Trash to Treasure: Re-Imagining Your Waste {Easter}
While I don’t celebrate Easter, it’s nearly impossible to avoid it.  Every store you visit you’re bombarded with plastic eggs and grass, copious amounts of wanna-be chocolate, peeps that now come in every shade of the rainbow and Easter baskets designed to only get you through the day.  Why not skip the store and try your hand at some of these creative upcycled, repurposed finds instead?
