Keeping Things Resourceful

 

…not a sponsored post…but yes, I recycled the bag…

 

2 Grocery Bags’ Greenery…the excess goes toward the kitty litter bin…

 

Hydration…an eraser-free sketch just as I incidentally met M. and H. yesterday with their son and daughter…chatting about Creative Action, Austin Free Forest School and such…

Thank you to my dear friend of decades, L.E., as well as new friends…and to my new clients, thank you…I. appreciate. you…

xo,

Paper Bag Lion Puppet and Toxin-free Paints…

Lion. Created a while ago…the mane was created with paper found in the used paper bin. When I presented this to them…the young’uns could see there was some value in that bin…

 

A couple of days ago, I decided to add more detail…

 

Voila…a lion’s heart (and face…)

 

A lion’s tail…this and all of the details created from used paper…

 

Lion’s mouth…

 

Roar!

 

Lion Ensemble

 

In the classroom…and sweet hugs goodbye…

 

Hanging out…

“Why do you care so much about the environment?” asked a young’un.

I didn’t say much in response.

Not sure if I have a response except for that I do feel like this Earth is a womb…something alive and wonderful and magical…that my eyes feel more comfortable amongst the trees and water…

it provides for me and provides joy…

BTW, here are some plant-based ingredients for toxin-free paints for children (and adults…):

1) corn syrup  — around 1/4 cup
2) corn starch and/or baking soda — around 1 cup

and 3):

pink     beets

turquoise     red cabbage
green     spinach or carrot tops
yellow     tumeric
brown     coffee/black tea
