Recycling Craft Site

I saw this website and I thought it may be of interest to some of you.  It is CraftBits, and this will take you to their Recycled Crafts page .  There are many ideas.  At least in my opinion, some concepts were better than others.  And since my blog deals in paper beads for the most part, I’ll point out one specific project:  paper bead bobby pin.

Have fun,

Summer: Local Produce Sites

Fresh vegetables are ripe for the pickin’.  I started thinking about how it is advantageous for both local farmers and consumers to buy food locally if at all possible.  After doing a bit of research I discovered several web sites that may help you find a local farmer / vendor.  This is just a sampling of sites.  I’m sure there are many more.

Local Harvest
Food Routes
Farmer’s Market Search
Rhode Island Local Food Guide
Eat Well Guide (find sustainable, organic food sources)
Pennsylvania (find local food sources)
Pick Your Own information
Texas local farmer’s market information
Ontario Canada local food information
Canadian Organic Growers
United Kingdom

Obviously I do not have personal experience with each site, but you may find a food source you never knew existed.
