As a contributor to the Eco Etsy blog – I’ve had the opportunity to write on a wide range of topics. From eco-tutorials to sustainable inspirations – I’ve covered a range of topics on the site. Most recently I gathered up some ideas on how you can bring a hint of Spring indoors with creative curating using plants.
If you’re getting antsy like me to welcome the new season, check out the article for some suggestions on how you can bring the great outdoors in this month.
The Eco Etsy Street Team is holding our first-ever 14 days of crafting! We’re rounding up the best of the best green tutorials and sharing them with experienced upcyclers and newbie DIYers alike.
Several posts that I’ve written for the team blog from over the years, like the one above, will be featured, along with many other fun ways in which you can get your “craft on” sustainably.
Tune in each day of the challenge to be inspired and take your creativity to a whole new level!
Pumpkins pumpkins pumpkins everywhere! Whether they’re green heirlooms or the traditional bright orange globes we’re most familiar with, this glorious gourd is the icon of the season.
But how can you take your squash-loving obsession to the next level? So glad you asked!
Whether for decor or dinner – there’s endless ways to make the most of this lovely gourd. I recently wrote up an article for Eco Etsy touting its many creative uses. And I’d love to gather more!
If you have a fun and unique way to use pumpkins – share them below!
This year the auction is separated into various categories with corresponding bid dates with all of the proceeds benefiting the National Park Foundation. Everything from baby items to household goodies can be found in the generous donations made by my fellow Eco Etsy team members.
So if you’re itching to update your wardrobe for Spring, or are looking to stock up on natural pampering products, check out the event which runs until Earth Day.
We are doing away with the previous “Eco-Tutorial” series in lieu of daily topics by subject. Imagine what I was given? Inspiration. Perfect! I was so thrilled about the idea that I spent an hour Saturday collecting thoughts, images, and articles that could encourage, enlighten, or excite. My first post will be debuting tomorrow morning.
Since ardently collecting potential inspirations, I’ve decided to also ‘beef up’ my inspiration series here! So expect to see more outfits, art, and imagery from around the web popping up on the Pierogi Picnic site as well!
And while we’re on the topic – is there something that has inspired you recently? Do you have a favorite blog or website that you turn to regularly to lift your spirit? If you do – please share it in the comments below!
One of my recent favorite DIY projects is making ultra modern wreaths using the pages of tattered books. These easy to make decor items add some cheer to your pad but are super easy to make! You can experiment with different colors and textures of book paper as well as shapes and designs for the wreath pattern. To see how I made my set of three take a peek at the Eco Etsy tutorial I created here.
Once you’ve tried your hand at them snap a pic and send me the link! I’d love to see how yours turn out.
I have the great honor and privilege to be part of Etsy’s most dynamic and earth-centric street team: Eco Etsy. This group provides sellers with a community where we exchange thoughts, troubleshoot, inspire and collaborate. Shoppers can also benefit – when on Etsy simply type “ecoetsy” into the search field with your other criteria – the result is a page of sustainable shops helping your hunt.
Each year the Eco Etsy team members join forces to curate an Earth Day auction where you can place a bid for a fantastic basket of goodies from our team’s artisans. I’ve also donated one of my favorite designs: the “On an Apple Tree” upcycled dress.
The auctions commenced last week and run until Sunday, April 24th. This year all of the proceeds are going to Habitat for Humanity for Japan. Visit this link to see what goodies are available in each set – and place your bid today!
