About Sassy Eco Bags from the site-
Sassy Eco Bags are uniquely designed handbags, purses and totes. Each bag has been handcrafted from discarded coffee or tea bags from area coffee houses. By rescuing these materials and reusing them, they are kept away from dumps and landfills. The materials used in each bag are durable as well as attractively functional. I hope you enjoy the bag.
Feel free to feel good about helping the Earth and looking Sassy at the same time.
Sassy Eco Bags came about from the idea that if we can lighten our Carbon Footprint and lessen the amount of trash we throw into dump sites, we can help the Earth. If any of the trash we produce can be utilized for fashion, function and fun, then let’s go for it!
Bags are available in a variety of sizes, styles, colors and schemes. Please contact me by email or phone if you are interested in placing an order or if you would like more information about Sassy Eco Bags.

Don’t worry Joey, GMG has nothing to worry about. Even though I will be posting some Great Stuff! This Blog will be following the progress of Six Artists participating in the “Sketchbook Project” all of us either live here in Gloucester or have Ties here. Deb Clarke can explain it better. Check it out below.
From Deb Clarke;
We are 6 intrepid sketchbookers with a common love of gloucester massachusetts that have decided to participate with 17,000+ other sketchbookers in “The Sketchbook Project”. This began with Elizabeth Bollenberg asking me (deb clarke, her mom) to get her a sketchbook so that she could participate in the project. I ordered a sketchbook for her and one for me. My goodmorninggloucester friend and student Paul Frontiero ordered one. Then my friend, co-worker, and goodmorninggloucester friend Sabine Ocker ordered one. Then my friend, now living in Palm Springs and goodmorninggloucester friend Helen Anne Lind ordered one.
my personal approach…i’m going to start posting regularly on it after i deliver eb’s sketchbook to her tomorrow. i have some fun ideas, and of course, since i am an artist and am used to stretching into unknown territory, i’m going to dive in, dive down deep, then re-surface. whatever i do, i trust it will be full of surprises, with unexpected consequences.
at least this is one art object that i won’t have to store and take care of after it leaves my hands.
We invite you to follow our progress towards the successful completion of our sketchbooks.
Anyone can participate, you don’t have to be an artist! If you would like to participate in the sketchbook project too, click the sketchbook project link. If you would like to share your sketchbook work for The Brooklyn Art Library’s traveling ‘Sketchbook Project”, we would be pleased to see your work and perhaps share your progress on our Blog; http://somethingsketchy.wordpress.com/ and here on GMG too.”

One of the Rocks I Sketched on and left on Pebble Beach was Found. Here is the Email I received;
“Cool, Found your Rock.. What a Great Idea! Love it! Keep it Up! Found on Sat. 3/27”
I was surprised with the nice emails I received commenting about it. I thought it was a little Silly. But I guess you never know what will interest some people. Maybe because it’s FREE?
There is still one left. It was left on a Barrier Rock not far from the one that was found at Pepple Beach in Rockport.
It’s a little smaller than the one that was found. If anyone finds it and would like their photo on GMG just give me an email, It’s on the Rock. GOODLUCK?
Look for some more Art Rocks Strewn about Gloucester Soon.
I need a Name Like Sharon came up with for her game Where’s ZAT. Hmmmm how about Find ZIT? Maybe Not.
