You know you want one....

So this past weekend, I participated in Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk. and distributed about 70 'epilepsy isn't waterproof' bracelets. They were quite a hit! I left most of them at the info table, on top of a photo of Marieke with the dates of her birth and death, and they went SOFAST! I still have 15 to sell through the website, since that is to help me cover the costs of buying more. Which I will have to do very soon! But if you would like one of your own, to support our mission, please click here.

In other news, I've moved into my new place, and am preparing to green it. I will document this process, but first I have to unpack stuff so it's not such a mess!

Happy Earth Day!

So, how green were you?? I admit, I didn't do anything especially green today. I threw a couple things into the recycle bin, checked out some green goods at Crate & Barrel. I've actually been trying to get a BIG green project going. I'm buying a mobile home! And GREENING it. :-D Everything I'm buying, everything I'm doing to it, will be green. If it's possible, and in my budget, of course. Which means recycled, second-hand, sustainable, handmade or eco-friendly products. I've already got a few, and when I get settled, I'll be photographing and reporting on it. I'm thinking about a video blog, how would you like that?

In other news, there is a new article online about ozville! It's at two different sites, check them out:

Remembering Marieke & educating about epilepsy

Remembering Marieke: Actress Kendal Brenneman Welcomes You to Ozville to Educate about Epilepsy & Water Safety

I've also sold 9 epilepsy bracelets this month, yay! And this sunday will be the big give-out at Sharon's Ride.Run.Walk.

Stay green.

Green Chic

I was looking through my notebook, where I've been keeping track of various websites and ideas, and realized how many of them came from this book I just finished. It's definitely a keeper, and I'm sure will be a very useful resource to me in the following months and years. I thought I'd just go ahead and recommend it, because it's a good book, and I'm being lazy today. :-D Honestly, I've just been focusing so much on preparing for my new place and how I'm going to 'green' it that I haven't had time to think of a good blog post! When some of my items arrive, and I see how fabulous they are, I'll be posting about them, of course. I'm actually considering doing some video blogs, but I'm not sure how I want to go about it. I'll keep pondering that. In the meantime, check out this book: Green Chic, Saving the Earth in Style, by Christie Matheson. Christie shares all sorts of easy things anyone can do to make their life more green, without sacrificing their sense of style. It's filled with some great ideas and even more great websites to help you find the perfect bedroom, kitchen or bath supplies. Plus tips on traveling, and food, and what materials you should avoid contact with. Let me know what you think!
