I love these fabric cases from Uganda! We use them for makeup,eye glasses, school supplies, hair elastics, sewing kit and so much more. However they are used they are making a difference in the lives of those who handcrafted these. Also these beauties are on sale online! (Link in bio)
Some decisions are hard to make. Silver or brass. Grey or black. Either way you can wear this confident that you look good while doing good. This is world changing fashion. Made by hand in Kenya using recycled bone and cowhorn along with metals. Beautiful!
Today is a holiday here called family day. And we are celebrating families worldwide! We work so families can stay together, send their children to school and meet their needs by earning an income. World changing fashion.
I thought since there has been new friends added recently that I should do a little #Fridayintroduction . So if we haven't met yet - virtually or irl - I'm Krista and introducing myself is proving to be more awkward than anticipated. I launched JustOne back in late 2012 and it's provided me with more joy and friends-turned-family than I ever imagined. It's an honour to do this work. . . But enough mush. Here's a few fun random facts about me. . . Family... I have been married to my college sweetheart for 20 years. I have two daughters who are 12 and 14 and a third daughter on the way. No - I am not pregnant! We are working towards finishing our adoption in Haiti of our sweet youngest girl. . . I love YouTube and can lose hours to pandas, penguins, James corden, 73 questions on vogue, movie trailers and anything and everything in between. The more ridiculous the better. . . I am terrified of flying. But my love of travel trumps my fear of flying every time. But I still say my goodbyes "just in case" every flight. . . I have an unhealthy affection for milli vanilli and Rick Astley. Seriously. They just make me happy. . . Nearly every surface in my home has stacks of books on it. We all love reading and always have a few books on the go! (Any must read titles I should know about?) . . I love road trips. A lot. I've driven much of the United States and Canada and feel like I've barely scratched the surface. . . I love connecting with people so much. So please let's connect! Leave a comment or ask me a question or pop me an email!
Choker? Long necklace? Bracelet wrap? It's a "choose your own adventure" with this versatile necklace with fabric backing allowing you to decide how you want to wear it! And anyway you wear it you can be confident of this - you are doing good, while looking good. That's world changing fashion.
This necklace always make me think of blue skies and sunshine. Great piece to beat the February blues. And wear it knowing you're making a difference in the lives of the former child soldiers who handcrafted this recycled paper necklace. World changing fashion.
I am getting ready to go back to Kenya and Uganda in a couple weeks and can not wait to see everyone again. This time I am beyond excited that my husband and two daughters are coming also. I took this photo last year while in Uganda as it made me think of my own two daughters. And now they'll be there in person! My daughters are avid readers and when we asked a local school what they could use and they replied books - my book loving girls jumped on board! They've been busy collecting funds to purchase books and school supplies in Africa. A couple years ago we committed to try to only buy things in country and so we will be purchasing the items there - not only will we be supporting African businesses but buying exactly what they need.

After a busy week of set up, prep, attending and taking down for the @cangift Toronto gift fair we are looking forward to the weekend! Although we left the tradeshow with not only many new amazing clients - but a renewed passion for justone and inspiration! As much as I'm excited for the weekend to recover I'm also looking forward to getting back to things next week! Thanks for everyone's support and enthusiasm!
We have had such a great time the first few days of the @cangift #togiftfair2017 Love catching up with past clients and hearing how well JustOne is doing in their stores. And so thankful for all the new clients right across Canada - new stores from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Quebec, Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan and BC. Canadians love world changing fashion!
It's going to be a great day at the @cangift #togiftfair2017 - I mean I found fizz candies to add to my candy bowl at the booth (12240). Doesn't get much better than that...candy from my childhood. Mmmm.
