      here is a blog of someone I know from another forum, it has been very inspiring to me and I have used alot of similar philospohies. I have been doing alot of 'swapping' recently. As in instead of buying Luca new growsuits I posted asking if anyone has some they weren't using and we negotiated a swap in order to save resources and rebel (in a tiny,tiny way) about consumption and the idea that we just 'buy,buy, buy'.

              Just spent the last half hour looking at that site, and BOY! I have some ideas now!
              I have saved it and will return for sure! I will be trying out that dress pattern of her, that is gorgeous! I have a wedding to go to in a few months and have plenty of material here that my Gran so lovingly gave to me, so I can make heaps of stuff! I love the little pillowcase dresses! I'll have to make the girls a few of those too ..... my creative brain is tick tick ticking!!!

                Like my mum, who spotted a bottle of organic milk in my fridge and said, "Uh-oh Sal, you're turning into a greenie..." What the???

                          What is GREX?

                          GREX History - GREX has been researched, developed and established by WSB Media Group. The concept and initiative was seeded by the recent inaugural Australian National Green Build & Eco Show, an event owned and presented by the WSB Media Group.

                          Sydneysiders - my due date is the day before this conference begins, so depending on what bub decides to do I will be doing my darndest to be there! My husband will be going as well - so if anyone is interested in meeting up we can organise something closer to the time
