I have two wonderful items to tell you about this morning!
The first, is the Carnival of Green Crafts, which has been kicked off over at Crafting A Green World. They’ve linked to yours truly, but I invite you to go and spend some time looking at all the other wonderful featured crafters–ESPECIALLY in the paper arts (“Paper Talk”)!
The second, is a great contest hosted by my friend Shaz. I’ve talked about Shaz’s beautiful totes and bags before…but now you have a chance to win one, and all you have to do is help feed hungry people!! See the details on her blog about Free Rice, where they’ve figured out an free, easy, fun, and educational way that you can help donate rice to hungry people. And now, as an added bonus, you will get one of Shaz’s stunning creations if you donate the most rice by Sept. 1! A true WIN-WIN situation all around!! And all you have to do is spend a couple of minutes clicking the mouse!
The crafting world has potential to be a big waste producer, but at the same time, can also be a wonderful source of upcycling and recycling! Buying handmade products enriches our cultural capacity and can help sustain people in many different ways. Let’s all work toward maximizing the potential GOOD crafting can do.
