Green Tip Tuesday - The Holidays are Coming

Oh boy... are you as excited as I am?! I'm excited because we already got all our gifts and we hardly spend a penny and a lot of them are recycled, either bought second hand, made from recycled material and/or I will be making them with organic ingredients!

Here are my two girls last year.... (another green tip, make your own greeting cards!)

I'm also excited to announce another edition of Green Tip Tuesday, Holiday Edition. Starting next week we will be featuring other Green Bloggers and their Green Tips for the seasons. I wanted to start earlier but this month went by so fast. Seriously, I can't believe this week will already be DECEMBER!

For this week I wanted to tell you about a green tip I learned from my grandmother. It's something I do every year and my mother did as well. It's kinda like re-gifting but not really. We use old Christmas Greeting Cards as gift tags! We have never bought gift tags. I also have implemented cloth gift tags as a twist to the family tradition.

Just punch a hole and you're done. You can add a bow or buttons for an added personal touch. I usually let my girlies paint the back of the whole card a matching color first then cut, makes it a bit less messy! lol

So off I go to start wrapping, decorating and cutting for this year's holiday season. I hope you all have a terrific Green Tuesday! If you have a green tip to share with me and my readers don't hesitate to share it with us. Just click on the Contact button on the top of my blog, just scroll all the way down!

  1. We do that too! I actually just picked up the craft knife that you slip your finger through so that you can just "point & cut" (don't know what ts called). Now I can cut the details out of the cards to make tags. I used to just use a tiny sewing scissor or a standard craft knife and it would take me forever!

    I'm now following you through the Green Blog Hop. I hope you'll do the same! You can find me @ http://sofiasideas.com/

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…
