The first day of every month is a day to honor Project Genesis.( I know I'm a day late, I had computer issues). Suzan from OldGreyMare has a meme where we share eco-friendly tips on how to live a green lifestyle. Sometimes small change will make a huge impact, in our landfill and our lives.
I know this looks odd; Yes it is your standard Brillo, SOS pad. I make mine last longer. I use a Frog, it is a florist tool used to hold flowers in place. Flowers like water, as do frogs. After I use the pad, I leave it on the frog, the water from it drains off and this prevents it from rusting, so I can use it a few more times. I have read you can freeze them in ziplock bags. I haven't tried it. Just be sure to remember to drain off the soapy water.
Becky uses them in her crafting. She dyes them in coffee and makes books and all kinds of clever, creative items.
Now, I, too am dying used dryer sheets.
I also tend to save scraps of fabric to make gift tags for packages. You could use a variety of items, magazines, junk mail, fabric, different paper, paint, etc. It is fun to see what you can come up with, using what is available to you.
work, she makes beautiful, unique tags with various mediums. She always finds a way to delight or surprise you with her art~
