Creative Recycling Linkage

December 9th, 2009

After an intense period of creating over the weekend, I've been taking some time to rest with the hubster who has the week off. We've been enjoying a lot of relaxing, movie-watching, and reading. It's been lovely.

I'll share some of what I've been up to soon, but in the meantime, I've collected some super fun ways to play with the totally optional theme of recycle this month for the Creative Every Day Challenge:

* I love the look of this plastic bag wreath seen on Vickie Howell's blog. So cute with Target bags. I also loved Vickie's instructions for turning greeting cards into tree ornaments!

* Recyclart might be the coolest recycling find I've discovered this month. It chock full of amazingly creative artwork and diy projects that utilize recycling to make super cool things like this vintage button rings, inner tube vases, and beach plastic artwork.

* This cool project shows how to make a wastepaper basket out of...waste paper!

* Here's a great interview with artist William Wagenaar, owner of Reclaim2Fame and creator of super fun recylced, sculptural creations.

* I enjoyed this Craft Sanity podcast interview with author and clothing designer Cal Patch, someone who strives to make all her own clothing and do as much repurposing as possible.

giving you a shoutout over at my blog 12/10

glad you are spending some quiet, quality time with your husband. i’m in need of that as well. there has been so much creative output in my life these past several weeks that i’m ready to balance that with some inner stillness and rest. this weekend is open with no plans and i’m excited to simply be spontaneous and enjoy the holiday season with my boys. take care!

I have my recycled wreath up that I made last year. I tied in a little tinsel too. Thanks for the link..kept me from refinding the instructions for a friend who asked me yesterday how to make it! Perfect timing.
