Eco-Party Time! Hooray!

This year for Christmas I tried my darndest to re-use and re-purpose any festive wrapping.  Instead of wrapping a clothing box in more new paper products I concealed the brand name with scraps of book binding paper. Clever - I know. I must admit I did use some pretty spiffy stickers with borders but most of it was from my scrap pile.

Anyway, I just found a website that sells (at a very reasonable price) eco-friendly party favors and gift wrap etc.  I hope you like it as much as I do. And just in time for Valentines day!

Architecture for Humanity

Sponsor a Day of Design! 

I came across this website and thought it would be a good idea to pass along the opportunity to donate to this cause by posting it on my blog.  I think it is a great idea because good design should not be a luxury. In many parts of the world people desperately need the problem solving talents of designers and architects. Entire communities depend on it - New Orleans and Haiti are familiar examples of communities in need and if you go to this website you can find out more.  Donate money or your own design talents!
