Jacquie's Up-Cycle Nation: Woodland Summer

August has arrived signaling the final days of summer.  With play dates and vacation frolic coming to a close, make the most of the hours remaining with woodland celebrations!  These Etsy up-cycle artists help by putting the exclamation point on cute!

Take the woodland critters to the picnic, classroom, or the office, with a whimsical lunch bag from alittlelark.  Each bag is made with eco friendly recycled cotton canvas for feel good treats inside and out.
Turn heads with over-sized soft sculpture moth brooches;  perfect for wearing or adorning a billowing curtain for woodland magic. Willowynn creates forest fabulous works of fiber art!
 Bring the forest home with these playful cut outs from MettaPrints. Lightweight, easy to assemble and oh-so-eco-friendly!
Read all about woodland fox facts with this info-zine illustrated by LyndseyGreen. This shop is stocked with sweet characters on a variety of useful products. Bonus: 10% of the sales on select items are donated to prevent animal cruelty.
Woodland sweeties look right at home when painted on rescued tree bits.  From hibernating porcupines to majestic mountains, TangentsBySHS covers the "woodsman in us all".
