Gift Card Score

Look what one local store collected for me! Yes, they (won't say who) are helping keep plastic out of the landfill~ I can't get everyone to do it so I will be very excited for the ones that do! Now off to make something with them (already got necklaces down but maybe some earrings and bracelet to match!)

No Pictures :(

I have no Camera it's driving me up a wall! *& I can can't find any of my back up's~ oh take that back the one I found is no longer in working condition! My daughter claims not to have it but everytime I find it I discover over 100 pictures that she has taken of herself on it! So I have been using my phone which is a great camera but then you have to email them to yourself and for whatever reason that didn't seem to be working out for me the other day when I took over 50 pictures of stuff that I needed to post! Ok breathe deep and hopefully it will turn up!

My beans are sprouting! I just read an article in Urban Farm on growing micro greens indoors which of course got me excited~I just imagined my house with all these sprouts all over the place but then remembered I don't live alone so I will just sprout one jar at a time! Its amazing how quickly they grow and are ready to eat in 4~5 days now how to trick hubby into eating them!

Yummy Paper!

I love paper & have to control myself when its back to school time & the paper is piled high. While @ Target this year I found tree free paper! Its actually made from stone. It feels so odd silky smooth yet heavy. I have yet to write in it for fear I will never have it again!

Well actually there's one more truck loads worth he is suppose to drop off so I think my sack longing is no more. Now what to make with them?
