Monday, Monday, Monday

Happy Monday, friends! Hope you all had a rad weekend. Things have been quiet around here and it's all out of pure laziness, I'm not even going to lie. My apt is a mess and I just can't stand to be in there because its such a mess. I don't even know where to begin! Sigggghhh. I didn't want to be home last week so I picked up extra shifts at work just to avoid it. Yikes. I'm going to do better this week I promise. I'm just gonna come up with a plan of attack and hopefully get enough done so I can set up my drafting table this weekend. I need a crafting place. We'll see how that goes.

Now lets talk about this amazing necklace from 31Bits. It's completely handmade! 31bits is an organization that empowers women in Uganda giving them the necessary education to be able to use their skills to provide for their families. 31bits also offers these women healthcare while they're training for their program and everything is funded through product sales. And to make it even cooler part of the necklaces are made out of recycled paper! I didn't even know until I bought the necklace that 31bits organization operates out of the city I live in! I don't know why but knowing they're local to me makes it that more special. I think because I always hear of cool organizations and they're always in another state. I want to feel like contemporaries in my area care about things too. I don't know. Does that even make sense? I like knowing that I could drop by their office any time and ask questions about their products or their mission or whatever. It sets the mind at ease. Either way, check out the 31Bits page for more info about their mission and their products. 

On a parting note: remember when I said I loved jellies? I went out and bought two more pairs. Haha. 

the trademark schlump.

  1. hahaha ok opting to work just to stay out of your messy apartment is kinda bad. just get to cleaning, girl! and that necklace is beautiful! and it's even more amazing that it's for such a great cause. I just wish it was in my budget :(

    ALSO, i know want to buy those jellies. do you have the white pair, too? I kind of want to buy both the black and white but im not sure if the white would look good in person. let me know if you do/ your thoughts!
