5  Zero Waste Frugal RRR Craftalong in Craftalongs by faemystique on: August 06, 2019 01:47:09 PM

Many of us have been discussing a zero waste lifestyle of sustainable living projects for a swap... but we decided to instead create a craftalong!

Discussion here

Send the organizer your pinterest board link for this craftalong and I will list it here:

Faes board
Acadian driftwoods board
riechans board
audios board

Join us here for monthly projects and themes... ideas for ways to save on reusable crafted items... reduce our waste and carbon footprints... and perhaps a swap in the springtime?  Make a post and share your list of projects you can modify as we go along...

Besides replacing single use items we can also enjoy making and posting projects to use up scraps and create new items by being frugal and using thrifted items or making new life for outgrown or torn clothing...

See each month for new projects and themes...  post your projects and links in your posts to share with the group.  

See list for links to projects:

8  ART JOURNAL PAGES On Going claims swap? in New Swap Theme Ideas by faemystique on: July 30, 2019 11:36:19 PM

one of my lifejournal pages

Hey guys... I love doing art journaling and our local groups have disbanded... I was in a couple groups who would meet once a month and exchange journals.

How this worked was we bought ourselves the book we wanted to use, then we decorated the outside and inner cover as well as two pages.  We chose a theme for our overall journal that would allow for artist interpretation for the group to add to.  Then we took someone elses home each month, worked a page or two in their journals, then got back together to share what we created and move to the next journal.

I have been contemplating how we would do that here.  So here is my proposal.  we would do art journal pages based on a size chosen by each craftster.  They will post the size they desire in their questionaire or post and each person will create a page per month on a round robin of participants.  The single art page decorated on two sides will be sent to the journal owner.  Papers should be heavier sturdy weight to be bound later by the journal owner in whatever manner they see fit.  Binding techniques and ideas can be shared via the discussion thread.  My idea takes after Tamara Laporte's Lifebook series, I have been in a couple of times.  

I figure this way, we won't have to spend the money on sending a whole journal back and forth!  New participants can be added into the list and those who want out can be dropped off, go until we decide we are done?

any thoughts on this or ideas to make it better?  I am also open to themes each month but I also like coming up with something that the owner wants represented as well.

Love to hear what you think!

Tam's completed lifebook from 2012
