Go green this Christmas

Nowadays everywhere we look there are petitions, initiatives and protests about the state of the world's environment. And while I'm supportive of making big changes, I'm also a firm believer that every little thing counts. And the Holidays are just the perfect time of the year to start!


Go green this Christmas - tips and tricks for eco-friendly gifts and gift packaging

How many gifts have you bought just because you needed  to give someone something, not thinking whether the recipient would actually use it or not? How many trees have been slayed to produce the tons of wrapping paper that land in the trash can just minutes after gifts are opened?

So this year I have decided to go as green as possible for Christmas. How? Here are my tips for an environmentally friendly Christmas:

Welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #197!

Hello, I hope you've enjoyed a lovely weekend, and welcome to The Really Crafty Link Party #197!

And as this is a party, try to visit at least a couple of other links and spread the word on social media - the more, the merrier.

The really crafty link party, keeping it real, craft blog


As usual, the linkup will be open until next Thursday and I will be posting the features on December 13th.

Did you miss last week's features? Click the image below to discover them!


https://keepingitrreal.blogspot.com/2019/12/the-really-crafty-link-party-196-featured-posts.html



The Really Crafty Link Party is focused on crafts, so the idea is for you to link up all your crafty posts: DIYs, printables, home decor, tutorials, recipes, whatever you want to share. Feel free to add as many links as you want, and old posts are welcome too!

I have no problem if you want to add the same link in more than one week; it will still be eligible for a feature but please note that I will comment and add it to the Pinterest board only once. You can add posts on other subjects (family friendly please), but only craft related posts will have a chance to be featured and will be pinned to the party's Pinterest board.

If you host your own party, add it too - it may not be featured, but you'll be sharing it with all of us anyway, and everyone loves to discover new parties!

Do you have an Etsy shop? You can add your items to the party too, they may not be eligible for a feature but you'll be getting additional exposure anyway.




Instructions: Select all code above, copy it and paste it inside your blog post as HTML

If you follow me via any social media (icons in the side bar) let me know in the comments and I'll make sure to follow you back!

By linking up you give me permission to use your photos in features or round-ups, and to share your posts on social media (always with a link back to you for proper credit).

A bunch of (reusable) Christmas gift bags

This year I'm trying to go as green as possible for Christmas. I've been making Christmas gift bags on and off over the years, but in 2019 I want to make them for just about anyone I'm giving presents to. I refuse to buy one more roll of gift wrap paper, as it's a complete waste of resources.


A bunch of (reusable) Christmas gift bags


So when my husband decided to get some gifts for his co-workers, I told him I would not buy wrapping paper or gift packages, but I would go through my stash and find a suitable fabric to sew some gift bags.

Copy-Cat Scented Soap: A DIY Project

If you've been visiting a while you already know I'm a huge fan of DYI. If you can make it, why buy it? But I also have a busy life, so there are several things I've wanted to learn how to make for a while but somehow never found the time. One of them is quilting. And another is soap making.

So, when I was offered the chance to share here recipes for soap making that, besides being very easy, allow you to use all your favorite fragrances - I didn't even hesitate.

Llama felt notebook cover

Just when I say I'm not making another notebook cover for a while, my daughter comes up with another of her friends who's celebrating a birthday and still does not have one of my book covers.

So just a few weeks after the nordic bird notebook cover, I was charged with a new "order".
