why I forage

I am the type of person who likes to use what she has. It might be a harder road, but I enjoy transforming something into what I need it to be. Also, it makes a heck of a lot of sense from an environmental standpoint. I mean geeze, these logs are just rotting away, why not make something awesome out of them! Such a better way to go than killing or damaging a beautiful living tree, or going to a craft store to buy wood where they process and mass murder trees to get their boring, perfect product. Foraged wood isn’t perfect. It isn’t pristine, white wood ready for me to make my mark on it, but that’s why I love it.  It’s MORE than perfect, it’s a beautiful mess.
