Thank You!!! + More New Kantha Throws

THANK YOU!!!

I shared onfacebook andinstagram that last weekend, with our anniversary sale, we sold blankets equalling ~2,000 hours of time spent hand-stitching! In traditional work terms (40 hrs/week x 50 weeks/year) that is one *year*'s worth of work! Unbelievable!!

In reality at Basha in Bangladesh, that has meantnew starts andconsistent work anddignity to life and areason for beingfor many more than one woman this year.

We are hoping that this momentum carries throughout the holiday season that we can continue to facilitate this work as well as getting fabulous blankets into the hands of people who will love them.

And on that note...

 

New Throws!

This may become a bit of a familiar refrain in the coming weeks, but... we have new throws (+ three new minis)!

The reality of this time of year is that a LOT of shopping happens! And, with unique items, it means we have to do a lot of replacement, and have new blankets coming in all the time. Very fun!

Intentionality simply means the act of being deliberate, purposeful

If you are a committed budgeter, there is no question of being intentional; you probably account for every dollar. But, nobody — even if you track every receipt — spends every single dollar how they wish to (dishwasher repairs, new socks, & lost library books come to my mind...).

Even so, we can be thoughtful about how money leaves our wallet, slides onto our credit card, decreases our bank balance… we can be deliberate & purposeful with even the smallest financial decisions.
