green is the new black.





Earth Day was yesterday. What did you do? What do you do everyday to save our Earth? 

I started my buying celebration early & bought cloth wipes & numerous diapers throughout this week.  Today I took B to the park & we had a picnic.  I was disappointed in myself for not already having reusable lunch/snack bags, but I carried unpaper towels & reusable water bottles, so I'm trying not to be too hard on myself!  This brought me to the decision that, weather permitting, I'd like to get outside to eat lunch at least twice a week! 

I needed to run to Michaels for a Cookie Lee donation gift (see my CL blog for those details) & while there, I decided to pick up a canvas bag.  I have tons of bags. Seriously, tons. They're my guilty pleasure. And I always think about making a cute canvas tote, so yesterday, in honor of Earth Day, I did it! 

Here's the finished product!  Perfect for library books, quick trips if one of my other thousand bags is a mess, a few groceries, etc!

And here's a few from the park:
