I prewash everything that will be upcycled in a perfume-free and dye-free detergent.

My shop is a smoke-free and pet-free environment with 2 middle school boys who love to tell their friends what I do.

Please check out my blog at http://jeansandasweatshirt.blogspot.com/
where I talk about my life with my family and the attempt to get organized and no longer be computer illiterate as well as other things. I've been told that I "tell it like it is". Some people would call me blunt.
