New Upcycle Ideas 710


Every Friday, 7 PM through Wednesday 11 PM Pacific


This past week the west coast of BC has been hit with severe cold weather. I thought I’d simply hunker down inside and all would be well, however the change of atmosphere had me feeling ‘off’. I could do things, but I wasn’t my complete and creative-feeling self. Yesterday I finally gave in at 4pm, and crawled into bed to watch shows until bedtime. It was a nice rest! Just weird and unexpected.

In other news, I’ve continued to clean, and even bought a new camera toy I’ll be using to hopefully enhance my photography or filming. I’ll share more about it… as soon as I can get moving again! Until then, I’m babysitting our hummingbird feeder every 2 hours and just trying to keep moving forward at any capacity.

So how are you doing? Are you back at it again or are you moving slow like I am?

Anyway, I haven’t created one new thing this year as of yet, but I’m bringing out supplies to attempt some inspiration. However I did end up updating a good post that is very applicable to this time of year and costs nothing to make…

  1. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful upcycling ideas. I’m waiting for the sun to come out and give me some energy!
    From a gloomy UK x

  2. Thank you for hosting the party. Hope you feel more rested & get back to your creative self soon. I always love your projects. And, I’m excited to hear about this new toy!
    Have a great weekend.

  3. I am also tending to my hummingbird feeders. It is in the teens and low twenties here in Washington state. I have been exchanging out the feeders every half hour and they are frozen. Do you have any tricks? I’ve seen where other people make a light box on bottom of feeders to keep liquid from freezing. Weather is supposed to warm up in a few days

  4. Happy New Year! I once again get to post in your party 🙂

    I was wondering why the linked up photos in the party display as different sizes (at least on my PC). Do you know the reason?
