CAT Week

CAT Week: 22 – 29 April 2017 with Annelies @annelies.leask

Hi, Annelies @annelies.leask

Thanks Nat @littlecosythings for the wonderful week, loved all the Easter fun 🐰 

In celebration of Earth Day 🌏 today I thought it would be nice to base this weeks theme around recycle/reuse/repair. My kids are always finding fun things in the recycling that inspire them creatively and I love the sense of satisfaction I get if I can repurpose things I already have around the house or mend an old favourite item (and coming up with ideas for using yarn scraps is definitely an ongoing problem πŸ˜‰).

So I challenge you this week to use your creativity a little differently for this weeks theme #craftastherapy_recycle. ♻️ –

Happy Earth Day to you all! 🌏

Happy Sunday everyone! These beautiful earth tones caught my eye while I was browsing the #craftastherapy tag and I just had to share, aren’t they gorgeous. πŸ’™πŸ’š

Thank you to everyone who has already joined in with the new theme #craftastherapy_recycle I’ll be back in a bit to share the first grid. ♻️

Loving all the clever upcycling already being tagged to this weeks theme #craftastherapy_recycle. Look at these amazing makes made from things that might have ordinarily been overlooked.

Don’t forget to keep tagging to the main #craftastherapy tag too as I’ll be featuring photos throughout the week from there as well.

I picked this image from @jaqulinesplats for a solo feature from the #craftastherapy_recycle theme as I think the rings she made from vintage spoons are just amazing!! What a beautiful way to give something pretty a new purpose. πŸ’•

Keep tagging those recycled makes to #craftastherapy_recycle and have a happy crafty day!

So I have baby gifts on the brain at the moment as my sister is expecting her first in the autumn and I definitely want to gift something handmade. Aren’t these beauties I found tagged to #craftastherapy just the sweetest! πŸ’™

Happy making lovelies πŸ’™

Oh my gosh you guys I am blown away by how creative you are! Look at these brilliant ideas for reusing materials from #craftastherapy_recycle. Roman numerals made out of popsicle sticks for a clock, genius! πŸ’™
