Arts, Crafts, Upcycling & Eco Issues at Tea and Cake for the Soul

I come from that working class generation of the 60s and 70s, and have always had a strong reuse and make do ethic.  People didn’t have everything that they wanted back then. Life’s amenities weren’t so disposable. It was long before people became aware of what modern day living was doing to the planet.

I can’t bear waste, and as I have quite a creative mind, I love to repurpose things and make them into something useable again.

Here at Tea and Cake for the Soul, I like to share ideas of how you can reduce waste and repurpose things rather than throw them away. I show you some of my upcycled furniture projects, and fun ways to make art from things that are broken or no longer wanted.

I write about important eco issues, some that are very much in the media at the moment, and some that might not be so openly discussed. Many of my articles will have money saving opportunities as well as an environmental impact.

Here are links to all the posts that I have written so far that come under the Arts, Crafts, Upcycling & Eco Issues category. If you’re a new reader I hope you’ll check them out, and if you’ve been following for a long time, you might like to revisit an old post for some inspiration.

There are lots of ideas, just click on the title links to read the posts.  I’d love to hear your ideas too.
