Organic '12 + Timeless Treasures + 19,000=First FREEBIE of the year!

Here we are in 2012. The freebies I loved the most in 2011 were the Organic '11 ones. It was so fun to get to know people from organic fabric companies and to meet others who believe in using items from nature in their work, especially Ling Yen (+ HERE) and Janet Setter (+ HERE). Their jewelry is wonderful!

Just a little recap of the companies that donated fabric for Organic '11 Freebies:

Harmony Art Organic Design + HERE + HERE + HERE + Ironing Board Covers + HERE + HERE

Daisy Janie
Amy Butler Organic Bedding
Stitch Simple
Swanky Swell
Birch Fabrics
Alabama Chanin
Les Indiennes

The generosity of these companies has me speechless. Truly. Especially Harmony and her overwhelming support of Organic '11. Did you know that I started Organic '11 as a nod to the movie Oceans 11? Tis true. The sequel is Oceans 12. I believe a sequel is in order around here too, hence Organic '12! :) Let's get started…

The bags are made from Timeless Treasures organic fabric with a Green Bag Lady silhouette stitched on a pocket on the front! And, in the pocket you will find a shopping list pad! Yay!
We also have 2 sweet fabric stacks up for grabs…
That is FIVE winners total! And, guess what, one the cute bags above will be number #19,000. Yes, quite a special bag it will be!

I plan to get back at doing some sewing. I haven't done any for a while but your pattern got me thinking about how I can use some of my fabric stash.

Good day to all! New goals for the new year - it should be continued journey to good purpose in past years, mostly. This is a concept that has a beginning but no end. But most importantly, it's never too late to start! My mother taught me when I was still quite small, to keep order and cleanliness both inside and outside, inside the person - that is the heart and soul.
And inside me there is always something going on, when I see people walking down the street and throw the remains of plastic bags and small pieces of paper out of the food right at your feet! A special containers in which garbage is placed and who is standing in the street, they see? but this small example, but very clear! I appeal to all, let us ourselves, each one of us would be a good example for the other, which is next! Like Teresa, who was able to organize a general matter and mention of her name is associated only with something good, generous, beautiful.

Sundays Child said...

Wow, what a generous give-away to start the new year. Love it! Anyway, one of my goals is to try Tai Chi again, now that my knee is repaired.

Keep up the great work, you guys are awesome.

Hugs, Julie Andrea

Elvira said...

Hi! My goal for this year is to stay close to the mother nature as long as I can. For this my goal I made a plan to go vegan to help animals and the Earth, buy whole foods and organic products just like your wonderful bags. With your help I hope that I would be one step closer to reaching my goal, thereby closer to the very nature!

This year I want to get better at collecting the litter that seems to be all over our roads, parking lots, parks, etc., instead of simply being annoyed by its existence. I already collect some, but I need to make a concerted effort to do more.

Dear Green Bag Lady and Friends,

Another give away!!!!
How exciting. Count me in.
I am committed to recycling as much aluminum as I can. And encourage other to do the same. It is such a simple way to help the environment and keep the world a cleaner place.
I want you to know how much I like the "Crypton" Bag I just received. It is nice and large, and the material is exceptional. You give away some awesome gifts. Thank you so much. Keep up the fine work you are doing. You really are making a difference in the world.
