My website, MissMalaprop.com, is indie driven and community-minded. I believe in supporting small business, independent designers & artists, and people & organizations who are working to make the world a better place. I believe, whenever possible, in buying local, independently produced, handmade, sustainable, recycled, organic, fair-trade, environmentally-friendly products and services. I believe that one person can make a difference and that everyone can be that person.
