Change & Explation

I have shut down my main website and have gone back to Blogger.
Well I have been on a "Crafty Hiatus" for sometime now - I was going hard crafting for a very long time. I mean my mind was going 24/7 with ideas and I was making stuff every second of the day that I could . Well as you can image after years and years of doing this something snapped- I read a book lol. 
Sounds silly I know but you have to understand I have an obsessive personality and when something "Sticks" I go balls to the wall with it. First was spinning yarn, then making trashy treasures, now it's reading. I never read before June 2012 (maybe 4 books in my 40 years) then I read a series of books and I didn't stop there I read 180 books from June to December. Last year I read 380 books. Do you see what I mean by obsessive? So when the reading started my crafty brain turned off :(.
I still make stuff but it's when asked to do it. I feel like my craftiness has started over because I am back to crocheting - which is what I started with at the beginning. 

So with all that said I do think I will get back to my trashy treasures at some point and I didn't want to shut my site down completely. I am planning on posting crafty stuff in general here and will lean towards the upcycling goods. So if you have anything you want me to feature just email me and I will post it!

Thanks for sticking with me!

Eco Baby Line

Since Apple Pie has come along I have to urge to make stuff for her~ of course I do that's my nature right!
So I decided I want to start an Eco Baby Line of stuff~ Handmade of course.
I was going to keep it under my business name Radical Recycks but after much thought I feel it's better under it's own name (
I have yet to open up shop I wanted to make sure it was all stocked up first. I only have a few of the million things made that are swirling in my head but I know it will come together soon. 
I also need to make my logo~ I have an idea just have to figure out how to make it lol!
These are some Teething Necklaces made from Old shirts.

Stay Tuned for the Grand Opening (shooting for April 1st since my Feb 1st deadline has pasted lol)
