Got all your Christmas pressies ready to go, but forgot to get any wrapping paper?

Never fear, the lovely folk at Tinch Design Studio have some very cool printable wrapping paper for you to download.

If red's not the colour you had in mind, or you need to keep the kids occupied for a while, you can even download a 'colour-in-yourself' version!  YAY.

As it turns out
when most people tell you they want to change things

what they really mean to say
is they want to change 
the size and color
of the room 
in which things take place.
- Dallas Clayton "Revolution"

I have discovered Dallas Clayton's totally cool poetry, books, artwork ... I want to wallpaper my house with it.

Small Ways to Make a Big Difference

Small Ways to Make a Big Difference is a free e-book compiled by Raam Dev is full of really awesome 'small' things you can do to make the world a better place.

I haven't read it all - but so far this idea, from Ali Dark, is my favourite:

Vote with your money
I want to introduce you to the wall. The wall holds up a raging dam of human potential. It's held together with money – the money the same people spend.  Change how you spend money and the wall collapses, and the world changes.  Drastically. Forever.
If you think that soda is bad for people (which it sure as hell is), never, ever, ever, buy soda. That's a vote in the ballot box. Same goes for meat, alcohol and other plagues on humanity.
Want more organic food? Bite the bullet and buy organic. That's a vote for the organic industry and more power to them.
Every dollar in your pocket is a vote. Don't forget it. Every single one is counted. It's a failsafe system. It's perfect democracy.
You can download the e-book from here.

Which of the tips do you feel most inspired by?

I love it when it rains overnight after I have planted out new vegetable seeds!

Today my 3 yr old and I planted radishes, purple carrots, orange carrots, and a couple of varieties of beans. And now its raining. Fabulous!!
