Just Like That, I am Back

 If I said I was back, would you believe me? Blogging is complicated, and there are so many "get rich quick" blogging schemes that make it look like you are a lost cause if you are not currently earning money blogging. And why are you even blogging if you don't have multiple streams of income and entertainment. If you don't have a brand? I do have this website, but I do not have Instagram, Twitter, TikTok (you don't want to see me dance), or whatever is next.  Heck, I haven't even updated this since before the pandemic.

I am so thankful that you are still committed to making the world a more exciting and more sustainable place.  Keep up-cycling my friends, and you never know, I might be back again with an

Newspaper to Crafting Paper

I love going to the Pittsburgh Children's Museum because they have this absolutely incredible art studio where the kids can make paper, screen print, and paint. I think I like this area even more than the kidlets do.

We make it there about once a year and I just loved making paper so much I went out and bought a paper making kit from a local store.

Well I tried it and it was okay. Was not so keen on the kit we bought and probably would have dine just as well grabbing some supplies from the hardware store and making the press myself.

The end result, well my daughter decided to decorate it with popcorn, so check it out:


Well it made for a good way to teach my children about upcycling newspaper into something a little more elegant and it was fun. Popcorn however does not make for good craft paper.
