I'm on TryHandmade.Com

Here's the link I promised you in the last post & for those that didn't see the last post.........

Rebecca Hadfield writes the "Going Green Column" for tryhandmade.com & she contacted me last week about featuring my "upcycled" pieces in her column.

(I'm VERY honored to have my work chosen for her Going Green Column!!)

If you'd like to check it out, you can click here!!

Sorry, couldn't do a blog post without a photo :)

On another note, I had an elementary teacher from Massachusetts contact me to see if I was interested in participating in their Teracycle program & taking a few chip bags that the students had been collecting off their hands. (Of course, I jumped at the chance!!)

Both Rebecca & this school teacher found me through my Etsy shop, which is fabulous!! Ever since I've opened my shop, I've had this underlying fear of, "is my work getting seen" "am I placing my work in the right places for people to see me?" So when opportunities like these two happened, it was SO nice to know that someone out there other than my closest artist friends & family weren't the only ones visiting my shop!!

i think this is so great. classic packaging we love for its nostalgia and modern packaging design can be so sophisticated and wonderful that it is great to see these designs being "celebrated" and reused.

Tracy, I have always wanted to do something besides throw away the christmas coffee packages our local vendors produce each year. I'd love to send you some at the end of the season when i have drunk all my coffee. Would you be interested?

I would VERY interested!!

I've been wanting to use coffee bags in my work but unfortunately, I don't drink coffee, so the only coffee bags I have access to are the ones at my "day job".

Cool! i love how they look! It's good to go green. Do you think that I have gone too far in recycling plastic tampon applicators? LOL
