Happy Earth Day

Hello Everyone,

Happy Earth Day! I hope you are having a wonderful day and are giving the earth a nice break today by trying to do something eco-conscious.

I have always tried to do a little bit to help out the earth; this interest began at a young age when I was the Ecology Commissioner in the seventh grade. Funny, but true. Nowadays, I try to do my part with little things, by shopping vintage and by finding ways to use objects that would otherwise be thrown away. I actually have come to the point where I prefer shopping at flea markets, etc. because there is a challenge to it and such high rewards.

If you are feeling in the mood for some DIY on Earth Day – I found a few great projects over at marthastewart.com

Here are my favorites…

Transform an old shirt into a shopping bag. I don’t know about you but I have a bajillion t-shirts. People may give me strange looks at the grocery store, but at least the Earth will be happy.
Find out how to do this here.

There are so many great belt buckles out there, tons sold super cheap at flea markets. Martha has taken belt buckles that seem useless without a belt and transformed them into a great beside memento or even better as a fridge magnet.

Complete instructions available here.

Have some cereal (while reading my blog) and then once your done use the box to organize your bills and paperwork. Oh Martha. Only she can make Special K look so special.

Instructions available here.

Happy earth day! What are some things you do to help the earth? Do you know of any fun recyclable craft projects? I would love to hear about them!

      Well, let me rephrase that “flea markets and super high end, designer shops to keep my husband on his toes.”

    LOL. You guys crack me up. This weekend I plan on recycling/wearing clothes from your closet and promise to wash and reuse the same champagne glass all weekend. Cheers to Vegas!
