Mark your calendars for Tuesday, April 23. Time slot: 2-3 PM EST (11-12 PST).

April 22 is Earth Day and to observe this event we’ll be talking about eco-friendly/green crafts, recycled crafts, and upcycled crafts. Do you use beads made from old bottles, create with hemp yarn, or make sculpture using the cast-off items of others? We want to see what you’re crafting and talk more about the crafting possibilities when you ‘go green’.

We’re going to have an awesome eco-crafting contest, too, with prizes from Random House books. Get started on your project now and stay tuned for details on how to enter and win!
