Learning to sew thanks to my daughter.

We've started to learn how to sew around these parts and I am very excited about it. Honestly, home economics from high school was where I "learned" how to sew however it's been over 20 years, so I'm relearning the process. My mother was a wonderful seamstress.

This weekend has turned out to be a terribly sad weekend with all of the rain that has fallen on the Greater Baton Rouge areas.  Most of these areas are locations that had never flooded before therefore did not have flood insurance.  It will be a battle with the insurance companies as well as the federal government for financial assistance if Katrina was any kind of precursor. While it isn't much, we hand make worry stones and package them with short simple little poems to encourage calming energies while facing a scary world.  We would like to send these out...

Serenity Now!

With back to school kicking off for us in the New Orleans area, everyone is starting to get back into the school routine.  This includes getting the kids on to the bus on time, doing homework, and remembering where the school zones are.  School time is a great opportunity for our children to grow academically as well as socially but for at least the next week, craziness will ensue in our lives.   Our solution for that is our Serenity Now Kit.  This gift comes with a Serenity Bottle that you shake gently to stir the glitter then watch it...
