Artfully Upcycled.

I'm all about saving this great planet of ours. Granted this big hunk of rock is gonna be here far and long after we are gone. We aren't going to kill this planet but we may well kill a lot of beautiful things on it and ourselves if we dont act responsibly. So I thought this weeks blog would feature artist reusing and recycling things in creative ways.

  5. Thank you soo much for including my creations. I'm very honored to have a place on your blog. I love Etsy. It is the most supportive place to show your work.
    I love creating funky pieces out of ordinary objects. I am obsessed. Anything can be made into wearable art. I have a crimp in my neck from scouting the ground for more material.
    Thanks again.
