A new project

I recently signed up for a 2 month pledge over at Wardrobe Refashion, so starting tomorrow, all new clothes will either be refashioned or handmade by me! Wish me luck- here is a copy of the "pledge" in case you'd like to read it:

The Pledge

  • I, Lauren Smith, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 months. I pledge that I shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings!

Fab! One more thing on the plate for Lauren. How do you do it all? You are an inspiration.

That idea fits in with the cover story on TIME magazine this week. Recyling clothing and or buying used / vintage helps promote green living. It's a long story and you can see all 51 tips here:

There are some really great ideas that are really easy to do.

I tried the link above but it didn't work.
Hey, i tried subbing to your blog but it seems you don't have any feeds.

Huh... that's strange. My links should pop up in a separate window- I tested it just now and it's working for me. Also, if you go to www.smartsandcrafts.blogspot.com instead of smartsandcrafts.com, you should be able to access our feeds.

Thanks!
