Happy February!

Sorry the "green" posts ended so abruptly! I was doing so well posting every weekday until the last day of the month. Ah well... Hope you found some new ideas and/or things to think about. The thing to keep in mind is that we do what we can. We have been blessed living in a society that has many luxuries. Perhaps, too many, but it is not entirely reasonable that we can just stop everything and revert to an agrarian lifestyle. The environmentalists would be happy if we did, but imagine how mad you would make the economists - here on the brink of a recession!

Switching gears to February (the raddest month of the year) and Valentine's Day. I hope to do a few new craft projects in the next couple of weeks. For now, here is a summary of projects from years' past (all totally ready for your interpretation):

Asian inspired

Glitter heart garland
Felt Valentine holder
Decoupaged box
Simple cards
Patch t-shirts
Tea favors
Heart hot mitt
Warm Fuzzy
Shadow box
Felt fortune cookies (pre-Martha, thank you very much)
Candy jar
Recipe cards in a tin
Japanese prayer hearts

Cherry Chip cupcakes
Red Hot Velvet cupcakes
Strawberry Rice Krispie treats
