Pink Giveaway - Item #6
We're already to the sixth giveaway! This is the last one for today, stay tuned for tomorrow's final three. Make sure you enter all the other giveaways going on, too!!
This one comes to us from ReduxRedux. Here is something [GREAT] about them!
Our mission is to try to do as much as we can with materials that have had previous lives. So we look to things like old jewelry, paper, and supplies that others have discarded. It's really fun to challenge yourself to create with the things that fall into your lap!
I started crafting as a way to relax. I am a recovering workaholic. When I realized that I could no longer remember what to do for fun, I knew it was time to reconnect with my creative side. Crafting helps me keep my life balanced.
We reclaim and reuse materials whenever possible. Old jewelry becomes a window decoration. Paper scraps get used to make tags and embellishments. Plastic bags get made into garlands and pom-poms. Petals that fall off of silk flowers at the craft store get upcycled into embellishments for sachets/aroma bead tins. Junk mail envelopes get stamped and embellished and turned into tiny gift bags…You get the idea…It is a fun challenge to look at something that someone is ready to throw away and figure out a creative use for it.
They are a great, eco-friendly shop! Wahoo! This is what they are giving to one of you fabulous readers:
Windies, decorative strings of beads and charms that add joy to a window or mirror. All Windies contain elements that have been recovered or repurposed making each one charmingly unique.
Adorn your life. A dash of color. A hint of sparkle. A touch of whimsy.
Specific beads and charms will vary, but will be various shades of pinks. Windies range in length from 12”-17”.
