A love letter

2012 Ahoy!

Thank you for helping to make my 2011 such an amazing year. You helped me start a business, work towards expanding my size range (sizes 0 & 2 coming soon, with 18 & 20 to follow!), improve my Etsy shop, and have been incredible support. Thank you for kicking butt!  🙂

Thank you too for supporting my efforts (and making them our effort, really :)) to send a pair of super cute, sturdy, made-with-love Upitees to a women’s shelter for every purchase in the end of 2011. This month, I’ll be sending 21 pairs of undies to women’s shelters allover the United States:
– 1 pair to North Carolina
– 6 pairs to the Tampa area
– 2 pairs to the Detroit area
– 5 pairs to the Houston area
– 7 pairs to the Santa Fe area
(Check out the map of where all the Upitees in the world have gone here :))

Amazing.  So where to in 2012? Onward and upward! Exciting things are afoot in my little business world, and I’m newly committed to doing something creative everyday this year.  Man, for some reason (and maybe I’m not the only one?  Comment below… :)), even though I’m not so much for resolutions, I’m feeling more grateful for the excuse for a fresh start this year. Most exciting of all, I’m really looking forward to more opportunities to interact with and to get to know you.  I’d love to hear about what you’ve got cooking for 2012- anything exciting afoot? Please comment below!  🙂

Thanks so much again for everything. Here’s to a fabulous 2012!



About La Vie en Orange

I've been sewing since I was 4. Grandma started teaching me with Barbie and pot holder loops. Barbie had a lot of neon tube tops and mini skirts that season. :) Soon I was taking lessons and making pillows, shorts, pajama pants. Meanwhile I was flexing my entrepreneurial muscles selling homemade necklaces and hair bows at school. Fast -forward 20(!) years, and here I am. So excited to be selling eco-friendly undies and sharing my something special with the world! Thanks for stopping by! :)
