The second issue of GreenCraft has hit the newsstands, and I ran out to pick up a copy. It's so exciting to have found a publication that speaks to me on every single page. I know I'd love it even if I didn't have an article printed in it... but I do! I really thought that I would be calm and dignified, happy but you know... composed when I opened it up. Nope. I squealed. Midday in a full Barnes and Noble parking lot. By myself (which was a treat in its own right). You might not know that side of me. I sometimes squeal out loud when I'm excited. Got it from my mom. Totally embarrassed me my whole life, and now I feel for my sweet children.
I digress, GreenCrafts latest issue is brimming with more wonderful and inventive projects using recycled and repurposed materials.
Barb Sasaki's work was featured along side mine to create one wallop of spread on my favorite material entitled: Burlap: Rough, Reused & Refined. When I was asked to write an article about why burlap inspired me, you can imagine how much fun I had... what a treat to not have to struggle for words! I also included instructions for making simple gift bags and can cozies. "Stenciling a series of letters to create a word transforms the cans into something thought provoking, not only decorative."
What perfect containers for growing something special. You might remember these from last year.Next time you're at the bookstore go pick up a copy and take a peek, there is so much to see and make on every page of this issue. Have a great start to your week!
