Forrest Concepts: Recycling old books into journals. Brilliant.

Last week I entered a giveaway for a gift certificate from Sarah Jo of Forrest Concepts. I enter contests and giveaways all the time. I have NEVER won anything. Well, I take that back, there was that one time I supposedly won a book, but I never received it. So, technically, I guess I can say I have NEVER won a giveaway.

:-)

I received a convo from Sarah that I’d won her Facebook Fan Page giveaway. The prize was a gift certificate to one of her shops.  I chose to ‘spend’ it in her Forrest Concepts Etsy Shop. You can find her Diem Designs facebook fan page at http://www.facebook.com/DiemDesigns.

The journals she creates for Forrest Designs are really quite clever. Each is hand fabricated from discarded or otherwise recycled books and filled with 30% post consumer recycled paper. By keeping books from landfills, we lessen society’s carbon footprint and contribute to a greener economy. All unused pages are carefully recycled.

She’s got lots to choose from in her etsy shop, but says “not all my journals are in my store plus I have TONs of books waiting to be made into journals. Just send me a convo, and I’ll check my stock.”



Forrest Concepts is also in the midst of a big big sale right now too. Check it out at
