Anyway, I have a bit of interesting news I would like to share. Today in the mail I got the greatest gift! Some weeks ago I was browsing around the net and somehow stumbled upon Kathy Ireland's website. Well, besides being a supermodel,clothing designer, home decorating designer and all that retail stuff, Ms. Ireland is also a woman's advocate. Did you know that Ms. Ireland is an inspirational woman's speaker and also promotes supporting fair trade with 3rd world developing countries, specifically with woman run businesses? Well I didn't either! So I wrote a short note to Ms. Ireland and I told her how much I appreciated her work and supported her cause and told her that I too supported fair trade and tried to buy fair trade product whenever I could in my soap making business when I buy supplies. Well, I was very surprised to get a reply back from Ms. Ireland. And today, in my mailbox I received a personally autographed (in felt tip marker so it isn't a stamp) book that Ms. Ireland wrote entitled "Powerful Inspirations - Eight Lessons That Will Change Your Life" inside she wrote, "To Lisa, Thank you for your kind words & encouragement. God Bless you. Kathy Ireland" Well you could have knocked my over with the proverbial feather. I have always thought that she was very beautiful and wellspoken, but that she took the time to send me a book with an inscription. Holy wow! On the first page I read, was a bible verse. It just so happens to be one of my very favorite verses Proverbs 3:5; Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. I used to have a picture with that inscription on it years ago. That particular verse really means alot to me and I was quite surprised to find it right off the bat in her book. Somehow I have a feeling that this book will be very meaningful for me. I don't like to write alot about religion or my faith, but right now I really think that God is working through and with me. Too much is guiding me right now for it now to be so.
There is a new fiber magazine coming out on-line. The first issue is due out in July. The magazine is called Fiber Femmes.
