What is Your Carbon Footprint?

I use this blog to feature my graphic design and illustration. Have been working on others things lately. Sketches and such and volunteering most for others. I have had a few trips with my marketing manager husband to desert locations like Las Vegas this December and . Arizona and California a few times in the last two years. My mind has been focused on the need to conserve our resources and what we are doing to this beautiful planet. Wanted to share this report.

Bull

I feel like taking the bull by the horns. Illustrated this for my church as we were preparing for VBS that year with Pastor Steve Seilig. His vision was to create a western town in each of the entries and really have a multilevel experience for the kids and volunteers.

Love our deserts and the beautiful landscapes that are desert. I am so against changing our landscapes since this is not a good use of our resources. Shaming those in Hollywood and most of California that create fake biospheres their property. Just the waste of keeping grass green in a desert just seems so arrogant.

My home here in Texas is a corer lot. It is a modest home in 2017 standards. My square footage is 1927. I used to think this was so small. I have so many friends with new homes of 3,000 to 4,000 square feet in gated communities. I have now seen that less is better. I have seven trees on my property thirty bushes and grass as well as perennials, tropical plants and an occasional patch of weeds. I need to be more water conscious with my landscaping. I am in Texas so I want all my water use to be responsible. I will conserve my energy usage and keep as many green oxygen creating  plants alive while living in a small carbon footprint. Keeping the bull excrement to a near zero level.
