I am taking this opportunity to show a thank you card I received from a friend and "Give-away" winner, Deborah. She sent me this card and I felt I had to share it because she made this herself. I make cards too but this took quite a bit of time and effort. The back ground is painted and "spattered" and the word, Thanks, is made up of tiny little pieces of paper. It is really special. Thank YOU Deborah!!
Lastly, I wanted to show two new "items" I've made from a recycled salad box. I actually have a BS and MS in Environmental Science and Policy and started out recycling back in the 60's. Kind of catapulted me into the two degrees.
The first is the lid of the box which will make a great palette for rolling out paint on a brayer. Very cool.
The second is the box that contained the greens. It can be used for LWI dyeing for friends who come to play unprepared. I have a lot of these boxes but I just recently kept the lid for printing.
I love finding way to keep plastic out of the trash stream. I also belong to a special recycling program which takes 1-8 plastic, plastic films, old appliances and well as the usual metal, glass, paper, cardboard.
