Reviews,Rants, & other Rambles!

The Reviews:
Well I've been using the Eco-friendly dishwasher liquid & it works great! Not only is is saving the earths water supply, it's also saving my pocketbook. It was as economical as most of the leading brands, & cheaper than some of the others. Also it left less water spots on my glassware...what a bonus!
While we are talking about the environment, here is a site that you can look up how much each appliance you have will save you. Go check it out!!!
Also, after a long day of shopping, & not wanting to make the last stop at the video rental store, I purchased a DVD at Wal-mart called "5 people you meet in heaven", starring Jon Voight. It started out kinda slow, but it turned out to be a great movie. I had never heard of it before, & didn't look to see when It came out, but it must have been a sleeper. I mentioned it to 1 of my friends, & they were actually reading the book! Wish I had time to read, but for now I'll just watch movies.
The Rambles:
I asked a few of my buddies from Multiply about the border fabric for my sassy ladies blocks & they suggested that I use white with black polka-dots. I think that would look great, & funky too! Are there any other suggestions out there? Please leave me a comment.

Eco friendly products

Well today I bought a new dishwashing detergent called "eco + " made by Palmolive. The label says that it has 0 % sodium tripolyphosphates. That translates into that it's better for our lakes & streams. Does it work, well I don't know yet, but you can be sure that I'll give you the verdict when I get the dishwasher loaded. Oh, the dishwasher has an energy star rating too, so maybe I'll be getting bonus points from mother earth.
Now I usually blog about my sewing/crafting, but I would like to mention a new website that is earth friendly, & hope that you might visit it sometime. It's called "Crafing a green world."

Happy New Year 2009-Help me save the planet!

...and back to blogging and sewing! I bought myself a new PC for X-mas, & I'm back online...YIPEE!
Now to start some new projects & finish up some old ones.

Also, I'm gonna start the new year out right by finding new things to re-cycle. I know all of us generate so much trash on a daily basis, & we have become such a disposable society. We don't use & re-use anything, we just buy, use, & throw away. almost all of my light bulbs have been changed to spiral fluorescent bulbs to save energy. I unplug all of my small appliances & chargers when they are not in use. If I use disposable plates...which isn't often...I buy paper, not plastic. I crush my own cans, put magazines,newspapers,soda bottles, & phone books in the re-cycle bin for the city. Tin cans,cardboard boxes, &Styrofoam packing are now finding their way into the bin as well. I wonder how many of you recycle your trash? What do you re-cycle? What else can we do to help save the planet for our children's children??? Leave me your feedback in the comment section please.
