The Crafty Minx is about making gorgeous things from preloved, remnant and vintage items. It is written especially for non-crafters who are desperate to be more creative but don't know how, and shares the delicious rewards of living with and giving away beautiful handmade objects. Kelly Doust shares her practical tips to help make your own delectable crafts from discarded materials, and a positive impact on the environment in the process. Including over 75 projects which give traditional crafts a modern makeover - from brightly patterned summer beach bags and cotton apron tops to cosy lambs' wool throws and cashmere-covered hot water bottles, or a soft toy for a friend's new baby - this book is broken down into the four seasons of the year for easy inspiration, and to carry you through the year creatively. Bringing you stories about great vintage finds and new ways of looking at the treasures within our own homes, thrift stores and local flea markets, it reflects the huge cultural shift taking place right now towards recycling and buying locally. No matter where you live or what your circumstances, discover just how easy it is to be a crafty minx.

While the media bombards us with doom and gloom stories of a planet in peril, there are millions of people across the globe actually doing something about it. Some are household names, many are not, but all find at least one reason to get out of bed each day and help the world. One Hundred & One Reasons to Get Out of Bed introduces us to 101 everyday earth advocates. It asks them three simple questions: what gets them out of bed and why, what they are doing about it and what can we all do about it. Scientist Dr. Jane Goodall and filmmaker Louie Psihoyos, business innovators Rick Ridgeway and Sir Richard Branson, global economist John Hewson, and Garbage singer Shirley Manson add their voices to nearly one hundred others, encouraging us to find our “one thing” and commit to move ourselves and our communities towards the brightest possibilities for the future. Their answers give practical insight into their own concerns and how they tackle them by simple actions. 101 Reasons gives a colorful snapshot of common global concerns without the confusion or the guilt. Open this book to any page and you’ll meet someone new doing great things in their world, taking on the issues with practical solutions. It shows how little things turn into habits, get shared, and then make big impacts. Our contributions can make a difference. We don’t have to settle for what now passes as “normal”; we can all take small steps to shift the health of our planet and become big planet heroes. *Proceeds from this book support charities directly represented by contributors and to fund a multi-media awareness campaign for other planet heroes in the world

Roller Derby. When she discovers a league in nearby Austin, Bliss embarks on an epic journey full of hilarious tattooed girls, delicious boys in bands, and a few not-so-awesome realities even the most hard-core derby chick has to learn.
