Happy New Year!

It's officially 2011 now. Wow! It has been quite a year for Green Bag Lady. We have had SEVERAL events. So many, I have lost count. Many freebies (thanks for all the comments) and have given away about 6000 bags! 6000. Oh my. 6000.

An incredibly HUGE thank you to the following people:

•All the Bagettes, XOXOXO to all of you. Truly, you humble me.

•My wonderful father (aka Bagette Dad) who still ships and funds most of this project. I love you, dad.

Harmony, you are the best and have donated SO much fabric. You are a true "woman of cloth" and an even truer friend.

Amy, what can I say, the fabric is amazing and always so very much appreciated.

Elna, the machines that keep this whole thing running. Daily gratitude.

Les Indiennes, lovely fabric + the lovely Mary Mulcahy, thank you.

Tennessee Arts Commission, the grant was much needed, thank you!

Swavelle/Mill Creek, new this year, thank you Meltem for finding us and sending us beauty!

•The many of YOU who were willing to pack and foot the bill for shipping stacks of boxes of fabric to us! Thanks!

•And of course, Pixel, Bongo, Lane, Emma, and Namemaker, sincerest appreciation to all of you.

•Last, but definitely not least, my dear readers. . .you have no idea now much I appreciate you. I read all of your comments and savor them. I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy lives to stop by, read, and leave a few words behind. You are the best. Truly. I look forward to our 2011 journey together.

I'll see you back here tomorrow when I post a very special 2011 FREEBIE. Until then, good night. Teresa

Happy New Year to you too! I love your blog and visit almost everyday. I have been directed towards many other wonderful blogs, sites and articles through you and love reading all about your bags that travel the world from other readers. Thank you for a little bit of internet sunshine (it's been a tough year). I use my GBL bag everywhere I go, it's been about two years since I received it and I still get comments on it! And I'm proud to tell everyone where it came from, I am a total GBL groupie! Happy 2011 to you and yours!
