How about personalizing those gifts?

The gifting season continues, be it weddings, engagement ceremonies, birthdays or even house-warming, there is always a reason to celebrate. It’s during one such occasion, when I had to gift a bouquet of flowers to someone and felt the desperate need of a gift tag that would go with my flowers. I didn’t want any of those plastic looking mill made paper tags with a flowery print, but I wanted something more ethnic and being an amateur environmentalist of some sort, definitely something eco-friendly. Coincidentally, one of our buyers’ was looking for something similar too. Finally, we got around to making these. The picture is sneak peek of one color of the handmade paper tags what we eventually narrowed down to. Quite happy with the result :).

Look what we upcycled. Do you like it?

A new look to the used cold coffee bottles, and a new job for it.

We like to re-create and we like to re-design. What most people would throw away, we give it another life (well, we do try). Instead of those empty glass bottles reaching the garbage landfill straight away, once we’re done with our delicious cold coffee, we extend their life further by giving it another job to do. Of course mother Earth’s job reduces just a little bit in the process, which we feel good about. Weekend art activity you may call it, or probably our contribution which we do very joyfully indeed! 🙂
