red, white & blue

February 6, 2008 – I don’t have cable. I get one newspaper a week (Saturday’s G&M). I rarely make it to watch Lloyd at 11pm. And I am trying to keep “surfing” to a minimum at work (b/c when it is cold and snowy out, all I want to do is sit at the computer with tea in hand and read blogs and headlines). Suffice it to say, I am having a hard time keeping up to date on what is transpiring in American politics. In a treasured 1/2 hour of surfing today, I came across an American art & craft blog which posted her favorite Etsy politically themed craft. And though the focus of this shop is Canadian, I had to post some of these works.

  1. Totally cool! I live here and I don’t have time to keep up with the news. Didn’t realize it was inspiring such creativity! I’m more interested in what real people on the web are doing than I am in the news on TV.
