Upcycling Plastic Bags: Plarn

What a wonderful idea to reuse and reduce the plastic bags going into our landfills.  Here is my tutorial on making plarn:
 Take a clean plastic bag.  Lay it flat
Fold it in half


 Fold it in half again
 Cut the bottom off.  Put that in your bag to make kitty toys with.
 Cut the handle off.  Put that in your bag to make kitty toys
Cut your bag evenly to make complete circles
Pull the circles together to form and length of plarn.  Crochet and/or knit as you desire.  Great for area rugs, soda can cozies, coasters....let your mind go wild.....

Walk with Grandma

Author: unknown
I Like to Walk with Grandma

I like to walk with Grandma,
she takes small steps like mine.
She never says "let's hurry-up!
she always takes her time.
I like to walk with Grandma,
her eyes see things like mine.
Shiny stones, a fluffy cloud,
stars at night that shine.
People rush their whole day through,
they rarely stop to see.
I'm glad that God made Grandmas
unrushed and young like me!
