DIY Vegetable-Based Watercolors!

Get ready to play with your food: We're making DIY vegetable-based watercolors!

Why use non-toxic chemical paints when you can harness the power of plants?

This is a really fun way to encourage creativity in children while teaching them the power of plants and to see their food in a different light!

Falling in Love with Nature with Grit & Pixel Photographer Marisa Jarae

Photographer/activist Chris Jordan made a point that deeply resonated with me: You cannot save this planet without also falling in love with it over and over again.

Conservation is hard work. Going green is hard work. Caring is incredibly hard work. 

So, taking that moment to breathe, to connect to the epic masterpiece that is Mother Nature, is vital. Let yourself wonder and fall in love, remember that we are of this wonderous and majestic planet. That love is what sustains us through the work.

No one's photography reminds me to take that moment more than bad ass adventure photographer Marisa Jarae. I could sing her praises all day long, but I'd rather let the work speak for itself. 

I'm taking a moment this week. Will you take it with me?
