Hope

18 Dec 2012

It is with a grateful heart that tomorrow we donate $21,800  to Autism Speaks and the Carmen B. Pingree Center for Autism ($1,800 is from our friend Billy Alper- Thanks Billy!)  Your purchases from Pieces of Hope fabric line have generated this donation. I have a nephew with Autism.  He is sweet, curious, smart, but does not speak.  We try and connect with him and see into his world.

Christmas Fabric lights

30 Nov 2012


Since tomorrow is December 1st...I thought I would share this fun Christmas idea brought to you from Chrissy (on staff at Riley Blake Designs).  Given to her by her sister, these Christmas lights are embellished with fabric ties.  It is only one set of regular Christmas lights with strips of fabric. The fabric is 1" wide and 4 1/2" long strips, tied between the lights. 5 strips of fabric between each light. It would probably not meet fire code, so I would not leave it unattended. But isn't cute, you could do this with any holiday fabric ... ...read more

One that didn't snap, or zip or close... since her 2 yr old hands had a hard time with those kinds of things. So the Ruby Lou ... ...read more
