New Mexico Bag Event

I sent some bags to Bagette Jessie in New Mexico for her to give out at her local farmer's market at a kids table. She had the kids paint (!!!) on the bags. How cool is that? I've had kids draw on bags with crayons and markers but not paint. The kids are so cute and sweet. Look at the great card that Jessie sent with signatures from the littles. Made my day! Thanks Jessie, keep up the great work! Teresa

Hey! I meant to send these to you sooner, sorry. Our bag painting at the Roswell farmer's market was super successful. We had over 60 kids paint bags and I gave away a lot to parents that day as well. Thanks for making this possible!

ANNOUNCING: Green Bag Lady South Carolina!

I haven't had the privilege of announcing TWO chapters in the same week. Yippeee! Look at these lovely ladies in South Carolina and the great bags they have made. Even some super cute Junior Bagettes! Awesome! Thanks Rebecca for taking the initiative in SC! Teresa

Sorry for the delay, but here's a pic from our first meeting! So from left to right: my sister Julie and her daughter Joanna, me, friend and fellow girl scout leader Anna, and then longtime family friend Rachel and her daughter Jocelyn.

We'll get better as we go, we were all a little rusty.

Preying Mantis on hubby's truck. Wow!
Why we don't need bin liners. (thanks Harmony)

Cool "Pay it Forward" bag program. (thanks Wendy)

Very cool! Maybe pillows in purple for Big Girl's dorm room??

So cute.

I'm both fascinated and disturbed.


I feel like this week has been long, no idea why, I was just always off on days. I thought Tuesday was Thursday, etc. Why?? Looking forward to a patio pizza party tomorrow night and a tennis tourney fundraiser on Sunday, you? Have a fabulous weekend! XOXO--Teresa

To try!

Pretty things.

I'm looking forward to a mellow weekend. Hubby and Little Man are going camping so it will just be me and Little Girl. Love hanging out with her sweet soul. I need to get some sewing done AND clean up my sewing space. It's a crazy mess. YOU? XOXO--Teresa
