About

I love scissors! Maybe it’s the Boo Radley in me. I don’t know.

I love rescuing things, especially if someone else deems them trashworthy.

My special affinity is vintage fabrics, notions, trinkets and papers, although I will incorporate any intriguing castaway, regardless of age.

I love collage and cobbling things together.

I believe that the small stuff does matter.

One person can make a difference.

And character and environment are everything.

Truth be told, I'm a little bit obsessive about saving tiny bits of everything…

I think character lives large in small.

I find comfort and encouragement in clipping, snipping and finding a new life for would be discards.

I hope my creations pass this along.

I blog & love it. http://joonbeam.blogspot.com

Recycle. Reuse. Recreate.

spread a little joonbeam...environmentally conscious designed handcrafts

because environment is everything

“I really feel sorry for people who think things like soap dishes or mirrors or Coke bottles are ugly because they’re surrounded by things like that all day long, and it must make them miserable.” Robert Rauschenberg 1925~2008

ProJecT SNoWFLaKe: One housewife on a mission impossible ~ loving our little blue swirling planet.

My art is based on recycling and reusing because I am obsessed with responsibility. That's a longer story which, extremely simplified, led me here. I enjoy the challenge of saving would be disposable goods and transforming it into who-knows-what? ProJecT SNoWFLaKe is an extension of my philosophy.

Beginning March 17, 2010 you can help me clean up our world, one little step at a time.

For every purchase in any & all of my etsy shops, I will pick up a baker's dozen worth of litter or spend 13 minutes throwing an eye, whichever comes first. I will keep a tally, post it in my shop announcements, and write about my venture on my blog.

Where does the SNoWFLaKe come in? I chose that name for several reasons. It seems like a SNoWFLaKe'S chance in hell that one housewife can make a significant difference. But here's my impetus.{Captain Charles Moore on Letterman}:

Please access & view Part 2 as well.

And here's my inspiration. {Paul Rokich} I first read about this man and cut out the Readers Digest story in the 1980s. I still have it. I found this, which is similar:

http://www.people.com/people/archive/article/0,,20113733,00.html

Additionally, I began a novel 6+ years ago, called Snowflake N.H. {It's a sign.} and my dear husband and daughter have been waiting on tenterhooks for the whole story. I am on chapter 9. I find it hard to devote time to it. So, this challenge serves as an additional incentive for me as I will devote 13 minutes to Snowflake for every item sold. {See Evan and Scout smiling.}

Many sellers donate a % of their profits to causes. My idea is a take-off on this practice. I'll be the action. It's a housewife thing. We'll see how it goes.

THaNK YOU for your support and, if you LoVe this idea, please spread the word.

Just doing my small part to save the earth and spread the treasures of the past for joy in our future. Please visit my other etsy shops to see more of my recycled & upcycled art with heart, my handwritten letter revolution and to learn more about me.
