Carnival of Green Crafts #2 (and An Invitation To All of You)

carnival of green craftsThe second Carnival of Green Crafts is now posted at BlogHer.  Crafts and DIY editor Deb Roby has done a fabulous job, so head on over and check out what she’s whipped up. I think the haiku is my favorite.

We have been so pleased that so many green crafters and craft aficionados out there have sent in posts, commented, and visited the carnivals thus far.  For those who haven’t, we have the following invitation for you:

  • Submit one of your posts! Submissions are accepted on a rolling basis.  The next two carnivals will be here at Crafting A Green World and then at Whip Up.  The blog carnival submission form is the easiest way for us to keep straight who’s sent in what, but if it gives you fits then email us at greencraftscarnival (at) gmail (dot) com.
  • Suggest someone else’s post! If you see a post out there and you think “this would be perfect for that green craft carnival thingy,” then by all means let us know about it.  We’ll touch base with the author and make sure it’s ok with them before we link to it.
  • Host a carnival! If you want to be more involved in the green craft community or get more exposure for your blog, hosting a carnival is a great way to do it.  Don’t be scared, we’ll help make it easy and fun.
  • Let us know about your blog! We love it when people send in their posts, but we also know that people get busy.  So we have come knocking to several of you and asked for permission to include your posts.  We’d also love to build up a list of blogs that hosts can pick from and know that the blog owner is fine with being included in the carnival whenever.So if you have a blog, and it has some green crafting content, and you just keep forgetting to send in a post – or if you’re shy about submitting – leave your blog’s address in the comments here.  You can feel free to send in a post when you have something you’re extra proud of, but we’ll also keep an eye on it and quite possibly surprise you.

So that’s our invitation to you, to help make this carnival a fun community event. Let us know if you have any other thoughts as well.

Skye Kilaen began sewing at an early age and eco-rabble-rousing shortly after that. Many years later, someone finally told her that there are books about how to make quilts. Life was never the same. In fact, she spent more on her sewing machine than her car. Bringing her green and crafty passions back together, Skye is now happily discovering ways to create beautiful and useful objects using thrifted and sustainable materials. No, that's not just an excuse to visit Goodwill more often. Honest.

  1. I can’t wait to see all the different blogs on green crafting!

    I have some green crafty stuff on my blog (in fact almost all my craft projects so far, bar one, has been using recycled materials) but at the moment I’m concentrating on food and learning how to make food last longer so I’m not really sure if I can contribute to the green craft carnival this time round. Perhaps next time!

  2. Thanks for keeping us all up to date on crafting green. I heart this site. 🙂 I read articles on here all the time which help to inspire and education me the green way. I also like to craft green and reuse materials. I have a few tutorials on my site that you may find interesting…I am a new blogger so that is always new stuff to come!
