Create It Green Prize Now on to my project… I recently bought a cute top from Target and when I pulled off the tag it caught my eye. It was super colorful and I thought, “hey I could use this as an embellishment!” So here I used it to describe my staff a couple of years ago. We did a crazy scavenger hunt through town and they had so much ENERGY… So here’s a tip, before you toss out all those tags from your new clothes, you may find something worth hanging on to!! Forever 21 one has a pretty great one with a pink and yellow flower! Also the lettering is on the awesome recycled paper from Green Field Paper Company. Check them out.

Pure EnergySIDE NOTE: This is also my submission for the May Guest Design Challenge at Sketchy Thursdays! Shout out to Sketchy Thursdays!

So what do I do to be GREEN? I reuse and repurpose as much as I can. I hate to throw anything away.

This blog hop will run from today, April 22nd until Sunday, April 26th, midnight PST. We will be drawing for winners on April 27.

Follow along in our blog hop! Your next stop is Tanya
