Crafty Update: Lavender Dryer Sachets

This past Christmas, one of the handmade gifts I distributed was a set of lavender dryer sachets. Basically, they’re little pillows stuffed with dried lavender that you throw into your clothes dryer instead of using commercial dryer sheets, which are made with all kinds of gross (and harmful) petroleum based chemicals and animal fats. These are better for people and better for the environment, and they last a really long time and make your clothes smellĀ of sweet, herbal lavender. They were such a big hit, I got orders from people who weren’t lucky enough to receive them as gifts but saw someone else receive them. So, I figured I better start selling them! Now available at Dote Handmade Goods. $15 for a set of three or get a sample and try one out for $5 (plus shipping).

Crafty Update: New Blog Mention!

Just want to say thanks to Laura at Bright Bold Beautiful who has included my recycled map stationery in her current holiday list of “favorite things.” These puppies are taking off this year — I hope it continues! Thanks to everyone for all of your support. It was even on the front page of Etsy this morning, and as we all know, that is major exposure and something I’d been hoping for for ages! Onward! Let’s hope one day this will be my day job!!

Crafty Update: Green Upgrader

I’d like to give a shout out to a cool website that is currently featuring my recycled map stationery in their holiday gift guide: Green Upgrader! I am really psyched to be included in the group of eco-friendly gift ideas that they’ve assembled. This is a super cool site, and handmade (especially eco-friendly) gifts are the “in” thing this year. And hopefully every year!

My recycled map stationery can be purchased here!

It’s really very affordable, and you can feel good about buying a product that supports sustainability and an independent artisan. Perfect for your favorite traveller or eco-minded pal.
