Something that is not a t-shirt (or a dozen roses)
I had the luck to “beta-test” the latest Wire & Twine creation this past weekend. It’s called the Momergency Kit and it contains a whole bunch of stuff I never have on hand, a booklet with ideas on how to use said stuff, and a bag to keep it all tidy.
Now, I’m not a mom, but there’s no exaggeration when reporting that I dipped into this tote no less than four times over my few days in Austin.
- The flashlight helped explore the dark under a picnic table for a missing pacifier.
- A safety pin attached a flower to a lapel.
- I used a ziplock to make a safe haven for a lens with a lost lens backing.
- I flossed with some of the thread.
Oh yeah, I passed a photographer on the street that first night out and paid for a mugshot from this character. If I didn’t have that Sharpie I’d never have gotten his email address.
So I tip my hat to Wendy for making something that’s already been worth it’s light weight and small footprint. I suppose if I’m going to tout, it would seem prudent to remind folks that a certain holiday approaches, and if you don’t want to send a box of chocolates…
The Momergency Kit is a fine choice.
Oh, and after reading that entry on wikipedia about Mother’s Day, who knew it “was copied from England by a social activist with a call to unite women against war.” The proclamation is worth reading.

Hey Chris – your banner photo images seem to be broken. Just a heads up.
