Another Clothes Exchange

Yup, I am holding another of those events where women get together, strip off their clothes and swap.... haha. Not really.
I'm sure people these days understand the concept of clothes swaps, since the popularity of such giggle fests are becoming increasingly popular.

The last one I held was December 4th 2008, unfortunately the student union double booked and the clothes swap got changed to a date that I was unable to do. I did cancel the event however I had to deal with so many disappointed persons that luckily SALT (my workplace) came to the rescue and said we could use upstairs. Phew. So I had to redo the posters and get them out just 5 days before the event. Luckily however we managed to attract 30 odd people, raising a total of £68 for WasteWatch.

Hopefully with better preparation and advertising we may make a little more for WasteWatch this time around.

I'm looking to get either an acoustic artists/band to provide some entertianment and shall think up some activities to get people chatting. I'm hoping this time there might be some cat fights for entertainment purposes. tehe.

If you'd like more information on the event visit online blog at:

Well this is it...

Yup, this is my first blog, welcome.
Not entirely sure what to start off with so let's start with a little about why I've finally set up a blog. Here goes...

I study geography and have a real passion for the sustainability of our planet. March 2008, I took some time out of uni for personal reasons until this Feb, it wasn't a good time for me, but I feel I've really found myself as a result. My passion for sustainability and reducing my environmental impact has grown immensely and working at the centre for alternative technology really helped. I've always been quite creative but summer 2008, I decided to start making jewellery and other bits and bobs out of recycled materials. Using everything, ranging from bottle caps to old vinyls, buttons to juice cartons and everything in between.
I've become such a horde, since I now envision everything in a different light and am constantly thinking what I can do with the things I have to recycle or throw away.

I absolutely love it.

So basically the aim of my blog is to encourage others to think creatively about everyday objects and to share some of my ideas and creations with others.

Thanks for reading my blog, I hope you come back and the future will provide us all with plenty of ideas.
