About
I have lived in Illinois most of life and lived in a outlying suburb of Chicago. I have dabbled in many variety mediums over 15 years but at the present my focus is recycling crafts.

I get a good feeling knowing that I am creating something that's not going to be wasteful. My favorite kind of handmade things are Christmas-related items, especially ornaments using recycled cards, paper, plastic and cardboard. My goal is to turn out ordinary household items to works of art..

This cute bag was made with felt and embellished with felt pieces that I glued on the bag. I used.. two squares of orange felt and doubled stitched 3 sides of the two with black thread.
