Bagette Loretta!

This is Bagette Loretta. She's 93. 93!!! She comes and helps my group here in Colorado. Isn't she adorable? Look at the cool jean bag she made for me. She was helping to stuff pet beds and came across an old pair of jeans a neighbor had dropped off. She asked if she could have them and came back with this bag. I hope I'm as lively, spry and productive as Loretta when I'm 93! Teresa

Kenya bans plastic bags! Teresa

Girl Scouts!

I love this! I had the cutest troop of Brownie Girl Scouts at my house last week. They were simply adorable and SO excited to make bags! Each girl made 2 bags, one that they colored on and one that they sewed the handles to the bag. They did a great job and went away with the mission to educate their families about reusable bags and using the bags they made!


 Look how cute and creative they are!!!

And, each of the girls was awarded a Green Bag Lady patch for their efforts to sew onto their uniforms.
Squeee! LOVE! Teresa

Tear jerker.

I really need to use my spiralizer more.

Crazy, man!

Wow! Little Man would go nuts.

My kids would love this.

Finished this book recently. Have you read it? So good.

Go go go, that's how I feel. After last weekend in MN with Big Girl looking at the University, then back here to get some sleep before the week started. Every day has been a zoo! Yesterday I had a cute little Girl Scout troop here to make bags. So fun! I'll share photos next week. Last night, another U of MN event in Denver. I think that Big Girl is very close to making a decision to go there. Yay! I'll keep you posted. We now have company in town for the weekend. I'm getting a much needed massage this afternoon. What's happening in your corner of the earth? Teresa

Minnesota Girl Scouts!

Green Bag Lady loves Girl Scouts!! In fact, I'm hosting a troop of 15 girls at my house this afternoon to make bags. YAY! My cousin had her troop make bags last year for cookie deliveries. LOVE! 

My sister contacted me a few months ago asking if I could get patches made for her troop to earn for making bags. YES! I love love love that idea. So much so I got 500 patches made by The Studio. The Studio was SO great. I got to approve every step of the process and I'm thrilled with how they turned out. We can use them on bags, caps, shirts, and of course for Girl Scouts/Boy Scouts. Yipee! 

Thanks sister Jane for the great idea. Do you have a troop that would like to earn badges? Contact me for more info. Teresa

Here are some photos my sister sent of her troop making bags. Huge smile!

Our troop, 30042, worked on bags today. They did all of the steps except cutting & ironing/ marking for handles. Dad gave me a bunch of bags that needed handles.  I cut out a bunch of fabric I had to make into buckets. We've still got a ways to go, but I think we'll have a bunch to give away at our events coming up.

As you know, I'm not the best photographer, but here are a few of the event.  Enjoy!

Big Girl as Mrs. Lark in her high school production of Mary Poppins last weekend. The entire cast and performance was amazing! So proud. 

And this!

Looks tasty!

Fun + easy DIY.

I could live there.

Oh man, Little Girl would be in heaven.

Calling all quilter! What to make with a quilt top! No, it's NOT a quilt! My fav.

Posting a little early as I'm off to Minnesota for a brief stay. Big Girl was admitted into the Honors Program at the U of MN and wants to attend the Showcase tomorrow. Since I'm an alum, this will be fun for me too! This is her top college pick at the moment but I'm thinking it's the one. What's on your agenda? XOXO--Teresa
