Bought an organic tea today and this was under the cap. It's called "Sweet Leaf Tea" and it's pretty good. The packaging is so amazing. The more I work on packaging for my products, the more I notice packaging in stores!

My mom and I went to the New York Gift Show, NY NOW. One of my favorite Fair Trade fashion companies, Mata Traders, was there and I am so looking forward to their new collections. I also met some new fashion companies that seem to have a very promising future. My mom and I went to get ideas for the farm market, but we were also noticing a gap in the industry. We've been brainstorming some ideas and it looks like I now have a new project! I'm sure I will be posting about it in the weeks to come.

I started my "fall wardrobe"! I wanted a nice pair of shorts to wear with tights and boots for a few years and just decided to make them. I just need to sew some buttons on them, photograph them, and they are done!

I was sewing my shorts and had work the 22nd, so it was a pretty boring day….except for breaking a plate. I slipped on the stairs and the plate went all the way to the bottom.

Made delicious oatmeal today. Apple, cinnamon, raisin! Eating healthy can be pretty easy.

Home to work on the farm and was greeted by these beautiful flowers at the back door.

The farm harvested like, 200 lbs of garlic. I helped clean about 10 lbs. This is how a farm girl gets tan!

 

In other news:

Earlier this year, I got an instagram account for the photo effects. I stopped using it because I hate instagramed photos on twitter since it takes you to another window to see the image (through the iphone). I don't know what made me start up again, but my instagram is in use once again! I'm still learning instgram but my username is trish_mcl. 

Anyone remember a few years ago the big thing was "pic comment for pic comment??" Well I will totally "follow you" if you "follow me". Haha I couldn't resist! Social media is still a mystery to me.
