Collective Upcycle Pop-Up Opens

Summers are for having fun, and nothing, I mean nothing, is more fun to me then being part of Collective Upcycle.

Yesterday was their Grand Opening celebration (complete with cupcakes and champagne!)

There was just so much amazing recycled art I was completely jaw-droopingly, floored. In a good way of course.

Check out some amazing upcycles ( oh and I had to explain to my mom yesterday what upcycling is so if you do not know it is taking something pre-loved and giving it a second life.)

Audra from Little Tiger and the Milk Bellied Princess
My friend and fellow blogger Audra created these amazing fuzzy wigs out of felted sweaters and yarn remnants. She saw several of them make their way to a new home last night.

An adorable little high school student made these upcycled pins as a way to raise money to become a foreign exchange student.  Her mom and co-artist Maudy is a seamstress and I love how she inspired her daughter to take on this creative venture.

These are clocks from old records shaped like the state of Ohio! Awesome.

I could go on, but it is a nice day out, and the children need to get outside instead of watching television while their mamma drools over last nights amazing group of artists.

Please if you are in the Cleveland area check out Collective Upcycle at 6706 Detroit Avenue, Thursday - Sunday until June 24th. You will not be sorry.
