Although you've well imagined me vacationing aside blue/green waters with sand beneath my feet; tisn't so.
I've been in my basement, sewing.
Faced with growing piles of upholstery samples, I'd become somewhat overwhelmed. It was like I was living in a warehouse full of possibility, and in that land of plenty, I lost my ability to "make something from nothing".
So I came up with a plan: First off, planned deprivation. Move 75% of my stock into the garage and out of sight. Then take a single pile (or two) and set it beside my sewing machine. Challenge myself to just make something out of what I saw before me.
What happened? Lots of tote bags; shopping style. Simple. Sturdy. With practically a lifetime guarantee (except I'll never put that into writing....)
And since I've been MIA for so verrrrry long, I wonder if all the shoppers have picked up their pennies and moved over to some online shop with a little bit of reliability? So, I just want to move this stuff. All I want is ten bucks per bag. When all ten are sold, it'll add up to $100.00 which is a lot more than what I've been raising lately. And it's time to get up and get moving.
Especially after having watched "God Grew Tired of Us"- a documentary film about the "lost boys" of Sudan.
Wow. Have we got it good.
And surely we have a responsibility to do something for people without so many choices.
For just ten bucks, you can help me make the first step towards that something.
