Get Crafty without Breaking the Bank!

There is no need to spend lots of money to be creative. Our world is full of amazing crafting materials.

In my new course you'll learn lots of great ways to create with the left over materials we encounter every day. Start a Creativity Fodder box to hold those things that are normally disposed of—and then upcycle them to create craft projects, like this adorable robot!

Give it a try! Start looking at materials differently. It's fun, creative and good for our environment.

I can't wait to see what you create.
