Since it's Earth Day, I thought I'd post some items I have in my Recycled Items.
I have a couple movie poster recycled journals. I want to make more like these in the future:
Hope Floats Movie Upcycled Journal
Center Stage Movie Upcycled Journal
I have some items made out of recycled books. The "I Am a Little Duck" is the first item I sold on Etsy:
I Am a Little Animal Upcycled Journal
Upcycled Swan Flyaway Journal
These are some items I made with vintage items, from magazines:
Best Wishes Red Birthday Greeting Card
Vintage Girl Coptic Bound Book
These items are altered journals. I started with an old journal that was already bound and redid the covers:
Asian Print Mini Upcycled Journal
Altered Octopus Spiral Journal
What are you doing to celebrate Earth Day?

I also got asked to donate some items for this event on May 2nd at Salud Latina. The organization hopes to improve the capacity of health departments, community-based and academic institutions to design and provide high quality culturally-competent HIV and chronic disease prevention and care models to residents of the State of Illinois. I decided to donate this calendar (I still have one more calendar in my shop). I don't think it will sell on my Etsy and I want someone to be able to use it:
I'm also sending some business cards so hopefully it will get the word out about my shop a little. Don't forget, you can still buy vegan sample bags with my mini cards here.

Music Notes Wavy Card
I meant to get this one up by Valentine's Day:
I Love You Black and Pink Hearts Fabric Card
I've also been listing more products on my Storenvy. I don't know if anything will sell, but it's a fun site to try out. There's an event for Earth Day and I might be selling some of my items for a few hours. It's kind of like a craft show, but less official.
I have some envelopes I made out of decorative paper that I want to list. They're all different sizes and some don't fit the standard envelope sizes. I'm still perfecting them, but I thought I might list a few. Would you buy envelopes from my shop? I'll have more journals listed soon.

You can see my Zebra card in the above photo. I made a bunch of A2 sized cards which I think are the smallest greeting cards available. Each has a different decorative paper on the outside and comes blank on the inside. I also have my business card inside each one. Here's a photo of some of them:
I'll go in to more detail about each card in another entry. I made two of this music note one so I put one on sale in my shop. It's perfect for music lovers or musicians:
Let me know if you decide to purchase. I hope it helps spread the word about my shop a little. I'd also like to know if you like mini (A2) size cards. They're good for sending a quick note or putting them in gifts (if you don't want a full size card). I'm thinking of putting more in my shop.

Orange and Yellow Flower Card
Green Grass Thank You Greeting Card
I also listed this love related card:
Sweetheart Gold Glitter Greeting Card
I feel like I haven't had time to go on Etsy lately because I've been so busy. I'm trying to post on my Tumblr every day and list something almost every day.
I'm doing a 365 Project on Flickr. My camera broke the other day and I almost had to end the project. I have a 35mm film camera though and I'm using black and white film with it for my 365 project until my digital camera is fixed. I haven't used my film camera in a while so it's kind of fun to use. I hope the photos turn out.

Do you decorate Easter eggs? What kind of things do you do for Easter?

Autism Awareness Journal
Mini Autism Awareness Journal
I also got this new greeting card. It uses joker decorative paper I got in Italy and has a unique shape. I listed it on April Fool's Day because I think it kind of fits the holiday. Did anybody do/experience any good April Fool's pranks?
Joker Greeting Card
Hope everyone has a good weekend!
