So here is the scoop. Not only have I gotten my collection down, I have found the blue I was looking for. I had to dye the material myself but so far it is amazing! I am very happy with the results.
I have set a date to display my wears to you all and that will be July 25th. I know, I know you can’t wait. Me either!
Now I am working on my jewelry collection to go with my clothing line. I am excited. What can one create out of Pistachio shells hummmm? Wait and see. I have been blessed to have a great store here in the Champaign/Urbana area that not only recycles everything under the sun for the crafty folks like myself, but they also raise money for our school systems. How amazing is that! See Below.

There was a recent post that stated that they raised $10,000 for the Champaign Urbana school system. If that isn’t cool then I don’t know what is. The store is call, The I.d.e.a. Store! I will be using a lot of things from this store to create a fabulous jewelry collection for you all, and on top of that i will be helping them raise funds for our schools! That is what I like to call an all around good time.
