Create: Ham? creates for the community

I suppose it’s a little lazy to reblog other people’s posts, but I feel like sometimes, (Gipsland Granny, MyJournie, Fringe Association, for example) they’re too good not to share.

Did you know there are little jewels hidden in plain sight in most communities? Murals, stickers and tags on the sides of buildings, in alleys and on light poles, all with a story and a purpose.
