Africa Items Have Arrived!

You may have heard already but the Africa items are finally in!

I have blogged about our trip to Africa several times now and as I’m sure you already know I am BEYOND excited to finally put the items up on Platinum! All three items will go up THIS Wednesday! They will be found under the “Accessories” tab on the Platinum page.

(The ladies celebrating the aprons they made for the first time)

Gosh, I seriously LOVE these ladies. I miss them everyday! Can’t wait to be reunited with them in the future! I get weekly emails from Mary Sunshine (above, first gal on the left) updating me on the other ladies along with their sewing progress. Her emails NEVER end without a thank you for all that we have provided them with through this order of items. Each one of the ladies pictured above is now able to feed their families, send their children to school, or provide a safe home for their loved ones. We would love to be able to continue to provide for these ladies but in order to do that we need to sell the items they have sewn for us! So, don’t forget to stop by on Wednesday and purchase an item or two!

(Aren’t they beautiful?! )

If I could take all of you with me there to meet them I would, cause I know you guys would also fall in love with them! The amount of happiness and joy they have is overwhelming (in a good way). They have gone through so much (I can’t even imagine going through the things they have gone through and yet still function) and still exude such happiness!

Well, that’s it for now…stay tuned for my DIY project tomorrow and your chance to win a fabric stash!

These pictures are great. Beautiful ladies! Looking forward to Wednesday. I don’t wear aprons but have some friends who do and that will be a wonderful Christmas gift.
