Green Tip Tuesday - Feeling Crafty

I love doing crafts! I also have my daughter who is at a perfect age to want to do them with me. I'm going to savor these moments....

So, I only breastfed for three months, so I've been formula feeding since then. I am a recycle freak but I've kept a few of those formula canisters. I first used them for my 5 year olds' birthday. She had a art party. So I used them and covered them with construction paper and painted paint drippings and filled each of them with different colored tissue paper. It was so fun.... I'll find a picture to show them to you.

I got a letter from the teacher this week saying that Yvette's pencil/crayon box broke and to send a new one ASAP. I really didn't want to go out and make new one... so I grabed a few formula canisters and did some trial runs to see if I could turn them into a pencil/crayon box. I did it. I put a old coaster on the bottom of the can and covered the outside with felt and used another coster for the top. My five year old helped me make a few more... we have some birthdays coming up. She glued some foam hearts and flowers on them and they look adorable.

So for my green tip is to recycle something that you can re-purpose and use it or give it as a gift.

Here are some more ideas:

Use rusted or old forks to make unique magnets (use fabric and ribbon to decorate)
Turn cereal boxes into a new magazine holder or book end (wrap in scrap fabric)
Use glass jars to send a beautiful bouquet of flowers (decorate with paint)

If you have a green tip to share please send it to me.

Ungrateful during Thanksgiving?

Hubby made me cry on Thanksgiving.... The usual share what you're thankful for, he just went all out talking about how we had one of the toughest years and we were apart from each other for six months and how much he missed us and it just sucked. Ohhhh, the waterfalls!! But yeah, it was the longest year ever. Speaking of Thanksgiving.... HAPPY THANKSGIVING! Reminds me of something that's been on my mind....

We just moved out of the valley and guess what?! The worst part moving to a new place was not the moving. Before we moved I scoped out our neighborhood, grocery stores, parks and I joined several mom groups. I knew negative Nancy’s were bound to share their troubles in Facebook groups but I’ve never heard so many complaints in one day.

I don’t know what it is but I don’t like when people complain. I just think to myself, “Did you really have to share that?” or about an easy solution to that complaint. There would have been a better way to spend your time than writing a n…
