As creatives and crafters I find it’s really easy to get swept up with hoarding and buying the latest greatest artsy craftsy thing. My studio room is filled with mountains and mountains of paper, paints, brushes punches, card blanks, envelopes, cellophanes …and more paper! We would often joke about the ‘rainforests’ worth of watercolour paper and pads alone that I get through & stash away.
A couple of years ago that started to really bug me, it started to really play on my conscience. Surely if I do this then everyone else with a creative inclination does too, and that adds up to a lot of ‘rainforests’!
