      The Beauty of Knitting

      The Beauty of Knitting

      “Properly practiced, knitting soothes the troubled spirit, and it doesn’t hurt the untroubled spirit either. Elizabeth Zimmerman

       According to Mental Health America not only does knitting bring you, it also has mental health benefits.

       Here are some of the benefits:

      • Lowered blood pressure
      • Reduced depression and anxiety
      • Distraction from chronic pain
      • Increased sense of wellbeing
      • Reduced loneliness and isolation

      I keep a knitting project going all year long. Knitting truly does relaxes me and it’s such wonderful creative outlet.

      Our Gretna tote is the perfect bag to keep your knitting project organized.

      It measures 15”H x 14” W and features two large interior pockets.

       Even if you don’t knit, it’s still an amazing bag.

      Are you prepared for winter?

      Are you prepared for winter?

      Be prepared for winter and still be stylish.

      I am always of the mind set to be prepared for any old thing. You never know what winter will bring. 

      Whether you run out of gas, get a flat tire, or slip off a snowy road, a car emergency kit can help you get back on the road safely and quickly.

      The National Safety Council, AAA and The Old Farmers Almanac are all great resources for cold weather tips. Be careful and drive safe.

      Here are a few suggestions to put in your kit:

      • Ice scraper
      • Hats, gloves, scarf
      • Umbrella
      • Flash light/extra batteries
      • Snack, energy bars, water
      • First Aid Kit
      • Wool socks
      • Small wool blanket
      • matches

      Companions for Heroes

      Companions for Heroes

      I believe in saving the lives of veterans and dogs, which is why we donate 10% of each sale to Companions for Heroes. It touches my heart to think of all the lives they have so deeply touching.

      Their vision is to help every American Hero and save every shelter or rescue animal from euthanasia.

      Here is a little more information about their amazing work.

      Companions for Heroes (C4H) provides companion dogs obtained from shelters, rescues and humane societies, who might otherwise be euthanized, free of charge to active duty military personnel, military veterans, first responders, military spouses and children, and Gold Star Families recovering from the psychological challenges they suffered during service to our country. C4H increases public awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other challenges confronting our country’s heroes; and rally’s support for animal welfare and the adoption of shelter and/or rescue animals.

      Making masks

      Making masks

      I never thought I could sew 450 masks. Most of the masks have been donated. I give them out to friends, neighbors, my vet, my pastors, my UPS driver, the ladies at the post office, family members, anywhere I see someone in need of one. It's the least I can do. When I make them I pray over them and ask God to bless and protect the person wearing it.

      If I can get someone to smile and let them know that we care, it truly is better to give than receive. 

      The Launch

      The Launch

      My first blog post.

      I love totes!

      Why are they so popular?
      • They are easy to carry.
      • They help you stay organized.
      • They are comfortable.
      • THE MOST IMPORTANT REASON….they enhance your style.

      When I design a bag, I always consider where you’re going, what you’ll be wearing and what you’ll bring along. I envision the whole scenario; not just the tote. Each bag has it’s own special story. You give the bag life with your story and your unique style.

      “Make every day a new opportunity to change your bag, it may change your life.”

       Enjoy your tote and enjoy your day. Cheri
