Odds and ends

I like to find a way to recycle everything...boxes, old bottle caps, old paint, playing cards. When I was a young girl, I used an empty chocolate box to store my crayons and toys in.  As I got older I realized that I can turn old shirts into new ones, and that thrift stores were like treasure hunts. I have since come home with vintage books, old buttons, and even postcards from the 1800's!! All these things have been turned into art in my hands. How amazing is it, to be able to transform something old into something new!

Here is a bracelet I made out of sheet music...for all you musicians out there.

Anything can be art, so please reduce waste and support the cause.
