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

Ikea Bags and Luis Valenzuela

So where oh where have I been?

In South Beach...

I am so not one for lavish vacations, but sometimes life takes you places that you never imagined you would be. I am so excited because I got to see this work of art by the amazing Eco-Artist Luis Valenzuela.

His art is amazing. He creates EcoArtFashions using what some might consider to be garbage. This dress was made entirely out of IKEA bags. I randomly stumbled upon it while walking around the Art Center of South Florida. I was so excited to see the ultimate in upcycled elegance. Honestly, I am truly inspired to make something out of a plastic bags. If I only had a boatload of IKEA bags hanging around my house. Oh well.

That dress would have to be itchy and hot! Those bags really are quite handy though!

So sorry. I just saw your comment about the up cycle party. Your comment wasn't posted because it went to mediator!?! Well, anyways, thanks for checking out my post and sorry I missed the party:) Let me know when you do it again and I will link up!

I would totally wear that, but I think Ginger is right--it would be very uncomfortable.

You gave me an idea, though. My daughter asked today if I could find a tent for her American Girl dolls. I bet I could figure out a way to rig up a tent out of a 50 cent IKEA bag!
