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. So why am I here, writing about being back and then, probably ghosting for another two years? Life has been rough. It's been painful and overwhelming. I am so thankful for you my readers, or what is left of you. I am so thankful you are reading this post. 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

Exit Interview: Michka's Creative Solutions

Hi! I am Michkas from Michka's Creative Solutions:

I love the whole essence of this contest and was so thrilled to be part of it :).

I only started my blog a few months ago and am terrible at posting on a regular basis.  However, with my postings as limited as they are at least you know you are getting the very best of what I do! (At least I hope so!) :P  I started my blog as an outlet for my creative side- as a place to share my ideas for any interested and to give my problem solving skills a creative challenge.

I've always been big on being innovative and using what you have.  Also I'm super thrifty (cheap)(& a little poor$) and so upcycling is the best!!!  I don't have the best sewing skills but I'm very adventurous and am enjoying the opportunity to learn as I go.

If I were stranded on an island the five crafting items I would take are: 
  • A solar powered hot glue gun 
  • My cutco scissors
  • Mod podge
  • I don't know what else? I would carve sticks into crochet hooks, make yarn from grass & seaweed,  really there are no limits to what you can create if you just think long and hard enough. 
My favorite project so far has been my CapriSun purse.  
I just beam when each girl we gift it to tells me how much they love it. And then I beam even more when I see them somewhere and they have their cute little purse with them! 
I do not currently sell my creations, although I always have these grand ideas to. People tell me I should sell my stuff but I'm not a mass producer, I'm a designer.  I start a project & then I get all these ideas for other projects halfway through & so I start something else. If I had a good business partner then it could happen.
Thanks for having me Robin!  
Project Recycled was so fun and a great learning experience too.  I hope anyone out there who was inspired by my creations will venture out and try to make their own versions!  
The best advice I could give would be to just TRY and don't be afraid of failure.  Most of my ideas don't turn out exactly like I had envisioned, but sometimes (when I'm super lucky) they turn out even better,  and when they don't just think of what you have learned in the process!  
Happy Creating!
Thanks again Michka and congratulations on winning. We will hold another round of Project Recycled in September so please email me if you are interested in participating. I can not wait to hear from you.
