Love this project and wanted to let you know that we featured one of your products (which I LOVE) on our blog, Celebrate Green! today as a November favorite. http://www.celebrategreen.net/blog/favorite-things/11-11

We've tweeted and FBed and hope you'll choose to do the same.

Great job on this fun project.

Looks like this was originally posted in August. Seems like maybe the original person isn't ready to follow through right now, but if you are, I'd say take the ball and run with it, but could you keep us informed? I'd really like to be part of this. I'd had the idea myself, but don't have an etsy shop and don't really know how to go about it.

So sorry about this, but it did give me a chuckle as I remembered the very first T-shirt I made. It was in a class in what was then a very new thing, Stretch 'n Sew.

I was so proud of myself, never having sewn anything before, until I held the shirt up after I'd finished and realized I'd sewn one arm to the neckhole and finished off the armhole!

The whole class was in hysterics, me included.

I like this thread particularly since my daughter just launched www.GreenHalloween.org The idea is to create child and Earth friendly holiday traditions and of course crafting and recylcing are a big part of it.

We ran up against the whole issue of being as aware as possible of what we use and re-use and did find recycled paper to print post cards on (our only printed materials). One of our sponsors this year, Whole Foods, is going to do candy recycling at their stores in the Seattle area. And we are looking for other ideas that people can use. So if you have any, drop me a line.

Oh, I forgot I wanted to add here that I have a compost pile and although I recycle paper, I realized that I also could add it to the compost as a "brown" material. I purchased a very inexpensive cross shredder that makes tiny pieces. All my mail goes in there and any paper that has already been printed on both sides, then out into the compost pile. You also can add shredded paper to planters or holes you dig for new plants.

Earth to earth!

You have a wonderful eye and your work must draw a lot of attention.

Busy, busy!

Oh my gosh, this is gorgeous. Makes me want to get out the sewing machine which is ripe with dust bunnies! Was this a pattern that you purchase at the store? I'd love to try one.

I'd love to join you all, but need to share a ride from the Renton or Issaquah area. If anyone is coming from there, please let me know. Glad it was fun last night.

I would like to try doing the leaves using photos of his girls and grandkids, then surprise him with it at Christmas with his very own Family Tree of Life!
Just trying to come up with ideals on how to protect the photos. Any suggestions from anyone would be appreciated.

If I were going to try it with photos, I'd do photocopies or print outs on the thinnest paper possible. This is because the photos don't bend and it is VERY hard to make them stick around the little branches. My original idea was to use photos, but they ended up being a pain in the neck because of the lack of flexibility. But if they were on paper that would work fine.

If you do decide to use actual photos, the only thing I can think of is to use one of the spray protecterants that might keep the light from affecting the photos. Maybe someone else will have a better idea.

Good luck!

Way to reduce, reuse recycle!  I'm tempted to try it with various colors and textures of starched silks, but I bet that would take 4 winters!

Oh my gosh, that would be so beautiful. And you could wrap the trunk in brown silk, mmm.

Inspiring. What a great idea. They would be perfect for a kid's room if he or she had an interest in a particular book or author.

Thanks for the idea.
