Earthday this year really got me thinking about what I am doing to help take care of this planet. Sure I do the small things like not littering and recycling/reusing things as I can. I also try to reduce waste and reduce packaging on things I buy by buying full packages of things instead of those pre-packaged stuff that seems to be so popular lately. Afterall they raise the prices signifigantly and those pre-packaged stuff adds signifigantly to the amount of waste. I have changed every lightbulb in my house from those cheapy incandesent ones which actually has saved me TONS!! I have had some of the new CFL bulbs (or whatever they are called) for over two years now. The older type bulbs I had to replace every few weeks. Now I know those new bulbs have mercury in them but the amount of waste the older type bulbs puts out coupled with the pollution it takes to run the factory that produces them I think it is helping more then hurting. Basically I do a whole lot little things that I hope rub off on those around me and in turn keeps going down the line to more and more people which will add up to ONE HUGE thing for our planet. earth-day-20091

We are all suffering economically right now I think and we have all given up alot to make ends meet until things start to change around us and we feel a little more secure financially. One of the things I have mostly given up was buying scrapbook supplies. I do have a huge hoard of supplies on my hard drive but when I see some new stuff coming in the store every week sometimes I just have to buy a little something for myself. My last purchases I was lucky and managed to get a coupon for the purchase as well as win a gift card to my favorite designers store so I got several new kits to play with. So even with the economy being so horrible I have still managed to buy a little here and there without feeling to guilty about spending on something I dont REALLY need

You Are an Easter Egg

You’re so sweet, you don’t need candy. You much prefer the taste of artificial coloring instead.
