BESTeam Feature: : UpcycleRecycleReuse

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I am a saver. I can't bear to throw out things that might have a good use. I love converting what would be waste materials into new materials or products of better quality or a higher environmental value.

Apart from creating things, what do you do?

What inspires you?

Paper Materials, Pretty pictures…
 How do you get out of your creative ruts? 

I do not have ruts so much as I do not have enough time for all my ideas to come to fruition.

How did you originally get into the business of making things? 

I have been making things since I was a little girl. I have been selling things almost as long.

Is there anything else you would like to share? 

Upcycle, Recycle, Reuse is where old products are given more value not less. The goal of this shop is to prevent wasting potentially useful materials by making use of existing ones. This reduces the consumption of new raw materials when creating new products. Reducing the use of new raw materials can result in a reduction of energy usage, air pollution, water pollution and even greenhouse gas emissions.


What does handmade mean to you? 

Being creative, loving what you are doing, and output for my creative energy. I can only cook and garden so much.

How would you describe your creative process? 

Ideas just pop in my head and I struggle to make them all a reality.

Where would you like to be in ten years? 

Right where I am.
