knitting my way to ethiopia

It has been suggested to me that the best way to help my beloved friends in Ethiopia might not be to send them money, but to send them myself, to help them learn to earn their own money. Hmmm... It kind of makes sense, doesn't it? My Felted Bag Project is not leaping off the ground, even though the bags are beautiful and lots of people love them. I know... the stinkin' economy, blah, blah, blah... But anyway, here's what I think I'll do. Rather than make a cash donation to Project Mercy for each bag sold, I'm going to stash the money in an account tagged for Travel To Ethiopia. We hope to go again next fall, and fundraising has to start early. One way or another, I'm going to find an excuse to knit - if I need one. This way I'll be "knitting my way to Ethiopia". That's gonna take a lot of yarn... Want a bag? Visit my Shop. I've just reduced the prices a bit too. I want to sell these babies!

And something cool I heard about yesterday - Wayne Dyer has a new movie out, called Ambition To Meaning. You can buy it by clicking the link, or watch it for FREE, today only. I'm going to see if I can get it to load on my laptop while I make beads later. I love Wayne Dyer's accessible spirituality. Not too woo-woo. Not religious. Just a lot of good, thoughtful stuff we can all use. Make yourself some popcorn and do a little personal growth at the same time!
