I am not great at traditional recycling by any means, but the thought of being able to avoid waste by reusing something makes me feel good. My old coffee cans are now covered in pretty paper and being used to store things, coffee grounds can be used to make face scrubs, used tea bags are great for cleaning and repelling bugs. I am always looking for ways to give things a second life, which occasionally clutters my life a bit. The amount of old pasta jars I have lying around waiting to be useful again is almost embarrassing.
We’re headed into fall and my little family is settling back into routines and saying goodbye to summer already, and it’s left me a little overwhelmed. To ease that, I have been trying to find some positivity in my little craft area and in my garden that I will have no idea what to do with when the weather cools down.

These are not major, life changing projects, but changing your outlook can change your life.
