Goodwill changes Lives Thru the Power of Work, I'm Proof

Hello my blog readers, I've been on a amazing journey , and I never left my beautiful city of San Antonio, I'm excited to announce that I was hired by the Goodwill of San Antonio as the first regional 
Manager of Visual merchandising for all 18 locations, doing a job that I absolutely love, that's one of the reasons I've been away from my beloved blog for a bit, but I'm back to share the awesome work that Goodwill is doing in our community, providing jobs and resources for many.
On this post I'm sharing some pictures of the first store that I worked and helped with their merchandising needs , so far I've only visited six stores and I've been welcomed with enthusiasm and free reign to create a more retail oriented experience for our customer. Finding the beauty and charm in the incredible donations our stores receive on a daily basis, from our community that supports us by
Donating their new and used goods to us. Please take the time out to donate your clothes, housewares, furniture and Art to the Goodwill Changing Lives Thru the power of work. 
These images are from the The Bulverde store located at Bulverde road and 1604
I will be back with other stories and images, along with some DIY projects percolating in my studio.
Happy Hunting!

Turn Men's Hawaiian shirts into a Spring shift dress.

With the Spring season upon us, the floral trend is strong this year on the fashion 
Runways.
So here is an idea to turn men's polyester Hawaiian shirts into a cool free form shift dress.
Classic with a tank top and boots or pair it up with a classic denim jacket for night time pizzazz 
These two shirts were picked up at my local Goodwill for a great price.
So go out in style and never look back.
Best,
