Coming soon.....What the HELL Wednesday!

What the HELL Wednesday!?!

You guessed it! It happens on Wednesdays! Every Wednesday I will feature an item that I didn't buy at an artsy fartsy craft store. I will show you what I have made, or a featured artist has made with the item. Some things to come....zippers, eyeglass lens, watch backs (yummy), silverplate flatware, resistors, slide mounts.....All kinds of fun off the wall stuff.

I'll also just happen to list this item in my Etsy shop in the case that you might want to try your hand at it. Now, what would be great is for you to send me pics of what you have done with these same items.

I've always loved using "freebie" items. This started more as a necessity rather than "going green". I was a single parent for many a year, so this was the way. Recycling, repurposing, trashion, altering, whatever you want to call it. I call it fun.

Your blog looks like great fun, Mary! I have a bunch of stuff I haven't parted with, knowing I could do SOMETHING with it. Or someone else could....

Mary -

This is a great idea. I've got a bit of a problem (according to my kids), in that I can't throw anything out. But, I seem to also run dry on ideas of what to do with all this stuff. Just reading your blog reminds me of many things I've seen done by others, and inspires me to join in your What the HELL fun.

Thank you!

Laura
