Creative Ways to Repurpose and Reuse

I've always had a passion for 2 things - creativity and old things. Growing up, I was a pretty good artist, but never really pursued it as a career or even an on-going hobby. Working with an architecture firm for many years in marketing, I discovered the love for rehabilitating and restoring historic properties. This turned into hunting for vintage pieces and antiques; sometimes painting or reusing them in creative ways. My style typically combines the old and the new. An interest in graphic arts has allowed me opportunity to design advertising, promotional items, signage, logos, and more. Reuse by Design was established to turn this talent into a way to share what I love with others who appreciate the desire to recycle, refurbish, repurpose, and recreate.

First up, Christmas ornaments created from cards. I could never throw out any of the cards I received from friends and family over the years. I always knew I would someday figure out what to do with them, and that day has come. With a little inspiration from online resources and through trial and error (a lot of error), I finally refined the method to the madness.

Your feedback and suggestions are always welcome, as I consider this a work in progress, forever to be improved upon. I’ll also consider custom orders if you have personal cards you want me to transform into your own sentimental ornaments.

I’m in the process of repainting some pieces of furniture and will offer those as soon as they are complete. The few pieces I have done so far I just can’t part with, yet.

Thanks for Shopping
