The Green Crafts Lifestyle (and their special promotion starting this Friday . . . and a new call for submissions!)


Book CoverIn June, I wrote in this post about our crafty upcycling friend Mahe (aka MZ) that included a call for submissions for her new upcycled craft book. The Green Crafts Lifestyle is now out, and it’s amazing! It includes sections on paper, plastic, wood, metal, and fabric and has projects from 20 artists around the world, including four of my bloggy friends:

Along with 35 projects detailed on nearly 200 pages of photographs and step-by-step directions, you’ll find author bios and photos with links to their blogs, websites, and other online contacts.

Now for the promotion! To provide all crafters with a chance to learn from these techniques, Mahe’s Altered Upcycling business will provide unlimited FREE Kindle copies of The Green Crafts Lifestyle this Friday, August 16 through Sunday, August 18! Kindle doesn’t restrict you to its device; you can read the book on any PC machine or tablet with the free Kindle App. Simply click HERE for your free copy.

AND . . . drum roll . . . MZ is looking for MORE submissions from MORE of you! In her words: “We need talented artists, crafters, and upcyclists to provide projects and tutorials based on upcycling and green crafting. Altered Upcycling will take submissions for Part 2 of “The Green Crafts Lifestyle” series, and the project submission deadline is August 31, 2013. Please make sure you send tutorials that upcycle wood, plastic, paper, glass, or fabric. The tutorials must be in MS Word format with the pictures embedded in the doc file. I will also need a photo of you as well as an artist bio and links to your blogs, Etsy shops, etc. Please email tutorials to Let’s save the world one craft project at a time!”

Thank you, Mahe! ♥  P.S. If you haven’t entered my “Catch-up Giveaway,” please click HERE!

  2. It was fabulous being a part of the Green Crafts Lifestyle book (thank-you so much Katherine for suggesting I submit ;O) & I encourage everyone to send in your groovy DIYs for the next installment!

    …and of course take advantage of MZ’s generous free download weekend! *I don’t have a or tablet reader myself but can easily enjoy Amazon downloads on my computer with the free Kindle Reading App:

    • I have a Kindle, but I have the app on my computer, too . . . twice the fun, right? 🙂 And congratulations once again on your published projects . . . not to mention making the cover with those fun bracelets! 🙂

  3. I love the movement towards reusing and upcycling AND I just turned my tablet into a kindle with the aid of a free kindle app from Amazon! I will have to look through my own projects and forward a suitable one. I think my sock monkeys are probably my favourite! 🙂

  4. Thanks Katherine for the link to my blog – I’m back from hols and looking forward to trying some of the other tutorials tomorrow with my daughter:) May just try my luck and submit a further article:) Vicky
