
********
In honor of this weekend's Earth Day,  I will be at the Saturday Ithaca Farmer's Market sewing t-shirts into market bags for their  Kick the Bag Habit campaign. Please come by and say "hi" between 1:30-3.  I'll be sure to bring a copy of reinvention-sewing with rescued materials for anyone wanting to take a look. Wahoo!! Local launch party and celebration details will be announced on Monday. Have a wonderful weekend!
