Upcycling is the art of turning something old and funky into something new and funky.

More flowers

I might be a little single minded at times.  I've made 32 hair clips and barrettes so far.  Some of them have more than one flower.

How does your garden grow?

Mine is full of FLOWERS!  

I've been learning a new skill the past week, sorta.  I've been brushing up on my crochet, and I've learned to make about 4 or 5 different pattern crochet flowers.  I wanted one for the brown and pink dress from my last post.  Well, it was fun, and easy, and sorta different, and something I've always wanted to know how to make.  I turned a bunch of the flowers I made over the weekend into hair accessories this afternoon.
