Eco-Chic Events 4/1 – 4/3

It’s a busy weekend in NEO in the most eco-chic way possible! Quite a few fun and unique opportunities for you to explore your eco-chic side and support some local causes and businesses.

I’m super excited for my volunteer orientation over at the Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary in Ravenna this weekend. Working with animals has always brought me joy so now I can combine it with my obsession with farm animals, especially baby ones!

I also need to finish up my Amy Butler Rain Coat…This is the most difficult item that I’ve tried to create but the pattern is easy to follow so I’m hoping it turns out wearable. A slow but steady process…

So between the raincoat and volunteer stuff, I’m hoping to hit up a few of these events!
