Sneak Preview: Small Business Saturday

up·cy·cle
ˈəpˌsīkəl/
verb
past tense: upcycled; past participle: upcycled
  1. reuse (discarded objects or material) in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.
    “the opportunity to upcycle trash, or turn it into new products, was vast
     

So what happen when you mix creative souls with “the green police”?                             (My mom used to call me that.) You actually get a most spectacular exhibit called “Lost & Found” – My sister and I have been working feverishly to create something special for you. Special not only for the holidays, but also to celebrate the art of opportunity. Old becoming new. 

I will admit, I have learned a great deal in the attempt to create this exhibit. It is definitely more of a challenge to make old into new than it is to start with sparkly new everythings. But it has been a gift to me and hopefully Christine. I look at things differently, I brainstorm and I am already excited about next year. (SAVE the DATE! It will open  November 25, 2017)

I hope you will join us. There are pretty things for you and yours- packaging for you to put your pretty things into, decorations, and even jewelry. We have worked with antique buttons, books and a plethora of other items (even a few wine corks~) There are dishes and glasses and tea cups…. I believe you get the idea, right? 

This is a most wonderful time of year…. please support small business and support the artists at Create Art 4 Good. The really awesome thing is that we actually support the community with every single sale. 

See you Saturday

with love and peace- 

Susan

P.S.- So this is an example of what we are up to. Pages of books used to create bottle cap necklaces. I used an old music encyclopedia to create most of these. Some of the handwriting belongs to some of our most famous composers. I embellished a bit with some hearts. It was quite a bit fun! Come visit- you can see for yourself!
