My Favorite Things....Birthday Extravaganza - 3

Today is Day 3 the My Favorite Things Birthday Extravaganza!  This is such a great item for traveling for your child.


My friend, Caroline, at UPTOTE says this about her company….”UPTOTE is my company, I design and make upcycled products for the retail market. Started in 2010, upcycling has been a part of who I am since I was a little girl taking my cable knit socks and cutting them into vests for my dolls. Upcycling takes many forms and hopefully I can share some of my insights with you along the way.”


I know Caroline and her family personally and am proud to call her a friend.
 She takes her business very seriously and things she can do to make our planet “greener” is a priority to her.


One of MY favorite products she makes (among handbags and more) is this great carry-all crayon/pad book (that I have purchased personally for my kids)!   Everything has a place and it stores so easy.  We use them out to dinner, for carschooling and at the dr waiting rooms….

Hi Melissa! These are cute!! I will head to her site! Let's see, to be "green" the biggest thing we do is recycle everything!! My husband also bought a fuel efficient Honda Fit as his commuter car....sometimes 40+ miles to the gallon.

If you have a recipe, today is linky day!

One thing we do to go green is use Basic H household cleaner from Shaklee. It is awesome stuff!

I love this particular favorite of yours. I have been wanting to make one for our kids but it would be even better to win one!

I think my favorite thing is the Crayon Art Organizer...but I also love the pencil/crayon UPTOTE strap! It's just so clever. I wonder if she used elastic (like she does on that) and VELCRO whether she could come up with something that would strap on to any size hardcover notebook or journal? That would be super nifty!

And I commented on a post about a bag she was making (a pretty one with a black and white pattern).

The best green thing we ever did was buy an energy efficient washer and dryer. We have three boys, so we do a LOT of laundry...and our electricity bill was lower than the previous year every month for a full year after doing that (our statement shows a comparison of the past 12 months...so you get to compare April to April, May to May, etc. The first month after we got that the electricity was higher than the previous year was exactly one year later, so we HAD the new dryer/washer the previous year we were comparing it to.

Thanks for the comments, keep them coming, at Gale, I actually do have an elastic crayon organizer, that fits onto a compostion book, but I could make it any size...
