Board No. 16 - Newspapers Aren't Dead!

When I saw this bag on the Metro this morning, I was inspired to do two posts. One, my previous one, was about being crafty, and this, is about how newspapers aren't dying — at least not in the Etsy world. I work at a newspaper, so I have to believe there is a future for journalism beyond Twitter. Even if you don't read them, you can recycle them with many different crafty uses like several of the sellers below.
