I'm not closeminded...just see things better my way!

No school this entire week and our Saturday makeup day has also been canceled. It is not for me to question the wisdom of those making the decisions, but five straight days out is a first in my memory. Honestly, every minute of being at home has been pure joy....I was so meant to be June Cleaver or something! Anyway, one day we'll have exams, finish first semester and maybe I'll get in the mood to teach again.
Zeta Tau Alpha
My project today was sorority t-shirts for a former student, Mallory. I've been planning to add sorority items to the website, but just haven't gotten around to making samples. Had to do some research into the type of fabric used for the background letters (tackle twill) and then some digging to find a place to order (Twill USA). Fabric arrived yesterday and the experimenting started this morning. The fact that Mallory is a Zeta (my sorority!) made it all the more fun. Her Dad actually ordered the key fob as a stocking stuffer this past Christmas. I have several sets of Greek letters, traditional & funky...applique & embroidery...monstrous amounts of fabric...sooooo many options. Designs would look great on apparel, towels & other linens, totes, lunch bags, cosmetic bags...really anything from the Basement. If you need sorority/fraternity stuff, please keep me in mind! Time for a Netflix date with my favorite guy! Happy Weekend.
Am I really 50+? Life is good. My fortunes include an amazing husband, four fabulous daughters (2 birth, 2 bonus), two wonderful son-in-laws and three adorable grandsons. I am a teacher and owner of a home-based business. I started Basement Bags, a custom sewing/embroidery boutique, in 2005 and am working hard to monogram the world! I am usually too loud, always on a diet, passionate about sewing/embroidery, love to read, appreciate a good glass of White Zen, and live for school vacations. I am thankful for hair color and shapeware. I love 'Mexican dates' with my family, summers at the lake, thunder storms and sleeping late on Saturday! "Home" is my favorite place on earth.
