Weekly Giveaway: Art Again!

Wow,  this has been a crazy time for me~ moving, changes to our format, and a new leader for our team! Bee, The Wooden Bee, is now an amazing addition to our leadership! I know you are already familiar with her eco-conscious consumer reports and now she will be sharing and tweeting our updates! She is also starting a new feature on Sundays, so tune in to check it out!

We are back in business with our Weekly Giveaways now too! That's the change in format I mentioned. Saturdays will be the new day for our giveaways, and we will be starting back up with our DIY series on Fridays again as well. Makeover Mondays, Tuesdays for Treasuries and How-To's and we will continue our Meet and Greets on Wednesday! This is an exciting time for our team and I look forward to a successful holiday season as well!


Now, all that said, we are so excited to offer this week's giveaway from Art Again!
She has created an amazing upcycled necklace from a computer chip that you would swear was a natural organic material from the look of it!The colors are gorgeous and the craftsmanship is impecable...



Michelle, the owner and creator of Art Again has not only sponsored this giveaway, but she is also offering a 10% discount coupon code for this week as well! Just use the code: UPCYCLE (in all caps!) to get your discount!

Here's a little about Michelle and her shop, Art Again, in her own words:

"It all began in 2007 with a flattened bottlecap-turned keyring. My passion for giving trash materials a second life as art has grown ever since. As a quilter for 20+ years, I enjoy adding fiber and stitch to my work. I am also passionate about hand dyeing and just love working with the brilliant colors.

I am a wife and mom to two teens, with a third, long-term foreign student who also lives with us. I am passionate about animal welfare and happily share my home with a rescued dog, two formerly-stray cats, and two rescued rats!

I support the no-kill shelter movement and donate 10% of my sales to local animal groups that share this passion. Please see my shop announcement for the current beneficiary.

Our home is smoke-free. I take pride in what I do and hope you will join me on the journey."



Here's a peek at her shop!




















We hope you will join Michelle on her journey as well, and are so proud to say she is a a member of Upcyclers! It is so generous of her that she is sponsoring our team and that she even donates 10% of her sales to animal rights groups! Right now she is giving "Chance" a chance~ he is an adult Great Dane that is recovering from near death by starvation and you can follow his story on his Facebook page: Giving Chance a Chance!
