November 27 - Happy Thanksgiving


Julie says..."Thanksgiving...hands down my favorite holiday! Perfect American yumminess shared with friends from around the world. We all nearly cried when Liam Byrnes from the UK expressed what he was thankful for… America and what a gift her people and culture are to the world. It touched us deeply!"



November 20 - Ta da! It's finally here!

Our online shop has officially opened and you can now purchase our new 2014 product line!

Proudly South African! Products sewn by mothers in Africa working hard to provide for their families. When you buy hand-made products, YOU create jobs in Africa and empower moms.

Great gifts! Need it by Christmas? Please order in the next 7 days (by November 26th to allow for production and shipping time from Africa to the US) to arrive in time for Christmas.

Last day to place orders is December 4th (for international shipping reasons).

UPDATE: is no longer taking orders for 2014! Our shop is busy filling holiday orders and will re-open in February of 2015. Thank you to everyone who supported and empowered these amazing moms in Africa...working hard to provide for their families.

November 18 - Ostrand Virtual Baby Shower

Hello! My name is Erin Jensen. I am Julie's sister-in-law, married to her brother Ken.

I was thrilled to hear that Julie and Karl would be having a boy after three beautiful girls!

I want to celebrate and support the Ostrand's together...even though we are all miles apart.

So I would like to invite you to the Ostrand’s Virtual Baby Shower!

How does this work?

After having 3 girls…the Ostrands have most baby things and all things “pink," but they are in need of BOY CLOTHES (NEW OR USED)! See details...
