Fair warning - this is a different sort of "crafty" post today. I wanted to show you the sculpture that a local resident made in support of the ban on single serving water bottles that was just passed by Town Meeting here in Concord, Massachusetts.
The sculpture is currently parked in front of our High School. There are 1500 water bottles included - the number of water bottles consumed every second in the United States.
As I said before, there are valid arguments for each side of this issue, you can read a brief report about the article and the pros and cons HERE. Seeing this sculpture made me realize how large an impact the use of these bottles has on our world (and the crafty part of me loved the "drips" from the faucet that you can see in the first photo!). If you'd like to see a video interview of the creator of the water faucet, please click HERE to go to the interview of Bob Lawson by Patrick Ball for the ConcordPatch.
I posted the names of the winners of the card kits yesterday - congratulations to the winners and thanks to everyone who left a comment and shared a tip for their fellow crafters. I will be doing some more classes and I'll try to make a few extra kits each time to share with some of you.

I am still trying to catch up with a backlog of email - my schedule has changed and my Dad has been in the hospital so things are a little off track. I think Dad will be released from the hospital today - all positive thoughts and prayers are most welcome. Thanks.
