This from an e-mail my friend Kim sent me that made me smile.

Dear Mrs. Jones,

I wish to clarify that I am not now, nor have I ever been, an exotic dancer. I work at Home Depot and I told Sarah how hectic it was last week before the blizzard hit. I told her we sold out every single shovel we had. Then I found one more in the back room, and several people were fighting over who would get it.

Sarahʼs picture does NOT show me dancing around a pole. It’s supposed to depict me selling the last snow shovel we had at Home Depot. From now on I will remember to check her homework more thoroughly before she turns it in.

Sincerely,

Mrs. Smith

And what if she was an exotic dancer…

My mom sent me this site, VivaTerra – Eco Living with Style, the other day. She told me she received a catalog that might be interesting for my blog. That the site features things for the home that are made from recyclable or renewable resources. She said, “They have pretty things, but we do not need anything.”

I was impressed that she thought I might be interested in this company enough to write about it, but what I was most impressed reading was, “…but we do not need anything.” Anyone that knows my fantastical mother knows she loves to shop for clothes, home furnishings and the like whenever possible.  This was the first time I ever heard her say we don’t need anything! :) The fact that she takes my writing somewhat seriously was pretty fresh as well. You know not matter what, we all want to do right by our mothers, we want them to be proud of who we are and what we do. Well, I do.

On top of all that, I also like the site! The Wooly Owl is awesome!!! According to the Viva Terra web site, the owl is, “Hand-spun and hand-knitted by women in rural Kenya, this plump, huggable owl is dyed with plants grown in the women’s gardens. The money they earn pays for glasses when it was discovered that some women were knitting inches away from their eyes because they couldn’t see correctly. Now they see a prosperous future before them and their children, thanks to the program that enables them to create these adorable wool owls.” It is eco and sustainable in the sense that someone may not need the product, but may love it. In loving it, they help women, who by doing something positive, get something in return they need to survive and enjoy their life, sight. That my friends is pretty fresh.

The End.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
