My husband Joe and I are hoping to be granted a Free Use Permit from the British Columbia Ministry of Forests to clean up some of the logging site waste wood not too far from our home in Merritt, BC. The wood is located in a traditional site where Joe and his family harvest foods and medicines every year. Ideally, we would like to clean as much as possible before the site is burned - great for the soil and new growth, but what a waste!
The August 2009 issue of Real Simple Magazine is on the stands, and guess what Mom? My paper clip chandeliers have received a mention on page 96 (blush)! Liz Arnold, you are very generous and I am so thankful. In her article entitled Home Website Directory, Liz writes;
"etsy.com: This site is getting a lot of play, and for good reason. With more than 100,000 vendors and growing, it's the go-to place for all things handmade. Sellers have their own "storefronts" where they peddle their creations, like Rainbow-colored chrocheted rugs ($35) and paper-clip pandant lights ($275) - which are cooler than they sound."
