Going Green for Earth Day and Every Day

Since April 22 is Earth Day... The Blog Carnival topic is "Let's Go Green! What can you do to make your Etsy business or your home a little bit greener?"

If you are a regular reader, you know I love recycling and reusing things in my craft. With the Etsy Blogger's theme of going green it seemed like the perfect time to share some tutorials and inspiration that will help you go green in your crafting or your every day life. All these ideas come from Craftstylish.com which if you haven't discovered it yet, is a very cool site.

Lunch sacks









And finally just for fun, make a hot bikini out of t-shirts

I'm so excited about earth day and everyone doing their part. I recently started making my own envelopes from repurposed children's books. Please check them out at www.studiomme.etsy.com.
