Earth-Friendly Crafts

It’s been a busy week here, what with my sewing room update and learning a new art, but I can’t share either of those things yet.  Trust me, once they are completely finished, you’ll be hearing ALL about both.  In the meantime, since it’s the day we celebrate our big, blue marble, so I’d like to talk about a few of my favorite Crafty Staci projects that are all about reduce/reuse/recycle.
