Free to be girls

All girls should be " Free to be girls" , to be free to make positive choices for their futures and happiness. I'm so excited about our "Free to be girls" campaign. Proceeds will go to supporting hands-on organizations with proven success in providing rescue , education , and empowerment to survivors of abusive exploitation and trafficking, creating a place where girls are "free to be girls.
If you haven't watched the documentary Half the sky , it's a must ! The women helping women are so fantastic and inspiring , we wanted to help in our small way . I'm so into buying things this holiday season that support a cause .

I'm on Instagram

I'm on Instagram!! So come follow me for more up to date stuff. I pretty much can only do one social media thing at a time, I know , I know they are all connected , but really I'd rather be sewing, cooking, talking or running than looking at a screen.
 So right now @justbepurses is the one that gets the most updates. Fall is here and we've gotten in some AMAZING new fabrics.  Again couldn't do it without all your support!!

So for our 50 th Birthday we decided to meet up in my sisters neck of the woods. She's lived in Southeast Asia for the last 20 yrs. So was an excellent travel planner. We stayed in small islands off of Thailand that you could walk across in 20 min. I drove on the opposite side of the rode through Malaysia , ate the yummiest curries and dishes,swam in the warmest oceans. In Singapore saw saw so many different cultures and religions coexist in a beautiful way. It was an amazing trip. I did get to bring back some fun trims , purses and textiles. I've listed a few in the shop. These Bags from the Banjara clothing is so rich and beautiful. I have fabrics made with beaded embroidery bits from Sari's i can't wait to make purses out off. Traveling is so inspiring. so grateful that I could have this opportunity.
