reduce, reuse, repurpose—and a giveaway!

It’s 2012, and if you haven’t heard of green crafting before, well, you’re about to.

Even if the environment might not be at the front of your thoughts, the state of the economy has most likely caused you to rethink your crafting schemes. You might look around and wonder What can I recycle? What can I use over again?

Lucky for you, being economical can also equate with being Earth-friendly. When you craft green, you recycle, reuse, and repurpose. Green crafting is creating something beautiful, while leaving behind the smallest footprint.

Our friends at Diamond Tech are really into crafting green, and they have some great products that can help make Earth-friendly and fun be best friends. In preparation of Earth Day next month, Diamond Tech is generously sponsoring a giveaway of one of their Bottle Art Kits each Friday leading up to Earth Day weekend. That’s right—you have FOUR chances to win!

So let’s get into it, shall we? Today you have a chance to win:

“What is it?” 56 – the answer

We can fool some of you some of the time, but we can’t fool all of you all of the time!

We had plenty of guesses for kitchen choppers, hand blenders and the likes, but we kinda knew that the bright colors of this top would give our puzzle away. That’s OK, we know we had a good puzzle posting when we saw amount of responses that we did this week! To read those, click here and scroll down the original post.

This vintage charmer was picked up at a sale a couple of summers ago. Don’t you just love yard sales? Happy Friday, friends!
