I must admit I have a deep need to buy magazines and books, I have them everywhere, just ask my family. I try very hard not to buy them, but I always get really excited when I see a new one. I always manage to find at least one really cool idea in every craft or sewing magazine that I look at. So when I found this idea on Pinterest I knew it was a match made in heaven. I can continue to feed my new interest of living a zero waste life and create something cool and useful. Plus it will fit into my small home and help me when it comes to storage.

One of my Goals in Life

I have a lot of goals in life. One of them is to leave as little of a footprint as possible having a zero waste home and business or at least as close as possible.
At It's The Small Things we work every day to achieve this goal. We use scrap's from other projects for smaller item. For example, our finger puppets, stick puppets, and mini animals are all made with scraps of felt. I have bags and bags of small pieces of cotton fabrics that I plan to put together and make scrap crayon rolls. I think they will be really cute and all of those pieces of fabric can be used for something cute and useful. We are trying everyday to come up with more ways to reduce our waste.
I have just started researching zero waste homes and I saw this and I just love it. I know its very small but I think it will work for me and just think how small my utility bills would be.I can just imagine my green garden outside the windows and all my embroidery machines at the other end of this wonderful little home.
Let me know what you think, could you live in a tiny home?

Do you Know about Pinterest

I have always had a million bookmarks to sort thru on my computer. The bookmarks included all the things I liked and want to create. Then a few months ago I lost everything and had to start over when my computer crashed. For this reason I have become addicted to Pinetrest, it is like a dream come true for me.

Pinterest is a virtual pinboard. It allows a person to organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the internet as well as other peoples pinboards. You will find everything from projects to recipies and organizing ideas to kids activities.
