The preservation of traditions and skills is an important part of our community and family history. As Rose stated in “Let the Good Times Roll”, “It is the harmonic convenience of our food, our music, our creativity, our eccentricity, our neighborhoods, and our joy of living. All at once” (361). During the fall of every year, towns across Georgia host a festival of some sort. Whether it be the Yellow Daisy Festival at Stone Mountain Park or the Friendship Festival in Social Circle, local artist and craftsmen come together to display and sell their handmade items.

Many schools entered a fashion design contest to make outrageous objects out of everyday items. Students are required to use one recycled item over and over to make a design that functions, as opposed to fine art. (Jones 18) All of the students had creative ideas, and embraced the fun factor completely. One student made a dress of of plastic bags and floating toy fish. Other students created even crazier items. A chandelier made out of hamster tubes, and a dress fashioned out of soda cans are just a couple of the students’ crazy projects. Everyday items can be created into fun and intriguing art
Having a present interest in vintage and retro fashion led me towards the idea of a vintage themed art piece. I contemplated a range of ideas and after some compromise, I decided to work with the theme ‘vintage’ by devising ideas around crafting everyday objects into a piece of art. Vintage items, including, classic books, cameras, type-writers, cushions, buttons, prints, wall paper, etc. were all considered. I wanted to expand on my knowledge and talents, therefore, I decided on sewing a stylised and imaginative artwork combined with the use of appropriate, complimenting materials.
Quilts have had many purposes and meanings all throughout history. They were used to shield individuals from the cold in the harsh winters, they were used for fashion, or they were made just to pass time. Over the years the purpose and meaning changed for the making of quilts. In early modern times women expressed their feelings and love by making quilts, which they had the pleasure to pass down to their sons or daughters. Quilts that have been passed down through generation to generation have some of these meaning; love, bond, and trust. My Avid class is making a quilt to represent the bond, respect, and trust we all formed together. We have all been entrusted to make a piece of decorated fabric with symbols that represents my class and I.

Quilting is an artform that has been passed down through generations. The origins of quilting is still unknown to the public but it is known that it has been around for centuries. The art has traveled through sad and happy times in our world 's history, and it will continue to do that in the future. Quilting is defined as the joining together of layers of fabrics with lines stitching to form a bed cover, warm garment, or for decorative effect. Quilting has been pegged as being an older person 's activity or boring, but that simply is not true. More and more American children are being enrolled into sewing and quilting classes each year.

She was fortunate in that her grandparents owned a bookstore that sold crafting materials, so she had access to modeling clay, paints, inks, pastels and more. Her first foray into polymer came when she wanted to decorate some boxes that she had made and was searching for wood clay. Polymer fit perfectly into her plans, and a few months after she started, she realized that this was what she had been looking for and began to create beads and jewelry.
“Today U.S. citizen’s produce over 250 million tons of municipal solid waste, before recovery, which is close to one ton per person”, says Jay Withgott’s 6th edition book. The world is growing in population and people are just exceeding in the amount of waste they are adding to the Earth. Waste is defined as any unwanted material from a human activity or process. Municipal solid waste is an extensive problem in the United States, but so is Industrial solid waste and Hazardous waste. If everyone repurposed items that can be reused, we would be saving plenty of resources. Recycling is the one of the best ways to get rid of waste. Recycling is the process of turning used materials into materials that can be reused as a material or for a new purpose. Per the North Carolina Data Waste Management, the amount of trash North Carolinians throw away, would fill enough Dumpsters to line the length of North Carolina’s Interstate 40 more than six times in one year. That is almost 2,750 miles of dumpsters each year. We are going to focus on how recycling saves energy, conserves waste by reusing materials, and protects natural resources if recycling materials are being used. This relates to the protection of land and ecological resources and why one should recycle.
