Mother Nature is My Home Girl

Happy Earth Day, y’all!   (And thanks, Google… you always come through with your clever home screens right when I think I might forget medium important holidays and random botanists’ birthdays.)

But seriously, I love the planet, I love DIY, and it’s no secret that I love saving the murnies, so logically I love upcycling like nobody’s business.

Bring on the Earth-Day-themed-upcycling-posts-throwback-round-up-trip-down-memory-lane-smorgasbord-of-April-twenty-second’s love!

Ok!

It’s Earth Day! (almost)

Holy upcycling linkfest, Batman! It’s almost Earth Day!

It’s actually this Sunday, but since I don’t do the blog thing on weekends, today I thought I would do a little compilation of some of my more earth-friendly posts in lieu of the usual “Things that (P)inspire Me” post.  But brace your green, tree hugging self — it’s a list of 15 links featuring ways to upcycle everything from vinyl records to used egg cartons.  Not for the faint of heart crafting.

Hope these inspire you in the event that you’re feeling upcycle-crafty at any point between now and Sunday.  Or… ever.

Yay Earth!
