This weekend is the Living Green Expo at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds. If you're unable to make it, or even if you are planning to attend, you can get a jump on some green ideas by clicking over to my daughter Jess's blog for information on a biodegradable paint tray made from recycled pulp fiber, read her critique of the product, and find out where you can purchase it.
While you're at it, check out her vintage sewing themed packaging idea and a gift packaging kit using "sewing pattern tissue that is a green alternative to store-bought tissue" in addition to other creative gift packaging ideas for Christmas, a baker/cook, and a child's birthday. She has generously provided detailed instructions for how to create your very own gift packaging kit... so very cute and unique! Now all you need is something to wrap up for a gift. Jess has that covered, too. On her other blog, The Gift Enchiridion, she has categorized gift ideas with descriptions and links to web sites where the items can be purchased. Now you just need to think of a special person in your life to surprise with a little gift. No need to wait for a special occasion. The just-for-no-reason-at-all gifts are the best kind of all.
