Trying to be Green can be so tough !
Just finding the materials to make my handmade items - that are both organic AND as local as possible to avoid using so much transportation and fossil fuels... is impossible for some things.
I use my homegrown (in my organic gardens) herbs and flowers and buy organic fabrics whenever possible for my items.
Finding local organic fabric is tough, so I use quite a bit of vintage fabrics to make my hand-sewn items - at least it is keeping it out of a landfill and I am not buying any new non-organic fabrics.
I also use vintage buttons, trims, lace...
To me, using vintage fabrics and notions is not only being Green, but it also gives handmade items an extra special something too.
Handmade AND Vintage = Beautiful, Useful, and Green too !

Diana's Hand-Sewn and All Natural Products are getting even more popular and are getting more notice locally too !
Diana's Hand-Sewn and All Natural Products are getting even more local recognition.
Another local Hubbard, Ohio store has asked me to bring in a display of my All Natural handmade products and some of my hand sewn items to sell them in her downtown store right in the center of town.
This lady has a store in town with furniture and other things - she also does interior design...
She found my website and emailed me last week about putting some of my things in her store !
I emailed her back and will go to meet with her next week or so to talk about it.
I hope she knows that it is JUST me and not a whole crew that makes my things and that my hand-sewn items take time and are one-of-a-kind.
I am putting together a nice display of a little bit of everything so she can see them up close and then we will talk percentages and we will go from there.
This is so exciting !
The only problem is that I have been so...
