This Kenyan woman recycles plastic waste into bricks that are stronger than concrete. I love this! How incredible to take waste and turn it into a useful product. My Green Bag Lady heart is singing. Read the entire article HERE. Cheers! Teresa
So here I am at 52 today and tiny me at maybe 6, not sure. I went to MN this past weekend to visit Bagette Dad in the hospital. He seems to be on the upswing today but had a rough week last week. Please keep the thoughts and prayers coming, they are needed and greatly appreciated. He is getting great care and me and my siblings are all taking turns to be with him. What a crazy trip around the sun this last year has been, here's hoping that the next one is much more calm. XOXO to you all! Teresa
PS-If you would like to send Bagette Dad a card (he LOVES the ones he has gotten), please email me for the address: teresa(at)vanhatten(dot)com
Look at all these great things that Olive makes from SCRAPS! I'm inspired to start going through my scrap bin. They look lovely Olive, keep up the fabulous sewing! TeresaI've been making some pouches and bags for community with excess fabric and left over blocks and quilts.

What pretty bags that Janet has made! I'm sure the people who get these are thrilled to pieces. Keep up the sewing Janet, you are making a difference--TeresaI just made 20 more bags, 11 of which I am giving to Mountain Peak Life for the volunteers, cooks, etc. who provide (and deliver) meals to the senior citizens in Nederland. I am one of those recipients.
Wowweee! Look at all these cute bags from Jessie and the fabulous dress she made herself too. Such talent in one person! Keep up the great work making and handing out those bags. Love it! Teresa
