nap time

Miss H. fell asleep on me watching James and the Giant Peach. What a great movie :) I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

I've been working on quite a bit of refashioning lately. Seems to be a bit more inspiring than making bags and hooded scarves over and over again. I get bored too easily.

Now, I would post pictures, but I'm on a borrowed lap top that DOESN'T HAVE A MEMORY CARD SLOT!!!? It's a new computer too.. so dumb.

Anyways, I'm currently using some of the many blackberries I have picked (There will be many more tomorrow as well) to dye one of the shirts I refashioned. I'm not sure what colour it is going to turn out, but Im pretty exited to share my first dying experience.

This week, my plan is to make up a small tutorial for the SEA (Students for Environmental Awareness) group at the local high school. It's a group that I co-founded when I was in my senior year, that works on learning, and then teaching others about sustainability, and effects of what we do on a day to day basis. I haven't had much to do with it since I graduated, but now that my sister A. is in the high school (14 on monday.. YIKES!!! :S), I want to encourage her to join and make some new friends and get involved (she's not much of a club joiner).

I'm making the tutorial from one I found on Pinterest (obsessed, btw), and adding a bit more to it. It's for sandwich and snack containers made from recycled milk jugs. 5 minute project and about 1/2" piece of sticky velcro and you have yourself a makeshift, reusable lunch container.
