a day late

Here I am ...a day late...I completely forgot about Earth day. I had a procedure done the day before and I was still a little loopy. But.....

YIKES! We are killing our planet. I could not believe the trash swirl in the Pacific they showed on Oprah yesterday. It's so sad.....and scary! The poor animals. I can't stand to see animals mistreated.

I have been recycling my junk mail into art. I want to cut down on the plastic's but how do you do that when the things you need come that way?
I saw some perfectly good stools in someones trash yesterday but I didn't have the right vehicle to pick them up. As I drove past them I thought of an idea to turn them into mini shelves in the studio. When I came back by later in the day....they were gone. So at least someone got them and a little less went into the ever growing landfill.
I did find some good rusty washers in the parking lot.

I've been looking for ways to cut down on trash too. I started making journals out of my scrap paper. Even junk mail looks cute when it's cut into rough little rectangles and bound!

About 10 years ago, a few days past Halloween, we went though the dumpster at Sam's and retrieved around 250 large bags of candy. All was in perfect shape. We loaded up two cars and took it to the Women's shelter. When we were young, lots of kids went to the dump and got tons of great stuff. I have been recycling all my life. Have a good weekend.
