I wish we had more days on the calendar for Earth day. We could at least have it once a season 🙂 I try to appreciate nature as much as possible and go outside to feel as one with it. It’s so hard with all the fun technology around but luckily Iv’e been craving the outdoors more and Spring is just the right time to get me wanting to leave the house!
There are so many different ways to celebrate Earth Day! We can clean the Earth where we see need, we can crochet plastic bags together to recycle them, we can think of how we plan on protecting the Earth more in the future, and think what Earth Day means to us 🙂
I’d like to share a FREE Tree applique with you that you can use as a brooch, earrings, applique or whatever you can think of as a fun way to celebrate today!
HAPPY EARTH DAY! 😀
