Stalking Saturday aka Traipsing Tuesday

This is really the Traipsing Tuesday post, but today is Saturday and I needed some alliteration.

It's been quite some time since I've done a little scouring of the Internet for unsuspecting bloggers are are doing a little green without even thinking about it. It's kind of like the Publisher's Clearinghouse Sweepstakes of blogging - I kind of show up on your internet doorstep with a bunch of organic flowers and a huge check made out of recycled cardboard. Only there's no check - there isn't even a cute button. So here, as Big Binder once suggested is the third "leaning toward greening" awards:

Nini Makes hosted a very nice carnival, which I missed, called Make It From Scratch, and there were a number of very green activities going on over there. For Joan's incredible summary go here, but here are a few green highlights.

GreenStyleMom is thinking ahead. REALLY thinking Christmas...but look at these adorable holiday cards she made that are now available on CafePress.

Then, if you're a budding crocheter like me...and a Wanna-Grennie, you'll love My Recycled Bags. I mean, look at this handbag made from recycled bread only question it bigger than a bread box? HAHAHAHAAHAHHA, oh Lordy, I crack myself up. Cindy even provides directions. What a gal.

And finally, Welcome to my Brain has instructions for whole wheat bread. I have perused many a recipe for making my own bread, but yes, I am scared. Maybe I'll try this - I've just about had it trying to find a fairly mainstream bread without high fructose corn syrup.

You must try making your own bread! Even if you don't love the loaf in the end (though I'm sure you will) you'll love the way your house smells.

Okay. I'm gonna do it. I have the yeast and the King Arthur's flour so there's no more excuses...gulp.
