New Fabric For Boys-Oh Alright For Girls Too....

Lucy of Hot Scott Patterns specializes in patterns and fabric for boys! Lucy had my ♥ at "boys" It is so hard to find cute but not babyish fabric and patterns for boys, so if you've been lookin', look no further!
Lucy also has a new fabric coming out Pacific Trade Winds. It was originally meant for just the boys, but I think that the girls will be happy with this fabric too! Did I mention it's flannel? I love flannel, it is so soft & warm!

My Friend Reached Out, Now I am Reaching Out..

My friend Lindsay better known as "Shrimp Salad Circus" has been working on a serious project with a friend of hers. Lindsay reached out to me to help spread the word about Bridges Beyond Borders a non profit that mentors young refugees. I found that Lindsay is one amazing young woman, she is kind, compassionate and willing- so it comes to no surprise to me that she would help others. Now I am reaching out to you, can you help spread the word about Lindsay's non-profit Bridges Beyon Borders? The more we are educated the more we can help, so please head on over to Lindsay's blog to learn how you can become a mentor, more about her great cause and/or donate if your able.

Lindsay said:
I have partnered with a local middle school, and we will have 15 mentors and 15 refugee students for our first semester. I am hoping to provide each student with a brand new backpack stuffed with every single item on their school supply list, and I plan to have an event every couple months to bring the refugee students, their families, and my mentors together. I have found a sponsor, Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning, to provide lots of books so that our refugee children have something to take home with them - something to call their own. These children will have the college-student mentor in their lives for an entire year, boosting their confidence, their academic achievement, and their ability to adjust to a new culture.

Are you one of those ladies?

I sure am. I am a tugger, shifter, lifter, adjuster etc. I am one of those women who will hurry and duck where nobody{i least i thought} was looking to adjust my bra. I actually hate wearing a bra because I seriously don't think that I have the right size/fit for my body. When I spot the cute bra on the rack- I keep on walking because I know that somehow it isn't going to work, wether it is too tight, to loose, they are spilling over, or my back fat is bulging out. Should shopping for a bra really be this hard? I think not!

If your like me, today may be your lucky day!

Playtex recently launched a Playtex Bra Makeover a site where women can go to apply for a bra makeover or nominate a friend. If chosen, the winner will be flown to New York to receive a Bra Makeover with style expert Alison Deyette.
