Join Me Live In a Virtual Pop Up

Your invite Socialize Ship See and Shop

Last year around this time I made a choice to put my plans aside and help local businesses make the transition to a virtual business model. 

Today, Sunday March 14th I will boldly take on an online popup! Please join us!  Your support, participation and feedback will be greatly appreciated. 

Growth comes with awareness.  Awareness builds when information gets absorbed into the mind, slowly. Every little blurb in a magazine, a mention in a newspaper begins with a comment from a friend, a display on a timeline, a text to a sister, a message to a colleague’s inbox.

Wanna help a sistah build awareness? Then-

You do have to say "going" for a little something extra!

How to Sew A Well Fitted Contoured Face Mask

Here is a free contoured face mask pattern for your use!

I get concerned when I see mask that gape and do not fit teh face correctly! Use with dust and hobbies is one thing, but when it comes to your health we need to aim for the best fit possible, even if it is not 100%! Homemade mask are an option but I hope you make contoured version that fits more snug.

The above is an 8x10 image that should be printed at 8x10 (use your photo printing dialog to print it to size! If you have no access to a printer we will release a instructional to help your create you own version via a simple DIY coordinate plotting hack.

In my opinion contoured mask are better option to a rectangular mask. Especially when looking to create your own mask that “cover the entire front (that extends to the chin or below) and sides of the face, in a pinch this one also has a side feature that can be tightened or loosened for a closer custom fit. It is fitted an average adult head and can be adjusted. I created this from scratch prompted by my concerns and observing how many wore mask without adequate coverage. I have used slash and spread, as well as coutouring techniques to build out features in soft toys and dolls faces and have over 30 years experience fitting apparel. Feel free to use for both charitable, personal and commercial use with credit, and a #shoutout to @BadasseBs
