Fun and Fashionable!

At 'Trashed', we have had lots of practice being fashionistas lately! 

These expired gift cards got a new life at the bracelet making class...

What a conversation piece!  They are so stunning!

Also, the 'never-to-be-looked-at-again' pages of the phonebook were transformed into flowers for wearing...

Such little cuties!  They did such a great job!

What fun it is to light up the entire street in honor of Earth Day! 

So many of my students and visitors created these wonderfully inspirational luminaries using recycled milk jugs, and they are so impressive!  There are some clever and crafty folks around here!

***side note***
Here is a glimpse of the collecting of milk jugs...thanks Meredith...oh if they could see you now!

Keeping in mind that I am not a photographer, the finished product really was beautiful!  Thanks to all who participated and came out to witness!  We will do it again next Earth Day...Double Time!
(the spots are from bubbles...I'm not that terrible of a photographer)

Curb-side Transformation!

This bench was found sitting on the curb, just waiting for the garbage collectors to take it to it's final resting place in the dump.  Not much to look at, but it definitely had good "bones". 

After a huge fabric donation (thanks, Joni and Jordan!), I knew that I could bring it back to life, so I gave it a little makeover.  Now it's going to have a new home right in the studio!


Dumpster Diving!!!

Dumpster Diving!!!
Not ashamed to get "trashy"
