What do you do with your Trader Joe's bags?
Love that store! Anyone else?
Well, this is what we did with our trader joe's bags today.
So cute! Can't wait to wrap presents with them.
Okay, some turned out better than others but I think people will still like that Sam made it herself. And really, its just going to be torn off in a flurry of Christmas morning madness by the cousins so it doesn't really matter anyway!
Have you entered the Baby Legs giveaway yet? Low entries so check it out and enter! Everyone knows a kid that could use some good quality organic and ADORABLE socks/leg warmers/tights!.
And in case you didn't know this month I am challenging all of you to try having a greener holiday. So far we are making our own wrapping paper, buying local when we can, tried making our own advent calendar (seriously go see the original because it is much cuter), use light timers on ALL of our Christmas lights, bought energy efficient lights for the ones that we needed to replace, and some more things that I am just not remembering right now! What are you doing?
If you still have some Christmas shopping to do consider shopping from one of these AMAZING companies.
TerraCycle - fun products made directly from trash! And you can collect and sell them your trash too.
Reco jeans - Some incredible looking jeans made from recycled materials!
Urth Bags - how about a new purse made out of newspapers, plastic, or JUICE BOXES?
Wood from the Hood - for some great wood products from urban reclaimed wood! Coasters, cutting boards, picture frames, all beautiful!
Just a few random companies I have found and wish I could buy a ton of stuff from! Happy shopping.
The Nitty Gritty!
You might remember the last time we made wrapping paper my sister made potato stamps for the kids to use. I wasn't that creative this time, just used cookie cutters and then our fingers! Sam loved the craft.
