You still have until 9:30 tonight to take a guess at the riddle! Click here to answer the question,
“What does Amy have in common with an elephant?”.
Just so you know, your comments are crackin’ me up. I am loving it!
Here are pictures of the Timbali bag that can be won.
This is the market bag, along with a coin purse. The market bag is simply made and really large, perfect to take to the grocery store with you!
It was made by Jabu Simolane
This is Jabu’s story:
Jabu Simelane is 40 years old and the mother of 4 children. She was widowed in 2004 and also cares for 2 of her husbands’ children from another marriage, who’s mother has already passed away. Money she earns by sewing bags for Timbali Crafts is the only source of income for the family. Jabu has sewn since 2002 and worked at the care center with orphans. She saw it as such a good way to help care for orphans in her community. She knows that if she passes away, her children will also be orphans, and she would want them cared for.

I have more of these bags for sale and in multiple styles. I don’t want to sell them online because I learned with the scarves, it takes a lot of time and I don’t have extra time right now, but if someone wants to stop by and see what I have, feel free. I am also hoping to feature these and products like this at a home show this Spring. (Start thinking Mother’s Day?!) :)
Keep guessing, it is helping my being snowed in with two babies go so much faster!!!
And to crack you up…Check out those teeth. The Littles only have their canines on top and a few on bottom. It is so funny!
