SCRAP Birthday Parties

Pin It Now! I host birthday parties at SCRAP almost every weekend.  The age ranges vary, but the creations are all pretty cool and the kids always have a great time.  This last Sunday a birthday party of girls made SCRAPpy bracelets and here are a couple of the more daring ones.  Actually, all of the girls made great bracelets and they all made more than one.  The party was a hit.

If you haven't heard about SCRAP before I will briefly tell you what it is all about.  I will also include their link so you can check it out for yourself.
SCRAP is a non-profit organization and its main focus is on reuse, specifically reuse of creative materials.  If you are an artist or a crafter or a little person that loves to create it is a great place to go and find unique inexpensive materials for your projects.
I hope you check it out if you haven't already.

Outlet Cover

Pin It Now!

Happy Autumnal Equinox!

I just wanted to share what I made last night on the full moon.  I moved into a house that has been remodeled at least once.  This house was built in the late 1800s and then was turned into a triplex sometime in the 1930s so there are a lot of little quirky things about it, which I love.  For one thing the attic, which is my craft room is just creepy cool! and the gas stove is vintage and I love that, too.  So one of the things I noticed around my new house are these plate covers that must have been outlets at one time, but are no longer in use.  Since I am a fan of decorating light switch covers I thought why let this little blank space made of plastic go to waste.  Why not add an image from a Carnation mother and daughter cookbook circa 1960 sometime to this cover and dress up the dining room a little bit.  Well, that is exactly what I did and now I am sharing this with you in hopes to inspire you to art-it-up whatever it may be.

Necktie Neckerchief

Pin It Now!

A few months ago I came up with this stylish new way to wear a funky reclaimed necktie.  I had made a few of these for gifts, but I now have posted one of them in my Etsy store!  The one that I was working on in the photo I actually messed up on.  Those darn snaps.  I think I will need to work on a couple more to perfect the method of making these, but I love how they look and I plan to make a lot more.  They serve a nice neck warmers, too, in those chilly months that are just around the corner.
where to put the snap?

Repurposed Wine Bottle

Pin It Now!

So here is a craft that I am getting back to.  I made a bunch two winters ago and then I stopped, but I made this one for my friend's birthday and now I am back.  I have made two more since and have more lined up.  I just need to gather up some more spray paint, which I will probably round up some partial cans donated to SCRAP or I will get some partial bottle from the ReStore.  My friend says you have to buy 15 cans, but I am sure I can use them up.


Pin It Now!
My name is Bece.  I have never had a blog before so bear with me.
With this blog I hope to share and inspire others with items I am working on and different ideas that I have.  Everything that I craft is made out of reused, recycled and repurposed items.  Please post comments.  I love to hear from people.  Together we can make beautiful creations and save the world!
