Everyday, our women are exerting their creativity in the One Mango Office and I've come to see what a crucial and important aspect of our lives it is to find ways to be creative. There's also something so sweet and personal about DIY (do-it-yourself, in case you haven't got the bug). We, at One Mango Tree, support anything of the sort!

Today, we want to show you something we're so excited to test out ourselves. While perusing one of the best craft-friendly sites in existence, Etsy, I tripped over a woman named Janelle Tompkins (definitely visit her store!) who recycles old thrift-store books and transforms them into journals. Brilliant!

If you'd rather make this yourself than buy it, we found a STELLAR resource for how to bind and create your own recycled, earth-friendly journal.

HOW TO: make a journal from an old book!

Get your thrifting on and show us your creations... I know I'm about to do the same.
