I feel very strongly about the whole re-use, re-purpose, and recycle aesthetic.
To this end, I occasionally make new products for my Etsy shop featuring previously used items.
Envelopes and stationary
Several years ago... I started looking at what we all use and discard with ease.
I love to recycle... and came up with a way to use pages from old books that otherwise were in bad condition. One of the results... were some fabulous envelopes.
Over time... I began expanding my line of recycled paper envelopes to include envelopes made from comic books, magazines, children's books, maps, brochures, menus, scrapbook papers... and fabulous old texts.
I make sets, and also sell random lots.
Currently, I am phasing out my line of handmade guitar picks made from recycled store gift cards.
As of today, I am only including them as gifts in orders.
Another line I am phasing out, is that of handmade scarves.
As of today, I have a buyer who is interested in buying the remaining 50 scarves I have in my inventory. These are all handmade by me, in a simple crochet pattern. Yarns used, are a wide variety of acrylic blends, alpaca, and salvaged materials.
