True Life Sea Salt and Pepper are great additions when grilling your favorite vegetables!

Bike to Work Week

This week is Bike to Work Week. Read why one True Botanica coworker, Heidi, bikes to the True Botanica office whenever she can.

Heidi with Bike

YES!! It is finally warm enough outside to ride my bike-and I’m going to ride it everywhere!!  I’ll explore my new neighborhood, run errands, grab an ice cream cone, RIDE TO WORK!  If you didn’t already know, this week (May 13-17) is “Bike To Work Week” and my personal goal is to bike my 25 mile round-trip commute 2 days this week, and at least once a week every week for the remainder of the summer.  There are so many great reasons to bike to work: eliminate hassles with parking, avoid rush hour congestion, reduce air pollution, and of course I must mention the great health benefits!  Why pay for a Gym membership when you can get your cardio in during your commute?  The first step is planning your route- safety should be your top priority.  Then commit to a date, check the weather obsessively (including wind speed—very important), wake up early, and go!

DIY Mother’s Day Gift

As Mother’s Day approaches this weekend, one True Botanica coworker shared her DIY gift idea. Since her mother is an avid tea drinker, she decided to decorate a mug and pair it with her mother’s favorite Green Tea. Check out the pictures below for a DIY project or, take mom along and make a fun day of it!

Mug with stem lines

First draw on the lines that will serve as the stems to the blossom tree.

Mug with paint for dots

Next, apply polka dots to the lines to serve as the blossoms.

Applying polka dots to stems

Use the back of the paint brush to apply the polka dot blossoms.

Finished mug before kiln

The mug is now complete and ready to be processed in the kiln!
