thrift is empowering

I have a little book entitled Raising Kids with Just a Little Cash. Somewhere near the front of the book, the author recommends repeating her mantra (Thrift is empowering!) if one needs encouragement. I repeat it often. (Art as a career is a rollercoaster.) This book can open your eyes to a Whole New World of Frugality. But back to the subject at hand...

I've been thinking about the state of my yarn stash and my desire to be more committed to current projects. Then what do I see? A fine example of Knitting from Stash from the A.D.D. Knitter. She suggested that a medal might be in order to recognize her resourcefulness. I have to say that I agree! As my little PeeWee would say, "Jood Job!" So here's your medal, Heather. :)




I have stayed up way too late messing around with the graphics program. Gentle readers, if any of you know of someone who deserves recognition of their empowered knitting, please feel free to snag this award (saving it on your computer, of course) and spread the love. Thrifty Knitters everywhere, I salute you!

What a fun little button! And her drive-through stash sweater is pretty awesome too! That was so kind of you to reward her:)

I think you deserve an award for being a resourceful graphics program user. It's a lovely award you made and very nice of you to make it.

Yeah for Val! Give yourself an award. We never talk any more. Good thing for your blog. I've been turning the other cheek the last few weeks due to a crack on my ischium. Isn't life grand? Can I use your award for being a resourceful sitter?

Your sistie
