Blog Action Day

October 15th is Blog Action Day - click here for more info. This years theme is the subject of poverty.

Poverty is not only a pressing issue, it is a complex one. It's easy to think that there isn’t much an individual can do. Fortunately this isn’t the case at all. With activities ranging from advocacy and professional contribution to charity and financing, there is in fact many ways that we can act.

You can find a range of resources about poverty, about what the average person can do as well as dozens of post suggestions and ideas in the Blog Action Day Resources section.

World Cardmaking Day

These are the cards that I made on World Cardmaking Day - I had these x-stitch images ready to make into cards, and this was the right occasion to finish them. I really do enjoy x-st, and am very happy with how these cards turned out - now I need to get busy, and stitch some more!

If you want to find out about World Cardmaking Day - have a look at this site for the history of the day, lots of ideas, card gallery & more!
