Half-way through May I would like to present to you what the amazing handmade community has been working on, inspired by the warmer weather and the scent of the coming summer. Spring re-awakens not only the trees around us but our creativity as well and this can be witnessed on the pages you are about to see. But before you flip through, I have even more important news to share. I suppose that being already here, you have interest not only in handmade but also in making our planet a better place.

That is exactly what Beth Terry will help you do with her brand new book Plastic Free - How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too. After a year of researching and writing, she came up with the perfect giude to help you wean off plastic. Buy the book and keep in mind that it makes a perfect gift as well. With each other's help we can keep our home a clean, healthy and happy place! Keep it simple! Sonya Kanelstrand
