Dear Creatives, Happy Friday to you! Today is all about re-purpose. How many times do you hold something in your hands & wonder how would you re-use or recycle it? Hopefully quite often as our planet needs us to be more using of the things we have. This spring when it warms up a bit I have a few projects to tackle & share with you, but today I have other peoples diy, re-purpose inspiration to share with you, along with my Feature Friday Link-up! So if you have anything to inspire us with please add it in to the linky. Here are a few things that have me inspired to re-think items this weekend when spring cleaning into a re-purpose item (s). Then onto the Feature Friday.

Our Big Earth

This is something I would love to do to have on my window sill in the kitchen. It gets really hot here in the summer. Between the air conditioner if needed & heat indoor plants don’t do well. This would be the perfect solution to creating an environment plants can survive in along with recycling. To view the how to visit Our Big Earth.
