Check this out! I’m in the Tucson Green Magazine!
I interviewed for this article over a week ago, but had no idea when it would be published.
The first sentence reads, “The T-shirt peaking out of her sweater says it all: “Craft or Die”. This is a woman who takes her hobby seriously.” (This is the t-shirt)
Well, the article discusses the things I’ve been trying to do to be green. For example; thrifting for craft material, buying handmade and refashioning. I made sure to mention Wardrobe Refashion and the Buy Handmade Pledge, two very worthy green efforts.
I just have to share this last little bit of the article:
“There’s something pretty powerful in these small creative acts. Not only are Lord and people like her making their corners of the globe more beautiful, artful places to exist, they’re connecting with similarly inclined green crafters, sharing ideas and values, spreading the simple code of recycling into every aspect of modern life.
“For the first time in my life I am meeting people like meâ€”crafters with my same values,” she says, smiling and feeling good that, however solitary the crafting life is, there are thousands more like her out there doing the same thing, and most of those thousands, like her, are mothers and wives and friends. . . Isn’t that how revolutions get started?
Could “Craft or Die” become the rallying cry for a new movement of green crafters, who will one day single-handedly bring down this wasteful consumer culture that has all of us on an exhausting, soul-crushing treadmill of credit cards, traffic jams, and cheap imports filled with poison? Let’s hope so.”

I guess January is my publicity month. Last year it was HGTV, this year it’s all about being green! I’ve been working on recycled craft items to put in my shop. I’d better put a rush on my update!
And while we are on the subject of being green, if you haven’t already seen this, please take 20 minutes to check it out. I think it’s a pretty good eye-opener.
