Hi! It's Thursday and I am happy the week is almost over! The weather has been so nice the last day or so, that it triggered a "spring cleaning"marathon in my house :) It is hard keeping stuff organized with the renovation of my house still going on. So after going through items no longer needed and cleaning up my craft supplies I decided to do a quick tribute to the resourceful re-purpose artist!
Here are some great ideas from some Etsy artist who have put a new spin on recycling!
1. Large Circuit board clip boards by DebbyAremDesigns.
2. Gear head messenger bag by Crafterella made from fused trash bags! How cool is that!
3. Soda earrings by MademoiselleLemieux made from ..you guessed it soda cans!

(Above: pin cushion made from recycled fabric clippings)
I have been really trying to reduce the garbage my family produces lately. When you stop and think about things before you throw them away, it really starts to open your eyes. There are so many things that can be recycled, re-used, or re-purposed. I started putting a bag next to my desk about 3 months ago to catch all the fabric, thread,felt and other sewing clippings. It is truly amazing how much of these clippings I have saved! I have been recycling these clippings by using them as stuffing for pin cushions, sachets, and other reusable items. (Below: bag of clippings from the past month!)

Have a lovely Thursday everyone!
