It started with beads...
Perhaps it was my background in theatre and costume design setting the stage. Faced with early retirement in 2009, what does one do? Lordie sakes, I had not touched a sewing machine in 30+ years, much less owned one.
So my adventures in sewing and crafting began slowly and I continue to learn....while supporting local charity efforts.
reclaim - recycle - reuse - repurpose - reimagine
For me, it's all about finding a useful way to reuse something....for fun, fashion, and functionality. You can find many examples of ways to repurpose. Browse through my photo albums on the SO 'n SO Gals ScrapArt page.
Baby quilts - great small projects for scraps
Home decor - pillows, curtain, runners, etc.
Upcycled fashion - adding beads to shoes
Refurbish thrift shop treasures
