Repurpose, Recycle, Upcycle

Today is a warm, sunny day where I live and the main topic of conversation is back to school.

I suppose in the USA that is the biggest topic most anywhere.  School resumes in many communities over the next 3-4 weeks, which is quickly approaching.  Many moms are saying, "Yay!  I can't wait!"

When the kids go back to school many moms and wives look to getting the house back in order after the summer hiatus and chaos.  Some moms and wives might even look at sprucing up the decorating, even if they don't buy much new.  It is so popular now to upcycle, recycle and repurpose.  I came across some great ideas for upcycling and repurposing some common household items at Good Housekeepng.  I am betting you will find some things to do with those things layign around your house.  Here is the link .... Genius Repurposing Ideas

The other day my husband brought home a shelving unit from work for me to use in my studio.  It is one that he no longer needed but I could use.  It is wider, deeper, and taller than the one I was using.  (Of course I will keep the one I had, but use it in another way.)  Dh and I got it in the studio together and I have gotten it loaded up already.  Well, there is about 1 1/2 shelves that are waiting on finished stock to go.  I am so excited, even for this small thing, to be more organized and have a place for everything.

While I was restocking the new to me shelving unit, I rearranged some other things in the studio.  We have some plants that moved around, and a couple got moved outside.  I have a couple smaller tables and a small cabinet that can hold things that were moved to a new home in the studio as well.

With my small project of sprucing up a bit in the studio, I am feeling freer, more creative, and ready to get to work.  Which is a good thing.  I have lots to do to get ready for the fall.  The fall craft show season will not wait!  vbg

Are you doing something in your home to spruce it up?  Please feel free to share what you've done, even some photos!

God bless,
