In addition to my dry erase price signs, I need to price each item individually with my booth code. Many antique/art stores do this in order to keep track of which booth earned money. Instead of using new price tags from the store, why not make your own from recycled paper? They're so much cuter and way more eco-friendly!

While visiting family this week, I noticed my mom received a stack of Christmas cards from family and friends. She had a genius idea that I just had to share! Several of the cards had beautiful graphics that weren't too "Christmasy" and were worth saving, so she decided to frame them!

This week I searched Pinterest to find a cute way to give small gifts this Christmas. I saw several projects of the traditional laced mittens and laced stockings, and thought it would be great for small items! I simply added an eco-friendly twist by using book pages. If you want to impress your co-workers with a cute gift, or dress up that gift card for a friend, this is the perfect project for you!

If you follow us on Pinterest, you probably saw this idea from Alisa Burke that Becky pinned to our board. I've also seen these beautiful pieces of art from Creative Genius Art, too. I fell in love with the idea, so I decided to make my own version for Christmas gifts!

Last weekend I was looking for Thanksgiving table decorations on Pinterest. I came across these fabulous utensil holders from The Idea Room. I decided to use their idea, but put an eco-friendly spin on it by using a recycled cardboard box instead of cardstock

There are plenty of luminary jar tutorials out there, but many of them use new materials rather than recycling what you already have on hand. You can make your own pumpkin luminary jars for Halloween using recycled jars and book pages! They are so simple, yet insanely adorable!

A few days ago I came across these precious pumpkin rings from Wild Olive. The concept inspired me-- the ring she created reminded me of a napkin ring holder! If you're hosting a Halloween dinner party, or even Thanksgiving dinner, give your event a special touch with your own pumpkin napkin ring holders!

Can you believe that next Monday is October 1st? In preparation, I was browsing Pinterest for unique pumpkin ideas. I came across this awesome tutorial from Two Paper Divas and knew I had to try it! Instead of using scrapbook paper, though, I decided to make this project even more eco-friendly by using book pages!

Remember my first Music Wall Art idea? Well, here's part 2! My roommates and I had a large blank space over our couch that was driving me insane! I didn't want to buy any artwork from a big box store, so I decided to create my own. I've seen several projects on Pinterest that have lyrical artwork and they inspired me to make my own "It is Well" wall art. You can adapt this with your own favorite quote or lyric too! Here's how to do it!
