Library Visits

So I've refrained from posting every library book that I get based on the fact that not every book I get ends up being great, but this week, I walked away with two books I really like thus far:

It has great instructions on making your own recycled paper. Can't wait to read more....

It has lots of ideas for you basic trash. I'm excited to try some stuff out!

And don't forget this week's giveaway and artist interview: HERE!


  1. Oh my goodness. I checked out that Eco Craft book from the library here a couple months ago. I ended up doing several different projects from there, and they are really cool. I especially liked using old milk and juice jugs to make really cool candle or lamp shades. Good find! I did the vases on the cover too. They're pretty cool.

  2. I make home made paper with my pre-k kids, I made a deckel out of scrap wood and screen. We tear up paper that is in the recycle box and soak it in warm water. I have an old blender that I use to to make to pulp or surry. Put it in a plastic pan and dip the deckel in. After you flip it out on a towel, use a sponge to soak up the water. We put flower seeds in some, glitter and sparkle in others. We make stationary for our moms! I need to check out these books!

  3. I wish I had time to do stuff like that. I am hardly finding time to finish my small sewing projects :( Oh and I epically failed at having a blog. But I am learning to cook. Your blog makes me jealous... it makes me wanna be YOU! haha. :)
