My name is Terri. I live in Durango, CO. Yes it's beautiful here! I'm lucky enough to travel during the fall and winter months to CA and AZ. I'm married and have a terrific fun and loving Golden Retriever named Toby. He's my love!! My husband's kinda nice as well. ;-)

I have a full time job for a great company, I play tennis and I love to do what I can to help mother earth.

About 11 years ago my family used many disposable products at home. Including lots of paper towels, plastic plates and paper napkins at mealtime. This is common practice for many households. It’s convenient but it definitely contributes to all sorts of environmental problems. F…

About 11 years ago my family used many disposable products at home. Including lots of paper towels, plastic plates and paper napkins at mealtime. This is common practice for many households. It’s convenient but it definitely contributes to all sorts of environmental problems. Fortunately, it’s easy to make changes in this area, and every little change helps to make a difference.

Cloth Napkins was our first transition, replacing paper napkins and paper towels with cloth napkins. When I first considered this, I remember using cloth napkins as a kid for special occasions. So I figured why not use them for everyday meals. I made some simple and cute everyday cloth napkins for the family. They worked great, were fun to use, saved money and did a small part to help Mother Earth.

Next, I decided to take this a step further. Why not use vintage - upcycled fabrics to create cloth napkins? The materials are beautiful, soft and a great way to give back and help the community. This is how CHOW with ME was born. I search out beautiful vintage fabrics and create cloth napkins for everyday use as well as specials occasions and parties. I give back to the community as I buy from local thrift stores and second hand shops that benefit local charities and I donate several bundles of my napkins to charities for fund raisers.

My job requires that I travel, so it's a great way to shop for different fabrics all over the USA. It's a fun way to give back and I LOVE what I'm doing.

Thanks for reading!
