I was very happy to discover the SEEDSTORE today. It’s an amazing boutique that has many eco-friendly items – upcycled jewelry, vintage clothes, and awesome garage sale art work. If you live in the bay area I highly recommend you make a visit to this store. It is owned by two sisters that both have excellent taste.
SEEDSTORE is a boutique and collaborative space that brings to the Inner Richmond men’s, and women’s apparel + vintage goods. Born out of love, sweat, and laughter of sisters, Jennifer and Cynthia Huie. We love fashion, music, art, and collecting. Our vision has been to create a space to display the fashion that we enjoy and share the stories of the designers and the love that they’ve put into their creations.
Having a three year old son and being an artsy person myself we make a lot of art in our house. Finding eco friendly art supplies is important.
One of our favorite mediums is crayons on cardboard. I love the way the colors look on the tan cardboard.
Lately we have been going through more art supplies. Crayons get broke into tiny pieces and become unusable. Play doh doesn’t get put away becomes hard. We paint on the front and back of everything possible.
I am keeping all of the bits of crayons thinking someday I will melt them together and make one big crayon or some cool shapes like these.
I have seen a lot of recipes for homemade play dough but I haven’t tried any yet, Do you have any that you recommend?
Here are a couple great websites I have came across while looking for eco art supplies :
Clementine Art -Natural. Fresh. Real. I am going to have to check these supplies out. I am especially curious about the paint(especially for my art projects)
Eco-kids eco-kids is dedicated to offering art supplies for creative play the natural way using only the most natural ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.
