Way Cool for Earth Day!

I read about this great giveaway on twitter from figsandginger. It's a total win-win-win. You plant a tree, take a picture, submit it and get free jewelry! How cool is that? Read all the details here.

This is the image and narration I submitted;

Please meet Jane Juniper. I was pleased to meet her at the nursery and HAD to adopt her. She likes to sit outside with me and watch the sunset. She cleans the air. She's not a big talker but she has already made friends with a pink origami crane. One of my friends has agreed to plant her in their yard when she outgrows my balcony.

I absolutely love this idea for Earth Day! So fun!

Happy April Fool's!

LOL! This morning I signed onto Etsy.com only to notice that the "Etsy" in the orange box was mispelled. I totally forgot it was April Fool's. For a minute I really thought I saw wrong. I tweeted about it and @TheRita reminded me of the date today! :) Thank you for the gentle reminder kind tweeter. The reminder helped me be more aware of the April Fool's pranks.
