I recently made a video on my Facebook group introducing myself and introducing the group. Here it is in text form (not word for word, of course):
Hello! My name is Leigha. You may know me from this blog, or maybe from another way – Facebook, Instagram, church, or some other way. If you followed along at all in 2017, you probably know that I challenged myself to a year of purchasing no ready-to-wear clothing from the store, but instead make anything I needed or wanted. Long story short, I did it! And the experience gave me a new appreciation for the environment, being frugal, valuing quality (over quantity, in most cases), finding that personal stress is decreased when you own fewer things, health, and self-esteem/self-love. Not the kind of self-love that says “I’m so great. I’m better than everyone else,” but the kind of self-love that gives a person confidence, the kind that allows you to encourage others.
As I was learning these types of things along the way, I tried to incorporate some new changes to my lifestyle. I knew these things would be best for me and best for me to be a good steward of the Earth God put in our care. However, I’m a super practical and pragmatic, so I knew I would never stick with the changes if they were too complicated or too involved – the changes had to be easy to implement if I was going to do any of them long term.
But to clarify, I’m not talking about cheap cop out changes. I mean, in some cases the changes were cheaper than what I had been doing previously, but in no way were they cop outs, and in many cases they weren’t significantly cheaper.
So I created my Facebook group as another way for me to share the products I’ve found or created along the way, ideas, tips and tricks, recipes, and more to help you all on whatever journey you may find yourself on.
Thanks for taking the time to hangout here – I’m excited to get to know you all better!
Enjoy your day!
