Happy Earth Day!
Here's a fun little recycle/upcycle - reuse
project I've been wanting to share.
I am an admitted list-maker, yep, it's right there
on my "About Me" page! Lists are a constant in
My mind naturally works in lists.
When I have a project to do, I see the steps in
list form before my pen even hits paper.
So where does a prolific list-maker keep her lists?
But I'm a crafter too, so they need to be
I make one for each season. (:

Recycling or is it Upcycling?
I use the kids old composition books; they
never use all the pages. Would that be
recycling or upcycling?

The used pages are carefully cut out and
the cover is joyfully altered.
Most notebooks have more than half of
their pages unused, in that case I just
alter the cover.
However, my current edition was pretty
much thinned out so I made a quick
bookcover from kraft wrapping paper.
This will allow me to transfer my spring
cover to another book when this one
is finished before the end of the season.

Ironically, some of Bella Blvd's winter papers
were perfect for my spring notebook!
Bella Blvd Winter Wonder design papers were
used, earlier in the year, for both my winter notebook
and my 2016 daily planner, I really liked the color scheme.
