I'm sorry I missed my give away this week. Life kind of caught up with me and I needed to get some work done. I have taken all the small pieces of fabric in my closet and turned them into these beautiful skirts. They make great gifts because the price is right and are so easy to wear, so sizing is simple. Little girls love them! Quantity is very limited.
Also, I want to talk about Cornucopia. Cornucopia not only means horn of plenty but it is a horn of plenty that never runs out. I have gone thru really hard times during the last few years after losing my business. Last summer, I found out what it's like to be an out of work single mom in NY. Very difficult. We struggle here but I know the best thing to do when your struggling is to give. I want my experience to help others. I am not quite there yet financially. At Christmas I will donate 5% of what I make on Etsy to help PS . I heard a woman share about this school. A teacher there, she has to pay for all her supplies and will go without a salary. She said that sometimes the free lunch the kids get in school is the only food they have all day. These are the things I have to remember to know that I have a pretty damn good life and my stuggles are nothing compared to others.
I just had an idea, maybe this weeks give away could be a contest. I have no idea how to make those little side buttons. Make me a button for Cornucopia and the chosen design will win the skirt of your choice.
