Weekend of Food

I think my weekend was mostly about food~ Gardening and Dehydrating all the food in my house that was about to go bad! I made a bunch of Fruit roll ups from a big stash of strawberries that I thought my daughter would eat up but didn't. I dried half of the quanity when I first got them. So I blended them added some ground flax seed and honey they taste fabulous but my son is so hip to them probably because they aren't filled with all kinds of crap. I also have home made granola and bananna's in there right now. Yesterday was the day for the veggies~ Celery, onions & japalones. The onions are so good you can just eat them right out of the jar!

I also got my first produce out of the garden! whoot whoot green beans. I made green bean casserole. I am excited that the garden is going to grow and fruit like crazy because last year it wasn't so good here in Michigan. No one's tomatoes grew and cucumbers weren't coming up either. We had alot of cold days so the tomatoes just stayed green!

Old School Wrapper Bracelet's

So lately I have been obsessed with these wrapper bracelets! I found this fantastic site called Ecoist with all kinds of bags but I guess my problem is that they use run offs from companies not actual used wrappers but I guess what is a company to do with the run offs? so in all fairness I shouldn't be bitter. But then they send them off to Peru to be made! Ok I should be happy that something is being done with the run offs even if they are being sent to Peru but what about good old USA? Because sure you are using what might have been thrown away wrapper run offs but you are not doing the environment any good by then shipping those run offs to Peru. There is good and bad to everything so why does it bug me so?? All I can say is that my chip bag bracelets are  American Eaten (chips of course) & American Made~ if that matters to anyone. I really am trying not to be bitter.

New Wristlet Design!

I whipped these wristlet's up just before Liberty Fest~ I wanted a cute Wristlet that was big enough for all the essentials but small enough for us ladies on the go! What do you think??

Radical Recycks hooks up with Recycled Lps!

I had a show this weekend at the Liberty Fest in Canton, Michigan~ I didn't know if the show was any good and the booth price was pricey so I asked my old new friend Wendy if she wanted to split it with me since she makes purses out of old lps as well as journal~ they are so cool she actually has a patent pending on her purses I never seen one made like that! Of course I was coming up with all kinds of ideas for her to make with the lps. Funny how we can come up with ideas for others so easily! She even painted that sign in our booth on a used vendor banner from Home depot!! It's it great! she thinks it's crappy so I took it home with me so she didn't ditch it! I think our stuff goes well together so I see more split vendor shows in our future! but not Liberty fest ever again it was like a home show with business's trying to shove stuff down your throat and I think we were the only booth that was handmade! But I had fun with my friend and meeting her fantastic family~ fireworks to end the night!
You can see her stuff here

Summer Slippers

So I have been walking around barefooted since it got hot which isn't a bad thing it just drives me crazy! so I opted to wear socks but that made my feet hot! What to do?? so yesterday I googled Summer Slipper Pattern and found these cuties! I was up until 3am whipping them up~ not because it took long to make but because I had the idea to look for a pattern at Midnight!
Here's were I found the pattern  Lady Harvatine

Water Bottles

I found this through "The Daily Green" and just ordered a set~ buy 4 get one free!!
How Fantastic are these because face it when you have to lug those water bottles home from the office it's gets to be a hassle on some days~ but I just grin and bare it as I know it's for the greater good. BUT with these handy dandy water bottles you can fold them up and shove them in your purse or even pocket! and you can freeze them too boot! get for those people who have to lug their kids around to sporting events~ Sorry folks my kids aren't athletic so I didn't have to get up at the butt crack of dawn on Saturdays and Sundays to watch them play sports.

Plastic Wreath

I have had this vision for awhile now to make a "Plastic Wreath" and today it's finally come to fruit! I love it so and can't wait to hang it on my front door! I will be the entrances to my Trashy house filled with Love!

Soap Box time! I don't buy bottled water as I believe it's a waste of Money and Wasteful! We all surived the
tap water growing up and for god sake we drank from a hose as kids! So you don't like the taste now that's your reason huh? then buy a filter for your sink tap! I know there are times that it's what's available and your parched so I won't fault you for that but then make sure it gets recycled or better yet find a new use for that plastic bottle!
