Goodbye to 2008

This year is all but over now and it is time to look optimistically forward to 2009. Listening to the news there are a thousand reasons not to expect happier times ahead, but that's just the news.
I have a garden filled with little birds, the sky is clear blue and one of my dear friends is getting married tomorrow. I'm going to put on some music, drink a toast to those who are no longer with us, those who are and we have still to meet.
Look forward to another wonderful year.
Love & Peace

Spare some time to think about how you can positively help.
Not everyone can make speeches, visit hospitals or donate large sums to charity but in December most of us do a spot of shopping.

Why not help by targeting your spending.
It may be that you buy a project red T shirt at Gap or a pair of
special edition Converse. Have fun holding a Tea Party to help South African grandmothers care for vulnerable orphans and send the money raised to Grandmothers United (http://africansolutions.org. If you have a baby girl or need to buy one a present look at this lovely
website http://justjo.co.za where you can buy exquisite little smocked dresses with profits going to care for the South African Aids Orphans. Use your buying power to help raise money and awareness of how this dreadful disease has affected millions all over the world, but most especially in Africa where children need so much help.

We can help in so many ways & we can't all be Bono
(wheww... that's a relief)

love & peace


About Me

Hastings, East Sussex, United Kingdom
Carry-a-bag began about five ago when I was fuming about plastic carrier bags stuck in trees, washed up on the beach and generally messing up the planet. It began as a little idea but one morning I woke up thinking "don't take a carrier bag just remember to carry a bag. And now I make bags all the time.


Take it shopping or digging...
