Announcement   EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENT
THANK YOU for all the orders! <3. I am back and have started to work like a mad woman. Your orders are important and I am filling them all as soon as possible. Please send me a convo if yours is urgent and I'll slide it to the top of the line. Otherwise, I appreciate your patience. YOU ROCK!


The circle does not end. What you throw away gets repurposed and turned into a new and beautiful object. The next memory is born.

A focus of my approach to art is repurposing and recycling. Besides the obvious benefits to the environment, repurposing textiles, wood, metal, paper – even plastic grocery bags – allows individuals and groups to afford to create art. In the Mississippi Delta, the poorest region of the poorest state in the United States, lack of money for materials should not be a stumbling block to artistic expression. By utilizing recycled items, by repurposing materials, I make art available to anyone, regardless of their socio-economic status. I believe art is not only a “connector” for educational endeavors but also a conduit for human and community relationships. This shop is a in a constant state of flux, every week new ideas are morphed into signs, skirts, cards and hoodie tops. Keep checking it out. I change it up all the time.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my cross body bag! Arrived timely; beautifully presented; it felt like Christmas receiving a stunning piece of art with the wrapping and the bows with fabric streamers and spool! You are gifted, Yolanda. Thank you so much! I will be back! Your "mission statement" inspires!

My focus and approach to art is repurposing and recycling. I teach this philosophy in all my community classes too. Besides the obvious benefits to the environment, repurposing textiles, wood, metal, paper – even plastic grocery bags – this allows individuals and groups to afford to create art. Where I live in the Mississippi Delta, the poorest region of the poorest state in the United States, lack of money for materials should not be a stumbling block to artistic expression. By utilizing recycled items, by repurposing materials, I makes art available to anyone, regardless of their socio-economic status. I believes art is not only a “connector” for educational endeavors but also a conduit for human and community relationships.
