I turned on the TV this morning to the weather channel since I wanted to know what the temp is. They were doing the world so I flipped over to network TV and ended up on the Today show. They were doing a segment on things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint. Something for every day of the week. Well I already do some of these but there is always more that you can do. Here is the list.
Day 1: Turn down the heat (just 2 degrees)
Day 2: Unplug gadgets (unplug toasters,coffeemakers etc when not using them.
Day 3: Wash clothes efficiently ( in cold or warm water)
Day 4: Eat less meat (go meatless once a week)
Day 5: Put the brakes on driving (once a week)
Day 6: Go green in the home( replace incandescent bulbs with fluorescent ones)
Day 7: Write a letter (to those who are doing great, or one to encourage other to do so)
There is a lot of detail on these choices here
Art Journal Pages
This first one is in my small Van Gogh moleskine. A Van Gogh moleskine is just the small sketchbook but the covers are silk fabric. You don't find them everywhere.
This one is all about Joy a result of working with the Abraham-Hicks Well Being Cards. I love the look of joy on her face. I will be adding additional word later.
This is page I did on fear at the start of Nanowrimo. I am showing this because if you look at the background you see a riot of color. I took the piece of freezer paper that I use to work on and made a copy of it and used it as background paper. It was covered with paint and stamping ink and whatever else I spilled on the paper that day. Sometime the protective paper you are working on looks better than what you made. I used to just throw it out. I learned this from Elise at the Artnest retreat. I think its a great idea.
