I have never been one to crochet a dishcloth, but I have recently found myself doing many things I thought I was above doing. The more this is happening, the more I am realizing that my business and I are evolving.
One of my tests is bringing to my business what I stand for personally:
I don't buy windex, I use vinegar to wash my windows. I don't buy tide or sunlight for the laundry, I use Buffalo Recycled Soap ( Local company that recycles bar soap from hotel rooms and make it into laundry soaps.) I grow sprouts and lettuce on my window sill most of the year. I start my tomatoes indoors from seed in February. I compost. My kids wear hand-me-downs. I make my daughter guacho capris out of recycled t shirts and tank tops, she loves them. I love thrift store shopping. I eat purple potatoes I grew in my garden (they taste the same and are so pretty). I eat seasonally, I buy my food grown as close to home as possible. I make my own freezer jam with local honey, and my own berries. I cook from scratch, everyday. My husband makes his own sausage, smoked salmon, and pepperoni. I live in the countryside. I recycle anything and everything I can. I don't change my home decor for the sake of doing it. I love making my prized possessions last.........
So is born my eco friendly home line, I will be eventually offering a pattern collection for those DIYer's. It all takes time and I want to do really thorough job of it.
