My passion is to be creative. I achieve this by recycling everyday household items into re-purposed functions. I cook, clean, build and entertain, with that comes a wealth of imagination. There is always room for improvement in our everyday life and I try to find them.
Sometimes things will become created out of need. You find yourself in situations that an item, a room or an outdoor space is screaming for an inexpensive improvement. In these circumstances you reach out for ideas and solutions. The possibilities can be endless and rewarding.

Re: Toy Horse Upcycled into Garden Sculpture

My neighbors couldn't believe it was a toy horse when I placed it outdoors. I had to show them the photo process to prove it.

Thank you! :)

Re: Junk Yard Step Chair Redo

Thank you! I used memory foam for the seat for extra cushioning. It's comfortable for sitting work.
