Come here to get ideas on how to reuse and recycle ‘stuff’ and hand-make art for people.

RE-PURPOSE A JAR AND UNUSED WRIST-BANDS:

When you make tea in glass jars how do you protect hands? Use those un-used wrist bands to protect your hands from those hot jars. They work great on any size jars whether pint or quart size.

MORE ARTSIE PROJECTS FOR SPECIAL GIFT-GIVING:

I make these lovely FAMILY TREE TRI-FOLD with the leftover scraps from my bookbinding. I cut pieces of the pretty papers and use for decorations. The back of the TRI-FOLD is a montage of moments and the insert is a little book of passport photos from the family tree.

SOMETIMES EVEN THE CONTAINER YOU BUY ‘STUFF’ IN CAN HAVE A NEW LIFE

This little container that held a tiny speaker becomes a lovely growing container. When the sunflower greens reach harvest height cut at soil level and add to your salad.
