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

Upcycled Awesome #71 (and a Question)

It is time to post your best upcycled project in my weekly list of all of the Upcycled Awesomeness on the web.

I am really excited that you have stopped by. I want to thank everyone for linking their upcycled projects up. That being said I am afraid that the link up party is too limiting, and that not enough people are linking up because of it.

So do I do a name change? Open up to pretty much everything goes? Or do I stick to the whole upcycled/repurposed linky party? Please let me know in the comments what you think.

That being said here are the top three projects from last week:


A to Being: Goodwill Lamp Makeover

Sugar and Spice: Mullet Chair Makeover

When putting up a project make sure that:
  1. You made it.
  2. You link to the project you want to share with us. No linking to ETSY sites. (although if you sell things on your site through ETSY, etc. that is okay just don't link to your ETSY site.)
  3. Put my button somewhere on your site or on the post you are linking.

That's it! Thanks you.

Thanks so much for featuring my chair makeover! Crafting has been a bit slow here this week. It's been the house of flu around here. Can't wait to see what everyone else is up to.

I think what kind of link party you have depends on what you really want to accomplish. It will necessarily be smaller if you are limiting it to certain kinds of projects. Even the old family photo magnet I interpreted very loosely to be able to use it. (The photo is old and upcycled.) If it's really important to you to have recycled items, then maybe a smaller party is better for you. Thanks for giving us the opportunity to share out ideas with each other.

I love the upcycled element to your party. I know there are some blogs that have separate section for different types of crafts (like recipes, refashions, crafts), but I don't know if you would want to do that - or maybe it costs more. but it could be a way to be distinctive but also attract different projects.

I love the whole upcycle thing! Your party always has some neat ideas!

Hi Robin! Many thanks for the invite!

About your question, I think the name is fine. And I think the theme is fine. My only suggestion would be to elaborate just a bit on exactly what you consider upcycled/repurposed.

And I don't think you can go wrong with allowing crafts/hand mades in there. Many of the hand made projects are actually upcycling and repurposing.
Thanks For visiting ReMadeSimple blog I linked up! Happy blogging friend :)
