First of all let me just apologise - oooooooooppppps i havnt written my blog for many many months must get into the habit lol
I just wanted to write to tell you all about my new recycle range and how it came about....... hope not to be too long!!
I work
with children form 3-10 yrs and am always looking for new ideas for activities etc.My superviser took me to a place called The Playforum - Many local businesses support them by donating recycleable materials such has card, paper, fabric, plastic containers, etc they then distribute these materials to our members through our scrapstores.

where you can buy items that have been given to the playforum to be recycled and made into wonderful things - i had a fantastic time and filled a whole trolley full of stuff for a small charge!

The children and I have made some great stuff with the items and it got me thinking of recycling to make unique items to sell ---------- hence my new recycle range !!!

i have been working on it for just over a week now finding frames, bowls,mats and much more that have been in charity shops ,car boots, jumble sales etc and given them a new lease of life with eyecatching recycleable materials and am really happy with the result - hope you are too!!!

Thanx for reading xxxx will not leave it so long this time! x
