I was on an assignment for a cool art/crafting supply upcycling venture. Donated goods are sold as art and crafting supplies at a fraction of their original cost. It is a good way to keep waste low and keep things affordable. To learn more, go to http://www.inlander.com/spokane/reduce-reuse-create/Content?oid=2428631

The Otis Orchards Library, in Washington, has a seed library. You can check out seeds to plant. They only ask that you bring seeds back from your garden at the end of the season. I didn’t know such a thing existed until I received an assignment to photograph the seed library. To read more, go to http://www.inlander.com/spokane/from-the-ground-up/Content?oid=2428654

I got to cover the St. Patrick’s Day Parade today in Spokane. The rain stopped right before the parade started sparing the thousands gathered from a wet event. http://www.inlander.com/Bloglander/archives/2015/03/14/photos-st-patricks-day-parade
