Creating unique handmade items from upcycled trash while reducing the impact of environmental waste.

My re-purposed art developed from a sailing trip my husband & I took, May 2009, around the Croatian Islands. When we would sail into port, we’d stop at the markets to purchase food for that evening & the next day’s sail. In those Croatian markets, the opportunities for junk food were very minimal, there were only 2 options for "crisps" not 20, so we ate a lot of those chips on our trip. The artist in me decided to keep those empty bags & that “surely, I could do something with them & create a souvenir from the trip.” After I created a quilt block for the wall, I then questioned, “what about a handbag or a wallet”?

Then I realized, “what about all of those candy wrappers, chip bags, soda bottle & beer labels that we toss into the garbage every day?” With that, my repurposed art line developed! I am fortunate to have old and newly found friends from the United States to Europe save & send me their crisp (chip) bags, their soda & beer labels, which gives me the opportunity to work with materials that I would normally not have access to.

Through these old and new friends, I share materials that I don’t use. I send my bottle caps to an artist who use them to create bottle cap jewelry and the soda/beer/wine bottles get recycled or given to a home brewer to reuse. I try very hard to not let anything go to waste.

To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information (for a custom order of a dog collar, for example), if you contact me directly. I will never sell any of your personal information mentnioned above or use it to contact you for any marketing purposes. It is solely used for the purpose of communicating with the buyer to make sure, the item is received.

I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

-as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

-if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

-as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.
