Weekly Giveaway: The Wooden Bee!


Congrats to Cynthia Richardson~ aka: hofken! She gets to wear those amazing Sky Blue Beach Glass Earrings from North Coast Beach Glass! All the other entrants are probably jealous, but they are also very appreciated by us, Thanks so much for entering, promoting our Giveaway and for supporting Upcyclers! And thanks to Deb who created these beautiful earrings! You can find more sea glass treasures in her shop, so don't feel bad if you didn't win!

And now you have another chance to win something from Upcyclers~ The Wooden Bee is sponsoring our giveaway this week, and you can get something free and get creative! Bee's giveaway is a DIY kit for making your own sustainable wine cork coasters! You can protect your tables while protecting our planet, even the pieces for the maple wood frame for the coasters are upcycled!

The Wooden Bee has other choices of wood available for sale in her eco-friendly shop. Pine and cherry scraps have also been repurposed by Bee and her husband to become gorgeous products and components of creative DIY kits. Her shop offers a diverse choice of sustainable products for the home, as well as art and decor.

When Bee isn't 'busy as a bee' creating her goods, she is also spreading the word about sustainability and handmade DIY crafting on her blog, The Wooden Bee~ and now here on Love 2 Upcycle! Her recent article, Greener Shopping Lists, is the first of what we hope will many more to come in the future! She also participated in the Etsy World Craft Party this month and entertained over a dozen local artisans with her coaster kits, food and beverages. It was a wonderful success!

Bee and her husband are great examples of green living and are providing a lesson by lifestyle for their two young children. They make this seem joyful and effortless, inspiring others to carve out a more eco-friendly existence. It seems to be their nature to live hand in hand with nature.
