Everyday Upcycle Facebook book launch this Friday.

I am VERY excited to share that I am hosting an online book launch for my new book Everyday Upcycle: 15 projects using everyday items.

Do you have mounds of items you know could make great things? Are you scrapped for cash and looking for easy ways to make gifts? Does your desire for unique decorating ideas clash with available cash in your wallet? In Everyday Upcycle: 15 projects using everyday items you will learn to make fun and environmentally friendly decorations and gifts.

I share quick and easy crafting ideas using materials found in almost every home. I encourage readers to take advantage of what they have instead of buying new from big-box stores.

In this slim volume you will learn:

  • Turn children’s pants into flowerpot bottoms
  • Mark your plants with flatware
  • Salvage broken mini-blinds
  • Help a little seamstress

You know that jelly jar has more life in it. If you are looking for ways to reduce waste but need ideas and instruction, with 13 full color images this is the book for you.

There is no need to register for the online launch, but if you’d like you can using this link: Free Ticket. Registering for your Free Ticket will give you an opportunity to win a free copy of the book.

Get your questions ready! I will try a live stream through the event page.

So wish me well!

I have four mounted photos I call “Windows.” Two are desert scenes from Arizona and two are forest scenes from West Virginia.

I also have a recycled student desk. I have a few more things to do with it.
