Music to My Ears: Now THIS is Recycling

Occasionally, I find stories that touch me so much, I just want to share them. Take for example the “Landfill Harmonic” orchestra, made up of kids in Cateura, Paraguay, who play orchestral instruments (think violins, cellos and the like) made of trash recovered from the landfill that essentially serves as the foundation of their town.… Continue reading Music to My Ears: Now THIS is Recycling

You know that “arm party” trend that you’re seeing everywhere? Well, I’m completely here for that. Perfect excuse to wear all my bracelets at the same time.

When it comes to most things, I general advocate going paperless. Bills and bank statements are more timely and easier to track via email, and you can even get faxes without paper these days. On the other hand, nothing says “Thank You” or “I Love You” like a beautiful card printed on paper with a… Continue reading Pretty Paperie & Printed Delight from Night Owl Paper Goods
