Interview: June of Creations By June

The downside of this contest is that we have to say good-by to some pretty talented people each week. As much as I am not a fan of it, I love reading their exit interviews because you learn so much.
So Meet June from Creations By June:



1. Can you tell us a little bit about you and your fabulous blog? 

My name is June and the best thing I have done is have two great boys! They are now older and I actually have time to do thing I enjoy rather then be the chief chauffeur and bottle washer, as well as work full time. I have always loved to create new things and in the last year have really started to sew more.... even trying new things that I have never done before. I am also tired of the disposable mentality you see a lot. Instead of fixing items, it is toss them and buy more, and nothing is as well made. So I have started to re-use, upcycle, rework and even joined Robin on the 6 month challenge of not buying any clothes. My blog started out as a way to share with friends and family that do not live near by, but it has expanded and I really hope to continue to do so!

2. What is your favorite item to recycle. 

Clothes is probably number one, next is furniture! I love how you can take something that no one wants or thinks is beautiful and change it into an item that is wanted

3. You have $5.00 to go into a thrift store, what crafting goodness do you buy and why. 

Do they have chocolate? (I feel like you read my mind)

Ok, back to crafting.... fabric...in the form of table clothes, sheets, curtains, blankets, clothes... oh and notions-- lace, buttons, purse to take apart and don't forget the bargain bin!

4. Where do you get your recycling inspirations 

Sometimes, I just look at something and know what it will be.... sometimes it depends on what I have on hand. Etsy, Blogs, magazines and catalogs. I love to see something and try to make it my own

5. Anything else you want to share?

The best thing about upcycling is that you are not limited by anything... what was a shirt can be a skirt; sheets, a dress; doilies a new collar, don't like the color, dye it.... there are no wrong answers!
