After this lovely selfie with my mother and some of my siblings I thought it was a good time to craft! It is always a good time to craft. The question is what to craft? I made a delicious green juice as I pondered this and decided to get creative with the leftovers. How creative can one get? I made stamps with my veggie scraps! Here is how you make yours.

You aren’t limited to just using celery. You can use apples, peppers, okra or any cool shaped fruit or veggie. You can use this techinque on card stock or get some fabric paint and jazz up a t-shirt! It is a great project for the kids and an even better one for your granny.
