Wrapping It Up.



Can anyone stand one more Christmas picture? It's amazing how quickly the holiday disappears after taking so long to get here. I had mentioned in a past post about putting my energies into wrapping, and I must say I was MOST HAPPY with my results. I wrapped all the luggage tags this way (and other small items)...using the most christmassy, beautiful pages from my millions of catalogs as paper, tied with a simple butchers string. I thought they looked great and were a perfect way to recycle. After all, someone put a lot of thought into the layout and design of those pages, so why spend money when you have best designers working for you?



I'm pretty good at recycling and composting, but I think this new year, I'll try to be even better. If everyone would just do ONE THING of their choice every day, what a difference it would make. Top of my list is trying really hard to remember to carry my cloth bags into the market, and NOT remember they're in the car as I'm checking out.

That's such a good idea to use catalogs for wrapping paper. We reuse gift bags and old wrapping paper, so I guess we did our part too.

Such a clever gal! I have to now look and see what I have in the New Year catalogs for wrapping.

Your wrapping is wonderful. I was not sure what I was looking at it' And kept on thinking: she wrapped a leather recliner with string??

Ah, I don't use cloth bags, but I do recycle my paper bags. I never forget them.

I also compost my kitchen scraps instead of running them down the garbage disposal. And I've chosen to read the news online instead of having to recycle too many pages of newspaper every week.

This year? Continue to try and reduce my carbon footprint...
