Monday's can be rough... But I'm here to help.

In celebration of my 15th year selling my handmade stuff... 
I am going to be featuring things I've seen on blogs, on the internet, in books
...wherever inspiration strikes! On making new items from old goods..
hence, MondayUPs (upcycling)...


On a completely (or not so) different post...
Today I wanted to take a moment to be serious, 
and talk about organ donation.

I am a firm believer in "not taking it with you."
After all, it's not like you will be using your old parts in your next life... or in  Heaven... Summerland... or whatever you believe.
I realize that there are some religions who disagree...
and I honor that.

However, for the rest of you...
let me implore you to at least consider donating your usable organs, bones and tissues to those who could really use it.

and so... rather than extol the virtues of donation, 
I am going to list several sites to get you thinking...
and ones that offer much more information than I could include here.

Wiki article
The National Network of Organ Donors
Donate Life America
US Dept Of Health and Human Services: Organ Donation
Life Legacy Foundation

((on a personal note... I have chosen to donate all organs, 
tissues, bones for the service of others, and donated any remains to science))
