art, birthday and less plastic~

a little art, a big birthday,  and a little info. on trying to be more aware and contientious
of my use of plastic :)


i am still working on assignments from misty's class....
although it's officially over, i can still go back and work on the ones
i missed...








my baby just 
turned 14.


how did it happen so fast?!
we had such a good day and night...celebrating with family and friends.




PLASTIC FREE WITH BETH TERRY AND FRIENDS....

last night i attended a presentation at UNCW on living plastic free.
so, what i learned was astonishing!....i knew that plastic was a problem.
and i thought that i was a pretty good steward ....i don't use plastic bags, 
or saran wrap... i recycle.  yadda yadda...
i was humbled.  
there is SO much to the plastic problem that i didn't know.
and there are so many things that i can do to change my ways.
this book "PLASTIC FREE" is filled with information and ways to reduce your
plastic use.  AND the author tells her story about her journey to being so close to 
plastic free that it's unbelievable.  she is a great speaker and shared her story as well as
great ideas and ways to reduce plastic use.  last night when i got home, i couldn't put the
book down.  and my mind was reeling with all the ways i could make a difference and all
the things i can do to reduce my own plastic use.
*please take the time to learn more and do something...
even if it's one thing to reduce your plastic use.  big things can happen when we all
make a change.  it doesn't have to be extreme and it doesn't have to be all at once, but little changes DO make a difference :)
more and more we are seeing the impact that plastic has on our wildlife and marine life.
heartbreaking and frustrating, these articles impacted me just enough to start doing things a little different.  one step at a time .

  1. What a beautiful "baby" - I know you relish all those mothering moments with her. You are so true, a blink of an eye, I am completely understanding this now. I am so very interested in your plastic free journey, am going to check out the links you shared. You know I share the same love for the sea...she is the ultimate vessel of life.
