I have taken on a challenge. I will wear a dress every day in December in order to raise money and awareness for the International Justice Mission. To support me in my campaign visit my Dressember page. I will post updates here on my blog and document each day’s dress on Instagram and Pinterest.
Dressember is a collaborative movement leveraging fashion and creativity to restore dignity to all women.
Dressember uses fashion to advocate for women who’ve been exploited for their femininity. As women take on the creative challenge of wearing a dress for the 31 days of December, they are advocating for the inherent dignity of all women. Dressember exists to inspire and empower a global community of like-minded women who are locking arms to face one of the greatest injustices of our time.
The heart of Dressember is freedom– that every woman has the right to live a vibrant and autonomous life.
The summer holidays are almost over. Here is a glimpse of what one member of our family spent much of his summer doing.
It is bitterly cold here again so I tried a trick I had seen and heard about, freezing bubbles. I made bubble mix then braved the -20°C temperature for a few minutes at a time to blow bubbles in our snow and ice covered back yard.
Most bubbles shatter while they are in the air or as soon as they hit a surface. Some float in the air long enough to freeze before they land on the snow.
A17 made melted snowman cookies for the bake sale at school this week.
She used a sugar cookie recipe, sliced marshmallows for heads, candy covered sunflower seeds for noses and various colours of icing.
They all sold. Not suprising.
