The digital age has made nearly all of us ‘publishers’ of content, making most of us writer in ways that, a decade or so ago, did not exist. Tara Moss
It’s pleasing to know we are in the company of greats like Shakespeare!! RUDE lives to explore what can be reused, not just from our dustbin but others’ dustbins and skips as well. RUDE Girl writes about our ways with potential and discarded waste, most days.
RUDE likes the notion of promoting simple reuse of everyday things, compared to fancy upcycling of stuff. The more grassroots, make do and mend a project is, the more our senses are excited, by the rescuing and revamping of the mundane.
This week over on Facebook @ruderepair, I was inspired to make dishcloths from an old beach towel. And, I was also inspired by a follower and friend Jacqui, to add sleeves from a garment to a pair of long johns.
Below are the links to these two videos, if you have not already seen them.
I guess the will to make use of what is already at hand, is very strong for RUDE. We do not want too much more stuff in our lives, but we certainly want to reuse, care for and maintain what we have.
RUDE had a visit recently from Sue, a follower and friend, who highlighted that she loved reading what RUDE Girl was writing about. She suggested there may be a book in it! She liked the human element of what RUDE showcased on a daily basis.
Sue was not interested in blogs with statistics and lots of text to wade through. RUDE Girl studied statistics at university for a year. I was very good at the subject BUT the last thing I want to be including in my creative writing musing is stats!
By writing stories about, and showcasing examples of, the wealth making possibilities in waste, RUDE hopes to inspire and/or encourage others to Beat The Man!
