Green in More Ways Than One

Cosaverde.com is this awesome site that showcases eco-friendly handmade items for sale. You could be selling your handmade stuff on Etsy, 1000Markets, Artfire, Dawanda, and many other places, and still get it showcased on Cosa Verde, making it a great one-stop resource for eco-friendly items. Albeit, the site is still in its infancy, it's coming along quite nicely. I've searched for green items on Cosa Verde to give you a taste of what you can find on this site...

Tote made entirely of recycled materials...

Groundhog's Got Me Thinking Warm...

Groundhog Day is kinda special for me. It's the day, 7 years ago, that my (new) h-band and I started dating. So I can't help but pay attention to the day and that cute little rodent's prediction. Today, it turns out, Phil predicted 6 more weeks of winter. I'm cool with that. The combination of falling in love in the winter and knowing how to bundle properly to withstand the cold makes me quite the fan of this season.

Still, I have warmer weather on the brain, mainly b/c I'll be trekking to Florida later this week to visit my family. With that said, I gotta give props to eco crafty items that are reminiscent of warmth, tropics, etc. This in no way makes me a hater of winter. On the contrary, it's still the best in my book. That said, here are my warming finds for today...
