Earth Day Baby!

April 22nd is Earth Day.   
We're also going to make it Anti-Litter Day.


Here in the beautiful mountains of Northern Utah, you will find trash along the sides of the mountain roads and canyon trails.  Trash left behind by careless visitors or even by accident.  Have you ever left a soda bottle on top of your car while packing things up and drove off, forgetting it? 

We invite you to join us to make April 22nd Anti-Litter day also!  If everyone picks up one small bag of trash from their neighborhood, park, roadside, etc., think of how much litter we can remove!  We also encourage you to recycle what you can.  Just get involved.  You can "like" B Kind 2 Earth Day on Facebook to join the movement!

I also have a few ideas up my sleeve about how to turn trash (litterally... haha!!) into art.  But, more on that to come after April 22nd!

Hi Wendy~
completely agree! living on a tiny Caribbean island I found trash from the 70's, washed up daily on the shore>> old Tab cans were common.

I agree! I'm just getting started in geocaching, and one of their mantras is "CITO" (Cache in, trash out) and encourage everyone to pitch in and pick up the trash!

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event.  There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding. To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store. Essential Supplies: Waterproof Material (vinyl tablecloth, or other store-bought vinyl or

Love Heart Wood Project

Today I have a really easy project to create. It would be a great last-minute Christmas gift. Wood heart ! To begin, simply trace your heart onto a sheet of patterned paper. You could also use another shape or even a plain wood block. Cut the heart out of paper and set aside. Next, you will want to paint your wood heart in a neutral color or coordinating color to your patterned paper. Once the paint is dry, glue the paper to the wood using Mod Podge or craft glue spread very thin. If your glue is too thick, bubbles in the paper will occur. Let dry, pushing out any buckles that the paper gets. Cover the project with a thin layer of Mod Podge if desired. Now it's time for the fun part! Use your imagination to add ribbons, die cuts, brads, flowers, charms, any embellishment. I have even used the bling from an old broken necklace. The sky is the limit! Depending on the project I am creating, sometimes I decoupage (Mod Podge) the painted and papered wood and don't decoup
