A Round Tuit 238



Welcome to the last linky party of 2014!
 A place where you can link up your posts and creations, and be inspired by others.
Although I'll be travelling for the first few weeks of 2015, I hope you'll still stop by and link up your projects. I'll be checking them out when I return!


Tuits are very hard to come by, especially the round ones. For years people have been saying, "I'll do it as soon as I get a round tuit". Well now you can have one of your very own, and all those jobs that have needed doing will finally get done!
 
 
 

Link up your own projects - old or new - no rules - just share your creativity and inspiration!
I'd love if you grabbed the button - then you can have your very own Round Tuit!
And of course we all love visitors and comments so do visit some of the other links!

I will feature my favourites on this post next week.

Meet Mitch the turtle!


Meet Mitch the Turtle!

He arrived at our house a few days ago from the WWF.
Through the sales of my new ebook of eco-friendly shopping bag patterns and tutorials I am now sponsoring a turtle through the WWF with a monthly donation.
$1 from each of my ebooks sold contributes towards this.


Mitch also brought with him this rather cool fold up shopping bag:


Upcycled from old plastic bottles !


I decided to call him Mitch thanks to the suggestion of a good friend. I few days ago here in Cairns, 6 turtles were rescued from being tangled in a ghost net off the coast by a Customs Boat. You can read the story here. The customs boat was called The Dame Roma Mitchell, so I took the name Mitch from that as it seemed a good fit! Thanks Michelle for your great naming suggestion!

 I wanted to once again thank those who have already bought my e-book and so contributed towards sponsoring this endangered animal and so helping to ensure their survival.


If you would like to purchase a copy of my e-book for just the cost of a cup of coffee - click here!


Thanks for your support.
