04.20.20 Journal

Since the shut down of our world as we knew it, there has been a deep and welcome pivot here at Crispina.

Just two weeks ago, I aired a live make-your-own-mask tutorial on Facebook using materials you might well have around your home.  On that very morning it became clear that I have many, friends, fans and followers who would rather support me with a purchase than make their own mask.  Since then I have made and sent out over 250 masks.  The nicest notes have flowed in from strangers thanking me and my team for working through this time of isolation to help people in need be able to venture out with some sort of safety.

Just so you know, my team currently consists of my two daughters, Violet age 13, who is ethereal, a dancer, dreamer, and sometimes sewer and Lucy, 14 who is focused, energetic and a real hard worker.   The three of us (which really means Lucy and I, with OCCASSIONAL help from Violet) have busted out these masks pretty much non-stop, day and night.  

Today, we caught up with our orders! They are all shipped and there is a little stock ready to send right out.  Our masks are made from recycled cotton and linen shirts that we had kicking around the studio, and a couple of sweet donations from friends near and far.  Each one is different, made from 2 or 3 layers of fabric with either ear loops or ties. You can choose dark/neutral, light/pastel, or bright in color too.  

We are not scientists but have done a little online research to learn that any mask protection is more effective than no mask protection from coronavirus.  We think that natural fibers are probably better to breathe through than synthetics, and we are pretty sure that adding a little fun, whimsy to an otherwise completely utilitarian ‘accessory’ might we the welcome change that you are looking for.  

We are all about building awareness of our environmental crisis and think that offering 100% recycled masks is a wonderful way to show how there is a lot of use left in things that our culture is prone to chucking in the landfill.  

Speaking of which, all the life changes we are living can be stressful to roll with but there are many changes humans are making that are having wonderfully positive impact on our planet. Ima going to figure out how we can carry some of those changes forward with us.  

Are you in?

I sure hope so.  I sure hope you are well and weathering this time in good spirits.  Scroll down and leave a comment sharing how you are finding joy in your days. I read every single comment and really love to find them here!
