Going green with little ones is not always easy， try hard as you may.？ Although I make choices in our home daily that will help our environment， with three kids， we fill our trash bin to capacity each week.？ Even though we also fill our recycle bin each weekcanvas throw pillow covers， I always feel like we could do more.
This month， we have a featured collection that may just help on this front. Our Organic Geometric crib bedding collection features 100% Certified Organic cotton fabrics colored with low-impact dyes. ？For something to be certified “organic” it must meet a set of standards， which you can read more about in our previous blog “；Keeping it Green.”；sofa pillow cases
You won’t have to sacrifice style with this organic print collection.？ The Steel Gray and Lime geometric design is also the perfect gender-neutral option for your nursery. Not only will you enjoy the modern design of this bedding collection for many years， you will be helping to maintain our natural resources.
In honor of our featured collection， we are running a contest to hopefully spread the word on things we can do to help the environment.？ As tough as it is with small kids –； many messes， growing out of clothes weekly， etc –； let’s hear your tip on how to cut down on waste.？ However small， we would love to hear your unique idea.
We’ll pick our favorite and the grand prize will be， of course， a 4-piece Organic Geometric crib bedding set! ？We think your little environmentalist will love it!？ And we will love spreading your ways to be eco-friendly while raising a family.

Couldn't possibly forget about those of you who are working or studying in the home - so please have pleasure reading our essentials list on home offices. You need good quality pieces in your home office to provide comfort and you shouldn't sacrifice style in a room less prominent that lounges or kitchens for example. Things like storage will vary, depending on the space you have and how many supplies you intend to store away.
I’ve carried a camera with me just about everywhere for most of my life. At first was one of those long 1990s 110 cameras that sort of looked like hand-held tape recorders. Then my dad gave me his 35 mm and my love for photography grew. After that I got a Polaroid and became addicted to being able to see the photo I’d taken right away. Well, almost right away. I was one of those impatient people who would shake and wave the photo until the image appeared a mere 90 seconds later. My first digital camera solved my anxious shaking problem because now I could see the photo right away. The only bummer was that my digital camera was an SLR and it was heavy and I was always telling people to hold on just a second while I adjusted the light settings. Then came the iPhone and I finally met my camera soulmate. Even if I didn’t feel like lugging around my heavy DSLR with me, I always had my phone with me. My iPhone solved all my photo-obsession problems because it allowed me to not only take high-quality crisp photographs but also edit them immediately with an app like Instagram and make them look like Polaroids or blur the background for a SLR-ish effect.
