As usual Pinterest has blown my mind! In my quest to find crafts for items that would otherwise be recycled or thrown out I found these crafts that use jar lids, pot tops,strainers, forks, spoons, bottle caps, whatever!! I am in love with this! The Kitchen Owl makes for a great housewarming gift or rainy day craft for students. The Kitchen Owl is the perfect way to really implement the ideas of Reduce, Recycle, & Reuse.  Think of all of the things that would have otherwise been thrown out. Talk about another man’s trash is another mans treasure!  This just goes to show that you really can reuse almost anything if you put your mind to it creatively. 
I found this at the perfect time because while reorganizing my kitchen I put aside a bunch of kitchen items that really aren’t so usable anymore and should be recycled or things we had a bunch of that we didn’t need. I cannot wait to break open that box and get started on all the fun animals that can be made. You can probably do bunnies, kittens even dogs. Get creative you can add other things to the kitchen craft they don’t have to all be metal. Use glitter or paint and make them colorful. Add stickers or jewels to them.

 I am absolutely loving Pinterest lately! It is a great social networking site that brings people together with images which I tend to think are much more powerful than words in situations like these. Pinterest has helped a great deal with our dog rescue efforts as well as showing people how to do green crafts, upcycle and where to find green products. When people can see the images of “green” next to other images I think it will make them less averse to try going green because in reality the difference for you is almost nothing compared to the difference for our environment and global community. So with that said here is my contest. You have until Friday March 9th to follow all of my boards on Pinterest. On March 10th I will choose a winner to send a special green prize!!
