TDD and the Uncommon Goods Upcycling Design Challenge

Happy Thanksgiving!

On this day, I give thanks to my amazing family and wonderful friends who are so supportive of what I do.

So, on this Thanksgiving, I'm asking for support in the Uncommon Goods Upcycling Design Challenge. TDD has made it through the first level, and is now in need of votes to proceed to the next level (the judging panel). Although I'm not a fan of vote-based contests, this challenge is an excellent opportunity for TDD to be seen in a wider market.

I've chosen a basket from my new Rustic Cottage Chic line because it is much easier to replicate than the accessories for which I am known. Of course, I did this with winning in mind. ;)

Here's the basket:

Here's the link to vote for me -

Thank you so much for your support!

Eco Monday - Sew Mantra

Have you heard of Sew Mantra? If not, and you’re eco, you need to get on over to check out what’s going on over there! Sew Mantra is the baby of Martiel Beatty. Her tagline is Renew/Reuse/Reinvent. Love it!

You’ll enjoy checking out all the different types of eco-friendly products that are in the Sew Mantra shop.

This flower bouquet is gorgeous! Perfect for brides, and it can be customized to you!

There are even great items for the kiddos, like this precious Polly the Penguin Critter Hat

The great thing about Sew Mantra right now is that you can still get in on helping Martiel with her 50 Days of ECO-Love Creation Marathon. She’s making one item per day. Everything she makes is made with at least 50-80% reclaimed, recycled, upcycled or organic materials. You can help her by suggesting color combos and designs by using the Endangered Species List as inspiration for her next creation. And, because she’s so passionate about this cause, she’s donating 100% of her profits from her Endangered Species Inspiration Collection to the World Wildlife Fund for as long as the collection exists!

Help Martiel with the Collection!
