Just a few things to think about that I thought were worth sharing:
Check out Heidi Swapp's blog HERE. The first post is a fun one about her son's birthday. I was particularly intrigued by the handmade quilt Heidi's mother made for Heidi's son for his birthday. Totally made from repurposed t-shirts and jeans. So cool!! I have this on my list to do for the girls, saving their old tshirts and jeans.
Scroll down to Heidi's second post and read the going green sign she made. It says *fix it up, wear it out, make do, do without* and she's even given a printable link. I love that saying and am trying to go a little more green around here......throwing out stuff I don't need, making do with what we have, cutting down on expensive gifts, recycling, giving to others.
And check out Ali Edwards' blog HERE. Ali's always got something good up her sleeve. I love the idea of her December Daily album and would love to do one this year. Today she shows her album that is all ready to fill in with journaling and photos. Yesterday was her Day one post, talking about what album she chose and it shows last year's album too. I think you could set up an December Daily Inspiration Station and put this together pretty quickly. And how about using only supplies you already have in your stash? That would be an awesome challenge!
Sooo, what have you done to *go green*.....to give to others.....to prepare for the holidays with your family? I'd love to hear your ideas. Last year I made advent tags with the girls and we had a great time. We'll see what I can accomplish this year.
