I love Earth Day. I didn't know much about it growing up, but the first Earth Day I remember well was when I was in college. A group of us went to the Bronx Zoo and I was struck by the field of white crosses, each baring the name of a species that has become extinct. It made a real impact on me. I believe we should celebrate Earth Day every day - not to sound cliche, but it really is the only home we've got!
Here are the magnets I made this week. They are recycled advertising magnets, and other such ones that I have come across. I even took a "bumper sticker" magnet and cut it up. So next time you get one in the mail, or wherever you come across them ... don't throw them out! Use them as a mini canvas and create some art.
I am done creating for the week. The next two days will be focused on preparations for Cary's SpringDaze. Right now they are calling for clouds and a 30% chance of scattered showers. I am remaining optimistic that they day will be cool, and wonderful, and that the usual crowds will still come. Next Saturday (May 1) I will be at Peak Fest in Apex ... a new show for me. Wish me luck!
