This month's issue of South Shore Living Magazine has a feature entitled, "Green Heroes Among Us: 5 Local Organizations Creating A Sustainable South Shore." I'm happy to say that I was named one of them for my work in the reuse movement; primarily for STAY VOCAL. Our good friend Kristine at The Attic Fanatic was named too. Check out the SV section below. Please note, the article was written a couple of months ago and there has since been an update about the release of the documentary.
From tattoo artist to yoga instructor, Maureen Mullaley is a woman of many skills. But these days, her primary project is her artwork under the name Inside My Cranium, which is why we've collaborated. She acquires used guitar strings and transforms them into jewelry.
I first Maureen two years ago at my cousin's wedding ceremony and as so many of us do these days, we connected on Facebook. Maureen soon realized that my passion for reuse, so this past fall, she reached out to let me know that she had begun making bracelets out of used guitar strings.
Having seen a lot of broken guitar strings thrown out in my days touring with bands, I loved what she was doing. So, I ran a contest on my Facebook page to give a couple of them away. They got a great response from my community, so I knew there was a collaboration to be had. Well, the universe finally spoke louder in early 2014, when Maureen reached out to me about creating some T-Shirt designs for STAY VOCAL. For now, we're focusing on the bracelets, but time will tell...

A few weeks ago, we started a new Saturday routine on our social networks called the "Saturday Breakfast Special." Each week, we share a photo of someone with their healthy (mostly) breakfast, while wearing their STAY VOCAL Cereal Spill T-Shirt. It's a fun way for us to share healthy eating ideas and talk about the meal that so many of us have as a favorite: BREAKFAST! Well, this week, one of our customers, Dana Portnoy, not only shared a photo, but the recipe for her breakfast too. So, we just had to share it with everybody. Scroll down to check it out.
During that snowstorm my uncle was staying at my parents in my old room, because they had no power...and he saw a waffle box (with a shirt i got long ago) and brought down to the kitchen and told my mom there was a frozen box of waffles in his room.
