Upcyclers Giveaway Extravaganza!!

Since I'm sponsoring a Giveaway for Upcyclers that offers an entry for following my blog~ and since I haven't posted since (ACK!) June, I thought it best to catch up with you!

It's been a crazy year keeping up with our team of Etsy sellers who Love 2 Upcycle, whose members now number over 1600! But I love it, and all the effort is so worthwhile, especially with all the gratitude from thankful members, and knowing we are making a difference is the best reward of all!

This past week, we offered a Countdown to Christmas Giveaway Extravaganza with daily chances to enter to win upcycled goods from our members. Each giveaway has five days to enter and the final deadline is Midnight, Christmas Eve! I'm giving away a purse charm themed 'Shop Til You Drop' that seemed perfect for the Holiday shopping rush~ 

You can also enter our other 4 Giveaways by clicking on each of the following pics!


It's times like this I wish I could enter our Upcyclers' Giveaways~ but I'm thrilled to offer these fantastic Etsy items to our followers on Love 2 Upcycle and here on Collagical!

Good Luck to all who enter and have a  
Merry GREEN Christmas!

Man Up...Cycle!

Dad's Day is coming up and gift ideas are a welcome sight for frustrated shoppers looking for that perfect something for the hardest to please recipient! Maybe that's why we buy so many ties~ sheer frustration drives us to settle on an easy out. Luckily, Etsy has an amazing array of choices to please almost any father, and this is one time of the year that Upcyclers truly shine! One of the hottest trends right now are handmade masculine gifts upcycled from industrial by-products and salvaged materials. Here are just a few from Upcyclers, an Etsy team whose members Love 2 Upcycle!

Hoppin' Down The Bunny Trail~

Easter's on it's way...

And the best thing it brings is spring! With all it's wonder and glory~ budding blooms and fresh new outfits, Sunday best shoes and fresh cut hair, slicked back or curled like days gone by. When all the silly resolutions of New Year's have gone unresolved, Spring gives us another chance to be fresh again. No bright lights, horns or wild promises, spring relies instead upon sunlit mornings fresh with dew on flower blossoms...


Spring is nature's way of saying, "Let's party!"  
  ~Robin Williams

April prepares her green traffic light and the world thinks Go.
~Christopher Morley, John Mistletoe

Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush.
~Doug Larson

If I had my life to live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the fall.  ~Nadine Stair

Dance as if no one were watching,
Sing as if no one were listening,
And live every day as if it were your last.
