I am a grad student by day (who will hopefully very soon be done with her dissertation) amateur vegan experimental cook and eco-crafter by night. I’ve had an Etsy store for the last few months and have made just enough to support my crafting habit (just about breaking even – what more could a girl want?). My goal when I started was to just make pretty things, since I’ve been making pretty (and ugly) things all my life, just for free.  It’s rewarding to create things and have other people enjoy them, but now I’m on a mission to discover better ways to craft and gift. My raison d’etre for this blog is to share my thoughts and finds and hopefully hear yours about eco-friendly, budget-friendly crafting.

I adore a mantra I once saw in an older crafting book: “Saving the World from Mass Production!” Let’s get crafting!!
