How obnoxious is the word, "upcycle?" If you answered very, then we can be friends.
We've been getting a billion catalogs lately and instead of tossing the Pottery Barn Kids and Land of Nod catalogs I have drooled over into recycling, I now hand them over to the Glue Monster for processing. He choosing which pictures should be cut out for collages (all of them) and then sets to making his beautiful works of art. Tada! I just need about twenty 8x10 frames and I will be all set. Upcycling.
