i am excited. i am about to take a challenge. the dottie angel challenge. for 365 days, i will commit myself to only buy handmade or second hand items for my home and closet. of course there will be a few clauses. i plan to start on the day of my little ones second birthday (8th october), she too will be included in the challege. my 2 teenage boys.... i will be leaving that up to them. perhaps they will particapte in some form of their choice. my hubby... well we will see.
this decision for me is also another step towards a simpler life. to tread a little lighter on the earth. to use my creativity on a whole new level. to be mindful about each item that passes through my hands.
anyone else up for the challenge?
