I will be the first to admit that I am woefully uncrafty. I am the girl who greedily accepts friends’ pickled beets, beautiful hand-knit scarves, and appliqued fridge magnets with nothing to offer in return. My go-to gifts tend to be things I am intimately familiar with — basically wine and novels.
However, lately I’ve been having a change of heart, inspired by my buddy, Denise Corcoran, whose crafting takes a turn for the environmentally friendly by repurposing old things into shiny new things. Denise calls this “upcycling,” and she will be offering a workshop Dec. 8 from 1:30-3pm here at NVCL on upcycling Christmas ornaments and stockings. Her enthusiasm and creativity is infectous, and I highly recommend you attend!
The workshop and supplies are free. Just bring your crafty mojo and be prepared to meet other like-minded people. All ages and abilities welcome. Also feel free to bring your own items for the workshop (including photos, old cards or gift wrap, magazines, etc).
Here’s to a more sustainable Christmas season! I’ll see you there…
