Welcome February 2014

Levi Strauss, a young man came from Germany, had a very hard life to survive. He was born in February 26, 1829. It is undeniable that Levi’s is one of the most solid and powerful brand of Jeans or Denims. Behind the great product, there was a wonderful man who invented it. We should thank Levi Strauss for his invention that makes many people from any range of ages, social economic, and society can wear similar dress appearance. However, there should be some unique things  that make Levi’s Jeans so special

    I got 3 levi jeans still going strong they are so nice and durable! I just don’t like that they have buttons instead of a zip.
    Looks like you put a lot of effort into this theme.

  2. Joan says:

    These are really great ideas, Adelien! I wear Levi’s Jeans sometimes and they are still well made – it is neat for me to see the history behind them!

  3. JoAnn says:

    Shelly DuVall Tale Tails has a episode that features Levi Strauss. It isn’t a 100% acurate but it is nice if you want to show a movie with what you are learning.

  4. Missy Homemaker says:

    What a wonderful idea to do a unit based on something so common designed by someone so wonderful! One of my sons will be moving into notebooking next year. I will absolutely keep this in mind for him. I LOVE your new header by the way.
