Those who MAKE have a responsibility towards the environment. We have to develop considerate habits. It is very hard. However, if we can train ourselves to think that it’s a blessing to actually get resources for what we have just imagined, it’s a good start.
So the mantra
Handle with Care. The benefit of following or the loss of not following doesn’t show immediately for us to even realize what’s going wrong.
If resources could talk
Sugar will tell you, don’t burn me, even I can taste bitter. Lol. But burn me right, and I’m silky caramel…Add cream and chocolate and baby, I’m your brownie!
So it’s not for sugar to tell you what went or goes into its making. Its job is to add sweetness to your world because you have a sweet tooth. You have to know and maintain that balance because you have chosen sugar to be your resource. And it did come to you in its sweetest form!
So MAKERS, care. Care Enough.

Burlap with a Heart of Gold
Jute burlap is a nature-friendly fabric. Was simply looking for material substitutes, when this fabric appeared in a picture.
Tried looking up Pinterest for an idea and the raw, rugged, rough burlap was present everywhere in its metrosexual form with a lot of white lace and white paint.
It’s not that lace is not loved here. The Purple Frog loves lace. In fact, its second name can be lace. But, something that retains jute burlap’s individuality, its raw charm.
Never mind the limited sewing skills and the lack of a sewing machine.
Here is burlap with a heart of gold. Any Pocahontas will love to don it. And that’s where this top belongs.
P.S. The sugar example happened because in the background Rachel Allen was melting dark chocolate and white chocolate and sugar on top of savoury butter croissants. Yummmm.Share this thought:
