The Different Uses for the Versatile Bone Folder

Have you ever used a bonefolder? Bone folders are a great DIY tool for crafts. Make origami with a bone folder. Learn how to do bookbinding with a bonefolder. Find out how to use a bone folder.

A bone folder is a dull-edged hand tool that can be used to fold and crease material to give a sharper fold than pressing with fingers can give. You can put more pressing on the fold, really digging the crease into the paper, leather, or other material that you are folding.

Despite the name, they can be made of other materials than bone, like plastic or metal. Those made from bone, however, are less likely to leave a residue on the finished product than plastic.

Another common material that bone folders are made from is bamboo, which is popular in Japan.

Here are some ways to use your versatile bone folder:

Make a greeting card

A homemade greeting card can be made with a bone folder! Either print out or design a greeting card on the computer, or take some thick paper. Using a ruler to find the center, you can then fold the card and press the bone folder against the folded edge to dig the fold in deep.

You then have a nicely folded card ready for further decoration! And that fold won’t be coming out easily.

Create origami

Bone folders are great for origami! Because origami calls for a lot of folding that can leave the paper too thick for your fingers to press effectively, the bone folder makes quick and easy work of those folds. A bone folder will set the lines in hard so that your origami is striking for weeks to come.

For leather working

Leather can be thin, but more often it is very thick. This can make it hard to fold for more intricate and fancy leather projects. A bone folder comes in handy here to press in that deep fold or for scoring in lines. This is especially useful for leather bookbinding.

For bookbinding

When bookbinding, you’re folding 8 to 16 pages (or more!) most of the time. Again, because that many pages is thick and hard for you to fold with your fingers, you want a tool that is dull (so it won’t scratch throught the paper like your nails might) but that can press in a fold.

I hope this has helped you to find a new role for your bone folder! I use mine fairly often and find it to be a very useful little tool that is inexpensive to boot.

Building An Ethical Wardrobe Is A Rewarding And Important Act of Mindfulness

Ethical fashion: The why and how of creating an ethical wardrobe that doesn't hurt humans, animals, or the environment. #fashion #ecofriendly #ethicalfashion #vegan #vegetarian #humanrights

What is ethical fashion?

Ethical sustainable fashion is essentially going back to the original form of the fashion industry: Well made pieces, made from high quality materials, and made to stand the test of time.

Even though ethical fashion is based in the past, it’s a present and future trend and becoming more popular as the general public starts to realize the destruction that the fashion industry can create.

Ethical fashion is the exact opposite of the fast fashion you see on websites like Wish. Those cheap clothes are the product of horrible working conditions, low pay, bad materials, and fast production times that make the end product quick to break down and contributes to both human rights abuses and climate change.

There are different “levels” of ethical fashion. The most basic is fashion that doesn’t contribute to human rights abuses and harms the environment less than fast fashion, but you can take it further by choosing vegan-only options, local materials, local companies, and companies that are carbon neutral or carbon negative.

It doesn’t matter how big or small a brand is, if they exploit human labor, are cruel to humans or animals, and damage the environment, they are unethical fashion. The goal is to purge your closet of clothes from those brands, and fill it with clothes from brands that are a net positive on the world (or, at the very least, net neutral).

When trying to figure out if a brand is ethical, consider these questions:

  • Would you want to be treated the way their workers are treated?
  • Would you be willing to do to animals what they do to make their clothes?
  • Are you happy with how the brand treats the earth? Are they polluting the air your breath or the water you drink?

Personally, I want nothing to do with unethical fashion anymore. I mostly buy thrifted clothes now, but on the rare occasion that I do buy something new, I make sure it is from a company that treats humans, animals, and the earth in a way that I agree with.

Why is ethical fashion important?

There are so many important elements of ethical fashion that it would take a whole book to discuss why ethical fashion is important. But the simplest answer is that ethical fashion improves our society in a simple way.

For people who only think of fashion in dollars and cents, it can be hard to understand why expensive ethical fashion might be worth it.

Why is ethical fashion expensive? Many people rightly notice that ethical fashion is too expensive, but there are reasons that justify the hefty price tag. Clothes that are made in an ethical way generally are made with better materials and with better techniques that increase the life of the clothes.

The hidden cost of fast fashion is that it isn’t just fast to produce, it’s also fast to wear out. There is also the hidden cost to the environment, which will cost us all money (and so much more) in the long run. And it costs human and animal lives, which are worth more than money.

So when you buy fast fashion instead of ethical fashion, you have to ask yourself… is that flimsy shirt worth the cost?

How can you make your wardrobe ethical?

  • Care for all of your clothes in a way that will increase their lives. Fast fashion relies on you to not care for your clothes so that you have to buy more from those fast fashion brands. It’s planned obsolescence but for clothes.
  • When your clothes have met the end of their life, recycle them or use them for craft projects. Turn them into a new clothing item, use them for embroidery, or create napkins from them.
  • Buy vintage and thrifted clothes. This is the one area where I allow myself to buy without worrying about the brand, because the brand won’t be getting another dollar from me. I personally don’t wear anything that advertises the brand, though. Find local thrift stores (preferably a thrift store that doesn’t have a recognizable name, as all the big thrift stores have become greedy and focused more and more on profit).
  • Buy local. You probably know someone that sews, knits, or crochets. And you probably have a shoe cobbler nearby that you could use to care for your shoes. When you do this, you’re also able to make sure the clothes were made in the US, where the labor laws take care of a lot of the issues you would otherwise have to research.
  • Buy from ethical brands. Research the brands you might buy from and never buy from a brand without having researched their practices. When you buy from ethical companies, you reward the companies doing well and incentivize the companies that are abusing humans, animals and the environment to change their ways.
  • Invest in quality pieces that will be useful for years to come and could possibly even be passed down if taken care of. Think back, and you can probably remember some clothes that your grandma wore that was passed down to your mom and maybe even you. That’s what happens when you buy quality clothing and take care of it. Yes, this means spending more now, but in the end you and those you pass your clothes down to will be spending much less.

How to shop ethical fashion?

Whether you want to make your entire wardrobe more ethical or just focus on a few pieces, there are a few tips you can follow to make the transition easier:

  • Research your favorite brands. Often, it’s as simple as Googling whether or not a brand is ethical. Important things to consider: How much do they pay workers? Have they been accused or bad working conditions? Are there any reports on chemical spills? You can use the following sites to research clothing companies:
  • Buy handmade. This doesn’t mean you can just go on Etsy and assume the clothes you buy there will be ethical! Some people do skirt by the rules and sell fast fashion on Etsy. But if you do some research, Etsy is a great place to buy fashion. Other options include farmers’ markets and craft fairs.
  • Buy from thrift stores. Clothes that are thrifted are clothes that are subverting the fashion industry, increasing the lifespan of good clothes and avoiding contributing to the problem of poor working conditions.

I hope with this information you will find it easier to shop for ethical fashion. If you can make it easier, you’ll be more likely to follow through and convince others to do the same!

Why is ethical fashion important? #fashion #ecofriendly #ethicalfashion #vegan #vegetarian #humanrights

I am committed to shopping more ethically, choosing thrifted items and slower, more traditional methods of clothing creation because I care about human rights and the environment. Why are you committed to ethical fashion?

The Amazing Benefits and Uses of Tea Tree Oil

tea tree oil for vagina

Tea tree oil, which comes from an Australian tea tree and is also known as melaleuca oil, is an essential oil made from steaming the tree’s leaves.

It’s one of the few essential oils that I use and truly believe in its efficacy. A lot of information about essential oils is more folklore than science, but there is real science behind the uses for tea tree oil.

Either way, when used correctly, tea tree oil is safe to use topically. I don’t recommend ingesting it, though. It’s toxic when you swallow it. For that reason, I don’t suggest using it as a mouthwash, because you may accidentally swallow it.

Note: I’m not a doctor. I can’t give you medical advice and am just sharing my own anecdotes and what I’ve read about over the years. So please see your doctor for any medical issues you’re dealing with!

So what are some tea tree oil uses?

  • Tea tree oil used with a carrier oil is useful for acne. Mind, this is not true for hormonal acne, which usually presents itself around the chin.
  • When in a pinch, tea tree oil can be used as a hand sanitizer. Studies show that tea tree oil kills common bacteria and viruses, including E. coli, S. pneumoniae and H. influenzae (1). Here is a recipe for making a simple, moisturizing hand sanitizer using tea tree oil.
  • Dandruff relief is one of my favorite uses for tea tree oil. After I shampoo my hair, I mix a few drops of tea tree oil in a cup of warm water and pour it on my head. I leave it in for a few minutes, then add my usual conditioner. I then rinse as normal. You can also just add a few drops to your shampoo.
  • Tea tree oil may be useful in repelling flies and other insects. A study found that after being treated with tea tree oil, cows had 61% fewer flies than untreated cows. (1)
  • Applying tea tree oil to your feet helps relieve athlete’s foot.
  • I hate conventional deodorant and find it causes breast pain. On all but the hottest of days, I prefer to use a natural deodorant made with tea tree oil and a few other ingredients.
  • Lice! I haven’t tried this but others have mixed lavender oil with tea tree oil to treat lice eggs.
  • Tea tree oil and colloidal silver are often mixed to treat boils on the skin.
  • Tea tree can be used for some pelvic maladies like vaginitis and yeast infections.
  • I have used tea tree oil for ringworm before, and it cleared up very quickly for me.

Keep in mind that it’s important to dilute tea tree oil appropriately with a carrier oil or water (depending on how you’re using it). If you don’t dilute it, it can cause itching, stinging, redness, skin irritation, and other skin issues.

Four Tiny Tweaks To Make Your Etsy Shop More Profitable

4 stupid simple tweaks to get more Etsy sales

It’s inevitable that after the Christmas gift buying season, nearly everyone running a shop is looking for ways to avoid the Spring and Summer sales slump. While to some extent it’s impossible to totally avoid the slump, there are ways you can improve your Etsy shop that will bring in more sales.

Assuming you’ve already done all the obvious thing that every article about getting more Etsy sales tells you to do (upload more products, share on social media, yadda yadda), I’ve come up with 4 really small tweaks you can use to bring in more sales on Etsy. They aren’t magic and they won’t work overnight, but given time, they will improve your chances of being found on Google, Etsy search and social media.

None of these changes will take a long time, and all of them are easy to keep up with as you add more listings. It adds a few minutes to your uploads, but in the end the increase in profitability will make it so worth it.

Keyword your descriptions

I’ve been working hard to improve my Etsy product descriptions. For a long time I had some templates that I used, but that left little variability and that doesn’t help your chances of being liked by Google.

So now, when I’m writing my descriptions, I try to write a truly unique description. Just one or two sentences that tell the customer (and search engines) what the product is and who might use it.

I also try to pepper in some of the keywords I’m using in my Etsy listing, as well as keywords I find on Pinterest ad recommendations.

You can find a lot of great keyword ideas to use in your descriptions with Pinterest’s ad creator.

Make all of your images Pinterest sized

Most listings I’ve found have short or square images, which means that the customers that want to pin your products to Pinterest have to either choose an image that isn’t optimized for Pinterest, or make one of their own.

Don’t make your customers jump through those hoops. Give them a reason to pin your products to Pinterest by giving them pretty images that are 6 x 9 in size. That’s the perfect size for Pinterest.

When you do this, you make your customers and the Pinterest algorithm happy!

Increase your keyword variability

Make sure the tags you’re using when you upload your listing aren’t repetitive. Further, make sure the tags across multiple listings aren’t repetitive!

If you have a lot of cat charms listed, you don’t want them all to have the same tags. So that you can be found in as many searches as possible, you want to use a tool like Marmalead or eRank to find a whole lot of tags you can use.

I do like to use a few keywords consistently, so most of my slime charms to have “slime charms” as a tag. Not all of them do, though!

Link to shop sections in your descriptions

Cross sell to your customers by telling them you have more items in your shop, and then include a link to one of your shop sections.

Links in your descriptions generally aren’t clickable, but good news! If you link within Etsy itself, it is clickable, meaning your description is a great opportunity to push your customers to find more to buy.

Tweak your shop for easier sales

Hopefully with these tips, you’ll get more sales and be found more easily on Pinterest and Google. The general tip is to make things easier on your customers and to give Google the information it needs to rank you correctly!

Which of these tweaks will you use? Do you have any other small tips to increase Etsy sales? Comment below and let me know!
