Recycle, eh!

Inspiration, DIYs, tutorials, workshops, & more for the crafty upcycling recycler

Once is not enough!

I am a writer, amateur photographer, clutsy crafter, and an enthusiastic recycler/upcycler with an ADD personality. That means my brain sometimes becomes so full of ideas that I don't have time to express or do everything I carry around in my head. I like nothing better than to find new ways to reuse and repurpose stuff others toss out. 

If you're looking for easy, do-able, brilliant, and FREE how-to recycling projects, DIYs, tutorials, tips, and ideas, you've come to the right place. 

Believe it or not, almost everything has potential and can be reused and repurposed. Something as mundane and seemingly useless as an empty plastic bottle has value and offers an opportunity for those willing to see it. 

I also run a series of upcycling workshops in Ottawa and Edinburgh where participants get to make stuff from that treasure chest of ideas - the recycling bin! If you're in either city, take a look at what I'm planning and come along for a great time.

Get Involved

If you've any ideas and/or projects (not matter how outlandish - in fact I like these best) you'd like to share or have any questions, please send them along to me at

Happy recycling, reusing, repurposing, and upcycling!!
