Salvage, Salvage, Salvage

So... I came to Albany, NY to visit my family for a couple of weeks. This past weekend my Aunt and I went to this INCREDIBLE salvage yard where we found some cool things I can use to display my bags. I got an old crib rail and an antique clothes rack... reuse and recycle right? Anyway, I am so excited and I just cannot wait to make my display so funky and neat-o at my next event on the 22nd of November! Yay!

The creative spurt

They arrived!

My organic cotton and recycled cotton shopping toes have arrived! And, just in time! I have to make about 6 bags tonight. One to donate as a door prize for TM's birthday party and 5 more for the event at an elementary school tomorrow. I'll post pics later..

And, greenmum now is on Myspace.. ha ha

Now I'm in trouble...

so.. I did it. I took a lot of people's advice and got an Etsy account set up. Which, made me have to set up a paypay account. Which, made me hyperventilate! LOL!

Stephen is going to help me set up a cool banner, and I should have some totes up for sale by Tuesday or Wednesday!

Yay, me!

Oh... it's greenmumtotes.etsy.com

Our first vendor event!

So... We headed out to The Oz Block Party on downtown Greensboro today. I didn't SELL as many bags I wanted to, but I did get the word out!! I need business cards... anyhoo... Pics are above!

The logo has been created! And, what's in a name?

My husband is so wonderful and designed the green mum logo for me. He rocks!

I'll bet you are wondering where I got the name "green mum." (Okay, maybe you aren't but, I'm going to give you the scoop anyway! ;) ) I wanted to be Green Mama, but that name was already taken.. so I tried Green Mom.... Then, I thought.. Green Mommy.. but nothing felt right. My husband and I were being silly and just walking around the house saying, "Green..uh.. Ma" "Green Mammy" "Green Momsy" Then, I said "Green Mummy" And, we looked at eachother and said. "Green MUM!" So, it's not only because I am a new mommy trying to ge as GREEN as I can, but it is also a pretty flower! How lucky are we?!

I don't know why I am so excited about this, but I have found a fun new hobby... I am crafting canvas totes, bookbags, and gift bags. It's environmentally friendly and fun!

Today I not only found eco friendly acrylic paint, but I also painted my first owl!! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be...

I'll post pictures later.
