So you think you can craft?

I stumbled upon this amazing find when I was checking out pistachio pictures on Google for a presentation I've been working on. At first I was like, "how does this have anything to do with pistachios?" Then, I took a closer look and was amazed that this entire flower was made out of pistachio shells! How freaking cool, not to mention resourceful! I love me some pistachios and always thought it seemed like a waste to just throw the shells away, they have this really cool shape and hard texture...but I of course am not creative enough to think of something like this.

So I clicked on the photo to find Rebecca Douglas of ReLoved Designs cute little blog. She is one crafty chick and what makes her cooler is that everything she makes has been recycled! From the pistachio broaches (That I bought 3 of) to her jewelry made from buttons and bottle caps, this is a girl after my own heart. Yay for environmentally chic!

I was so excited when I got my broaches in the mail, especially since EVERYTHING had been recycled! seriously, the broaches came in these cute little boxes crafted from cereal boxes, it was filled with shredded paper, undoubtedly from her own home. She even included a cute little handwritten note from a nutrition facts cut-out. So please, go check out, and patronize this chicky, she's pretty bad ass. And, if you want a pistachio broach tutorial, check out her blog!

Lucy even approved...

Yay for cute cubicle decorations!

  3. I seldom leave responses, however i did a few searching and wound up here "So you think you can craft?".

    And I actually do have some questions for you if you don't mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the responses appear like they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I'd like to keep up with
    everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of the complete urls of your community pages like your twitter feed,
    Facebook page or linkedin profile?
