My pal Christy launched Created Treats this year, a blog where she scopes out her very favorite handmade designs. Christy is a crafter, co-organizer of the Indie Craft Experience here in Atlanta, and Membership Representative on the Board of Directors at Hello Craft. While not all of her Created Treats are from green crafters, she shared one not too long ago that caught my eye.
William Dohman of Oh Dier cut the "Lucky" recycled sign pictured above from reclaimed plywood, and that's not the only reclaimed wood sign in his shop. I love the mix of inspirational and cheeky words and phrases he chooses!
I think what struck me about the Lucky sign in particular, beyond its eco-friendliness, was the sentiment itself. We forget sometimes how lucky we are. Chances are, if you're reading this, you have ready access to healthy food, clean water, and live in a relatively safe and comfortable place. It would be sort of nice to have a cheerful reminder of that to hang right on the wall.
You can check out more of Dohman's work over in the Oh Dier Etsy shop!
