You know how life sometimes gives you presents?
A couple of months ago I pitched a really awesome Canadian healthy living website called Tuja Wellness. After a lengthy application process, including a sample post and a Skype interview, I was asked to send a few ideas for columns. I sent along some pitches that I thought would fit their site: going green for non-hippies, being a mindful mommy, the skinny on skinny (diet pros and cons), and then there was this one: retro revamp. It was a total afterthought. I love crafts, I love recycling, and I’m pretty good at it. So I thought, what the heck? Maybe they’ll go for it. And they did.
So now, every two weeks, I get to come up with a fun recycling-related home decoration projects. I’m being paid to do crafts. Happy early Christmas, LJ!
