One of the neatest concepts that I have come acrossed since becomming obsessed with handmade goods is repurposing. It's so amazing to see all the different ways crafters take materials that would either be thrown away or recycled and make them into something beautiful and unique.
Funky Recycling is one of the neatest shops of this nature I have come acrossed. Funky Recycling breathes life into old aluminum cans with their imagitive jewelry, ornaments, and magnets. I love their Hello Kitty Monster can necklaces and Coke cow magnets. If you live in the Las Vegas area stop by a Funky Recycling craft fair booth and bring a used aluminum can, you will be rewarded with a free gift. Hooray!
