I know, I know. No blog posts in how long? Did we fall off the face of the earth (unlikely) or become mired in the Fenland Fog (quite likely) or take a break from upcycling over Christmas? (As if!)
Actually, we’ve been working our little fingers to the bone and attempting to tackle a couple of thorny issues in the process.
- We need more people to join the group.
- We need more local businesses and organizations to become our “partners in rubbish”
- We need to re-stock after Christmas and revamp our online venues.
- Whose turn is it to wash up the cups?
While we’re in the process of working these things out, here are some photos of the exciting bits we’ve been working on:
There were a handful of these:
And there were tons of these:
And there were quite a few of these:
There were about half a dozen of these:
And we’re just getting the hang of these
And starting to work on these:
On the other hand, there were also some of these…
But it’s probably best not to say too much about those.
So, in short, we’re still here and still upcycling. Next post will feature some ideas for what to do when your kids leave the caps off all their marker pens. How long the next post will take, more or less depends on how long the kids remain absorbed in their current game called “Flying Naked Barbie”. But I’ll tweet when it’s coming so you can assume the prime, edge-of-your-seat position.
And Don’t forget our Competition! Send us your rubbish or tell us how you upcycle your Christmas packaging and you can win some upcycled goodness of your very own! Mumsnetters have been on the ball, and our current winner sent in a whopping 132 sweet wrappers! But there’s still plenty of time, so get posting…
