About the Yarn Lover’s Candle

“Shed some good light on your surroundings! Made from 100% pure beeswax, Twisted Lights look exactly like a ball of yarn. Each one dyed by hand, like yarn, no two alike. The smaller Twisted Light burns for approximately 20 hours, the Large over 50 hours. Like all of our products, Twisted Lights are individually made by hand. They come packaged in a kraft box.”

SmartChick At the Blog Carnival with Edgi

I recently had the opportunity to do some research and writing into the t-shirt industry. One of the things that interested me most was that there are a lot of different ways to alter t-shirts and recycle t-shirts rather than just throwing them away when you don’t want to wear them anymore. Two of the posts that I wrote about this were included in blog carnivals recently.

30 Ways to Recycle Your Cool Graphic Tees was included in the Reduce, ReUse, Recycle Section of the All Things Eco blog carnival. Other posts in this category were on Enviro Produce Bags, Recycling Plastic Bags and Dealing with e-waste.

50 Ways to Alter Cute Tees into Sexier Shirts was included in the Make It From Scratch blog carnival. Some of the other posts included in this blog carnival were on upcycled sweaters, mixed media art education and warming your home.

Lots of good green and DIY posts in all of these carnivals so have a read if you’ve got some free time.
