I love the idea, but is it sterile enough for business use where the Health inspectors hate everything non conventional.

Avoid plastic wrap from now on and learn how to make a reusable beeswax wrap - for packing up lunches, covering storage containers, or storing that half apple that's left over.

We'll also share other ideas for a sustainable kitchen - think shopping in jars & bags, on-the-go cutlery, paper towel alternatives, etc.
Bring your ideas and how-tos to share!

Things we will need (bring if you have them):
- scrap 100% cotton fabric (leftovers, old clothing, etc.)
- beeswax (a block or leftovers from beeswax candles)
- scissors
- old iron
- parchment paper
- wooden board to work on (that can get wax on it)
OR
- old cookie sheet
- clean paint brush or kitchen brush (that you don't need for anything other than wax after)
- old cheese grater (that you don't need for anything other than wax after)

THIS MONTH:

Learn how to create a custom, reusable dayplanner (or journal) from an old hardcover book.

Instead of buying a new dayplanner each year, Anne will show you how to make a reusable handmade cover from an old hardcover book, and how to attach the new pages each year!

If you have an old hardcover 5.5”x9” (min) book or two, please bring them along!

If you want to pre-print the inside pages, you can down a file from here: PassionPlanner: www.passionplanner.com/

Print your dayplanner on 8.5" x 11" paper (to be folded in half) in 4 signatures (or you can come and see Anne's sample and print it later!).
