I was sent this gorgeous tutorial by LDP (follow her blog! It’s gorgeous!) and new exciting things got in the way of posting for a while, so here you go, finally!  She has loads of other fab tutorials on her blog too, such as how to make amazing Dr Who converse!

I would highly recommend this tutorial!  Books are the most commonly thrown away item given to charity shops in the UK.  If you are UK based there’s a great charity called Healthy Planet with various Books for Free shops across the UK, see locations here!

"DIY: Recycled Book Planters

This tutorial came complete with a mild existential crisis. I’ve wanted to make a craft project with books for ages now, however the thought of slicing up a tiny universe for my own selfish needs has always been too traumatic for me to bear. I eventually convinced myself that my charity shop book discoveries were only going to sit on a shelf until someone else threw them away if I didn’t buy them and use them, so why not turn them into something beautiful?
1. Start by smearing wood glue along the sides of the book, to secure the pages together. If you plan on using more than one book for the planter, glue them together without putting glue in the area you intend to cut, as this will make it more difficult to cut through.
2.Mark the area you intend to cut out, where your plant will go.
3.Use a craft knife to cut out the marked area. It may be hard to cut through the cover of the book initially, but just keep going - it’ll slice through eventually. :)
4.Once the area is as deep as you want it to be, glue the piece of plastic bag into the cut area, and trim the edges to be level with the cover of the book. This will stop water and dirt leaking into the book once your plant is inside.
5.Put your plant into the book, and look after it as your new pot plant.

So sick of people who pretend their problem is with the word “feminism” rather than the concept of gender equality.

Salutation

O generation of the thoroughly smug and thoroughly uncomfortable,
I have seen fishermen picnicking in the sun,
I have seen them with untidy families,
I have seen their smiles full of teeth
and heard ungainly laughter.
And I am happier than you are,
And they were happier than I am;
And the fish swim in the lake
      and do not even own clothing.

-Ezra Pound

  • nice friend person: hey, how've you been?
  • me: capitalism is crushing me. i am barely surviving. i am full of toxic resentment. i want revenge.
"A glass of milk, a cup of yogurt, a slice of cheese, all require enormous amounts of violence, exploitation, mutilation, enslavement, theft and murder. None of these products come from happy, willing cows. All of these products can be made from almonds, soy beans, coconuts, cashews and other plants. It’s really a simple choice of compassion, justice and empathy."

Vegetarians, you took a great step by not eating meat and it’s ok but please don’t forget that the dairy industry is just as cruel as the meat industry. Inform yourselves!

Not just for those in Detroit, but anywhere where the right to water is being restricted or denied!

hey everyone, this post has only gotten a thousand or so notes and only a single follower of mine has reblogged this from me specifically.
Detroit has been shutting water off for entire neighborhoods regardless of whether people paid bills or not. Even if they didn’t, should that really mean that they should die of thirst? Should there really be a cost to stay alive?
Please, spread this. Link it on other sites so someone down the line who needs this anywhere can take back water, something that should be the right of every human being.


Ya’ll do know this is aginst the law and they do have a thing called a drill. They will catch on quick if everyone has the same excuse.

It’s called civil disobedience. If a lot of people do this (part of that strength in numbers thing) then the city government will have to recognize they can’t afford the resources or manpower to undo this direct action because it takes more than a drill. It takes various of amounts of tools in the hands of skilled workers to safely and properly excavate the concrete and replace and repair the key and valve system as well as surrounding plumbing infrastructure.It’s resistance to injustice. It may not be legal, it may not be the most effective and efficient, but for many it’s all they’ve got.
