About

I am totally in love with projects that involve giving new life to something old. I think it is so much more creative to use what you already have in a new and unusual way!

I love repurposing for three reasons:

1. It is thrifty

2. It keeps stuff out of landfills

And finally,

3. I'm actually really lazy (and not that skilled)... And repurposing often makes things way easier than starting from scratch--you often don't have to cut out a pattern or sew a hem, for example!

I tell people that laziness is the mother of invention, at least on my part!

Hey there! I went to KU for grad school after going to Baker for my undergrad... Lawrence is probably my favorite town in KS!
