Upcycling

It's the new word when you make something out of something. You know, the green way to make art. I know, women have been doing it for years like clothing made from feedsacks and quilts made from old clothing. My Mom sews green grocery bags out of old tee shirts! Matt builds crystal radios with an oatmeal box! I am always looking at trash and found objects and see the human form that can be created into an Art Doll or better yet, these old wool sweaters made in to GYPSY CATS! The snowmen were inspired by one of my my favorite magazines, Cloth, Paper Scissors, made with antique bottles, vintage cake decorator tips, and random gatherings from my Art Bodega. Did not spend a dime to create all these wonderful new additions to my DEB DID IT Gallery. I am pondering setting up a DEB DID IT Blog or Etsy just to peddle my artwork...what do you think?

Peddle yourself purple, girl! Cute sells! And they are cute!

That's just ONE of the things I love about blogging - IT'S FREE! I haven't figured out why it's free. There must be server costs somewhere!
