One day isn't enough for ... Earth Day!

The more and more I learn about how much small changes can help the earth -- the sillier it seems to not incoporate those little changes into everyday life. I came across a great blog today (Team Eco-Etsy) that has a fabulous tutorial on making inner envelopes out of magazine ad catalog pages.

Check it out and start repurposing your magazines and junk mail -- it's easy! I can't wait to try this!

What I've been working on...

So by now you know of my obsession with folding paper. I've been busy, when not at work, folding assembling and experimenting with paper. The latest creation is a 5" x 7" pouch made from repurposed magazines, lined with cotton fabric with a zipper and the outside is sealed with a water based sealant. I have been test driving this one in my purse as a makeup bag and it has held up REALLY well. My compact is peeking out to give a sense of the actual size.

Please tell me what you think and what you would expect to pay for something like this at an arts and crafts fair. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks fellow Crafties!

These will be making their debut at the Spring Bash at South Side on Lamar on May 16, 2009.

Let out that sigh of relief. Another tax day is over. I hope all your forms are filed and you are taking a break from it until next year! I hope the nation has let out that collective sigh of relief.

Coppell Farmer's Market Spring Festival

The Coppell Farmer's Market Spring Festival was originally planed for May 2, 2009. I got a call just yesterday saying it has been rescheduled so that the farmer's have more time to be sure to have enough produce to have a good harvest.

The new date is MAY 30 -- so mark your calendar. If you're in DFW, come check it out.

Dallas Pottery Invitational

Over the weekend I checked
out the Dallas Pottery Invitational
at Southside on Lamar with some friends.
It was a great show. I saw something
on each artist's table that I was dying to take home.
I couldn't pick one fave artist -- there were just too many cool artists there. There were so many wonderful color paletes, textures and shapes. I can't wait to go to this show again next year.

I highly reccomend it!
