I can see this in the bottomless pit that is the glove box! My oversized, slightly wraparound sunnies just fit.

Originally left out of order, but was quickly received. My Mom loves all things blue, she will receive this as part of her birthday gift.

Walking with my new backpack. Lightweight and great for biking or walking. This one's mine, but I have more in my shop.

About

Upcycling as a way of life

My passions are crafting, saving money at and reusing things I find at thrift stores, garage sales and auctions. I keep finding things that I can't sell in my supply shop but that I hate to throw away, so I decided to start making things out of them and offering them for sale. Finding ways to reuse things has become almost an obsession. Every time I go to a thrift store I see way too much that I can do something with. Storage space is now at a premium and I have to get to work using some of the stuff up!

    I have been crafting since I was 6 or 7 years old when my mom started teaching me how to embroider. I learned to sew in home-ec in 8th grade and high school. Learned to knit when I was 13 and had a friend teach me how to crochet when I was 18.

    Swears he's my son so he can get free room and board. Put him to work cutting up the clothing I'm going to upcycle. He also helps with shipping.
