About

Although I was born in the big Apple and started out living up north, Florida is my heart and home...my three daughters are "GRITS" (girls raised in the South!) and since I was sweet sixteen, so am I! Now I have three granddaughters who are Grits, too! (And six grandsons~ but I can't call them Brits now can I? ;)

I have always believed in upcycling, recycling and repurposing since I hate throwing anything away. Maybe it has something to do with being born in the Year of the Rat~ "pack"-rat that I am! I love my studio full of whimsical, vintage and upcycled materials of every media and material imaginable~ when I'm in there, I can let my creativity flow and the ideas take form.

I came up with the name of my shop one day when I was thinking about a collage and magical came to mind, and then I thought: Collagical. I bought the .com for it when a Google…

♪♫•*¨*•.♥ ♥ ♥ I LOVE 2 UPCYCLE! ♥ ♥ ♥.•*¨*•♫♪
I've been helping to save the planet since the early 70's! When I was little, my school did a roadside cleanup~ the trash on the roads broke my heart... From then on, I was hooked on environmental issues! Today, I am thrilled to see the upcycling movement exploding on Etsy! I decided to give others who upcycle a virtual place to gather, so I started Upcyclers, an Etsy team whose members Love 2 Upcycle. A communal spirit of sharing support, resources, ideas and advice to further the upcycling movement is the foundation of the team and its primary mission.
