bleeding hearts benefit

hi sew greeners.

renee is hosting a sale on FRIDAY with the all of the proceeds going towards the Sierra Club . In her own words this is why:

I was reading about the impact oil drilling will have on Alaska, should the US pass legislation to begin leasing drilling rights in the Chuckchi Sea . Environmentalism is a cause I feel very strongly about, and couldn't sit back without doing something to help out. Especially with Valentine's Day coming up, I believe there is no better time to show the world a bit of positivity through loving actions.

She's collected a bunch of crafty goods and will sell them online starting Friday. If you'd like to support the cause there's more info and a preview here . the etsy shop [that will be filled] is here

hang up

happy new year to all our readers! we wish you all the best in 2008. and (naturally) a new year comes with resolutions (though every year i say i won't make any). this year i am trying out the more encompassing idea of living a "conscious" life. thinking (and in turn questioning) more.

my early christmas gift (the shelf)
our bathroom sans shower curtain

and now, as we nearly complete our bathroom redo, i have been put in charge of the accessories. earth friendly i say. no plastic please. (sorry rubber ducky.) i would very much like a linen or hemp shower curtain (this one in particular) but worry about the fine print stating that a liner is required. as usual, i am turning to our very knowledgeable community for guidance. does anyone have any experience with these products? any suggestions? i would be so grateful.

and what - if any - resolutions have you made?
