Sara Lee Parker Textiles is an Athens, GA-based company that creates hand screen-printed organic textiles.
She was also featured in the Georgia edition of Southern Living Magazine this June, so if you live in Georgia, check it out! Parker runs her textile company with her husband, and she was kind enough to do a little Q&A with us about what she does, why she does it, and what working so closely with your husband is like.

So, how's a gal supposed to make a burlap fabric box? Fear not! I've dug around and found some resources for burlap, so you don't have to do the legwork

If you're anything like me, the New Year makes me want to reorganize and clean! Often times I go through my clothes to see what fits, what needs to be "retired," etc. If you can't refashion your wardrobe like Becky shared yesterday, there are even more options! Hang on to your old t-shirts to try out these amazing projects! For example, perhaps there are some shirts that you would love to keep for sentimental reasons, or one that has a really fun pattern, but just doesn't fit anymore-- these are the perfect shirts to recycle! The only problem you will have is deciding which one of these projects you should try first!
