Gift for a friend. She loved it!
Leading By Example . . .
I decided to learn a more effective take on recycling in an age where most things are disposable, especially technology. I decided to reexamine my available resources and use my hobbies and talents to create beauty from our leftover materials.
Canoeing through Old Town made me realize how dirty our rivers have become. And as a mother, one must lead by example. It is important to me that my daughter learns to be a proactive, creative, free thinking, open minded individual. So I make jewelry to afford her karate lessons, art supplies, and trash bags and vinyl gloves so that we can go pull trash out of the river. When I tell my daughter not to be wasteful, I recycle it. When I tell her one person can make a difference, I try it. When I tell her to be proactive because complaining gets you nowhere? I live it.
A portion of the proceeds from all of my recycled jewelry ends up funding my personal river clean up efforts in Lansing, MI. At the moment it is mostly a personal effort, but I am trying to find interested people to join my family in hauling trash out of the Grand River.
I'm a single mom and i like to keep busy. Always in motion. I'm into cycling, canoeing, swimming, reading, recycling, and crafting. I try to live by example, support small business, and save the environment one recycling project at a time.
