New Year to You and You and You~ You know who you are!

It happens... the year goes by and you're wondering where it went. Not me! I know where it went and what I was doing - just don't ask me to prove it! Whatever am I talking about. Well, for me, this was my first year truly, madly, deeply making every effort available to be ever present and aware of my environment, what I'm drawing into my life and where my thoughts head when I'm not staying present. Should that make no sense to the reader... that's okay... it's all about me this time! Oh wait, it's always about me. hahahha... truth be told, it's about us a l l .... we are one... connected in ways we don't even begin to realize. I applaud you for nodding right now.

It's the New Year - You know what to do!  be amazing

Pop Up - Collective Upcycle "Brilliant Mix of Energy"

Seriously, it happens, people step out of their comfort zones and make things happen. Then they take on a life of their own and the next thing you know . . . a creative energy emerges! Okay, this is my take on a group of local talented artists.  I have had the pleasure of participating in Collective Upcycle Pop Ups! 

You'll want to check out the links provided in this brief post to really get a feel for what a Pop Up is. . . when they come about . . . and how they evolve from a vacant store front to a shoppers delight!

Beginning Thursday, November 17th with an Artists Open House (6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m) (kind of a meet & greet with wine & tasty treats) - Collective Upcycle  -  holiday pop-up will be open  12pm - 8 pm, Thursdays through Sundays from November 17th to December 24th. 13226 Shaker Square,Cleveland 44120, (between Yours Truly and Fire Food & Drink).

It takes a Village (so its been said) - but I tell you that Nicole, Renee, Megan and Lauren - make things happen!  Introduce yourself (ask to meet when you stop and shop) and shake their hand to draw in some of that amazing energy!

How can you help you say?

* to upcycle is to creatively alter or repurpose leftover materials in a way that changes their use & adds value to them.

The Dog Days are Over . . .

I know, what does that even mean? The dog days are over! Well, that's the song playing while posting these NEW designs for the fabulous organic lavender dryer sachets.

It's a great tune I came across by Florence and the Machine. Goes something like. . .

Happiness hit her like a train on a track
Coming towards her still no turning back
 . . .
Leave all your love and your longing behind
You can't carry it with you if you want to survive
 . . .

And I never wanted anything from you
Except everything you had and what was left after that too
 . . .

The dog days are over
The dog days are done
Can you hear the horse?
So you better run
