Food that is flavorful and cute. The Kawaii art of cooking.

I wish I could fully tell you about what Kawaii cooking art is, but all I can say about it is that it's cute food. I mean the stuff is just adorable and good for you. I'm in awe of it and wish I could do something like this at home, but my creativity has hit a road block. It's just something that you have to see to understand. EnslavedByFaeries has a great resource page on Squidoo about the art and you should really check it out.

Cute Food - The Adorable, Edible Art Of Kawaii Cooking

50 things that can be recycled.

The title alone sounds scary. Why does it sound scary? Most of us do our part and recycle some of our waste. At our home we recycle plastic and we compost a lot of our food that doesn't get eaten. That's a pretty short list and yet for us that's a lot of waste that doesn't get dumped. Our trash can use to be overflowing before we could have it taken away weekly. After we changed our habits it's now barely full each week. Seeing the title 50 things that can be recycled is like a wake up call to me and that's scary. I can't believe how many things that can be recycled and we just throw things away.

The huge list is not all about taking your items to a recycling center. There are many things that can be reused for other purposes. Like donating your old clothes instead of throwing them away. You can recycle your electronics. Things like that are easy to do and most of the time it doesn't impact our daily lives. I mean who throws away electronics daily? You can just set it aside until you have some spare time to have it recycled. Recycling doesn't have to be a chore. You can even get your kids involved. Just make sure that they know where things go like soda cans, paper and plastic. Remember they learn from us so teach by example and never let it be a burden or it won't seem as easy as it is.

Giving The Gift Of Going Green.

Want ideas on gifts that are eco friendly? Do you know someone who lives a greener lifestyle? We all should do our part even if it's something small. Giving green gifts is a eco friendly and useful way of saying "I care about you and the Earth".

We've all been guilty of giving cheap and wasteful gifts. Some end up being regifted or just tossed away. So why no break the habit and give something that's practical and better for the environment.

So if you need any ideas on what to get check out Top 10 Best Green Gift Ideas and see if anything may interest you. There might be something there that you would want for yourself.

Haven't been able to get on much.

As usual I'm pretty busy being a mom and I just can't get on here enough to do what I have to do. It's also been hectic due to illness and my ever growing foot issue. Crazy foot is swollen and numb plus sometimes painful. Well I'm going to be spending some time tonight while the kids are calm and work on promoting the best of squidoo. I won't be able to get everything done, but I will have a small slice of the squidoo pie on here.

I'm Kharadriisa And A Squidoo Angel.

I'm one of the newest Squidoo Angels. They are starting with an all new group for the New Year. It's my job to help promote lenses that are exceptional. Everyone has their own ideas of what they are looking for in a bless worthy lens. I'm not 100% set on any factor. The lens can't be against the TOS or spammy. Those will most likely never receive a blessing.

I like to see lenses that think outside of the box. Keep your lenses original. No copy and paste please. I do check that often. Do something that's not been done before. If you've done well then I'll bless. I'm not a dinger unless it's against the TOS.

Where do I look for lenses for a blessing? Well I have no set place and will just browse through Squidoo and look around.

See you around in Squidoo land.
