Trash to Treasure

Cool Critters

As promised, my next upcycling post will be about animals.

Critter Coaster. Square body with 8 legs.

With eight legs, this coaster was supposed to be a spider, but when I showed my mom, she saw it horizontally as pictured above, and said it looks more like a crab than a spider. I must agree. Since everything is glued, I cannot insert another pair of legs, so this unique critter of mine is a crab with eight legs.

Summer’s heat and humidity had not provided any relief, so here is another project involving ice cream boxes.

Take Flight!

Take Flight! was my second goal, and with time and persistence, I was able to make it happen. It inspired me to do things that I have not done. It also serves to remind myself to spread my wings and fly because greatness is in my nature. In July 2020, I was one of many who conducted virtual workshops for a STEAM Conference. I donated Take Flight! and hope the raffle winner is inspired by it as I am.

Feel free to share ideas and creations.
