I’m going to take a moment and do some shameless self-promoting! I know you all know that I’ve recently opened an eco-friendly jewelry shop on Etsy.com – that much I know I’ve talked about plenty!

But right now I’ve got a few things that I’d like to tell you about that are in progress.

First, I’m offering free shipping on all US orders of $30.00 or more when you order from my shop, Seeking Serendipity! This offer has no end date, as of now, but it won’t last forever :)

And second I’m excited to tell you that you can enter to win one of my upcycled jewelry sets in a blog giveaway right now!

Go to Pink Dandy Chatter for the details on how to enter! I adore the set I created for this.

I’m also part of the Lymenaide Holiday Bazaar. Stop by and check out all the fantastic artists, crafters, and creators in the Lyme community!

Keep an eye out this season – I’m sure I’ll be back with more updates and promotions :)

I had to share this awesome video I found today on One Million Acts of Green.  I signed up to track my efforts to reduce my carbon footprint. Check it out, it’s easy to do your part!

Birthday Balloons! Yep, I’m officially 17 now. It snuck up on me, I’ll admit it. I’d forgotten that it was even so soon until last week. (Lyme-brain!) But sure enough, May 4th has come and gone.

 

I had a wonderful time, however! As my aunt said on the phone tonight, somebody up there gave me the best present. I felt good, almost normal all day until I began to fade around 8 pm before dinner. I woke up later than usual, and plenty sore from all that walking at the Living Green Expo. But, I took the day slowly enjoying every minute of energy and mental clarity. What a joy! I’m so thankful I was able to truly enjoy the day. It was very low-key, but that’s just what I’ve needed lately.

 

My brothers weren’t able to make it home for the celebration tonight, but Tara did! Before dinner my dad made calamari and mussels bought fresh today. And for dinner we had, as I requested, fresh grilled salmon, asparagus, and my favorite wheat-free noodles. My mom made me a beautiful chocolate gluten-free cake with drizzled chocolate and strawberries for desert. Matt's Flowers

 

Matt and Becky had flowers sent to me over the weekend since they’re in Peru now. They’re absolutely beautiful! I love getting flowers in the mail! Chris and Tara have promised to take me golfing this summer, which I’m so excited about! I got clubs a long time ago but was never feeling well enough to use them. I’m hoping this summer we’ll find some time when I’m not too dizzy. My parents were generous to give me a new cookbook full of baking recipes, as well as “The Cake Decorating Bible”. Guess I’ll have to practice soon :) They also gave me a book documenting Peace throughout history. It has some amazing pictures and quotes that I’ve seen just from paging through it. I can’t wait to have the time to read it. However, I think I’m the most excited about my new eco-friendly SIGG water bottle! I’ve been coveting all of them I see out and about, and love the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” design on it. Oh how well my parents know me!

 

Presents Cards arrived from family in WI and CA, and well wishes were sent to me on Facebook and my Lyme support groups. Thank you So Much everyone, you truly made my day!

 

As a friend said, “Here’s to a year of healing and wellness!”

 

Peace and healing, molly

It’s over now, but I love this movement!

To quote their website:

“For the first time in history, people of all ages, nationalities, race and background have the opportunity to use their light switch as their vote – Switching off your lights is a vote for Earth, or leaving them on is a vote for global warming. WWF are urging the world to VOTE EARTH and reach the target of 1 billion votes, which will be presented to world leaders at the Global Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen 2009.

This meeting will determine official government policies to take action against global warming, which will replace the Kyoto Protocol. It is the chance for the people of the world to make their voice heard.”

 

Today people all over the world turned off their lights at 8:30 PM, local time, to support environmental awareness of global warming. And, I (being as forgetful as I am with Lyme-brain) didn’t remember until it was half over! But, for that last half hour my house was dark. I’m telling ya!

 

Here’s the photo I created on their website:

 

It shows where I am in relation to all those others who were registered participants in Earth Day 2009. Remember all you can see there is North America, the rest of the globe was pretty yellow too!

I’ll leave you all with that picture and those beautiful thoughts for now. Let’s hope tonight had an even more powerful impact! I’m beat after a very busy day. I’ll update tomorrow!

 

Peace & awareness to all, molly

Here are the photos I promised! This is about all I have to show for last Friday. With no internet, I was forced to entertain myself all afternoon. Hope you like them =)

 

Treehouse by Tham & Videgard Hansson is Almost Invisible : TreeHugger

 

Can I just say, I want to go here. How absolutely beautiful is this?! A treehouse built to minimize the impact upon it’s surroundings, now that’s living green right there. Am I right? I’ve always loved treehouses. Something about them just draws you to them.

Hello all! Well, as I promised (somewhat) last night I’ve got some photos of my most recent fused plastic bag projects. I made these for the final project in my Historical Fashion/Costume Design course. Enjoy!
