DIY Beauty: Homemade Lip Balm with Herban Crafts

May 26th, 2012 | by Becky Striepe

Former CAGW writer Karen Lee and green beauty pro Mary Kearns have teamed up on a brand new endeavor: Herban Crafts. The duo is creating eco-friendly craft kits for folks who want to make their own beauty supplies but don't know where to get started. Herban Crafts was kind enough to send me a kit to try out, so earlier this week I tried my hand at making my own lip balm

Buy Handmade: Jewelry Ideas for Mother’s Day!

April 26th, 2012 | by Bonnie Getchell

Mother's day is only a few weeks away on May 13-- are you ready for it? To give you plenty of time to plan, I wanted to introduce you to five incredible Etsy shops that you can buy jewelry from for Mother's Day. Not only are they unique and creative shops, but they use recycled materials when making their products! Oh, and did I mention that all of the items I'm sharing today are under $40?

As always, I couldn't resist scouring this year's Indie Craft Experience for new green crafters on the scene, and the folks at Reuse First really stood out to me. Jeremiah and Michelle's mix of sweet and cheeky paper goods totally caught my eye, and they were kind enough to answer some questions about what they do and why they do it! Their insights into waste, reuse, and consumerism are really refreshing

Buy Handmade: Journals from Recycled Materials

November 24th, 2011 | by Bonnie Getchell

At the most random moments you can find me writing in a journal. I carry one with me wherever I go (most of the time it stays tucked in my purse). Why? Well, I never know when I'm going to be inspired. As a writer, and as a crafter, ideas pop in my head constantly. There are too many times where I've thought, "Oh, I need to remember that idea!" but then I quickly forget it. The solution-- an awesome journal!
