The Ecology Center - Earth Day!

We had a GREAT day today at The Ecology Center in San Juan Capistrano! French Basketeer sponsored a booth for "decorate your own" reusable bags, and let me tell you, the kids loved it! Wow, just set them up and let them go; no creativity lacking here today. There were a lot of Mother's Day bags being made; lots of hearts and peace signs and glue-on rhinestone hearts. What would you rather carry, a bag with the name of your local grocery store, or a bag your child decorated for you? We also had some fantastic felt hats in the form of animals and bugs; deemed "Mother Earth animal hats"; the kids loved them! How cute are these boys?? All proceeds from the hats and bags went to The Ecology Center.
OK Evan, you have to tell me the story behind the Organic Peonies; the one flower I can't grow here; I covet them from my grandmother's house in Calgary.
Special thanks to Brynne for her lino stamps; eco-artist extraordinaire. Thank you to Maria and Max for making today happen!!
