MondayUPs



Monday's can be rough... But I'm here to help.

In celebration of my 15th year selling my handmade stuff... 
I am going to be featuring things I've seen on blogs, on the internet, in books
...wherever inspiration strikes! On making new items from old goods..
hence, MondayUPs (upcycling)...

Music has saved my life... on more than one occasion.
I love all kinds of music... and feel horribly nostalgic every time I see a record... or a record player... and the like.

And so... I thought I would feature some cool things
you can do with old records today.
(Course, my number one thing to do with old records... is PLAY them!)


What I have done for today's post... 
is gathered a bunch of photos in a collage;
just to give you a feel for what all can be made:



clocks, bracelets, lamp shades...
pendants, coasters, organizers...
cupcake stands, purses... guitar picks... 
so many ideas!

And here is a local artist and friend of mine;
Paula Manning-Lewis.
Among her many talents... is a knack for painting lovely designs 
on old records.
