featured seller friday : 42things

This weeks featured shop is 42things. I liked this shop because it is very unique and features old discarded vintage items in a new ways. In the shop you will find upcycled and recycled paper crafts, envelopes, reclaimed paper beads, salvaged gift tags, die cuts, reuse, destash, cloth napkins, bookmarks, postcards, and scrapbooking supplies. 

It is full of crafty vintage goodies!

Check out the interview and some of my picks below...

Where did you get the idea to use recycled items to create your designs? 

I've just always had a sense of things being wasted and wanting to save them.

What has been your favorite find used in your creations? 

Wrapping paper, people use it, and save it or throw it away not knowing what to do with it... but the patterns and colours are so amazing!

Where do you get your inspiration from? 

... many places, my kids my husband, the items that need rescuing.

Tell me a little bit about your creative process... 

Well, I don't think I'm that creative, but the ideas just come to me as long as I'm open to creating. Each thing wants to be used... wants to be made into pretty stuff, fun stuff.

Can we find you anywhere else?
