  1. I have disliked the waste of wrapping paper at Christmas…it lasts a whole two minutes before being ripped and tossed away, so this year I started a new tradition of wrapping in usable fabric items like table napkins or drawstring bags that can be used over the year. Just a little something I could change and I did. Peace be, all you Eco Etsiers, Have a great Eco 20-12

  2. I learned how to weave a rag rug.

  3. My biggest achievement this year was that I finally managed to leave my partner and move into my own house.
    Next year I want to plant lots of flowers in my garden and I need to make a better income from my business so I don’t have to go back to working full time with my day job.
    And if my eco friendly business are successful, hopefully my designs will replace less sustainable alternatives.
