Cool Stuff: Freddie the Alligator

For our department Christmas party last year, we went to a pottery kiln.

Yep: We chose it ourselves! It looked like a lot of fun from the description.

And we were right.

Just Kiln’ Time is an amazing place with over 600 objects to choose from to glaze and paint, plus other creative, crafty things to do. They show you what to do, how to do it, and leave you free to go to it.

Unless of course you need some “Agh! I didn’t mean to do that!” advice in a hurry.

But the real point of this post is really just to show you my alligator, Freddie.

Is it easy being green? It can be!

I’m happy to be a guest blogger on the fantastic Enter: Adulthood website, run by the equally fantastic Diana Antholis!

Since I care about being green where you can (and when you can), Diana asked if I’d write about a few of the easy, everyday things we can do to bring some green into our lives.
