I'm also reformatting my computer today. It's been increasingly more difficult to connect to the internet. It sometimes takes me over an hour to get a stable dial-up connection. I've ran every diagnostic that I can think of and everything checks out fine. My last resort was to reformat the hard drive. Since I don't have any shipping to do this week, it's the perfect time to get it done. I may be MIA (missing in action) for the next couple of days while I reload all of my programs.
But most importantly, I want to tell you about the Peace Felt project. I just found about it recently and wanted to share it with my crafty friends. It's open to all types of arts and crafts as long as the piece contains 25% handmade felt. It will be more than the usual kind of exchange. The project hopes to promote peace, love and unity throughout the world with unconditional giving. I think this is such a cool idea! It's open to both individual artists and groups. You can get all of the details at PeaceFelt.org. They also have a blog at PeaceFelt.blogspot.com. So far, they have participants from Nova Scotia, CA, Tasmania, Australia, United Kingdom, United States and Iraq. I hope to see you all there! :-) I can hardly wait for the exchange on September 21, world peace day.
