One year of blogging! It’s a blog-aversary so I thought I’d re-blog the original that got me started on this journey. Up-cycling or repurposing has become quite popular and I’m sooo glad! I’m a huge fan of it because I feel I’ve been doing this all my life. And it just feels like the right thing to do, you know save the planet and all. Plus I’ll admit I feel like a bit of a furniture super hero when I take something that’s falling apart and, wah-laaaa, make it beautiful again.
It’s not for everyone though, lots of planning involved, probably should have a wee bit of creativity, the ability to pay attention and being super handy. Me, I look at something broken and think, “I can fix that and make it better than it was.” It’s a challenge! That might actually be ingrained into a woman’s DNA…I can fix that. What woman hasn’t dated that one guy and thought, “I’ll be the one to straighten him out.” Seriously?
Anyway, I find a piece I can work with and make it pretty again. Once that part is finished my anxiety kicks in along with self-doubt. No one is going to like this, everyone will judge it and it will never sell. Anyone have those thoughts? No, just me, ok. I didn’t realize these turtles were popular again.
