Happy International Women’s Day!

Today we celebrate with bursts of color and pattern to honor women of all colors, shapes, sizes, creeds, and backgrounds. While not a perfect system, American women are very fortunate to reside in a country that leads the world in opportunities for advancement. There are many countries yet where women have little access to clean drinking water, a balanced diet, education, a choice of career or even their spouse. For me today is both a day to reinforce gratitude, as well as a reminder that there is much work to be done for our sisters here and abroad.

Handmade Mimi Yarn Bomb for International Women's Day
As part of this celebration of color and diversity, I also want to shout out local Los Angeles boss lady, homemaker and crafter, Michelle Villemaire, whose creative story honors so many great women in history. Her Yarn Bomb Project highlights their philanthropic work and generosity, and with help from family and friends she will yarn bomb Los Angeles in hopes of teaching children and others how art can be used to help and make a difference for those less fortunate.

This year’s Project Yarn Bomb details:

On March 8th, the yarn bomb will grace 33 trees along a stretch of Monument Street, just north of Sunset Boulevard. Each tree is named and dedicated to a different woman in American history.

After two weeks, the yarn pieces will be collected and turned into blankets to donate to a local shelter dedicated to helping women and their families transition out of homelessness. You can learn more about Michelle and her awesome work on her blog: Home Made Mimi.
