Freebie Friday! Key West Drink Flag

It was nine years ago tomorrow that my husband and I were not only attendants, but the only attendees at our dear friends’ wedding in Key West. Their nuptials made a fantastic vacation so incredibly special. Today, I would like to give a salt-rimmed, tart but sweet, margarita toast to Ilina and her hubby. Happy Anniversary!

Visit Ilina’s blog for the perfect recipe for the signature drink of Key West and garnish with a lime and a little Conch Republic flag.

The flag can be downloaded below, and printed on Avery 5160 labels. Simply wrap around a toothpick and add a margarita with a lime. Double the number of flags by flipping the label sheet around and printing again!

Freebie Friday! Coloring Page for Kids

My thought behind this project is that kids will be able create their own alphabet for either a book or for wall art. I plan to add the rest of the alphabet throughout the year. Simply download the PDF file below and print!

Have fun with the letter "A"!

My Little Green Things

I attempt to do my best at living green, but it’s getting even tougher in this economy.

Three major ways I want and need to do to reduce my carbon footprint: My aging house needs new windows. Not in the budget. We also want a new energy-efficient furnace. Not this year, not in the foreseeable future. My husband needs to drive a new vehicle, not a 10-yr-old- needs-a-new-muffler-SUV. Again, not in the budget. These things irk me every day.

Sure, I’ve given up water bottles, use cloth bags instead of plastic, turn off running water and lights constantly, recycle religiously, reduce my driving, reuse everything I possibly can, and even repurpose old things into useful new items (see above). I also use only eco-friendly and recycled materials for my greeting cards.

Is this enough? I don’t think so, but right now I don’t have a choice. I hope that soon I will, for the sake of everyone’s and my own children.

In the meantime, I’ll just keep doing my own little green things.
