Repost: Why Sustainable?

In honor of Earth Day, I thought I would do a repost on why I am trying to pursue a sustainable lifestyle. This is a post from almost two years ago and it is quite interesting for me to revisit! I hope that you enjoy it and that you all have a lovely and ‘green’ […]

CH:H My Listings

In light of the last post, I whipped up a few things to add to Craft Hope’s etsy shop to raise money for Haiti. I got permission from Rebeka (aka artsycraftbabe) to use her free Phoebe Bag pattern to list in the esty shop, so if you’ve always liked that bag but don’t sew, now’s […]

They’re very simple to sew and I’m hoping to […]

Mama to Mama

In what I believe is the true spirit of the holidays and Thanksgiving, I would ask all of my crafting/crafty friends to consider participating in Mama to Mama. I think this is a great way to give to people in need from what you already have. “As crafters, the reasons we create are many. Just […]
