Here’s another project sheet for you!

Here is another project sheet. I love to upcycle as y’all know and have so many CDs that keep piling up that I really needed to come up with a cool idea to upcycle them! That is how my CD cards were born. You can customize them for pretty much any occasion and even add small gift cards into the case. They make super cute gifts 🙂

I also wanted to share another new project with y’all. I have developed my very own mobile application! I am so super excited about it! It runs on Android, Windows Phone 7, BlackBerry and the iPhone and iPad! You can get it here for free: aupcycling.mobapp.at It has free videos, projects, a gallery and much. Also follow us on facebook

My Upcycled Scrapbox Desk :)

I love the scrapbox products. I have always been fascinated with doing a lot with little spaces. That is one of the reasons I love the Ikea stores. Can’t get over the fact that they can fit so much in so little space. It’s like they plan entire homes in the space I would normally think a single room with require.

I am sorry for being MIA recently but a lot has been happening. I got married for one 🙂 and very ill as well :(. It took me quite a while
