With each seed we plant a new idea!

Today is the first day of our April vacation from school!  The girls and I have a jammed packed week with rock climbing, archery, hiking, letterboxing, and cupcake eating!  That last event is the most important one!  The weather is supposed to be fantastic so we’re donning our shorts and suntan lotion and are determined to enjoy the week.

I’m hoping to do some new and exciting things – I found a really great youtube video on making pins from stamps and Crystal Effects and I want to make some recyclable/plantable cards for Earth Day next week.  Hopefully I won’t break my blender!  I think the recyclable cards would make a great mother’s day gift with seeds placed in them.  I’ve had it on my list of ‘to-dos’ for years but never seem to get to it.  This year – we’re doing it!  It kind of goes hand and hand with the forever green theme GS has this year.   

Here’s a good youtube tutorial that I got from one of my GS Blogs – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BUH6eu0MBs.  I never thought to shred the paper first and then put it into the blender.  That would make things so much easier.  The screen means a trip to the hardware store for me, but I think my girls would love to do it.  Definitely need to practice it first so I can figure out the time for 15 girls to be able to do it.

Hope it gives you an idea for Earth Day and trying new things.  I’ll post a picture of our paper when we do it!  Have a Magical Day!
