I just found an idea (how I wish it were my own) for recycling Altoid Mint boxes.  Of course, me being me, the idea will get kicked up a couple of notches and will be a new product in the JournalJunction line on Etsy.  So everyone, PLEASE don't throw those tins away because I will use, use, and USE them!!!

Will turn into one heck of an organizing tool for your handbags and totes.
Thank you Better Homes and Gardens for the inspiration - and the ability to take your basic idea and spin it around a little.  YeeeeeeHa!
 
 
After doing NOTHING constructive last night (shame on me) I figured this morning should be a 'get back on track' morning.  So after completing a few small tasks the other eyewear banners got brought out and had their pictures taken.  I hope the ideas in my head will work with some of these.  If they don't, I'm not out much, just have to go back to the drawing board is all.  :)  Take a look at the fun vinyls and fabrics that are itching to get played with......

Juicy Couture sassy vinyl (LOVE the colors in this one)

Kate Spade classic vinyl (Kate Spade and her clean lines...)

Stack of fabric and vinyl from LaFont, Prodesign, and Nine West. The LaFont has me itching to get behind the sewing machine because of the unique colors and print.

Lightweight vinyl OGI (yes, I own a pair of these myself) Ignore the PVC in the pic, that's just to hold down the curl of the fabric. This one is already designed in my head and next to visit the sewing machine. The model in the print has bright red lipstick on and that will show up on the back of the bag for some pop. WAY neat.
So please follow along the upcycling process with me.  Full week of my real job, but watch out because there's a 3-day weekend coming up!  I see a lot of Law & Order and a sewing machine in my near future.  HA!

Get creative and have some fun - live out loud, and please color outside the lines.
 
 
I know, it's been a couple of weeks since my teaser on how a discontinued Oakley eyewear banner could possibly be reworked.  Well, after many ideas (most that just wouldn't work) this is the final product.  And to be honest, it really didn't come out too bad!  Just don't know what I'm going to do with it now.  :)  Any ideas???  HELP!  Someone NEEDS to take this off my hands!!!

Just wanted to give you a little tease as to something that came up yesterday.  A new recycling project!  Only going to show you the item that is going to get upcycled and re-styled into something hopefully a little fun.

This is a wonderful vinyl mesh promo that was destined for a recycle bin at work.  Yep, you got it.  I nabbed it and can't wait to redesign this into.....????   You guess!  This thing is huge, that's why I photographed it on the floor.  You can get sort of an idea of how much material there is here to work with.  SO FUN!  So keep your eye out for the finished project hopefully this week.

Keep creating, keep busy!
